This weeks pin is actually from my "Spring has Sprung" board, a dress from my favorite shop, Antropologie.
"Tink" inspiration.



Last weeks "Pin" was my Tinkerbell Sweatband for my Tinkerbell Half Marathon. So I planned on going to Disneyland after the race and wanted to dress "Tink" inspired and this dress was a great way to do that. With the help of this pin from my "All Things Amanda" board. 


Okay, so I know this was going a little "Cinderella" by making my own dress. 
Source: Disney







No mice to help me, but I must have had some good "Cinderella" vibes because the zipper went in like a dream. I hate zippers.

*Insert: A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes 

Anyways, the fabric is green linen with embroidered flowers. It was difficult to find a really good green material that I liked. 
My photo that I told you about from the Race.
So after the race, even though I had a hard time moving around. Lance and I went to Disneyland. *Note: I wanted to take photos of my dress near the castle. 

He hadn't been to the park in years, he only remembers riding It's A Small World, Splash Mountain and a submarine ride which I assume is now the Finding Nemo ride. 

So I had to take him on my favorites which were Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain

So we go to ride Splash Mountain. This isn't a ride that I would normally go on...but he wants to go. I was lucky to be seated at the very front with four adults behind me...

This is evidence that I love him, right?


So much for getting some photos of my dress in front of the castle when I am dripping wet!
Let's just say this is why I don't ride Splash Mountain.


Afterwards, it took some time to dry out. However it left my dress in a wrinkled mess. Ah HELL!

But I can't complain because my dear husband took some great photos for me in front of the castle. He is so much better than *Ryan Gosling.

Hope you enjoyed my dress. If you have any questions please let me know.

  2. Your dress looks fabulous... when its dry, that is!!! The little pleats at the waist give it just the right amount of fullness...
