Last year, at Tiki Day, I met a woman through our mutual love of Carmen Miranda, as she was wearing a Carmen Miranda inspired fruit hat, but with Mickey ears attached. I freaked out, and we soon sat down together and chatted the night away at Trader Sam’s. She told me of a meet-up that was happening soon, and basically explained it as a get-together of people who liked dressing vintage and hanging out at Disneyland, and that hopefully it would turn into a monthly thing, a mini Dapper Day of sorts. And one year later, she and I are still friends, the group, simply titled Vintage Visitors, boasts over 900 members, and there are indeed monthly meet-ups, all with themes. I’ve written about a few of them over the last year, the few I was able to attend that is, as work often prevented me from attending, but, now that I have left, I can attend them all! Well, if nothing bigger comes along on the same day that is.
While the first event was holiday themed, this year, as it is still technically fall, we went with a autumn theme, and everyone showed up in beautiful hues of caramel, mustard and crimson. The highlight of the day though was when Dale offered to dance with me. I was so ecstatic! Seriously, it’s not every day you get to dance with a chipmunk in a Christmas hat and sweater!
In the meantime I have hauled out our Christmas boxes, yeah, I decorate early, and begun decorating our place, and I look forward to sharing my decorations with you all in the near future.
