VLV 18: Sunday Afternoon

-Continued from our VLV 18 series-

Sunday morning (more like afternoon!) found us back at the pool for one of our favorite VLV events: The Tiki Pool Party! Once again I was asked to help judge a swimwear contest and this time it was the main event, the women's swimsuit contest. I was in good company, as the owner of Lucy B Swimwear (this year's host), model Anqelique Noire, and model Lisa Love were also judges. I definitely didn't feel cool enough to be up there! 

The Sunday pool party is truly a spectacle. The event is so popular that by mid-day there can be an almost hour wait to get inside the at capacity pool area. But it's worth it! Who doesn't like poolside fun in the sun, with mai-tais and gorgeous women in vintage swimwear? 

This was another great year of ladies showcasing some of the finest in vintage 'suits. It's so much fun seeing them all but it's really hard to narrow it down to a top 3. We actually couldn't narrow it down to only three, so we chose the top three and an honorable mention. I wish everyone could win!

I wore a vintage southwestern print swimsuit that Zack got me for Christmas. I had a southwestern theme all weekend and I was so amazed to find a suit to go with it, and even more amazed that my hubbie surprised me with it. Thank you to Tim Hunter for this photo of me throwing lip balm into the audience. What fun! 

Stay tuned for our last VLV post about Sunday nights festivities!

  1. Just want to say thank you for posting all these stellar photos! Since I've never been fortunate enough to work it into my schedule to attend VLV, it is great to be able to at least see all the fun going on, plus all the fab vintage outfits. Love that swimsuit of yours BTW! What a fun surprise gift!
