Nothing But Blue Skies
Well, I hope you liked Patrick’s first post in his new series! It will be a rather inconstant series (ie: not on a regular weekly or monthly schedule) but a series none the less! Additionally, with the move to southern California, I’m excited to share similar types of posts with you, ones of architecture and filming locations, unique landmarks and a slew of museums that the area has to offer. All fall into my passion for history and am eager to share with you all!
On Sunday, Patrick and I joined fellow vintage and Disney loving friends for an afternoon at the park.
I love meeting characters at Disneyland, but it has taken me awhile to finally meet Oswald the Lucky Rabbit over at California Adventure! He may not be well known to most, but he was created before Mickey Mouse.
For those who are not super familiar with Walt Disney and his history, Oswald was one of Walt’s earliest creations, but in 1928 economic hardship and bad relations between Walt and a producer meant that Walt had to let Oswald go. However, on his way home Walt came up with the idea of Mickey Mouse. Since then Oswald was held by NBC Universal, until Disney’s current CEO, Bob Iger, expressed a desire to bring Oswald home, and in 2006 Disney negotiated for Oswald to return to Disney, by trading ESPN (as Disney owns ESPN) sports anchor Al Michaels for Oswald. Yes, Disney traded a real live person for a cartoon, and Michaels now reports for NBC Sports. But Oswald has had quite the homecoming and is now the icon of Disney’s California Adventure and loved by many who visit the park.

this outfit is a stunner! i love everything about it! from hat to toe: perfection!
the past ten days i spent home sick – most of the time i wore a chunky sweater i just purchased from h&m’s winter sale. it has minnie mouse on it. since then days my man calls me minnie … hahaha 😉
Oooh, Janey dear, this outfit is so, so sweetly fabulous! I love the all American influences of the blue, red and white here. Topped off with a classic straw boater, it’s pure vintage daywear perfection in my books.
I am in LOVE with this outfit!!
Your suit is super stylish!
Oh. My. God! I’m basically seeing you as a female version of The Music Man, now, travelling from town to town doing a song and dance. But not, like, a con artist. Or maybe a con artist, I don’t know your life.
What I’m trying to say is, I really, really like your outfit, and it looks like you had a great time with your friends.
This outfit is everything and THEN SOME! That dress is just the perfect mix of simple (pattern) and stunning (detail & cut). Paired with the boater and those shoes you really had quite an exquisite ensemble!
Your outfit!!!! (❤ヮ❤) I need to sew myself a dress just like that suit, and yes, I want to steal the purse and hat to match!! I think I am now on a mission to recreate your outfit someday… I mean, it’s just tooo tooo perfect!
*so sorry, I hope you don’t mind the obsessive fan-girling over here* (=^ x ^=) ❤
