Let’s throw it back to the blur that was the last 2 weeks of October. I got invited to attend the @thedisneybound
’s group outing to see The Nightmare Before Christmas performed live at the Hollywood Bowl. I’m a total closet bounder and hate the idea of “keeping up” with those that can afford a new outfit for every bound. So I took a dress I already had from @pinupgirlclothing
and decided to be Jack Skellington. I purchased the shirt from @forever21
prior to the outing as I’m always looking for cute shirts to wear under my PUG, and my look just easily came together. I really didn’t want to have a bat for a necklace because it’s just too literal. His bat is a bow tie. My bow tie is a ribbon tie.
Upon seeing the purse I had planned David abandoned his idea to be Lock and decided to be our Zero. He made himself the kaftan and assembled the look from clothes he had purchased for the season.
’s Sally bound never arrived in time and so @davidfordisney
made him this kaftan out of scrap fabric the day of and Jeff wore leggings and t-shirt he already had.
Going new places I always experience a lot of anxiety. All of the unknowns can feel overwhelming and the Hollywood Bowl proved to be a little confusing with lots of climbing. But wow that view nestled in the mountains!
The show was incredible. As a kid I had a Danny Elfman flute book that I used to play. I’ve always been obsessed with his scores and was the only kid I knew who listened to the Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands soundtracks. Catherine O’Hara was there too, and I grew up watching her on SCTV. She is one of the women who made me want to pursue comedy. I adore her!! And then Paul Reubens was there too. My PeeWee. The biggest influence on child Stephenie. My introduction to vintage style and a life long goal to become Ms Yvonne. It was an emotional night to say the least! I highly recommend going when it happens again next year!
Thank you @leslieakay
and everyone who put on this fabulous event!
