Dapper Day is an extraordinary event that turns Disney into the fanciest place on earth, as Disney goers dress up in their Sunday best. Although this is not a period style specific event, many guests deck out in vintage clothing- mostly from the 50’s. For the first time in forever my children and I stepped out in style with thousands of other Disnerds and enjoyed retro fun. Our theme was the 101 Dalmatians; do the polka dots give it away? I was going for a classy Cruella De Vil. Don’t we look dashing?! The Disney D brooch I am wearing is from retro queen, Kimi Babbitt. She was super sweet and made my group Dalmatian D’s for this event. Disney D’s can be made to match any theme or character. Kimi’s D’s add a touch of vintage class and retro sparkle to any outfit. Check out Kimi’s boutique: The Star Brite Motel on Etsy to preview just a handful of her creations. Follow Star Brite Motel on Instagram for updates on unique custom designs.
Upon arrival we were directed to park at Magic Kingdom as Epcot’s parking lot was closed and full to capacity. Despite the incredible crowds that were driven by this semi-annual event we strutted our stuff around the World Showcase with much exuberance. It was absolutely amazing to get lost in a crowd of fabulously dressed Disney Lovers. Everybody was giddy and happy. If for only a brief moment I felt as though my children and I time warped back in time. I can’t wait til Spring 2017! For more information visit the official Dapper Day website.
Thank you to all my fellow retro fashionista’s for spreading the Dapper joy! May you always be Dapper!
