Tale As Old As Time

Vintage Inspired by Jackie Atomic Jax Mrs. Potts Inspired Disney Bound Dress

Is there anything better than a fun Disneybound?  Anyone who knows me is aware of my Beauty and the Beast obsession (I did name my child after Belle, you know).  It's by far my favorite Disney movie so I'm always looking for fun Disneybound outfits to wear to Disneyland and beyond.  The queen of Disneybound designs, Vintage Inspired by Jackie, came up with this take on Mrs. Potts and I fell head over heels in love with this dress!  A perfect homage to the beloved character but cute and comfy enough to wear on the regular, this dress is a wearable piece of art.

The Mrs. Potts dress is made from lush 100% cotton and features a sweetheart neckline, fully lined bodice, adjustable straps, a super full gathered skirt with a hidden side pocket, and a back zippered closure.  This dress is made so intricately, everything from the custom sizing to the ric rac trim.  Jackie made this to my measurements, but I've since lost a few pounds so it's just a tad big in the waist on me now.  But the belt was the perfect touch!  I have yet to wear this to Disneyland, but I have a feeling it will make its debut this spring!  If you're looking for a custom made, high quality Disneybound outfit, I highly recommend contacting Jackie.  If she doesn't have the bound you're looking for, she's more than happy to make your dream come true!  That's what she did for my Loki dress!

Can I just talk about these pictures for a minute?  A few weeks ago I went out to photograph this dress and the results were disastrous.  The lighting was off, my hair was a mess, I hated them so much.  I decided to scrap them and take them again the next time I had a free moment.  Well, I rescheduled and went out to take these photos on a cloudy day, which can be ideal because you don't have to worry about shadows.  Unfortunately, it started raining hard the minute I had finished setting up my camera.  Rain and lots of unprecedented wind.  While it was complicated, I definitely got it done.  I quickly started to break down my gear and guess what happened?  The wind and rain stopped.  Of course by this time, my hair and makeup was a mess and this dress was quite damp.  You best believe I was cursing the clouds at that moment!  Thankfully, I had taken enough photos to get the ones you see here and I'm pretty happy with them (considering the circumstances).  Hopefully this was just a fluke situation, I don't think I can take many more weather sabotages!

  1. Oh gosh, the photography disasters! I haaate it when that happens. I just had a photoshoot feel totally off recently and I hate the way my hair looked and the light went totally sour... definitely going to re-shoot! I'm glad you got these, though, they're so cute! And that dress is perfect. I adore it.
