Rock the Dots

2016-10-08_18-30-25

Today we honor  the most stylish, polka-dot-loving fashionista around…Minnie Mouse!  Minnie has been a fashion icon for decades and her dots are the inspiration behind the Rock the Dots movement that has impacted the fashion world over the past few years. I just adore polka dot patterns! Don’t you?  I have created the perfect Rock the Dots look for Disney Bounding around Mickey town.  This is an easy look to recreate and each piece can be found on Etsy.

2016-10-08_18-26-05My daughter is cute as a button in her Rock the Dots tee perfectly matched to a red with white polka dot skirt  and a fun and fluffy polka dot bow all inspired by the one and only;  Minnie Mouse.

The Rock the Dots tee is available from All Things Cute Decals for $23.99 and is available in women size xs-xl in a tank top or vneck tee.  My daughter is 5’0 and 91 lbs and is wearing an XS.

This circle skirt is custom made by the great Staysi Lee who has a knack at recreating the vintage look for today’s styles.  Flowy and free you will find this to be the perfect skirt for any body type.  Designed to match your personal measurements,  the Minnie inspired circle skirt will compliment every best part of you!  It features an elastic waist and bright white polka dots on a red base skirt.  Super comfy and a great way to make a statement while twirling your heart away in Disney World!

This red with white polka dots hair bow is absolutely adorable and the perfect alternative to a headband or nostalgic Minnie ears.  Designed by A Fancy Finish with comfort and functionality in mind; it easily attaches to a pigtail or a bun with an elastic band.  Hand sewn by Rachael Hixon and then stuffed to form the perfect Minnie bow shape.  It is 100% durable and will stay in place even after an extreme ride like Space Mountain or Expedition Everest.   If the band should ever break, undo the snap and replace with a new band.  Minnie inspired hair bows are now available in pretty pink with white polka dots, sequined for that sparkly touch, and Chewbacca fur for an out of this world look.  A Fancy Finish is the perfect finishing touch for any Minnie inspired outfit or costume.

I am wearing Minnie Ears by Beautiful Magik.  Read more about Beautiful Magik and her ears in my feature HERE.

Spinning around Walt Disney World with my daughter in matching outfits was the best part of my October!  It was immense fun and of course the best way to be spotted!  ((corny, I know!))

Journey into Imagination with Figment

figment-1

“Just one little spark of inspiration…that’s all it takes!  Imagination is how our minds think; to create creations.  With just that spark our dreams come true.”  (Sherman Brothers)

 

Dressing up to play at Disney is more than fun, it’s magical!    My children and I love to coordinate our outfits based on the park we are visiting for the day and what character or attraction’s we have a FastPass for.  One of our  favorite attractions at EPCOT just happens to be the classic- Journey into Imagination with Figment.  Inspired by this legendary character my daughter and I put together the perfect look for Disney bounding around EPCOT.

But wait!  What is Disney bounding?  Disney bounding is an alternative form of cosplay in which the individual’s love and appreciation for Disney is reflected through casual fashion.  From head to toe we honor the legendary character Figment; whom we all have grown to love.

dscn7509This fantastical hair bow is designed by Lucky Rabbit Creations an Etsy boutique that specializes in perfect little handmade bows and ears.  Inspired by Figment this bow displays orange horns and wings, and an F for his initial on purple and yellow fabric.  The fabric is durable and holds it’s form.  It can  withstand the great forces of speed and winds of the infamous Test Track.   This bow was designed with a French style clip that clasps close tightly and allows the wearer to attach it to any hairstyle with ease.  We love how it looks with a super high ponytail. It adds a touch of retro to the outfit.  At Lucky Rabbit Creations you will find bows and ears that will make your vacations more magical!   Desiree can customize any bow using a variety of styles from hand embroidery to hand beading.

The Figment circle skirt is designed by Paula of Sassy Skirts for Gals.  Sassy Skirts for Gals dscn7452can be found on Etsy and is Disney Nerd heaven.  You will be intrigued by an arrangement of fluffy circle skirts with a geeky twinge that will make you screech  for joy.  This skirt is made of a cotton fabric adorned with mini figments all over and finished with a purple grosgrain ribbon-(pre) tied in the perfect bow.  Sassy Skirts for Gals makes all circle skirts one size fits most with an adjustable elastic waist.  It is recommended to wear a tight fitting blouse that will easily tuck under for a more fashionable statement. Circle skirts are such a sweet way to add a little sass to your outfit!

unnamed-3Every girl knows an outfit is not complete without the perfect pair of shoes!  Jennifer from Beach Town Crafter on Etsy made these innovative Figment shoes that are bound to take you on the greatest journey through the Imagination Institute where your brain will be magically inspired.  Jennifer hand paints the design onto a comfortable KEDS like shoe using water safe paints.  This customized design has Figment fully detailed on the left shoe and the Imagination Institute logo on the right.  Hand painted on the side of the right shoe are the words, “one little spark,” acts as a simple reminder of how our wildest dreams come true.  The artistry of these shoes is impeccable  and the detail superb.  Check out Jenny’s other designs in her Etsy shop or message her with a custom design request.  She can customize anything!

Twirl your heart through EPCOT in this adorable outfit honoring Figment the adorable purple dragon.  My daughter received so many compliments from cast members and park guests and you will too!

Once Upon an Ear

fd8755385ef64b33b2e2fcae675b965bOnce upon a time, in a land far away there lived a beautiful princess with long brown hair and big brown eyes.  The princess lived in a beautiful and very enchanted castle with her mother,  the Queen and her brother, a brave knight. The castle was tucked deep in the Enchanted Forest and life was perfect.  This princess was like no other, she enjoyed archery and boots over a spot of tea and petticoats and never wore a crown.  No, this princess wore mouse ears upon her head instead.  Her collection was quite complete with a different pair of mouse ears to wear each day.  She had a plethora of ears covered in sparkles, bows, flowers, and lace.

 

One day the princess received word that she was to take a journey to a foreign land called Magic Kingdom, which was full of mysteries and spell bounding thrills.  Her quest was quite simple,  to triumph over the pleasantries of Magic Kingdom and she was to bring along with her the finest crown of her land and present it to the Sparkle Fairy in return for a reward.  The princess took on the quest in hopes that her kingdom would finally have a name.  She was quite excited and knew she would need to represent her kingdom well.  This was a chance of a lifetime and would finally land her family’s castle on the map.   The princess wanted to share the story of her enchanted castle with the Sparkle Fairy and got busy spinning away using only the finest of cloth materials, fillers, and decorative bits and pieces. In just a few days she conjured up an adorable pair of ears.  The headband provided a tight fit and was very durable given her the ability to wear them on her long journey and withstand her quest.  The ears were firm not flimsy and were covered in a soft, white fabric that sparkled in the sunlight.  In the center of the ears was a pink and a purple bow with a small teapot applique.  This applique represented one of her dearest friends, Mrs. Potts who has made the enchanted castle her home since the fall of the princesses father,  the King who was known throughout the land as the Beast.  Mrs. Potts was not only a friend, but also the princesses closest confidant and the queen’s hero.  She is also known as the best tea maker known in all realms of the world.

 

After  a long and thrilling journey through Magic Kingdom, the princess completed her quest.  Although not a crown, the Sparkle Fairy was intrigued with the spellbinding ears.  The sparkle fairy granted the princesses wish and named the kingdom, “Once Upon an Ear,” the land of fanciful ears.

Since that day, Once Upon an Ear has been making fantastical Minnie ears that can be customized to meet your fancy.  Customized ears can take up to 7 days to make, so order early.  Ready to ship ears are available on storenvy and most ears found on Instagram can be remade.
