So as more preparation and to continue getting ready, I am going to share with you photos from last year. It was a tough decision for me to share some of them, as they include my ex-boyfriend, whom I met at the event. But some of the photos are too pretty to not post, and meeting him was a special part of the event for me at the time.
This vintage green wiggle dress is what I wore on the first day I was there, Saturday. I love the way it hugs my curves perfectly. The photo above was the first time I met Scott. He was leaning against the jeep at his camp and I remarked to my mum how I thought he was attractive. She came up with the ruse of asking for a photo with him as our meet-cute.
The pink floral dress I wore the second day I went, on Sunday. Scott and I spent the whole day walking around and inevitably got our photo snapped by many passers by. The above two photos are taken by a gentleman who wanted us to pose by a Jeep.
I love this car so much. I hope one day to have a beautiful old car like this. But I would definitely have white wall tires.
I even was lucky enough to sit in this beauty. I guess dressing up pays off. Even though for me it isn't so much dressing up, as much as wearing my normal attire.
A candid shot of me fixing my hair in the mirror of a Jeep. How awesome is the name of that plane?
From another angle and in colour. I still really like this one as well.
Last year they even had a gorgeous statue of the infamous V-J Day in Times Square photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt. This is one of my absolute favourites, as I am sure it is for a lot of other people. I was even gifted the poster by Scott when we were dating because he knew how much I love it.
I'd love to re-create it this year. Maybe I can find myself a sailor and get the guts to do it, even though I won't be wearing white...
Only 4 more days! The rain better hold off or else!
