Retro Tropics

I just got this dress on Saturday, but I already couldn't wait to wear it immediately. I picked this up at Dapper Day Expo, which was an absolute delight. Erica from Sweets and Hearts met me at my apartment, and we had the best day trying to look cool among the pinups. It was both our first time, but it definitely won't be the last. Neither of us could afford to go into the parks, but the expo has gotten so big that there's almost no need to anymore. There were a ton of vendors, including everyone Unique Vintage to Sidecca to Unicorn Crafts and more. I finally got to meet Melanie from Femme De Bloom there, as she had a booth set up, and she was just as adorable and sweet in person. We also met up with Ashley from Southern (California) Belle and had a mini Flock Together reunion, which is always a treat. 

Since Erica lives pretty far, we figured we should make her time in Orange County worth it. After getting some food from Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney, we went to The Loop for ice cream and churros. I have to admit, it was well worth the hype. It turns out that it's only about 10 minutes away from where I live, so I will definitely be going back.

I definitely wasn't planning on picking up any dresses from the expo, but Retrolicious was having a deal if you bought two, so Erica and I each got one. I have no regrets. This dress is basically everything I've ever wanted, and I think it's easy to understand why I'd wear it the next day. Plus, it's so fun paired with equally bright shoes.
