On Sunday Patrick and I went to Disneyland to spend an evening with some friends of ours visiting from out of town. Still beat from our trek around LA, I wanted to be a bit comfy, and went one of my many squaw dresses, which can do me no wrong. Like quite a few items I own, I wish I had one in every color.
We shot these over at a rather overlooked area of the park, the Big Thunder Ranch Petting Farm. The area has goats, sheep, donkeys, horses and cows for guests to interact with. In fact Disneyland Resort just welcomed two baby goats to the fold, and those who follow the Disney Parks Blog could vote on their names! All animals at the Resort are named after Disney characters, and over 4,000 people (including yours truly) cast their votes, with the winning names being Bernard and Bianca, after the heroic mice of the two Rescuers films. Which were the names I voted for! The area is also home to one of my favorite Hidden Mickeys, one that can be found in the giant pile of horseshoes! Look for it next time you visit Disneyland!
EDIT: In light of comments on this post, I decided to tackle the term “Squaw” in relation to this style of dress with its very own blog post. Join in the conversation, share your thoughts and opinions!
