Cath Kidston Minnie Mouse Dress OOTD

6 Feb

 

Today’s post features a dress that was on the top of my wishlist for a long time, before it finally found its way to my wardrobe. The Cath Kidston and Disney collaboration featuring Mickey and Minnie was long anticipated and as soon as I saw the two dresses that would be in the collection I knew I had to have them!

Cath Kidston Disney Minnie Mouse DressHaving already gone through the drama of buying the Winnie the Pooh dress a few weeks earlier, I knew that getting the dress as far as my basket would be a struggle. So I signed up to the advance preview list and as soon as my email came with the password, I was on the Cath Kidston website. Unfortunately despite my best efforts I only managed to get one of the dresses I wanted, before they all sold out. That was the Mickey in London dress, which I will also feature on here soon.

So I gave up on ever owning this dress. Until a few days ago when I got an email saying a few more were in stock, so I instantly bought one and two days later, there it was in my hands!

Disney Mini Mouse Cath Kidston DressThe dress will really come into its own in the summer when I can wear it on its own with some sandals, but for now I’ve been wearing it with a long sleeved top underneath, with tights and ankle boots. The dress is made from a lovely thick textured cotton and fastens at the side with an invisible zip. Like all my Cath Kidston dresses the quality is absolutely lovely. I usually try to not spend a fortune on clothes, but Cath Kidston dresses are one thing I like to splurge on because they fit well, wash like a dream and last ages. This one cost £70.

Minnie Mouse Cath Kidston DressMy only qualm with CK dresses is the length, I find them a little short on both the body and the skirt. This is mostly because I’m used to wearing original vintage and reproduction dresses and skirts, which usual sit on or just below the knee. But I guess its nice to have a change and its not really put me off any of the lovely designs so far.

Cath Kidston Winnie The Pooh Dress OOTD

24 Oct

I had been looking forward to the Cath Kidston and Disney collaboration, since I first heard about it a few months ago. I knew there would be a dress in the range and I was determined to own it. As the range was a limited edition I knew it would be hard to get my hands on one, so I signed up for the early bird newsletter and luckily managed to get the dress in my basket within ten minutes of it going online.

disney-cath-kidston-winnie-the-pooh-dress-2These sold out so quickly, by later that evening there were none left so I was definitely one of the lucky ones. So is the dress worth the fuss? In some ways I feel I got a little sucked into the hype of this collaboration. I absolutely love Cath Kidston and Winnie the Pooh, so I was always going to love this range. However I very rarely wear polka dots, so this is a bit of an exception for me. I think it’s really cute how the polka dots are incorporated into the print though, but it would have been nice to have had a floral dress option too.

disney-winnie-the-pooh-dressMy other misgiving with this dress is the length. It’s just a little bit too short for me. Although I love wearing shorter 60s dresses, to me this style of dress would look better sitting at knee length. Other than that the dress is wonderful, I love the thick textured fabric and the overall shape and as a collectors item, this was a great addition to my wardrobe.

winnie-the-pooh-cath-kidston-dressI wore mine with some vintage red and yellow jewellery and my favourite yellow Miss L Fire shoes, to bring out the colours in the polka dot balloons. I’m looking forward to trying it out with different accessories and making it work for the winter.

I am really looking forward to the next Disney Collaboration from Cath Kidston. Here’s hoping I’ll get lucky and get my hands on the next dress from the range!

Tea in the Woods at Sketch

7 May

Last week was a real treat for me. To celebrate the launch of Disney’s Into The Woods being released on DVD on 18th May, I was invited to Sketch for a fairytale themed afternoon tea.

Disney Into the Woods Sketch

Sketch is an absolutely amazing venue on Conduit Street in Mayfair, as well as offering amazing food and cakes it is also so much fun to have a look round the amazing decorations and themed rooms. I have wanted to go there for ages, I even worked on the same road for a couple of years but never got round to eating there!

The Glade Sketch

The event was held in The Glade, a beautiful woodland themed room with beautiful trees painted on the walls and wicker furniture, which really makes you feel like your having afternoon tea in an enchanted forest. The Disney Into the Woods theme was fully embraced with cakes and pastries inspired by fairy tales. I loved the Red Riding Hood Choux and Jack’s Beanstalk Tart best.

The afternoon tea will be available at Sketch from Monday 18th May to Sunday 7th June at £39 per person. You can walk in to enjoy the treats in the Glade or book online and have your afternoon tea in the Gallery, which is an absolutely beautiful pretty pink restaurant area. The first 30 people to book will also receive a copy of the film on DVD as well as the soundtrack. Perfect for die-hard disney fans.

Sketch was the perfect match for the film as it incorporates fantasy and magic in it’s decoration and menus. Everything tasted absolutely delicious and it was such a luxury to try everything as well as indulge in a little champagne before switching over to one of the many teas offered on the menu.

The film is a modern twist on several traditional fairytales which we are all familiar with. Meryl Streep leads an all star cast in this musical which incorporates Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Repunzel. The original story is all about daring to venture Into the Woods. The Blu-Ray DVD release includes lots of fantastic bonus features including a never before seen song.

Pre order your copy of  Into the Woods from Amazon.
