Rooftop Rendezvous Vintage Fashion Show

Friday night I had the opportunity to attend the Rooftop Rendezvous Vintage Fashion hosted by Sandro and Tati. The event took place on the rooftop of the West End 25 apartments with a gorgeous view of the Potomac, Georgetown, and Downtown DC. It was a perfect poolside location to check out some great summery vintage looks (the swimwear was my favorite). Check out the pictures below. Sadly, this was an event which made me realize that I need to save up for a new camera. I still managed to find a few diamonds in the rough. Enjoy!

The location itself was gorgeous and really made me reconsider living in a town house. Perhaps my landlord will decide he wants to put a pool on the roof.

The event also included an Opera singer, so awesome. I'm glad I managed to capture his hand movements.

The Fashion Show:

These two outfits just make me want to go to brunch and then shopping at the farmers market. Perfect for a casual summer Sunday.

I love the bright print on this skirt and that the blue matches his hat. I'm really happy to be seeing more bright prints like these. There is just something so happy about them. And I will never get enough of necklaces with huge beads.

Sadly this was the best picture I got of this orange knit dress. As a knitter I can appreciate the work that goes into a bulky knit dress, especially one that looks as sexy as this one.

The lighting at the time that this dress came out was perfect to show off the sequins. Such a fun look for a night out.

This dress makes me want to go out on the lanai with a pitcher of Sangria. The only thing missing for me is a big floppy hat. I think the best clothing tells you where to wear it and this dress certainly does. One of my favorites of the night.

Another of my favorites was this lace bathing suits. It looks so great on this model. The sheer effect is sexy without going overboard. Lovely!

These two outfits have convinced me that the next time I go swimming at night I must wear a bathing suit with white on it. Specifically white piping. I will never get lost!

One final time around the pool.

The After Party:

Two of the fashion show guests Sarah and Bailey. I liked their outfits and got them to pose for me. Bailey is a recent graduate of the Art Institute in Fashion Design. I love Sarah's use of the red lipstick trend. It's a nice color contrast with the black of her dress and accessories.

Sadly, I didn't get a good picture of this fabulous gold dress during the show. The model kindly posed for me along with Chris Rushton and Ninette Oommen who were responsible for the gorgeous hair and make-up.


  1. Thank you! I was pleased with the ones that turned out, but some of the outfits sadly did not make it into the posts because the pictures just didn't turn out.
