HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE... to properly clean a crinoline that's come into contact with a sprinkling of churro sugar or a Dole Whip float? How much time will you put aside to properly fold your gloves, and your stockings, and to polish the bow-topped shoes you rocked at the spring 2017 Dapper Day at Disneyland Resort? Caring for our clothing, especially vintage togs that might need a little extra TLC, does take a few extra minutes, but those are minutes that many a Dapperist will gladly put in, the better to make sure their get-up shines the next time they wear it. And as long as we're on the topic of time, and how long it takes for things to happen, consider this slice of the calendar: The spring, sartorial-sweet outing just wrapped a few weeks back, but Dapper Day Fall 2017 is on the fall horizon, meaning that you won't be stowing that parasol or boater hat for too long. In fact, the organizers of the dress-up event, which is not affiliated with the theme park, just posted.
A HOTEL SPECIAL... for the resort properties in Anaheim, Florida, and Paris. If you're doing Dapper Day at any of those spots, and you'd like to stay close to the action, the better to keep your crinoline and gloves looking perfecto, best hook into what you need to do to score a great rate soon, as "(t)hese rates will sell out as always," advises a posting on Facebook. What's the date for Disneyland Resort? Why it is Sunday, Nov. 5, and the full Disneyland Hotel expo is on Nov. 4 and 5, which is, of course, but a few days after Halloween. Do note that Dapper Day is all about skirt-swirling, suit-snazzy style, and not costuming, so you'll need to pursue your Halloween outfit and your Dapper Day ensemble concurrently but separately. How soon will autumn be here? As fast as a cold draft of air from the Haunted Mansion, trust, so best unhand your crinoline and boater and book now.
