disney dreams.

My Japan/ Malaysia holiday is drawing closer and closer (less than three weeks to go) and I can't believe it's finally here. Jack and I have been planning this trip for almost a year and the first thing we pushed to the top of our itinerary was our visit to Disneyland. Both of us are hardcore Disneyland fanatics (we even forked out the extra money to stay at the Disneyland hotel) - we've been mentally preparing ourselves for Tokyo Disneyland/ Disney Sea by watching travel documentaries about the rides, attractions and must do's. 

I can't tell you what it is about Disneyland (if you haven't already, put this on your list of things to do before you die), but anyone who has been to any Disneyland will tell you that the experience is absolutely magical. It is truly the happiest place (and certainly my 'happy place') on earth. 

Take my ultimate holiday destination, add some of Disney's most loveable characters and stories, and deck it out in the Isabel Marant, Givenchy, Stella McCartney and Pucci - and you have my favourite things in life all rolled into one. I am absolutely in love with the styling of the Monsters Inc. and Toy Story toy soldier looks - they are flawless and match the mood/ theme of the shoot perfectly. The editorial is both playful and whimsical and yet still maintained the dramatic, eye catching qualities of a high fashion shoot. I say there should be more shoots at Disneyland. I'm not quite sure who to thank at Elle France for making my fantasyland a dream come true, but whoever you are, I salute you.


  1. Love this! But then again, who wouldn't love fashion and disney mixed together. You should check out the shoot Annie Liebo-(however you spell her name) did that was disney/old fashioned movie themed. She did Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and then a slew of different disney movies where celebrities played the characters i.e Giselle as Pochahontas
