I’ve been out of commission for pretty much the entire month of November (the kid and I both got knocked down with a nasty flu), so I am launching this a little late, but better late than never!
Live in the shop now is my new styling service!
I’ve had a lot of requests for personal shopping/styling over the years, and I decided to pull the trigger on offering a completely online service. That way anyone can benefit from it, not just people here in LA.
First step will be to complete a small questionnaire like this:
This will be in Word format so you can complete and email to me. No need to print or scan anything.
Then I will create a head-to-toe look, including shoes, jewelry and accessories and send you a style sheet like this:
I will send it both as a jpg and pdf. The pdf will be fully clickable and shoppable. Each look is $25. I checked other services that are similar and they run between 50 and 100 a look, so I am offering a great discount on the work (I know, times are tough all over, believe me!)
I hope that this will help some of you dip a toe into exploring your style. I also hope that this can help get you Insta-ready for your next park visit (any park, not just Disney). Speaking of which, I will consult the particular park/event you are going to for any dress code rules and will follow them so you don’t need to worry about compliance on those.
With restrictions easing everywhere, most theme parks have started or in the case of Knott’s, restarted, their food festival programs. These “Taste of…” events are a lot of fun and a safe way to get out of the house for a bit.
Besides that, a chance to enjoy some great food!
I’ve never been to the Knott’s Boysenberry Festival before, but I can say that I will never miss one again. The food was amazing, honestly, beyond amazing. I’m no foodie, but I had such an amazing time!
Everything was outside and no rides operating, but the Ghost Town residents of Calico were socially distant and out and about to interact with the guests. There were also some Peanuts characters available for socially distant, but still great, photos.
There may be some tickets still available here. If you can go, I highly recommend it.
Now, for the wardrobe. I went with a nice springtime 50’s look from Rosegal. I added purple accessories, cause, boysenberries, from Amazon.
I have a couple of tees that I purchased recently that are cropped. While I like the fit, I also don’t really like to bare my midriff. This skirt is super high-waisted, so that solves the problem nicely.
This skirt is a staple of both rockabilly looks as well as 80’s inspired looks.

The sunglasses are coming to the store this Thursday, the 25th! These shades are a great cat-eye shape with a matte finish and feature our ducky logo. I’ve been road-testing these for the past couple months and the logo has proven to be water/sweat proof, has not faded at all and has stayed put.
Get your own pair this Thursday for only $14.95! Just click on the shop link at the top of the page.
With COVID cases finally declining, our Governor lifted stay-at-home orders and the ban on outside dining recently.
Boyfriend Bill and I took advantage of that and took a day off to go to Downtown Disney.
In addition, Disney has opened the main street and Hollywood section of Disney’s California Adventure for shopping.
I did make note of the fact that work has resumed on Avenger’s Campus, which makes me more happy than I could ever express. To celebrate that, I wore my Black Widow Disney Dress Shop dress by Her Universe.
I picked up one of the new Nuimos. Nuimos were a huge hit in Japan, and now they have made their way to the USA. They are fully posable with a variety of fashionable looks to choose from. I chose Daisy, cause, duck. I bought her a cute ensemble that makes her super stylish I think! Shop for Nuimos online here. It is also important to note that Her Universe will be designing everyday cosplay looks for Nuimos. So, your toys can bound too! Feel free to use a Team Build Checklist for them as well (wink)! Maybe I should make some tiny Team Build Checklists…
As always, the Disney Dress Shop dresses look amazing and are super comfortable. I love the design on this dress as well. And yes, there are pockets! Get your own dress here.
I love the vibrant color and the fabric is a super stretchy and comfy scuba, so it keeps its shape. I also love the length, which is just below the knee. You can turn it into a move vintage look by adding a petticoat.
For our latest outfit of the day, I styled this new awesome t-shirt from Forever 21.
It’s not everyday that you find a t-shirt with Shakespeare on it.
The English nerd in me, snagged this immediately!
I styled it with an 80’s-inspired oversized blazer from Lane Bryant. I added pins to the lapel. Pins are my actual pins and buttons from the 80’s, with the exception of the ducky enamel pin, which is from our InPlainSight store. In addition, you can’t pose with a Shakespeare shirt and NOT have a skull on hand. Mine is from Michael’s. Click on links to buy.
Our latest outfit of the day all comes from Amazon.
I love it when I find a look that is both size-inclusive and affordable.
This black dress fits me beautifully and gives me the “new look” silhouette that I absolutely love. The fabric is soft and has stretch. It is size inclusive, going up to a 4xl. The size chart is accurate in the photo gallery. Not only that, but the price is right at $32.99. Get your own on Amazon.
The rest of the look also comes from Amazon. Click on these links to buy the petticoat, belt and beret.
Our next outfit of the day also comes from Torrid and their Betsey Johnson collection. In addition, it will make a great Valentine’s Day look.
I absolutely love this skirt! It is so comfortable and cute. I really love how it can be dressed up or down. So far, I’ve loved pairing it with t-shirts and moto jackets, but you can easily add a more formal blouse or sweater set for a more upscale look.
