Sartorial Saturday–Thank the Phoenicians

“Remember how easy it was to learn your ABC’s? Thank the Phoenicians, they invented them.”

Spaceship Earth

This isn’t the first time I’ve shared a fashion based on EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth, but it is the first time since riding it last summer!

Shortly after we got home from our trip, I ran across a kickstarter for a Spaceship Earth-inspired crossbody bag, created by the designer behind Charmed & Cozy. I immediately fell in love, and I was thrilled when the goal was met, and equally happy when it arrived in a very timely fashion! Aren’t the colors pretty?!?

Of course I had to style it with my Spaceship Earth dress!

I went with blue accessories this time, starting with a Yemak cropped cardigan and including a stack of Splendette duchess bangles, my Meteor Jewelry Starlite necklace, and an Erstwilder brooch perfect for the theme…it’s all very mid-century marvelous, don’t you think?

I added my sparkly silver shoes and a sparkly silver belt to complete the look:

I don’t usually wear my crossbody bags across my body (I’m weird that way), but I’m very happy that the strap on this one is long enough that I can if I want to!

It’s a good size bag, too…I can definitely fit all my essentials plus a few extras!

I’m loving that I’ve embraced Disney-inspired fashion!

Sartorial Saturday–Spaceship Earth

I’ve never really considered myself to be a Disney person. But when I saw this dress by Disney, inspired by what might be the most famous geodesic dome, Spaceship Earth, I feel in love. Luckily for me, Ryan happened to notice, and bought me this beautiful dress for my birthday last month!

The print and simple colors of grey and white really appealed to me. And while the skirt isn’t as full as lot of the skirts I wear, it does have a nice flare:

I especially love the accessorizing options, because this dress goes with everything! Here I’m wearing purple and silver (with just a splash of blue on my brooch), but I’m looking forward to pairing it with yellow, pink, and darker shades of grey (and probably other colors, too!).

Did I mention that St. Louis is also home to a fairly notable geodesic dome at the Missouri Botanical Garden? I think this dress will also be a great option for the next time we visit the Climatron!
