Dapper Day at Disneyland Spring 2013

Dapper Day Cover 2Dapper Day at Disney parks brings people together to celebrate the tradition of “stepping out in style” and is a day to visit one of the parks dressed in elegant clothing from vintage -inspired to contemporary fashions.  Created in Spring of 2011, Dapper Day was inspired by original Disney park illustrations which often featured well dressed guests.  It is currently celebrated at The Disney Resorts in LA, Orlando, and Paris.  This was my 1st Dapper Day and I decided to do a vlog to share the experience with everyone, so please watch my fun video at the end of this post!

I was really excited to wear on of my new dresses from Pin Up Girl Clothing.  This is the “Ginger” dress in vintage circus print.  The rhinestone sweater and polka dot tights are from Forever 21 and my platform mary jane doll shoes are by Demonia.

Dapper Day Spring 2013 16So King Arthur’s Carousel in Fantasy Land turned out to be the meeting place where all Dapper folk ended up after dusk.  The huge line wrapped around and around like a cinnamon roll just to get on with all of our fellow Dappers!  But it was so fun seeing everyone’s outfits and mingling with them!

    You’re so ravishing Lili and that old classic car suits you! Everyone looked so nice and seemed to have a great time at the Carousel! That one elegant lady in her ’20s outfit is lovely. I watched the video twice cuz it’s fun to see all of the Dappers in one place! You and Robert look sweet and so do your friends. Love your rings and love Charis’ hat!
