I just finished my last WDW trip report, so of course it’s time to go back to Walt Disney World. I KNOW, RIGHT?! I’ve never been to Disney this much in this short a time! And I may never again, so I better enjoy it.
One of the ways I enjoy it is by dressing up. Thus it is time once again for my planned trip wardrobe. But this time, there’s a TWIST! What kind of twist, you ask? Read on!
(Don’t mind the knee scabs; I had another running tumble. We’ll talk about it next post. Whee!)
We begin with my current planned Day 1 outfit, which I vetted on my Instagram and went over well with the voting public. I know, I know, it’s kind of a lot, but who doesn’t love a good tutu moment?
The skirt is by ASOS, and the Remy + Spaceship Earth shirt is from Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend many years ago. Technically it was for the 10K and I was only doing the half, but it was so cute I bought it anyway. I’ve gathered it in the back with a hair tie and tucked it under the give the shirt a more fitted look, and I actually think it looks pretty cute! I’ll pin it up with a safety pin on the day so it’s not quite so lumpy.
For Day 2, I’m showing off my new Gideon’s Bakehouse t-shirt, featuring a caricature of beloved Imagineer Joe Rohde! While this was a January limited edition, you can actually still order the shirt online if you’re okay with a 3XL. I tried the shirt on with a ton of different bottoms, but ultimately went with this old skirt from Target. It gives good swoosh.
Day 3 will be after the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. I’ve got an early afternoon date with Oga’s Cantina and I know exactly what to wear for it.
I’ve seen a gazillion people on Insta wearing those gorgeous Selkie dresses, and I’m not gonna lie: I kinda want one. But there’s something about its silhouette that just feels off to me. I don’t want to say “dated” because it implies that you can only wear things when they’re quote-unquote “in,” but I just don’t see getting a lot of mileage out of it personally.
This starry dress with its puff sleeves smacks of existing within the same family, in a more timeless shape. Although it’s also kinda shapeless; the back straps are supposed to tie in a bow behind you, but I’ve pulled them around to the front and tied an empire waist for a little more definition. I’m toying with no-sew ways I can potentially bring the waist in even more. But it goes perfectly with my anniversary Minnie Ears just as it is.
You can still get this dress from NastyGal in plus sizes, or straight sizes in a full-length version. If your size isn’t available, check again later – they often bring stuff back. Oh, and size down; if you can believe it, I’m wearing a size 2, and it’s still voluminous.
Finally (ish – we’re getting there), I have my Coco shirt and short set. I’ve worn this one before, and I’m sure I don’t have to explain to you how freakin’ retro adorable it is. Originally from my fount of all things IP clothing, Hot Topic. Alas, it doesn’t seem to be available anymore.
But wait, there’s more! Having already committed to the above outfits, it suddenly occurred to me that my Mary Blair-patterned Alice in the Garden of Live Flowers shirt and skirt set would be an absolute slam dunk for the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. And it got me thinking… should I swap it in for one of the above?
I can’t decide – but YOU can. Head on over to my Instagram @fairestrunofall RIGHT NOW and check out my Stories. There are 4 polls, pitting the Alice outfit against all of my original sartorial selections. If Alice upends any of its competition, it earns a place in my suitcase! If it wins over more than 1, it replaces whatever had the lowest percentage of votes.
Please vote, because I don’t want to have to figure this out myself. 😅 You have 24 hours to vote. May the best dressed win!
Don’t forget, you can follow FRoA on Twitter @fairestrunofall and on Instagram @fairestrunofall. If you have any questions or thoughts, leave a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See ya real soon!
