Disney Style on a Budget: One “Her Universe” Halloween Tee, Three Outfits

I am telling you – the Halloween merch game gets better and better for apparel every year. And this year, Her Universe is bringing the fire! I was recently gifted this adorable Disney Halloween Stripe Collar Crop Top (it comes in Plus sizes HERE), and I couldn’t help but to style it in three different ways!

I am all about giving you the best style advice on how to turn one piece in to many outfits. Especially when you are styling on a budget, because you need to make your purchases count. But it can be tough to do that when it feels like one specific piece can only be styled one way. That can sometimes feel like it’s a waste of money. So hopefully by styling this Her Universe crop top three different ways, you can get some ideas on how to keep wearing it all spooky season long!

I should also note that all of these outfits were put together using items that I already had. Nothing additional was purchased to make this happen! So I encourage you to shop in your own closet first before spending more money on putting an outfit together. But let’s get to styling this cute Disney Halloween tee!

All Black – Simple and Spooky

I styled this striped top by first tying it up just a little bit. Second, I paired it with an all black, pleated skit. I thought about wearing fishnets stockings, but opted to wear knee high black socks instead. Lastly, I wore a pair of my favorite black wedges and voila!

Accent Colors – Ready to Show Halloween Spirit

If I’m being honest, this second outfit is my absolute favorite! I wore the shirt normally with a pair of black high-waisted pants. I then decided to pair it with a cute orange crossbody bag. And lastly, I paired it with my electric purple heels! I have had these heels for years and they are still one of my favorites. There aren’t a lot of opportunities to wear them, but why not wear them during Halloween time, right?

Located in a bright, fall setting, I am showing how to style this crop top from Her Universe for the Halloween season. I matched the colors of the stripes in the shirt to my outfit. I am wearing a pair of black high-waisted pants, an orange crossbody bag, and a pair of electric purple heels. I am posing on a bench so you can easily see the entire outfit.

Posing on a sidewalk in fall, I am showing how the whole outfit came together. The crop top has a white collar, and black, purple, and orange stripes. The orange in the shirt was matched to the bag I have. And the purple of the shirt was matched to my heels. Both of these two pops of color really help to show that the crop top is the center of attention!

Seasonal Colors – Time to “Fall” in Love

With Halloween being in Fall, might as well dress for the season! This outfit is inspired by some of my favorite fall colors. I wore the crop top with just the top button buttoned, a brown cami, and a pair of army green skinny jeans. And every fall season calls for a pair of comfortable booties, so I styled this outfit with my favorite pair.

October is for Halloween - but it's also for fall colors too. So why not combine them both with this outfit featuring the striped crop top from Her Universe! I styled the shirt by only leaving the top button buttoned, a brown cami underneath, and a pair of army green skinny jeans. For a final touch of fall, I styled it with my favorite pair of brown booties.

My white Chanel bag also helps the white collar pop too which makes you notice just how cute the Mickey Halloween pumpkins are on the embroidery!

Feeling a little sassy in my fall outfit with my Halloween crop top to really make the whole outfit pop! In this pose, you can see how the outfit flows together, how the shirt moves off of my side ad back, and how great these skinny jeans fit the fall aesthetic in this park.

I am loving everything about these outfits and I get more and more excited about Halloween with every new product announcement. Which is shocking because I didn’t used to like Halloween or it’s general color aesthetic before. But it turns out that I had to fall in love with a different kind of Halloween. Before, I used to think that Halloween was only for people who liked scary, spooky things. However, we know now that there is the spooky side and the spoopy side! I prefer the side of Halloween that’s more about cute ways to decorate your house, the fun things small shops are putting out, or even just the cute apparel that places like Her Universe are dropping.

This Disney Halloween Stripe Collar Crop Top was so much fun to style and I can’t wait to find more Disney Halloween products that I love too.

I hope this has given you some inspiration on how to style your own outfits, or has even made you hit that “Add to Cart” button on this Striped Crop Top. Here’s to more happily haunted outfits!

Disney Bounding can be expensive, but not if you are smart about budgeting your wardrobe. This guide will help you style three different Disney characters with just one solid royal blue jumpsuit.

Disney Bound on a Budget: One Blue Jumpsuit, Three Disney Bounds Outfits

Disney Bounding can be quite the expensive hobby. Even for someone like me who regularly shops for new outfits at thrift stores or PoshMark, it still adds up. But I’ll go over how just one blue jumpsuit can be transformed into three different characters for Disney Bounding outfits! blue Disney Bound outfit

You will still need some accent pieces to pull off the look to make sure people know who you are trying to convey. However, this is a great lesson in reusing items to continue bringing a fresh look to your Park days, your style gallery, or your social media! I also gave some great tips on How to Disney Bound on a Budget in my past blog, and one of the biggest ways to save is to not spend!

I should also note that when I bought this jumpsuit off of PoshMark, I honestly thought that I would wear it once and never use it again. But I quickly found that blue is such a common color for so many awesome characters!

Yess from Wreck it Ralph two is such a fashion icon. And with just one blue jumpsuit, a fluffy jacket, and some heart accents, you can make a simple Disney Bound a strong outfit!

Disney Bound #1: Yess from Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet

I originally bought this blue outfit for a Yess Disney Bound, and similar to the big blue floofy jacket, I didn’t think it would find anything other use for it. I paired the outfit with a red Harvey’s bag with some heart bag charms and a pair of heart-shaped blue glasses.

Jacket: Poshmark

Blue Heart Sunglasses: Amazon

Red Fuzzy Bag Chains: Amazon

Red Harvey’s Bag: Poshmark

A simple Captain Marvel Disney Bound is possible with just a red jacket, a blue jumpsuit, and some gold accents to your outfit. I decided to add a few superhero effects to my picture on my hands and feet to make it look like I am flying through space.

Disney Bound #2: Captain Marvel

A simple approach to such an iconic female Marvel character! I put on my red leather jacket, a pair of gold wedges, and a gold necklace. Doing a Disney Bound that has as much flare as her suit would have been near impossible, but just imagine me living my best life walking around Avengers Campus!

Red Leather Jacket: Thrift Store

Gold Necklace: Thrift Store

Gold Wedge Heels: Poshmark

Sadness from Inside Out is probably one of the easiest Disney Bounds to put together. A simple blue jumpsuit outfit, a sweater, and you're done!

Disney Bound #3: Sadness from Inside Out

It’s pretty difficult to find blue pants that aren’t just a pair of blue jeans. Solution: Use a blue jumpsuit and just pop a comfy sweater on over it and BAM! Now you are rocking one comfy Sadness Disney Bound! Honestly though, this was an extremely comfortable outfit and I would have no problem rocking it for a day lounging at home.

White Knit Sweater: Thrift Store

One simple purchase of a blue jumpsuit outfit turned into so many cute Disney Bounds. And I’m sure the list could continue with even more! Do you have any other Disney Bounding suggestions or any questions on how you can put something together? Drop your comments below!

How to Disney Bound on a Budget

As you know from one of my other Disney Bound blogs, Six Reasons Why You Should NEVER Clear Your Closet Out If You Want To Disney Bound, it is extremely important to never get rid of what’s in your closet because Disney Bounding is a pretty expensive hobby! So how do you make sure you can still keep your Disney Bounds fresh, frequent, and cute but not break the bank?

I won’t drag this out any longer – shopping at thrift stores, on the Poshmark app, and on Shein!

I grew up bouncing from thrift store to thrift store with my mom. The long hours, the disorganized atmosphere, and that weird smell that they all seemed to have all gave me the impression that thrift stores are, in all matters of the word, “icky”.

Years passed, social media grew, and I started to see all these people finding just absolutely adorable Disney finds by shopping at thrift stores! Not to mention, finding pieces that seemed way too new to be found at a thrift store! So last year I took the chance at braving the storm and decided to go back to a thrift store after years of avoiding it and what I found was shocking.

I was preparing myself for the worst – the chaotic aisles, the clothes thrown on the floor, and of course, the old-lady smell. But what I found was a complete 180. Oh. My. Gosh. New floors, actual aisles and sections, everything was color coordinated! AND NO WEIRD SMELL!

Since then, I have frequented thrift stores as my go-to for finding those pieces that make all new Disney Bounds with ease! The bill has always been so cheap and the quality has actually been shockingly good. I guess you can thank fast-fashion for that! Because that fashion sure turns up in thrift stores pretty darn fast!! For those in the San Diego area, my absolute favorite thrift store is Valley Thrift Store. I can’t tell you how many things I have found there, including actual Disney Parks products! Sometimes I shop for Bounds and sometimes I just buy things because they are awesome Disney items.

I think one of the biggest things you need to remember while thrift store shopping is to not go in with one specific idea of what you want or need. It’s good to have direction, but it isn’t a good idea to have one exact thing you want otherwise you will walk out disappointed.

The other big thing I think you need to remember while shopping is to remember that you don’t HAVE to shop! What I mean by that is to remember what you have in your own closet at home! There’s no need to waste money on something you can easily incorporate into your outfit that you already have.

Below I have attached some pictures of my content that would not be possible without thrifting!

Olaf from Frozen
Not necessarily a Bound, but a perfect example of finding cool Disney merch!

Now, if you can’t find any thrift store finds that suit you or don’t have ones near you, then I highly recommend getting addicted to Poshmark like I have. Through this site, I was able to find the types of pieces that I wasn’t able to find while shopping and scored an incredible deal on them. An example being this super cute plaid shirt that had the front laced that I wanted to wear for a Dark Side look around Galaxy’s Edge.  I would like to think that the majority of Poshmark listings are pretty much shopping thousands of thrift stores in an online setting. Not to mention, I can make some side money selling the pieces that I have grown out of or don’t have a need for anymore. {If you want to jumpstart your own closet, use my code DONNA_FAABORG when signing up for a new account and you will receive $10 to spend on the app!}

Here’s some examples of pieces I have found on Poshmark:

Yesss from Wreck It Ralph 2
Stormtrooper in Galaxy’s Edge
A general Star Wars Dark Side look

Lastly, Shein is an online store that has a huge library of great finds for Disney Bounds. The prices are usually pretty low and there are pages and pages of pieces to explore. The only downside is that some of the item are pretty hit or miss in terms of fit and quality. I really only shop on Shein for more specific things I am trying to find for my Disney Bounds. Below I have attached some pictures of outfits that were put together solely from Shein: (shop these looks by clicking the picture or following me on LikeToKnow.It)

Slave Jasmine from Aladdin
Rapunzel from Tangled and “Legally Blonde” crossover
Ahsoka Tano from the Clone Wars animated series

Overall I am coming to realize that I never ever, ever should have given away any of my old clothes because I probably got rid of so many great things that I could have used for future Disney Bounds! So as much as your boyfriends or husbands or significant others may beg and plead for you to empty your closet, just let them know that by cleaning it, that just means you have to spend more to create other beautiful outfits. Don’t let them bully you 😉

I hope if you had a similar opinion about thrift stores that this blog will help you give it a second chance to blow you away. Start shopping and get to creating beautiful outfits! And I can’t wait to keep adding to this topic because I have so many new Disney Bounds that I cannot wait for you to see!

Six Reasons Why You Should NEVER Clear Your Closet Out If You Want To Disney Bound

This is for anyone that is being told by their significant other that they need to downsize their closet. I’m telling you right now to stop listening to them. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. Here are the reasons why you should definitely not do that if you are an avid Disney Bounder.

Disney Bounding is a way to dress as and personify a certain character by using everyday wardrobe pieces! The reason this trend started is because adults are not allowed to wear costumes inside Disney parks. However, many people still wanted to “dress-up”. It’s a genius way to work around the rule, and it gets people to get creative with how to put together outfits!

This has quickly become one of the biggest trends in the Disney community as women and men go shopping with a whole new imagination. Plus you can Disney Bound in casual wear or even in formal wear! Not to mention, you can always find at least one person in the park Disney Bounding!! So next time you walk around the park and think to yourself “Oh they kind of look like Rapunzel and Flynn Rider”, odds are they are rocking the heck out of their Disney Bounds!

So let’s get to it already, why shouldn’t you get rid of items from your wardrobe?

I put together a Loki Disney Bound with a green blazer, brown cami, and plack pants. An elevator at a hotel I was staying at provided a perfect crystalized looking golden elevator. I added in some green and black smoke effects to the picture borders.

1. Disney Bounding is an expensive hobby.

By purchasing items that may only work for one character, the shopping bill adds up. Which is why it’s imperative that you don’t get rid of items that could be reused for another picture! For example, this green blazer I bought for a Loki Bound is something I didn’t think I would wear again. But I actually found so much use for it for a Slytherin outfit and countless holiday outfits! Also what if you took a picture of your Aladdin Disney Bound in the parks with Aladdin himself, but now you think it would also be cool to take it on a vacation where you might be visiting some sand dunes? Boom! You get two awesome pictures for the price of keeping one whole outfit.

Perfect example of reusing items you own for Disney Bounds (or Harry Potter outfits!). I am reusing my green blazer from my Loki outfit to create a Slytherin look with the rest of the outfit in all black. Standing out front of a building in Boston that looks like Gringotts.
This green blazer is definitely becoming a go-to for me!

2. Every new Disney movie is an opportunity to see new characters and make new Bounds.

We have no idea what new characters we will fall in love with in the future and who knows? That one cardigan you donated a month ago would have been PERFECT for that new character! If only you didn’t get rid of it….. And this also applies to OLD shows too! When was the last time you watched That’s So Raven or Even Stevens? It’s possible to get inspired by one of their outfits to do a throwback look!

3. The more you get involved with Bounding, the easier it will be to come up with new ideas!

Bounding, like any hobby we might have, will only become easier to do with more time and practice with putting together outfits! Inspiration will come easier and new outfits can start appearing out of pieces that we have had in our closets for a long time. So now that one t-shirt and colored pair of pants that you have been hesitant on getting rid of can now be used together for a whole new look that your friends or followers will be sure to recognize!

4. It hurts zero people’s wallet to keep clothes you’ve already purchased.

Ok this reason might be Hoarder 101, but inspiration can come whenever. You don’t want to possibly have to buy something to make the perfect Disney Bound when you already had the perfect thing, but you got rid of it. I can’t tell you how many times I said I would only use something I bought once, but easily found other times to wear it. For example, the outfit I used for Ahsoka Tano (striped blue jeans and a neon orange crop top) is something I never thought I would wear for anything else. Rightfully so – it’s a little outrageous! However, one of my followers pointed out that it would also be a perfect outfit for a Lizzie McGuire Bound of Kate or Miranda when they wore the same outfit!! WHAT!

A .gif from Lizzie McGuire when both Miranda and Kate showed up in the same outfit. Their outfit happens to look very similar to my Ahsoka Tano Disney Bound and I could reuse that entire outfit to Bound as one of them!
How perfect is it compared to what I was using for Ahsoka Tano?

5. A new relationship is new opportunities for couple Bounds!

Yes, maybe you did a beautiful Ariel Bound, but now you’ve found yourself a Prince Eric and you want him to look the part! (Lucky for your guy, Prince Eric is pretty dang easy for a guy that only owns jeans and plain white t-shirts. Add a red accent piece and his outfit is complete.) So now you can Bound with him for some cute pictures to show everyone just how handsome and supportive he is of how big your closet is! Don’t get rid of your clothes if there is a significant other or best friend that you could easily Bound with and make some cute as frick content.

My Elsa inspired look is not so much a Bound as it is just a regular outfit that I edited to have Olaf and snowflakes in it to give a Frozen aesthetic. My sweatshirt is knit and the design looks like the crystals from Frozen 2.
Taking the Bound in a more conceptual manner!

6. Mix and match to success!

There is nothing better than buying a shirt for one character and a pair of pants for another character and finding that the two together make a completely other character. What’s even better than that is using a piece from your closet that you already had because you thought it was cute and now you can use it for a Bound! That will help reduce the cost of a future Bound if you only need to buy one new piece to complete a look than buy a whole new outfit. Even for this Elsa Bound I did, I have had that sweater for about six years. It only dawned on me to use it for a Bound maybe a week ago. Behind the times? Of course. Totally worked for the post? DUH!

Now I know this next thing is not what you want to hear, but there is one exception to this rule of not getting rid of things in your closet. When clothes don’t fit. This is the absolute only way my boyfriend will ever get me to get rid of my clothes. Other than that, I just get kind of creative as to where I put my clothes.

If you are indeed running out of closet space, what I do is cycle my clothes in and out based on season. If I have a skirt that is great for a Rapunzel Bound but I can’t wear it during the cold seasons, then I can cycle it out for the season. It doesn’t need to be in my immediate closet! I can easily pack into a box with other spring or summer items, and put it into a hallway closet or the top shelving of my bedroom’s closet and revisit the box in the next season. Out of sight and off of a hanger, but never far enough away where you can’t get to it if inspiration strikes!

Any way you slice it, keeping your clothes will only help your wallet! Not to mention it will also help you continue to make amazing outfits that other Disney fans will adore!
