For future reference, Dapper Day at Disneyland is the fashion event of the season. Even though I had mentally been preparing myself for Disney’s most fashionable day for months, I honestly stepped into California Adventure feeling like an underachiever. First of all, there was supposed to be a Roger to go with my Jessica but Roger got called to work. What do ya do? And even though I walked past the Dapper Convention at the California Grand Hotel, I didn’t have a chance to stop and check out all the vintage awesomeness. It was also one of my best friends birthday and naturally I was running fashionably late to our lunch date.
In case you live outside of So Cal and don’t have the luxury of being able to visit Disneyland on a weekly basis, let me enlighten you on what Dapper Day is. Pretty much it’s an excuse to justify wearing heels to Disneyland and dust off your favorite vintage pieces. Plus, I gladly accepted the challenge to coordinate my outfit in the spirit of a Disney character.
The girls in our group were complaining they were hot but I reminded them we were the last ones to be complaining. My fashion props for sure went to the guys walking around in triple digit heat wearing full on suits, dress shirts and basically layers upon layers. I wish I would have gotten more pics of all the adorableness that was walking around the park but alas there just wasn’t enough time in the day. Plus, the day again was for my friend. She got to call the shots since she was the birthday girl. So even though, I didn’t get a chance to visit the convention or even Disneyland for that matter. I did have a chance to be Dapper on Dapper Day, and for me that’s enough. Next Spring though, it’s on!
