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.

There were also tons of great new earrings!!! I am going to have to get the chocolate rhinestone Mickey earrings, but the Mickey silver studs with the LOVE cuff were totally different and neat!

While I am not a fan of the crop tops, I was happy to see that there were fewer of them to show on this TrenD Report!!!

Now that I shared a few of my thoughts on what I found, let’s get to window shopping!!!

TrenD Report: November 11, 2013

And if that wasn’t enough Downtown Disney shopping awesomeness, Did you see the news about the Marketplace Co Op that is coming to what is currently Team Mickey?

Beginning in early 2014, construction will begin on the Marketplace Co Op which will feature an innovative store design!

The Marketplace Co Op will consist of six new spaces at its opening, and they will be:

  • Beautifully Disney – A beauty destination for woman featuring make-up, fragrance and beauty accessories.
  • Cherry Tree Lane – Accessories for the sophisticated woman with a passion for scarves, shoes, bags and jewelry.
  • D-Tech on Demand – A place to personalize and customize your own electronic accessories.
  • The Trophy Room- Vintage inspired, lifestyle sports apparel and collectibles.
  • Centerpiece – Home product for Guests that want a splash of Disney in their room furnishings, textiles and everyday ware.
  • Zoey and Pickles – A girls’ destination containing the latest trends and glamour for the up and coming fashionista.

I am BEYOND excited about D-Tech on Demand, because I am hoping that they will expand their phone case customizations from the 12 options that they debuted at this year’s Star Wars Weekends!

So what do you think? I’d love to hear what you’ll be putting on your holiday Wish List and what Marketplace Co Op space you’re most excited about!!!

Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets Debut at D23 Expo

Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets

 

At the D23 Expo Dream Store, new designs of the popular Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets debuted and they are awesome!

Alex and Ani creates eco-friendly, positive energy jewelry that is made in America are extremely well made! Designed by Carolyn Rafaelian to incorporate powerful symbolism and design into each (+) energy piece, Alex and Ani pieces are a great way to express yourself and show your love for Disney in a more sophisticated and personal way.

I am a HUGE fan of stacking bracelets, because you really get the chance to express yourself through your choices of charms and designs. And while I have seen the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets around property, I never gave them a try. I have wide hands, so usually bangles are a problem for me to wear. However, since they are expandable the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets are a great fit for any size wrist or hand!

At the Alex and Ani area inside the D23 Expo Dream Store, I had a chance to see some of the new Disney bracelets that will be hitting the parks soon!

This was a D23 Expo Exclusive Alex and Ani Disney Bracelet Pouch.

Something to keep in mind about the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets in the park is that they tend to fly out of stores! So if you are in the parks and see one that you want…Buy it now!!! There is absolutely nothing worse than wanting something that you can’t find later!

Here is where you can find the Alex and Ani Disney Bracelets in the Parks:

Walt Disney World Locations

Disneyland Locations

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!

They’re also using a lot of sketch designs in their shirts this year, and it’s super fun! From regular cotton shirts with fun details, to burnout t-shirts perfect for hot days, and even some great purses!

I was also able to find some fun jewelry and watches on this visit. It is great to see designs that work so well on shirts featured on watches, bracelets, and necklaces! I am especially in love with the layered necklaces!

The only item that I was on the fence about was a shiny vinyl bowler bag…it seems more appropriate for the fall, but it could also double as a fun carryon for summer trips.

The Le Sportsac It’s a Small World Global Journey Collection has found its way to TrenD, and it is quite possibly my new favorite pattern! The charm is more understated, and the pattern is more sophisticated. I love it!!!

This brings me to the fun new twist to my TrenD Report I talked about last report! I am going to start giving away one of my favorite pieces that I find once a month. And this month I will be giving away a LeSportsac Rectangular Cosmetic Case to one lucky reader!

Congratulations Liz on winning the LeSportsac Case!!!

I hope that you enjoyed this TrenD Report and that you have fun entering the contest! Good Luck!

DISCLAIMER: I bought the Le Sportsac Cosmetic Case only using my Annual Pass Discount (Hooray 10%), and isn’t sponsored by anyone…well except for me! 🙂
