Yoo-Hoo, Minnie!

My love for Disney only intensifies as I get older and I always try to find ways to sneak elements of it into my everyday life, whether it be through household items (my Disney mug collection is getting out of control), beddings (stuffed animals count as pillows, right?), clothes, or accessories. What can I say? I’m a Disnerd for life!

LeSportsac released another line of Minnie Mouse bags and accessories last fall called “Minnie’s Floral Park.” I’m absolutely bonkers for anything with a floral print, so I’m utterly head over heels for this specific collection! LeSportsac makes their purses out of heavy duty, lightweight nylon, which is perfect because who likes throwing a bulky purse over their shoulder that’s already heavy without putting anything in it beforehand? Not this girl. This is why I love using LeSportsac bags for everyday use, and they’re particularly great for a long day at Disneyland!

I put together a Minnie Mouse “Disneybound” with the LeSportsac Minnie bag and my navy blue and beige polkadot dress, hot pink belt, and hot pink Blowfish flats. Usually when I see people Disneybound any character, I notice that they’re faithful to the original color palette that’s associated with the designated character whose style they’re trying to convey. I try to do the same, but other times I like to breakout and just draw inspiration with little details. For example, my friend Brianna made this cute little daisy ring for me (pictured below) and I thought it fit the vibe of my Minnie inspired outfit since she was originally drawn with a hat that had a daisy on top of it. I’m super anal-retentive when it comes to details. Some of you may have noticed from past outfit posts. Hehe. 🙂


Are you a Disnerd for life too? Do you Disneybound? Let’s geek out about it in the comments section!

Sweater Puppies

A few years ago, I came across this Lady & the Tramp pullover from H&M while browsing #ladyandthetramp on Instagram. There were soooo many selfies of ladies wearing it and exclaiming how much they loved it, and I was stabbed multiple times with sharp pangs of jealousy.

I HAD TO HAVE IT.

Lady & the Tramp has always been one of my favorite Disney movies, and my obsession with novelty pullovers was (and still is) very strong. I dropped many unsubtle hints to my boyfriend at the time that I wanted it for Christmas. He was unable to find it, so I called thirteen (yes, thirteen) different H&M locations that were within forty-five minutes to an hour and a half away from me, but had no luck! I talked a little bit about how horribly I wanted it on this blog post from a couple years back. The desperation was no joke.

I figured all hope was lost and it would never be mine, so I just gave up on it. I mean, it’s just a pullover, right? Or “jumper,” if you live somewhere that has better slang than America. Later that year I randomly decided to look it up on eBay and there it was! And in my size!!! It was almost fate —  the only problem was that the seller was based in the UK and her listing for it said “No international orders.” I messaged her anyway, telling her my sob story about how I’ve searched high and low for it and if she would please let me bid on it. Obviously, she was an angel because here I am wearing it in these outfit photos. 😀

As much as I love it, I can’t help but feel slightly weird about how mighty my need for it was. I stalked the auction for it like someone stalks the Facebook profile (or Tumblr or Instagram) of someone they have a crush on. When it finally got down to the last few minutes of the auction, my body was literally shaking. Shaking. Who the fresh hell shakes with anticipation over a damn piece of clothing? Apparently, I do. But… LOOK AT HOW PERFECT IT IS!

Have any of you ever gone completely insane for a materialistic item, or stalked an eBay auction like a lion hunts its prey? Lemme know in the comments!

cheers
