When you Wish Upon a Wire

When you wish upon a wire
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you

Have you ever wished upon a star with all your might only for your dreams to come true?  How about wishing upon a wire?  As mystical as it may seem,  magical things are conjured when you Wish Upon a Wire.   Anything your heart desires: Dole Whips, Mickey balloons, or Cinderella’s Castle- that’s right your dreams of the perfect Minnie ears have finally come true!  Jen is the fantastical wizard behind the wire Minnie ears.  She intricately designs and creates customized wire Minnie ears even the Blue Fairy fawns over.

There is nothing this gal cannot do!  Even I tried to challenge Jen, but she is a true master of the art and the end result of my customized ears ruffled some feathers. Before I reveal the whimsical ears that were designed for me; I’d like to share the ordering process.

To start Jen asked me what theme I wanted.  There was no doubt in my mind, I needed Dole Whip ears!  So, I requested something with a Dole Whip on one side and anything magical on the other.  I was very vague,  simply because it was too hard to decide.  I just love everything Jen creates.  I feel like I need one of everything!  It all started with an idea that turned into a sketch and finished with a little touch of pixie dust!   Throughout the design process Jen would send me magic mail to my gmail inbox teasing my ever wishing heart with sneakie peeks.

The whole process was spellbounding.  I felt connected to Jen and the fabrication of my ears.  Ordering from Wish Upon a Wire is truly a unique experience I hope to endure again, and again in the future.  Everything right down to the delivery of the finished product is simply MAHVELOUS!  I was thrilled to receive my ears in tact and in perfect shape after shipping.  Jen packaged the ears in bubble wrap and tissue paper which protected the shape of the ears.  Wire ears are incredibly delicate making it it very easy for the ears to bend;  so packaging is extremely important!

Jen’s design intermixed my love for Adventure, Dole Whips, and the Enchanted Tiki Room.  I just couldn’t wait to take my ears on their first adventure…and when I did cast members and park guests couldn’t help but ask where I got my ears from.  Wish Upon a Wire’s work is literally breathtaking.  I had one park guest chase me down Main Street USA to inquire the craftsmanship of the ears and she could hardly catch her breath.  The brightly colored flowers caught her eye, but when she saw the delicate wire work of Pierre and Collette she was amazed.

And you can be too!  I have so many beautiful words for Jen and her wire talent.  She is just the sweetest and her ears will bring so much added magic to your Disney Day.  Check out Wish Upon a Wire on Instagram.  Don’t forget to give this shop a follow to stay updated on new designs and the official store opening!

Looking Chic on the Savanna

 

According to Vogue magazine, animal print is a powerful fashion trend this winter. Leopard, Cheetah, Zebra, Tiger, Spotted Hyena, Striped Hyena, African Wild Dog, Giraffe, and Monkey are fashion’s greatest inspiration this season.  As a Disney fanatic I couldn’t possibly think of any better way to show off the hottest fashion trend but with a magical pair of Animal Print Minnie Ears!!!

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!))
