I’m still 5…

Sometimes I don’t have enough time to put an outfit together, so this is what I ended up wearing to work this morning. Later on I realized that this is something my 5-year-old self would’ve probably worn. I can’t say Minnie Mouse has always been my favorite. Daisy Duck was my homegirl when I was a wee lass. I had a blanket with baby Daisy on it and it was one of my most favorite things in the whole wide world. But every time I went to Disneyland, Daisy was never there and there wasn’t a whole lot of merchandise with her mug on it. Everything was Minnie, Minnie, Minnie. I had a Minnie purse, fanny-pack, t-shirts, dresses, etc. No Daisy! Not even a plush doll. 😦

*sigh*

I learned to love Minnie Mouse though, and went crazy when Forever 21 launched their Minnie Muse line last fall.

The coolest pair of Chucks I ever owned were a pair of purple ones with dinosaurs on them. I think I had those when I was in preschool. The ones pictured above would be the second pair of coolest Chucks I have ever owned. My mom got them for me last year at Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale! They’re slip-ons with a pop-art/comic book feel — the shoe laces and stitches are painted on.

I found this ring at a garage sale last week. It kind of reminded me of the cheap-o rings I would get at Sanrio, or as I still like to call it “The Hello Kitty Store,” when I was little. It’s fun because I can shift all the gems whichever way I please. Also, they kinda remind me of the fireworks at Disneyland. 😀

I remember watching an episode of What Not To Wear a few years ago, and Clinton and Stacy were against wearing garments with cartoon characters on them if you were over the age of 10. While I think they have good taste, I disagree with them on that. I’m all about graphic shirts with my favorite characters on them, so long as I look age appropriate. And I think I did today.

outfit details:

  • top: Forever 21
  • pants: Levis
  • shoes: Converse
  • necklace: Tiffany’s (hybrid of my necklace + bracelet)
  • ring: garage sale

  1. i have to agree: Dino Chucks > paint/comic chucks! anytime!
    The tee it´s so cute, We don´t have F21, but a store a long time ago had Minnie and Daisy (separated) shirts, a little on the shopaholic side, (“shop ´til you drop” was writing on) but very cute, too bad my size was out of stock!

    • Hi Cristal! Ooh, I HATE when stores run out of my size in cute things! I actually went to F21 last night with a friend and saw the cutest 60s/hippie looking dress but they didn’t have any Larges left. >_<

      • Hello Nina!
        yeah i know! totally sucks!
        besides it´s a weird phenomena, either the only make a few thing, or somehow a lot of people on your same size gets there first. It´s a mistery O.o
