Minnie Mouse x LeSportsac Review

Once the last collection of LeSportsac and Disney’s  It’s A Small World collaboration debuted last year, I was hoping they’d be teaming up for more collections featuring other characters or attractions from the wonderful world of Disney — the Haunted Mansion (Dooney & Bourke did that already though, but I don’t see why they couldn’t do it too), dogs and cats of Disney (OMG, can you just picture a pattern with Lady & the Tramp and 101 Dalmatians and the Aristocats and every other awesome dog and cat character all over it?!), Disney Princesses (Snow White bags with sparkly apple charms PLEASE!), Mary Poppins (I will pass out of excitement if that ever happens), etc. So when they announced a line of Minnie Mouse bags and accessories last Fall, I was more than happy! And they’ve also gone on with a Tinkerbell collection featuring art by Disney Legend Marc Davis, and most recently just released a Monsters Inc. line with Pixar production designer Harley Jessup’s artwork. Hooray!

While I was down in SoCal for RunDisney’s 5k Family Fun Run, I got to go to the Happiest Place on Earth! I packed a little outfit inspired by Minnie which wouldn’t have been complete without LeSportsac’s  Ziptop Rollup tote! The tote is perfect for a day of park hopping at the Disneyland Resort because it’s roomy enough for all the essentials: wallet, water bottle, little snacks, and compact bag full of even more essentials (chapstick, bandaids, Aleve, lipstick, tiny spray on sunblock, etc), my bulky camera, and my Mary Poppins Funko Pop! toy with room to spare. I love using this tote for everyday use as well, and sometimes it’s perfect to take as an extra bag while shopping because it can easily be rolled up and it’s super lightweight.

The print truly captures Minnie Mouse’s essence with the bold polkadots which mirror the ones on her iconic dress and bow. Plus each dot features Minnie’s fashions throughout her 90+ years in showbiz, clearly showing off just how much of a fashion icon she truly is.

LeSportsac was kind enough to send along a little Kasey bag for me to giveaway to one of my readers as well, so be sure to look out for a giveaway post tomorrow to find out how you can win it!

Cheers,
Nina

Autumn Attire

I started this blog with the intention of documenting my cute ensembles, but it gets awfully tiring taking pictures of yourself! It also doesn’t help when you gain weight and all your cute clothes don’t fit the way they used to. *Wah wah wah* I’m working on that though! And I’ve been getting back into the swing of things clothes-wise too. I came up with this outfit for the Grizzly Bear show I attended on Tuesday.

Outfit details:

A few people complimented my outfit and told me my color palette was very fall-like. It wasn’t my intention when I threw it together, but I suppose the sudden change in weather inspired me. I thought I looked a bit more like a walking thrift store as some of my pieces remind of things that could be found in one — my bird shirt from H&M (I found it in the dude section!) looks like a page from a vintage encyclopedia, the pattern of my skirt has a retro vibe going on, and my jewelry from Grouse and Badger are made from upcycled bits like typewriters, watches, and old keys. I also found my Steve Madden boots at the American Cancer Society’s secondhand store. I’m not sure how old the Louis Vuitton bag is, but my mom has had it since I was kiddie (I think)!

My reed bracelet (pictured below, which I hijacked from my boyfriend) is from an organization called Invisible Children. They’re handmade in Uganda and 100% of the proceeds support “civilian protection and the rehabilitation of children abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army” in Africa. You can read more about their mission statement here. The bracelets come in different colors and each one represents a different child, and they also come with a DVD to see the kids’ story! I have yet to watch a DVD… perhaps I should ask my boyfriend if I can borrow one, as he basically bought a bracelet in every color.  🙂
