Art, vintage fashion and Hispanic food....It doesn't get much better than that. This last weekend, my sister and I went to the Retro Festival at the Museum of Latin American Art. The festival had classic music, delicious desserts, beautiful cars, and vintage fashion. The Retro Festival was to celebrate the new exhibition, "Dreamland: A Frank Romero Retrospective." In addition to the live musical performances, face painting and food, everyone was dressed in clothes from their favorite era. It seemed like a perfect opportunity to wear my dress from SheIn.
SheIn sent me three dresses in exchange for a fair review. I chose this multicolor geometric dress because of its 60s inspired look. I ordered a size large. The dress was a little big for me. Sometimes, I notice that dress sizes run small, especially when making online purchases. What I like about SheIn is that the dress sizes are true to what they say they are. The next time I purchase a dress from SheIn, I will be ordering a size medium. Other than the dress being a bit big, I loved it. The material was soft and flowy. The dress was the perfect length and the design is unique. I don't see too many dresses with this design so I definitely stood out, even when everyone was dressed from a past decade. Another plus about SheIn is that the clothes are good quality at an unbeatable price. This gem of dress only costs $13! Can you believe that? I would pay at least $20-$35 at another store.
The Retro Festival/ The Dreamland: A Frank Romero Retrospective Experience
It was absolutely worth the drive to Long Beach. Sometimes, I am not the hugest fans of museums, but this exhibition is one of my favorites. Romero's use of colors and neon lights work really well together. I believe this is one of my favorite exhibitions that I have ever been to. His artwork is eye-catching for the general non-art expert public (a.k.a me). The festival was small, but entertaining. There was a number of different food stands and entertainment. The best part was to see the creative outfits that people put so much effort in doing. There was this one group that did such a good job dressing up vintage that a crowd gathered just to take pictures of them. If you ever have the opportunity to go to a retro festival, make sure to get dolled up. You will regret it, if you don't. Admission to the festival and the museum costs a grand total of $0.00.
