Back in simpler(?) times, before the mass cancellation of runDisney race weekends, I elected to cheer myself up with a new dress from the Disney Dress Shop. Disney was offering 30% off all orders for Annual Passholders and it seemed the time to strike.
So I indulged myself in the purchase of a super-cute yellow dress featuring the flamingo from Fantasia 2000. As has been previously documented, I absolutely adore Fantasia 2000, and the flamingo’s tale that goes with Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals finale ranks among the top 2 segments out that exemplary anthology. Should we just watch it real quick? Let’s just watch it real quick:
Right? Right! I never would’ve guessed Disney would see fit to make that little guy a dress but they sure had my number when they did it.
It’s a great dress, too! While I love The Dress Shop, some of their designs can err on the side of frumpy; indeed, the skirt on this one is a bit long. Can’t a girl show a little knee anymore? But the colors are fun, the print is cute, and the cut is flattering. I’m into it!
I wore it out for the first time to dinner a couple days ago. The waitress accidentally spilled Coke on it which was just as well because then, when I inadvertently dumped ketchup and mustard in my lap, I already had club soda and napkins available. And if that ain’t 2020, I don’t know what is. 😭🤣
