For some reason I really enjoy dressing up like cartoon mice.  According to blogger stats, the most common search term that brings readers to my blog is 'Minnie Mouse' (due to my previous MM ensemble).  There was no headband this time but there was red, white and polka dots, all very vintage Minerva (did you know that was her real name? I didn't until just now, thanks Wikipedia, I truly do learn a new thing every day!)

I wore this out last Saturday night to fellow Ottawa blogger A Fine Balance's wine & cheese party.  I am very happy to say that I stayed on my vegan diet, avoided the temptation of cheese and indulged in my homemade tofu cheesecake (which was super easy to make- melted dark chocolate chips blended with silken tofu and granulated sugar and then baked in a pre-made graham cracker crust- voila!)

Love bling as much as I do? Be sure to enter my Castellammare Designs jewellery giveaway!

    I love the combination of polka dots on your skirt and shoes,

    And funny enough, "peter pan" is one of the top search terms on my stat list.

  10. When we went to Florida this year I bought Minnie ears at Target to save some money before going to Disney World. At the park they were $20 but were so pretty! They had sequined ones and even one with a veil for would have loved it.

  11. very pretty outfit, inspired by minnie, dear emily! :) you said you stayed on your vegan diet, but you didn't say if the tofu cheesecake you made was any good. so, do you think you'll make it, or eat it again?
