Do you like dressing up? Do you like Disneyland? If you said yes to both of these questions, then consider heading over to the “Magic Kingdom” this weekend for Dapper Day.
Dapper Day is a celebration of stepping out in style. This bi-annual event at Disneyland invites all who dare to be fashionable with a high emphasis on vintage styling. Although retro outfits are not required, all styles and designs are welcomed as long as you have the mentality of wearing your “Sunday Best”.
Roadkill Ranch has become a precursor to the events, and Rockabilly and Pinup aficionados frequent the shop during this time. It’s so great to see well dressed ladies and gentleman stopping by for a quick style fix.
A vendor called me the other day to tell me about a best T-shirt seller that reads: “Proud Supporter of Sweatpants and Messy Hair.” I had to politely decline. I just don’t think Roadkill customers would appreciate it. (That’s for another store and another park.) They might have better luck selling me something that says, “Always dress to kill.”
The first two pictures are outfits from Roadkill Ranch, modeled by Marlena Khamrov.
The last three are from last year’s Dapper Day.
