Mickey Mouse True Original Festival Edit | #Mickey90

What a night! Last week, I got an email from someone at The Walt Disney Company inviting me to the Mickey Mouse True Original Festival Edit. "What's that?" I hear you say. I wasn't quite sure myself on what to expect, but it was such a great evening! The invite said 'an unmissable chance to immerse yourself in Mickey and Minnie's unique style'....sold. THIS IS ME ALL OVER! With Mickey celebrating his 90th Birthday this year, Disney are having a global celebration of his heritage, personality and status as a pop-culture icon, and we were invited to start the party!

The event was held downstairs inside a record store called Phonica Records, but it was so spacious and bright, my eyes lit up with excitement. There were areas to get Disney fake tattoos, Make Up with Spectrum, a bar, food from a festival 'van' and Minnie Mouse ear making. Not to mention how many photo opportunities there were too. In the middle was a great display of all the Disney collections you can find in stores including Primark, Uniqlo, H&M, Samsonite, Swarovski, Danielle Nicole, Funko Pop and so many more favourites. Check some of it out below!

The event quickly filled up, but it wasn't crowded. I saw so many familiar faces and got to meet some great new friends too. Special thank you to Adam and Gary, we had such a laugh. It's really nerve racking when you attend an event alone, but they were so welcoming and made the evening for me. Thanks guys, you're ace.

We had photos with Mickey and Minnie themselves (OHMYGOD SO AMAZING), which obviously was a huge deal because I've never met them outside the parks before, and never in their Original outfits together. Every character meet I've had with them has been semi-rushed in the parks, and I never get the opportunity to go back and get the right shots a few times. I vlogged with them, took a selfie and just had a huge smile across my face the whole time. It was a real 'pinch me' moment that I was at an event with Disney, and with so many lovely like-minded people.

We listened to a panel discussing how iconic Mickey and Minnie are and it's true! I can't explain my love for Disney, and it's amazing that it's such a huge part of our culture, and now our style too. As an adult, my fashion sense is evolving regularly, but I love having the opportunity to incorporate my passion into my style. Plus, don't get me started on bags, accessories, homeware...

It was a truly awesome night, check out my incredible goodie bag! Filled with so many things (PINS, PENS, EARS) and my first ever Danielle Nicole bag. In LOVE. I felt so proud to be in a room full of people who are just like me, and I met so many new pals. I can't wait for future events and to see what else Disney do for #Mickey90!
