VLV 16: Preparation Post 1

I wanted to share my newest Viva dress with you all because I am so terribly excited. I am now the proud owner of this Alfred Shaheen polished bright cotton hawaiian dress! I have wanted a Shaheen for years but am too top heavy to fit into... well, every single dress I have seen before. Finally last night my dreams came true all because of Micheline Pitt. Thank you Shaheen gods!

I really can't wait to wear this number at VLV16!





I'm headed to Vail for the weekend so have a beautiful weekend everyone!

Baci Tutti!

    1. It has been a constent look for a Shaheen that would fit me. If I were a 34-24-34, my search would have been over years ago!

      Good luck finding a Shaheen though!

  2. Every year I'm quite afraid to see blogging gals that are preparing their suitcase 2-3 months before VLV!!! I still don't know what to put in mine... 3 weeks with small luggages: 2 friends weddings + VLV, I'm becoming crazy planing everything!!! I'm asking myself what will be the weather in march, moreover it's always so cold inside the Casino.
    This dress colors are so bright, love that!!!

    1. Wow, that is a lot of time and events to pack for and so little luggage!

      It does get pretty chilly in the casino. I still dressed like it was warm because of all the dancing and just took a swing coat with me.

      Good luck with your packing!

    1. You should come to VLV!

      How did you go from Vegas to NY?

    2. I would have never left Vegas if it wouldn't have been for marriage. I think that is literally the only thing that could drag me away:) I can't really come this year but maybe next year:)

  7. How terrifically lovely! I've swooned over their dresses many a time before myself, too, and just adore your gorgeous new pink and green floral number. That pattern is so cheerful and sweet.

    1. I am pretty excited about it! I do love the color. For me the selling point is the neckline.

    1. I couldn't pass it up because it fit and I felt like I'd never find another that would! Even though the price is a killer for me!
