We are Minnie Muses (Minnie Mouse Fashion Redux)
November 30th, 2010 • 30 Comments
If you’re an avid reader of my good friend Tricia’s blog (and I’m pretty sure you are), you would know she’s a little bit on the obsessive side when it comes to Minnie Mouse. It’s no secret really, as evidenced by this and this (though I would say, her Hello Kitty addiction is on a rather different level). As for me, I’m a self-declared hipster, I will wear anything I deem kitschy and cute–let’s just say, I grew up watching Disney, so it’s no surprise really. Besides, my first ever precious possession was my a hip-high stuffed Minnie Mouse plush from Disneyland. So getting apparel from a fashion brand that deems Minnie Mouse as their muse? Just perfect.
This time, we decided to do-away with the ears and what have you. Vote for this look on chictopia!

It’s fun to be inspired by cartoon characters! I, for one, will admit that Beauty and the Beast’s Belle will always have the prettiest yellow dress in existence and some day, I am going to modernize that dress and wear it to some big party.
Kudos to our matching pumps and our matching lipstick! <3 We just came from our semi-joint birthday party prior to the shoot. Yes, we’re no longer Forever 21 and we’re pretty much 22.
The thing we realized, thanks to the Minnie Muse collection, is that Minnie Mouse can actually be glamorous and chic! Thank God Tricia talked me out of searching for yellow pumps–it’s not like it’s a Halloween party, right?

Sorry for the creases! Satin, when folded, often creases and I made the mistake of dumping it inside a plastic bag.
So if you’re a fan of the female mouse, go over to F21 and get a few pieces from their collection. I swear that it is inexpensive and so worth it. If you’re not a fan and know people who are, get a gift card (available in 1000 php credits/ 2000 php credits) and have them choose their favourite pieces.
Last, since I am neglectful and wasn’t able to announce who won my contest, here it is–congrats Nettie!
