Elvis and the Tiki Pool Party

Yet another fun eventful weekend behind me.  I took some time recently to update and personalize my blog.  I'm very happy with the adjustments if I do say so.  My neighbor, and fellow blogger (Modern Love Vintage, check her out!), took a walk over to Balboa park to check out "Twilight in the Park" on Tuesday night. It takes place all summer every Tuesday through Thursday nights starting at 6:15p and ending at 7:15p.

We were delighted to check out "Graceland: An Elvis Tribute". 

It was nice to get a good walk in and have a light at the end of the tunnel; Elvis!  He was a good Elvis impersonator and we even got to witness him propose to his girlfriend on stage.  

We definitely plan on going back this week as we found out Wednesday night will be a Motown tribute band!!!

Saturday me and two girlfriends attended the Cuties for a Cause Tiki Pool Party at the Lafayette Hotel.  We had a blast!  The Cuties for a Cause are a group of lovely ladies who organize and host various events around San Diego each with a charitable organization choosen to benefit from each event.  This event benefited the ArtHatch's Teen Program.  They are amazing and I admire the work they do for our community. 

We got there a little early as to scope out some good seats and we were definitely glad we did so as the pool lounge chairs filled up fast!  The soundtrack for the day was The Combos, Lighting Flash, Secret Samurai (one of my many local favorites), and Zombie Surf Camp.

I wore my vintage one piece with torpedo cup bathing suite (circa 60's), which i purchased last fall at Frock You.  It is such a fun suit to wear and they just don't make them like this anymore.

They had a raffle as part of their event and I was super lucky to walk away with not just one  but two prizes. 

The first prize I won is dinner for two at Imig's Kitchen which is located at the Lafayette Hotel.  The second prize won is this lovely semi-nude tropical pin up apron made by Alyce Lee's Rockin' Aprons.  So cute!

I will be putting this apron to good use when I atempt to make my honey some dinner tonight.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I will be posting a blog with my vintage finds from the weekend soon.

Till' next time,



  1. I love the Spreckels Organ but the Sunday concerts are kind of a snooze. It's a long haul for us, but I really want to check out one of these concerts - they look a lot more fun!

    1. Here is a link with the schedule for the summer.

  2. You're looking so pretty with your green dress. It suits you so very well with your red hair. I always think that redheads should wear a lot of green. The apron is quite fancy! Best wishes from Miss Maple

    1. Thank you hun!! That's actually a vintage mini dress styled swim suit probably circa the 1960's. Fantastic buy from last year.
