Merchandise Spotlight – Walt Disney World January 2, 2014

For this week’s merchandise spotlight, I take a peek at some of the new women’s shirts, jackets, and accessories that can be found at Walt Disney World.

I thought that I would start off this merchandise spotlight with my favorite merchandise…purses!

I am always up for a great tote, and there were a few new park and character totes that I really love.

TrenD Report: Window Shopping For The Holidays

Guess who’s back?

Back again.

Shelley’s back.

Grab a friend…

Cause it’s time to go window shopping at my favorite Downtown Disney store…TrenD!!!

While it has been awhile since I have posted a TrenD Report (my sincere apologies), I thought that this would be a great time to visit my favorite store to get some gift ideas for myself and my friends.

I was really excited to see that there were some new colder weather options available! While the Tink and Mickey sweatshirt ponchos are a little different, they are really cute on and super comfortable. And I absolutely adore the sequin Minnie Mouse bow sweatshirts (I am partial to the red one)!

It’s great to see more Harveys bags at TrenD! The new Minnie Leopard bags are in stock, and look great! I think the charm is a great touch on these bags!

And what screams trend right now more than chevrons? And there are some really cute bags and accessories that feature Mickey’s silhouette in a chevron pattern. The bags shape is super on trend with the double handles, but I wish that it was more of a ‘fall/winter’ fabric. It’s still cute, but with the weight of the fabric it seems more of a summer purse to me.

Disney Dooney and Bourke D23 Expo Launch

Disney Dooney and Bourke

Amid a ton of buzz and excitement, a new pattern of Disney Dooney and Bourke purses debuted at the D23 Expo Dream Store.

As you can see from the picture above, this pattern is a twist on a familiar favorite pattern! I was not a huge fan of the Disney Dooney and Bourke comic pattern in the past, so I was really interested in seeing this new addition in person.

The negative comic, no name has been formally given so this is what I am going with, is a very dark pattern. And while we have seen more patterns shift to a black background this bag takes it to another level.

I am always on the lookout for a black purse, and these bags are great! I really like the grey that they chose, and since the pattern features such a dark color palate it feels more sophisticated and ‘dressy’. But, I really think that these would look great with a red and white polka dot scarf tied to the strap to add a little whimsy and fun to the bag!Disney Dooney and Bourke Tassel Tote

Fall 2013 LeSportsac It’s A Small World Collection

With five successful seasons of our Mary Blair-inspired journey around the globe complete, it’s time to jet off to our final Disney It’s a Small World destination. The chilly weather of fall will soon begin, but our upcoming collection will hold on to the heat with an escape to Tropical Paradise! Though the mountains divide, and the oceans are wide, it truly is a small small world after all…

Polynesian Paradise print was inspired by the Polynesia scenes of the Disneyland and Walt Disney World parks’ “it’s a small world” attraction. The Polynesia room’s volcano and ocean landscapes are visible on the product, and the adorable hula girls and surfer boys charm their way onto the print as well. Placed on a black ground, the Polynesian children are accompanied by the theme park attraction’s mermaids, tropical flowers, and toucans. All styles in Polynesian Paradise print (except the Ryan Baby Bag) include the adorable hula girl Ipo Charm. New to our Disney It’s a Small World style offerings this final season is the Small Veronica Hobo – a small, sleek hobo with two detachable strap options for ultimate functionality! (Arriving in August)

LeSportsac It’s A Small World Purse Giveaway!!!

Hi, my name is Shelley and I am a purse addict.

Seven Months ago, Dave got me a LeSportsac It’s A Small World Purse and cosmetic case in the London Pattern for the holidays and I was hooked!

What really drew me to the LeSportsac purses is that they are super light-weight, durable, and come in sizes and shapes that are extremely practical while still being stylish.

Above all else, is that these LeSportsac It’s A Small World purses are inspired by Mary Blair’s artwork for the attraction. The colors, whimsical patterns, and playful doll charms all are such special touches that make these purses special to me.

TrenD Report: Time To Get Ready For Spring And Le Sportsac Giveaway

TrenD Report – April 9, 2013

After my last Hit and Miss TrenD Report, I was BEYOND excited to find so many great things at my favorite store just in time for my Birthday (Do you hear that dear Hubby?)!

It is definitely time to get ready for spring at TrenD, because there are a ton of great tanks available! I love that the tanks all have a little something that makes them so perfect for so many styles and occasions. I really love the fun and flirty floral details that are being used on these tanks that are perfect for spring and summer!

I was also super excited to see two new styles of Maxi Dresses, since the last few styles have sold out! They have stayed with their love of black and white in a fun layered Hidden Mickey Maxi Dress. And expanding on the popularity of the Bambi Maxi Dress, they have a new style that is so adorable and perfect for a sunny Sunday!

TrenD Report – November 5, 2012

TrenD Report – November 5, 2012

Why yes, it is that time again! Time to go window shopping at my favorite store in Walt Disney World…TrenD!

While in past reports I have been really excited about the purses, you could easily say that I have a Disney Purse Problem, this time I am really excited about the clothing!

In the past TrenD clothes have been really about the trends and fads, but they seem to be coming to more of a middle ground in that the designs that they are featuring are more stylish than trendy which is a nice change for some of the pieces.

And you can find a large majority of these pieces scattered around Walt Disney World, I always find in my TrenD Reports its always fun to see how they mix the pieces from the park into more normal brands of clothing.

Also, I found that they are starting to make more Disney-fied skirts and dresses which is a great addition to the shirts that they offer!

Summer Merchandise Is Out And About At The Walt Disney World Resort!

The summer merchandise is out and it is so amazingly cute it hurts!

I hope that you enjoy this look at some of the new summer merchandise that is out in the parks!
