Is there anything better to do on a nice Sunday afternoon than dress up and go to Epcot with a good friend?
Well, probably, but going to Epcot is always a fun time anyway.
You may remember Lauren from my post about going to Universal two weeks ago, and she’s back again (remember what I was saying about not being able to get rid of her?) for another park day, this time in a different park.
Lauren and I went to Epcot for one of the last weekends of the Festival of the Arts, a new festival that started this year and was all about, well, the arts! Compared to Food & Wine or Flower & Garden, it was definitely small in comparison, but it was actually really good and we had a great time eating our way around the world!
We couldn’t really decide on a cohesive theme this time around so it was vaguely Valentine’s Day themed… sort of? What’s funny is that we ended up totally switching outfits, I had originally picked my red Harley dress to wear and Lauren had brought a pink one, but had this Trashy Diva dress for me to try on and I liked it so much, I wore it to the park. This is the Gia dress in the Lovebirds print and I can already tell it’s going to be my gateway into the Trashy Diva world…
As for the rest of my outfit: hat is vintage and purchased from Etsy, purse is vintage and purchased at a vintage market, the ribbon is just from Wal-Mart (I bought it for a different outfit last year) and my shoes are the Jessica Simpson Mandalaye flats, purchased from Amazon.
Lauren, on the other hand, ended up wearing my Harley! She’d never tried one on, so I told her she should when she got to my house and she liked it so much that she ended up wearing it to the park, instead of the pink vintage shirtwaist dress she had originally planned to wear.
Of course, we then set out to do a mini photo shoot in the UK pavilion (AKA my second favorite, after Canada!) to take advantage of the pretty backdrops and the nice lighting.
The lipstick I’m wearing here is Bésame Cosmetics 1969 Dusty Rose lipstick, which is quickly becoming my favorite shade and I need to get the full size lipstick ASAP. Look how beautiful it looks!
Look at Lauren, posing like a pro. When we first went to Universal, she was saying she didn’t really know how to pose but she definitely learned more quickly than I did! It took me quite a few tries to figure out what worked for me. Oops.
Of course, I couldn’t let the blog post end without a weird picture of my face, right? Right.
Lauren’s dress is from Pinup Girl Clothing and she’s wearing Bésame Cosmetics 1941 Victory Red lipstick (which is coincidentally my favorite lipstick ever).
We had a great time eating and drinking our way around the world, and I do wish we could have gone one more time! Sadly, the festival ends this weekend and we just didn’t have time to make our way out there again.
