It's true!!! We're coming back to Dapper Day! We had such a great time in the Fall, we couldn't help but return with more amazing dresses, tops, and skirts just for you this Spring! Dapper Day is a twice-yearly event where Disney Parks attendees dress in their retro best - inspired by any area you want, although the 1950s and 1960s are the most common.
We've actually taken the time to make EXCLUSIVE pieces just for Spring 2015 Dapper Day, so if you're planning to attend, be sure to stop by our booth at the DAPPER DAY EXPO located in the Grand Californian Hotel, Sequoia Ballroom this Saturday and Sunday, February 28 and March 1st. The Expo is free and open to the public! Hope to see you there!
Set your makeup & hair. A simple makeup mist spray can save you from having to touch up your blush every hour! You can find affordable makeup setting sprays, like this one from e.l.f. cosmetics. You'll want to keep your bag light, so bring just your beauty essentials. Also, it's important to keep in mind that fast rides like Space Mountain & the Matterhorn may mess up your fabulous hairdo! Make sure you're ready for touch ups if you plan on riding the Disneyland classics.
