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!

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  >^.^<
