Trying Out Disneybound Dressing

 Dress from Liz Alig, vintage white button-up blouse from Shipwreck vintage, Target shoes and straw hat from a local boutique store called Sloan here in Portland.

Hello Hello, my Lovelies!!!

Surprise! I have something brand new for you I wanted to share today which is something that's been a bit of a phenomenon lately, it's called DISNEYBOUND dressing. Ever heard of it???

Disney Bounding Definition
When it comes to Disneybounders the concept comes from instead of wearing full-on costumes as coplayers do, Disneybounders dress up in a stylish, everyday outfit (known as Disneybounders) that are simply inspired by a particular character.

Can you see from my look above my resemblance to Belle from Beauty and The Beast (one of my all-time favorite Disney movies) ???

At first, when I received this incredible dress in the mail from a new sustainable brand called, Liz Alig I had no idea that I'd be dressing as one of my favorite Disney characters but here we are. Originally I wanted to make this look feel very vintage and have a throwback feel to it which it does I think but it turned out WAAAYYY better than I could've imagined. I'm definitely going to keep this new costume creation on the back burner for this years Halloween costume rotation. What do you think?

I also wanted to talk to you guys about this amazing sustainable designer Liz Alig. The dress she gifted me is a size Large and made from a recycled flour sack, can you believe that? Liz Alig creates clothing mindfully from the fit to use the fibers they use. They design clothing that is easy to style and comfortable, using recycled and handwoven textiles. They produce their collections with fair trade cooperatives around the world who are empowering women through education and meaningful employment. 

This dress is called the Louissa dress and is made from recycled flour sacks - that's just like the dresses your Grandmother used to wear. These flour sacks are sourced from local markets in Ghana, Africa. Because of their recycled nature, some of the bags have more noticeable printing on them. It is also sewn up by a group of women entrepreneurs on the coast of Ghana - each has their own tailoring business! Because this dress used to be a flour sack, the fabric may have small imperfections.

Well, that's all I have for you today, I hope you guys have enjoyed this quirky new post learning about what Disneybounding is and my new fav brand Liz Alig.

Have a fantastic rest of your week everyone!!!
