One of the things we did for my Disney cocktail party was ask everyone to Disney Bound – if you’re not familiar, it’s when you wear normal clothing but in the color or style of a Disney character. We had a lot of fun trying to guess who everyone was dressed as. People kept asking me if I was a more obscure character. And I said, “No, I’m an extremely popular character, just wearing a more obscure outfit!”
For the party I went with Elsa’s coronation dress. I was shopping at Target for something and found this dress and decided to work off of that. I love the colors to Elsa’s coronation outfit. And can I just say, I love this dress. It works well with a sweater and leggings for the winter, and I think it’s going to be cute for summer/spring too. It’s actually on clearance at Target here for only $8.98! I’m contemplating buying it in red as well, that’s how much I love this dress. Since it is on clearance I don’t know how long it will be around, so I found a similar one here on Amazon with long sleeves.
One thing I love about this dress in particular is the little lace detailing on the shoulders and back. You can’t see it with the sweater on, but when you take the sweater off it’s really cute. Plus Elsa’s outfit has black shoulders and sleeves so I like that shoutout to it.
In order to recreate the appearance of Elsa’s cape I actually already had the perfect outfit in my closet – a long cardigan that happened to be almost the exact same color as her cape! I had gotten it in my Golden Tote a couple of months ago. It was tough to find another sweater on Amazon that is that exact color, but I think this one comes pretty close.
Because it was winter when I was wearing this outfit, I paired it with black leggings and boots. I’m a big fan of my black suede-esque boots and wear them all the time in the winter – so much so that they are getting pretty worn and I’ll probably have to replace them soon!
Finally, to complete the look, I added a gold belt. Elsa’s dress has a lot of detailing and I didn’t want to go overboard in recreating that, but she does have that lovely gold detail around the waist so I figured the belt would add a little extra oomph.
Do you like this outfit? What Disney Bound do you think I should tackle next?
