|Dapper Day Spring 2017 | Vintage Tropical Floral Dress & Melissa Velia Bow Belt|
Last time Elana and I hung out a couple of months ago, we paid a mini visit to Ashley (#flocktogetherforever). We were talking about Dapper Day at Disneyland (Elana and I had never been), when Ashley mentioned there was a whole expo dedicated to all things Dapper Day--and it was free!
So we went (and got dressed up for it too, of course). I deliberated for a long time on what to wear before deciding on a tropical-themed floral dress I had thrifted. Luckily, my new Melissa Velia mini bow belt went with it perfectly (isn't it adorable? get it here). I also wore a boater hat, a thrifted Zara bag, and pink skimmers with little hearts on them.

The expo was a lot larger than I expected. There were so many awesome vintage and vintage-inspired vendors and boutiques, mostly clothing, but also jewelry, shoes, barbers, a bar, and some entertainment too. The attendees were easily the best-dressed people I'd ever seen in one room (special shoutout to the glamorous ladies in their mink fur coats and perfect hair in 85 degree weather). Tip: there's no such thing as over-dressing for this event. Promise.
We ended up doing a little shopping, then went in search of dessert. All in all, a perfect Saturday.
Huge thanks to Elana for the photos and for being equally as anxious/awkward/silly as me. It's why we're friends.
