A couple of weeks ago, the kiddo and I were lucky enough to attend our first Dapper Day at Disneyland!
Dapper Day is something I’ve always wanted to attend, but just never had the opportunity to do so.
A little background on Dapper Day. Two times a year at Disneyland, WDW and Disneyland Paris, Disney hosts a Dapper Day event. This event has an Expo, where you can purchase dresses, shoes, gloves, sunglasses, hats, bowling shirts, parasols, etc. and then it is off to the parks to enjoy your day in your dapper finery. Visit their website here for more information.
Here are some wonderful pictures from our Dapper Day. If you got a chance to attend, what were your thoughts? Please comment and let us know. We love to hear from you!
We decided this is the first of many Dapper Days to come for us. We were super inspired. As a matter of fact, we are going to focus on more dapper inspired mash-ups with our cosplay and bounding for everyday in the coming year on our blog. So stay tuned for that!
Today’s outfit of the day isn’t so much an outfit as a “look”. The kiddo and I recently became obsessed with “Riverdale”. It is the best described as “Twin Peaks” meets “90210”. The crazy has been turned up to 11 on this show in the best possible way.
More than the crazy plot twists, however, are the fashions! The fashions on this show are amazing! I have become obsessed with Veronica’s wardrobe.

I recently purchased the Veronica Lodge cape from Hot Topic. The cape or cloak is fully lined with Veronica’s name and includes a hood. The cloak comes in both juniors and plus sizes.
To get that Veronica look, take a swing dress in a darker color and pair it with a skinny belt. Pair it with some kitten heels and a vintage bag. Accessorize with pearls.
Complete the look with the cloak, and you have instant glam worthy of any Riverdale Vixen!
For our latest outfit of the day, we have the Ghostbusters Jacket from Spirit Halloween.
Yep, you heard that right! I picked this sweet jacket up from a Halloween store. Halloween stores aren’t just for decorating your house anymore (Ha!)
The jacket is a men’s jacket, but fits me really well. I got the XL. I’m a women’s size 18/20 for reference.
The jacket comes with name tags for all four men Ghostbusters, so you can change them with your mood. They attach with some pretty sturdy velcro, so they stay put really well. I went with Egon, because, of course!
I added in a pair of Holzmann glasses and gloves to complete the look. Good way to “cross the streams” between the men and women ‘Busters (see what I did there *wink*).
