Yo Ho! A Dapper Life For Me!
Spring has sprung and with it brings Dapper Day, the twice yearly event at Disneyland that encourages visitors to “step out in style” and shop the Dapper Day Expo, which is filled with vintage and vintage inspired goodies, as well as amazing artists. Friday night we helped our friends at Match Accessories set up for the Expo, and I spied this super cute pirate girl brooch, which helped me in finally decided what to wear, because I had no idea! So I went with a pirate inspired ensemble, pulling together elements from Pirates of the Caribbean and The Rescuers.
Also, yes, I know I just wore this crown, but I’m obsessed and this isn’t the last time you’ll see it this month. I mean, it is my birthday month so I figured why not wear a crown all month? But honestly, I also think we should just wear crowns more casually.
The overcast morning finally gave way to a relatively sunny day, which was spent noshing on gumbo and beignets and exploring Tom Sawyer’s Island. Later we visited with friends who were staying at the Disneyland Hotel and took a dip in the pool before helping Match Accessories break down their booth from the Expo. If you’re looking for quality vintage and Disney inspired jewelry, it’s really Match or nothing.
I got so many compliments on my purse, and was asked if The Rescuers was my favorite Disney movie, which, well, it’s not. So why have a Rescuers purse? Look, I really love Bob Newhart, and it’s rather hard to find wearable Bob Newhart items. It’s kind of why I have Planet of the Apes stuff, sure I love that movie, but I really freakin’ love Roddy McDowall.
