This past weekend was another lovely Dapper Day celebration at Disneyland! For 2016 the Dapper Day committee is trying some new dates for their events. Instead of February and September like last year, this year Dapper Day lands in May and November. I’m not sure of the official reason for the date changes, but I am hoping the change brings better weather for the events. February last year was a very rainy day, and September was way too hot. So far, so good, because we had perfect weather this past weekend! Usually I’m taking a lot of breaks in the shade and reapplying my makeup every five seconds. Dapper Day Spring 2016 was a major success!
I had so much fun walking around with my friends and seeing everyone’s beautiful outfits. This was my favorite group of the day – Star Wars: The Force Awakens Dapper ‘Bounding!
We also had a Disneyland Brides and Grooms lunch meetup, and it’s always great to chat with old friends and meet new ones.
I have to give a shout out to Ena’s Bazaar, who custom made this wonderful Disney Princesses skirt for me! I got so many compliments on it, and since it was custom made to my waist, it was SUPER comfortable all day. AND it also came with a matching pillow bow for my hair!
I paired the skirt with a black top I already owned, a blingy crystal necklace and bracelet from Vivi Jewelry, and white sandals. The fact that my recently dyed purple hair matched the skirt was a happy coincidence! Of course I’m also wearing my FitBit … can’t let all those steps you take at Disneyland go to waste!
I admit this was probably my most “comfortable” Dapper Day yet! Thank you, Ena’s Bazaar! Keep reading because I’m partnering with Ena’s Bazaar to give away a skirt in this same fabric to one lucky reader! Details are a the bottom of this article.
The Dapper Day Expo was at The Disneyland Hotel again this year. There were lots of fun vendors and photo ops, as well as a stage and dance floor. After 12 noon there was a bar selling adult beverages. With the shopping, photo ops, and dancing, it’s very easy to spend a couple hours at the expo, so plan ahead! I like to get there right when it opens for maximum shopping time. This year I was very good to my wallet and only bought a few small items (verses the TWO Pinup Girl Clothing dresses I bought last year):
– Sunglasses and belt (missed the vendor name and I can’t find a list of expo exhibitors online!)
– Earrings by FemmeDeBloom
– Sequin Mickey hair clips by Meteor Jewelry Company
– Lip Glaze in Cherry from Besame Cosmetics (I actually won this by answering their Instagram trivia!)
– Palace Print Dapper Day tote bag available on the Dapper Day website
Speaking of Pinup Girl Clothing, for this expo they sponsored a shuttle that ran between the expo at The Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. This saved us a lot of precious time walking around in heels! It was a wonderful idea – thank you, Pinup Girl Clothing!!
