disney's classic ladies: a modern take 2

Well, I'm back for another installment in the modern Disney fashion series. Last week we looked at the Queen Mouse, Miss Minnie.

Today, we'll take a look at a few outfits inspired by her best friend, and fellow Disney classic character Daisy Duck.

Now, Miss Daisy (not unlike this Daisy and this Daisy) is a feisty gal. She tends to have a sort of retro pin-up style vibe with her clothes, so that's the hint we're aiming for here. A touch of pin-up class.

Here we go!

For Daisy's first modern inspired outfit...
...she's stuck with her classic colors of purple/lavender and pink. The dress accents that 50s vibe without going over-the-top. She chose to use a bow accent on the pumps and went with a bit more of a classic jewelry look. Like Minnie, Daisy absolutely must use Maybelline's Great Lash mascara (it's an icon!) and a bright fuschia on her lips.

And for Daisy's other modern outfit...
...a bit more of a casual look that incorporates the lavender top that you most often see her in. A nice, pleated white skirt hides her tail fashionably and shows off her curves! Daisy chose a golden orange bag as an accent match, bill. (beak?) Daisy is unsure of whether she calls her mouth a bill or a beak. She should probably have wikipedia'd it before she posted this blog. Oh well. She'll blame Donald if it's wrong anyway. ;)

So there you go, friends! I'm taking suggestions for the next subject of the Disney modern fashion series. Shall I do another creature/animal? Let me know! Oh, and don't forget to enter my photo giveaway! Winner announced on Friday!


  1. Very nice. I'm pretty sure a duck has a bill rather than a beak. How about a fairy for your next Disney fashion post? The Blue Fairy from Pinocchio, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, or, of course, Tinker Bell.

  2. Love these two. Surely there are more villians out there that you haven't done yet?

  3. omgsh. this is amazing. i'd totally wear that second outfit too ;)

  4. Have you ever seen The Emperor's New Groove? Yzma is a fantastic Disney villainess. Right up there with Cruella.
    As far as the animal/creature characters go, not many of them wear clothing. All I can think of are Clarabel Cow and Maid Marion.

  5. Hmmm, I like the fairies idea. Of course, there are more villains to do as well. :)

    Selah, I've not seen TENG. BAHAHAHA, your statement about a lot of the characters not wearing clothing made me laugh. This is quite true, apparently.

  6. OOHH! You could do Flora, Fauna and Merryweather!

  7. TENG is hilarious! I highly recommend it.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
