Indiana Jones and an Andrews sister at Retro Festival

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hello everyone, it’s been a wonderfully roller coastery Saturday for us at the Retro Festival.
We had the most amazing time with our friends Chris and Diane and their darling granddaughter Kelsey.

We toured the vintage car show grounds, shopped miles of vintage markets, listened to wonderful music and danced up a storm.

I got my hair styled a la 1940’s up-do and took part in a “best dressed” competition! Oh my goodness that was a lot of hairspray and 25 bobby pins! But I bought a vintage Royal Air Force hat to go with my outfit and had to figure out how to wear it.

More cars! Wanna Bugatti?

We stopped by the Spitfire tent to catch the live show. These three fabulous girls, My Favourite Things, did an amazing job of singing and dancing.

Here is the little video I made for you:

If you like it, could you give it a thumbs up please?

My friend Diane took this photo of us just as we arrived.

And we’re already planning to come back next year! 😀

    I can hardly stand it, I want to move there! You might not have won the final best dressed but you two stole the show as far as I am concerned. I hope Chloe gets her Pacer in the future. I would love the Zephyr. I loved the whole video, in fact I forgot all about the fact that I was supposed to go slice red onions to soak in milk for an hour for fried onion rings tonight–M.F.K. Fisher’s recipe.

    Can’t hit publish without saying that your guy had some pretty smooth steps on the dance floor!

    Oh you both look so fun! I love the outfits of that era and your hairdo was perfect. Can’t imagine all those bobby pins and hairspray though. I hope you’re having a wonderful summer Veronica, I was so happy to see your comment today. Thanks so much for visiting. …maybe someday when you come to Southern California we can finally meet 🙂
