Minnie Style

I consider Minnie Mouse a style icon.  If she had a style blog, I would follow it.  She is always properly dressed for whatever occasion is drawn out for her. Her pairing of bright colors and bold prints is so cute and smart.  We've met several times in person and her wardrobe is a definite representation of her darling personality. 


This red/white polka dot dress was an e-bay purchase quite a few months ago.  It hung in my closet, unworn, waiting for the purchase of those great, yellow pumps.  The outfit overall doesn't scream MINNIE MOUSE to me...I didn't want it to look like I was wearing a costume...but more like a little coincidence.


Now that this dress has been styled the way I originally intended, I feel like I can branch out to other colors and accessories.  This dress has amazing re-mixing potential.

OH you look SO cute!!!

Love it, I really like the yellow pumps with it especially. So great!

I see Minnie Mouse in person quite a lot! We have annual passes to Disney and ever since Mickey tickled my three-year-old on her 2nd birthday, we have to go see them every time. :)

That is a really great dress. I see the Minnie inspiration but, it's not over the top. You look really cute :)

Jo: I don't recall which ebay seller. And it was so long ago, it's no longer showing up in my purchase history - crazy! Sorry...

Your legs look incredible in those shoes! And I'm having a bit of bike envy over your new wheels. If only I rode my bike more, maybe I could justify a purchase like this. Must get on that...
