The best part about Dapper day? It's a weekend long event which means double the fashion and Disney. Day two this spring took place at Epcot my favorite park and I may be biased but it was definitely the best of the days.

The March Disneybound challenge!

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that my love of Disney is all-encompassing. When I first found out about Disney bounding I fell instantly in love. I not only get to dress up in outfits inspired by my characters but I also get to wear them to the parks! It truly doesn't get any better than that. True to who I am, I always have my own take on the bounds. I do a vintage twist on them which is known as Dapper bounding but we can talk about that in a different post. The March Disney bound challenge is a way to combine my love of Disney, fashion and bounding into one. For 31 days the Disney community becomes one ALL OVER THE WORLD. I'm not kidding when I say fans from Canada to Tokyo join in. It is an incredible event to be a part of one that brings us together due to our love of Disney. You don't have to do all thirty days or even all the prompts, you can join in whenever works best for you. The main idea is to have fun and bring the community together. I did all 31 days because I truly wanted to push myself and get my creativity going. It isn't called the Disney bound challenge for nothing!
