Bambi Dress Perfectly Exemplifies Cartoon Couture For Grownass Women

little mermaidI’m torn between thinking these Disney dresses are totally absurd and that they would be sort of creepily reminiscent of the whole (HOLE!) Courtney Love kinderwhore 90′s thing, and thinking they are ridic-cool and could be accessorized to make them totally appropriate office wear. With a pair of wooly tights and a cardigan, I think they could be super cute. And admit it, you totally want a Bambi dress.

And leggings! Which I think would be super cute for sleeping in or wearing while working out.

I think poor Ursula should have her own dress! I think the key is all in what you pair this shiz with so you don’t end up looking like you raided your second grader’s wardrobe, or that you are celebrating Halloween early, but I think this stuff is cool. The best part about all of it is that the pieces are all super cheap! With the dresses under 40 bucks and the leggings running a mere 22 bucks, these aren’t huge investment pieces or anything. I’d wear them, but only because I’m goofy and they would totally amuse my kid to no end. Plus, when she gets bigger I could give them to her.

      Except hipsters wouldn’t be caught dead at Hot Topic.

      I’m having ’90s flashbacks just looking at those dresses. I think I’ll go home and stare wistfully at my box of neon pink fishnet shirts and Lip Service dresses when I get home.
