We’ve been talking about it for a while. Now is finally the time to present you what we have been working on with the Youtuber Chloé Petite Nymphe.
Did you succeed decoding the clues we left you ? The answer is now.
WHAT IS DISNEY BOUNDING ?
The Disney Bounding movement started in 2011 on the impetus of blogger Leslie Kay in a rather unexpected way. Leslie was at that time writing a blog about the Disney world which she was an absolute fan. The blog in question was called Disney-Bound.
In 2011, excited about her upcoming and first childhood visit to Walt Disney World Amusement Park, she delved into her closets and composed contemporary Disney-inspired outfits for her trip. Her idea was acclaimed and quickly taken up by all fans of the brand.
Since then, her blog DisneyBound.co shares weekly ideas inspired by Disney characters.
With Chloe, we just fell in love with the concept. Being Disney fans ourselves, it did not take us a long time to take actions.
WHY MINNIE MOUSE ?
Although she is Mickey’s love partner, they never officially married. Minnie has a personality that we just love. She doesn’t let anybody tell her what she has to do and she doesn’t need anybody to be strong.
In Plane Crazy, for example, she uses her underwears as a parachute and sets an example to American women during World War II. As a matter of fact, she showed them how to re-use the culinary fats to make ammunition for soldiers on the front.
She is a woman (or rather a mouse) with many faces. She is an outstanding detective, a feminist, a businesswoman, a very feminine lover and even a nightclub boss.
She also has her own recognizable and affirmed style. And above all, Minnie does not lack audacity, courage and self-confidence!
DECODING MINNIE MOUSE’S LOOK
The goal of DisneyBounding is to re-create a Disney character with clothes from the everyday life.
This is by no means a costume. You must be able to go out with your outfit without feeling disguised.
The DisneyBounding simply borrows the stylistic codes of the character.
For Minnie, it’s red, white, and yellow. The Preppy knot and look are also strong markers of Minnie’s style.
So we used our reversible dress Lumi on the red side for the outfit. Chloe then skilfully paired the dress with a white shirt with black polka dots, a pair of black tights, yellow shoes and a red headband.
And to be in the mood, we took the pictures in the magical setting of Disney Village.
FEEL LIKE RECREATING THE LOOK YOURSELF ?
To create this look, we used:
- a red and white polka dot headband from Claire’s
- a white polka dot shirt
- yellow mustard pumps from Gemo
- black tights
- the reversible dress Lumi of our brand Les Petites Ambitieuses, red side and its 2 belts.
Do not forget makeup! To guide you, Chloe prepared a very detailed tutorial on her youtube channel. Watch it now !
