Fall 2016 Dapper Day Expo Fun!

Hello friends! This post is coming a little later than I had planned; however, I couldn't pass up the chance to share a little bit about my experience at the Dapper Day Expo at the Disneyland Hotel on November 5th and 6th! If you aren't familiar with the expo or Dapper Day, be sure to check out the website here and follow the Dapper Day Expo Instagram here.


Day 1

Day 1 of the expo was kind of a whirlwind for me because there were so many people to say hello to and I did not sleep well the night before (thanks to my excited nerves + staying up late for last minute prep!); however, seeing so many lovely faces and having my best friend Jade and my fiancee Paul with me made it an amazing day! 

My outfit for Day 1 was Haunted Mansion themed, thanks to this amazing skirt from Sassy Skirts for Gals on Etsy. I absolutely ADORE this skirt. I paired it with the Mickey Haunted Mansion wallpaper print brooch from my shop and a pinup girl clothing belt. Links below on where to purchase!


Close up of my outfit!

Day 2

For Day 2, I was ready to go after a good night's sleep and lots of pizza for dinner the night before =P 

My outfit for Day 2 was Wonderland themed thanks to this gorgeous skirt from Unique Vintage! Can we also talk about how perfect the blue wall is for pictures? I'm obsessed!

Here is also a picture of my accessories for the day from my shop. Dainty mushroom earrings, the "Alice Imagination" Brooch, and the necklace from the Queen of Hearts set


I am loving this picture with the adorable Faheema, who is the genius behind the online shop Unicorn Crafts! Her booth was just ABSOLUTE PERFECTION and a complete inspiration! Follow her on Instagram for updates on her adorable accessories!


Had to take a moment to snap a photo with these cute little munchkins with their Cars inspired disney bounds! I was able to make earrings and a pin for them! Follow their mama @gorgeousli for more cuteness!

I absolutely had to take pictures BOTH days with the absolute STUNNING @van_kelsing. Kelsey's outfits on both days were just so amazing. I was obsessed! 

Last but not least, I'm loving this picture of some of my fellow "Princess Squad" members!
