For our last night in San Diego Patrick and I went out to dinner and drinks with the lovely Suzanne (of Sweetie Suz) and her husband Dave. After dinner at a swell Mexican restaurant we went Bali Hai, a Polynesian restaurant right along the water, for drinks.
You might remember Suzanne from Tiki Day at Disneyland. She’s the gal who started it all! So it was a pleasure to be able to visit with her again and talk about their recent wedding and honeymoon in Hawaii. I hope our paths cross again soon.
I have strict packing rules when traveling, and didn’t bring any jewelry to match my tiki dress, as it simply wouldn’t fit! So talk about a simple outfit! But regardless of this outfit’s lack of accessories, the dress is one of my favorite thrift store finds! Yes, this dress was indeed found at a thrift store! And it’s a true 1950s tiki beauty! I couldn’t believe my luck when I found it, and that it fit like a glove! And it was a great price too! $7.99!
Well, that wraps up the San Diego posts! I am so glad I had the ability to tag along on Patrick’s business trip. I came home with treasures and I had a wonderful time with Carla, who I bonded with over not just our mutual love of vintage, but also Disney and cosplay! A triple hitter! I was able to discover, for myself, fresh, new places in California that I had never been to before, and want to explore more. Then capped off the trip with the evening with Suzanne and Dave.
And while this may be it for our trip to San Diego, that isn’t it for California! Patrick and I will be returning next month for a trip to Disneyland. Which we will be driving to, and making many stops along the way! As we are now car owners! I am beyond excited to revisit some places I haven’t seen since high school (especially excited to shoot digitally, as opposed to film) and share these places with Patrick. Plus go to Disneyland!
