The thought of Disneyland makes my heart go pitter-pat. I love it. And I love any opportunity to go to it. As an annual passholder and Southern California resident, I get to do it a lot, which pleases me to no end. It doesn’t have to be about the rides. Just strolling around, people-watching, and doing dinner is often enough. And if I get to do it with friends, even better. Last Saturday was Dapper Day at Disneyland and while walking around Disney in vintage isn’t new to me, it is a treat for some of my non-vintage friends. Actually you don’t need to wear vintage to go to Dapper Day. You just need to dress spiffy, which for many just happens to be vintage. And if I, as well as the others who went, can go out looking presentable and encourage all of those people who went out in public in pants half way down their butts, with bra straps showing and shorts cut to there, then I see myself as doing a service to everyone who is tired of sad-looking clothes. Vintage may be a passing fad for many who went – an opportunity to do what everyone else happened to be doing that day, a way to be noticed, but I don’t mind. I was there to be with my friends and we had a grand time.
While I’m normally a 30s gal, I decided to channel a 1950s Pendleton ad, in honor of Disneyland, which was built in 1955. My red plaid jacket, belted, with a grey skirt and lovely low-heeled red wedges were perfect for walking around.
