Heart of Haute vending at the DAPPER DAY EXPO Spring 2015

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! 

Tips for the Best Dapper Day!

If you haven't heard about it... Dapper Day is an event held at different Disney theme parks twice a year, where everyone is encouraged to wear their best outfit!  Whether that may be inspired by a specific era like the 1950s, or just your own personal style!  Some park-goers have even used Dapper Day to create unique disneybounding outfits.  Celebrities like Drake Bell & Dita Von Teese are known to appear as well!
If you're planning on going to Dapper Day for the first time this year, here's our list of just a few things to get yourself ready for the big day.
Wear flats! Sorry, gals.  If you wish for blisters then by all means - wear those adorable heels!  But my advice is to go for a comfortable, cute alternative.  Or bring along a pair of flats to switch in and out of for comfort.
 

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.

 Set aside time for the Expo! There is lots of tempting shopping inside Disneyland & Downtown Disney, but since you're going to be there for Dapper Day, why not check out the Dapper Day Expo!  Many big and small pinup reproduction clothing companies will be vending there, as well as lots and LOTS of vintage!!  The perfect chance to try on some of your favorite brands, and find your new favorite pieces. There are also super cool things like the Styling Suite & Sketch Studio! We will be vending at the expo, too! It's free for anyone to attend, located in the Grand Californian Hotel.  Saturday, February 28th from 12pm-9pm and Sunday, March 1st from 10am-8pm.
Check the weather before & dress accordingly!  Although Disneyland was built where it is because of Orange County's notoriously beautiful weather... mother nature sometimes has something else in mind. If the weather says it will be 90 degrees, you may want to think about skipping the seamed stockings and fur stole.  At Disneyland, you will be walking around a lot and shade is minimal, so remember to bring/wear sunscreen! Check out the Dapper Day gallery for inspiration!
Don't forget to take lots and lots of photos, and have FUN!  Dapper Day is a great chance to see the most fashionable vintage styles, make new friends, and have a wonderful day at the happiest place on earth!
So what about you, ladies?  Got any advice for Dapper Day attendees?

Dapper Day: Let's Get Fancy at Disneyland!

Dapper (adj.): neat and trim in appearance; very spruce and stylish There are two things that this particular Heart of Haute fan always has, and probably always will, love with every girly fiber of her being: Disneyland and getting dressed up (or as I like to say, “getting fancy!”) Thanks to the brilliance of a fellow named Justin, an event that combines these two loves of mine was created: Dapper Day.   [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="600"] Morganeli for Welton Becket and Associates, 1965 Tomorrowland[/caption] Inspired by the original concept artwork of Disneyland's designers, who portrayed park guests enjoying Disneyland's attractions dressed in their finest threads, Dapper Day is held twice a year (an all day event in Spring, and an evening affair in Autumn.)  It is also celebrated at Walt Disneyworld in Florida, and EuroDisney in Paris. A schedule of meet-up times is available, giving event goers a chance to meet like-minded stylish people, and make new fancy friends, (this year, they even had a singles mixer!) However, participants are encouraged to enjoy the Disney Parks at their own leisure. The Dapper Day events have also expanded to include a cocktail party called Folly, which is held in Los Angeles at different venues throughout the year.   While the Dapper Day website encourages participants to dress to the nines, they like to remind guests that this can mean anything from vintage to contemporary chic, and even dress uniform for those in active military duty, or retired military. I, of course, love to take the opportunity to choose from the Heart of Haute dresses I happen to own myself. Dapper Day has become an event that I keep in my calendar, and look forward to. I attended the most recent one last month, which marks my third Dapper Day Event. This time, I decided to rock the Beverly Dress in Peacock Dimensions (this dress never fails me!) as well as my favorite sunglasses of all time, the Ultra Lux cat eye sunglasses by Tres Noir in Pearl Horn. photo_9 photo_2   Take a peek at some of the photos from that fancy, fun-filled day. (There were even a few Heart of Haute fans, showing off their Heart of Haute dresses!) photo_8 photo_6 17_img8896a   This lovely lady was spotted in our Monte Carlo dress!!!photo_5   And check out this Heart of Haute in our Beverly Dress in Cerise.photo_4   The Beverly really is popular. Here it is in the new Peacock Lynette!photo_3 photo photo_1   I could go on and on about why Dapper Day has become so special to me, but I don't think anything I could say would really do it justice. There's something about being at Disneyland, surrounded by fellow fancy Disney-goers that's wonderfully magical. Whether it's the nostalgia for a time when dressing your best meant more than buying a skin-tight mini-dress at the mall, or the twinkling lights on King Arthur's Carousel at night as the backdrop for a picture perfect evening, Dapper Day has a way of enchantment that doesn't even need pixie dust (sorry Tinkerbell!) 17_dapper-day-9162a   With Love & No Regrets, Katrina Marie  >^.^<
