Fashion Friday: Minnie Mouse Style

When it comes to fashion, there is not much that is as girly as Minnie Mouse style. The sweet and timeless character has provided inspiration for almost 90 years. Although her true love Mickey is arguably the most popular animated character of all time, and is seen in just about everything under the sun, Minnie is just as beloved and popular especially in the fashion world. Designers are always giving us new and beautiful clothes, jewelry and accessories inspired by this colorful character, and many a style blog or fashion magazine highlight these inspired fashions from official character pieces to ones that incorporate her style, from red and black fashion, to polka dots and bows in just about every color. In this post I will be highlighting some of my own Minnie Mouse fashion pieces and places you can get them, or ones quite similar.

One of my first “Minnie” fashion purchases was this red and white polka dot purse from the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort.

Not only is it adorable, but was affordable at around $40, and excellent quality, especially because it is not real leather. I have had this purse for almost 4 years and it still practically looks like new.  This particular purse must be still popular because during my last trip to the park in December it was still available to purchase in the Le Bat en Rouge shop in New Orleans Square, along with an array of other delightful Minnie apparel.

If you can’t make it to the park, I found multiple listings on Ebay!

Around the same time, I purchased some adorable bow earrings. They are costume jewelry but good quality and nicely sized, shown here alone, and with a penny to give you an idea.

These are no longer available but the style remains popular. If you feel like treating yourself, Pandora released very similar earrings that are even more beautiful.

Another World of Disney purchase was this Minnie Mouse Sequin Bow Sweater $54.95

It is a thin sweater, but super cozy and soft. I love the sequin bow. They are very tightly woven and intricate and sparkle beautifully. Select sizes are still available on The Disney Store and I found a listing for size small on Ebay. Keep checking. More may pop up! Disney Store, Ebay $64.95

Lastly, I adore Lauren Conrad’s fashion line for Kohls. Her pieces are beautiful, feminine and do not break the bank. I have several tops and dresses from her line, include some of her many Disney inspired ones. She has done special tributes to Cinderella, Bambi, and you guessed it, Minnie Mouse, which so far has been my personal favorite. I purchased a red dress with a hat and bow pattern, and a coral blouse with a lace and polka dot peter pan collar, and mouse ear and polka dot pattern.

These special inspired lines have limited runs, but as always you can always find listings on Ebay. Here is all of the Lauren Conrad Minnie Apparel available on Ebay.
