I thought it would be fun to build a Halloween look around a dirndl, so I decided to use my purple dirndl to create an Evil Queen costume!
I left off the apron since I don’t have a solid purple one to match the dress. I added a red ribbon lacing to echo the red belt on the Evil Queen’s dress. I also wore a black cape, which I secured with (what else) a mirror brooch from Erstwilder. And the Evil Queen wouldn’t be complete without a poison apple…luckily, we just happen to have a Lego poison apple in the school room!
I thought this was a really fun way to style a dirndl! Next year, maybe I’ll use this dirndl to dress as Jack, the Czar of Halloween!
I’ve already shared one whimsical styling of the Miss Candyfloss Honesta-May dress…now it’s time for another! Today I’m taking a look at a Disney Bound inspired by Daisy Duck’s “Disney 100” outfit, and I’m including the Disney 100 ears I bought for our trip to Disneyland!
Her outfit is purple and silver…I went with purple and white (with a hint of silver here and there):
I guess my invitation was lost in the mail (ha, ha, ha), but that didn’t stop me from planning a very special outfit for the occasion…I even added my wedding tiara to complete the look that features the Miss Candyfloss Sacnite-Lee dressing gown I picked up last spring with the Platinum Jubilee in mind:
The tiara is the main accessory, but I also added my favorite pearls (of course!), crown earrings from Erstwilder, a pair of glittery Duchess bangles from Splendette, and the Royal Collection replica brooch I always pull out for events featuring the British monarchy:
My daughters also think that this would be the perfect Disney Bound of Queen Elsa, and they’re not wrong!
I also added my most sparkly shoes, for a regal look from head to toe!
I love that if I try hard enough (and am creative enough), I can pull together an outfit for any occasion from what I already have in my closet!
Star Wars Day is almost here, and I have the perfect Disney Bound for it…an entire look dedicated to my favorite (Disney) princess, Princess Leia!
I fell in love with the Miss Candyfloss Honesta-May dress the first time I saw it in the lookbook. The eyelet embroidery is gorgeous, and I love the idea of a white cotton dress for summer (even though I am afraid I’ll spill on it!). And then I started thinking about different ways I could wear it, and it occurred to me that it would make a great foundation for a Princess Leia-inspired look:
I have a few very special accessories to complete the outfit…my Loungefly Princess Leia bag, my Rocklove Jewelry Kyber Crystal necklace, and my lightsaber from our trip to Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios last summer:
I added some silver hoop earrings and glittery Splendette Duchess bangles, plus a few sparkly hair clips:
I added a silver belt to the dress, too:
I think I captured the spirt of Princess Leia’s look in A New Hope‘s medal scene without wearing a costume!
I’m looking forward to sharing a few other looks (including another whimsical one!) featuring this dress soon!
Are you familiar with “Disney Bounding,” a way to dress up like your favorite Disney characters without wearing an actual costume? There’s even a Disney Bound challenge coming up in March, starting with Bounding as your favorite Disney character on the first. I’ve never attempted a Disney Bound before, but I realized my purple vacation blouse from Vixen by Micheline Pitt is perfect for Daisy Duck’s style, and an idea was born!
I paired the top with a skirt I picked up on clearance at Old Navy for only $5 (worn over a pair of bike shorts I already owned, because the skirt is pretty sheer), and pink Crocs sandals.
I accessorized with a mini backpack from the Loungefly Princess Sequin line. The bag represents Rapunzel, but it also happens to be in Daisy’s colors of pink and purple, and even has a bow!
Further accessories include Minnie ears that feature a pink bow à la Daisy Duck and a blue glitter Splendette duchess bangle just like Daisy wears!
I think I captured the essence of my favorite Disney Duck pretty well!
