Watch on to find out more about my personal experience as a cast member in merchandise at Walt Disney World.

I believe that the only thing that I forgot to mention (well briefly alluded to) in the video is merchantainment. Merchantainment means entertaining guests. You can do this while working the many functions of your role. I have gotten to do it much more so while I was in greeter role at my store, which I haven’t been doing as much lately.

While merchantaining you can generally chat with the guests, give out stickers or buttons or even play games with them. I’ve even asked children for their autographs “because Mickey asked me to do so”. Another small touch is asking for a guest’s “autograph” instead of their signature when they have to sign for a purchase. Those are the kind of small, yet fun personal touches that add to a guest’s experience. I’m pretty burnt out right now and forgot to mention them in the video. They are definitely worth knowing about though. I may do another video strictly about merchantaining in the future.

I haven’t worked World of Disney yet (due to the construction/traffic/parking issues currently happening in Downtown Disney, aka the soon to be Disney Springs). I do plan to one day though. I have worked the Emporium (the biggest store in Magic Kingdom).

Xhilaration faux leather bomber jacket-Target, Dream Out Loud by Selena Gomez sequin tank-Kmart, No nonsense jeggings-courtesy of No nonsense, Honor Bongo boots-Kmart

Last month was the premiere of my father’s TV ad. I wanted to look a bit nice but still casual. I also really wanted to wear some hot ass maroon boots but they have almost no traction and there was a shitload of snow on the ground. So, of course, I stuck with my trusty Kmart cowboy/motorcycle boots, instead.

straw cowgirl hat-Kmart, wooden bead necklace-gift from a friend, Converse plaid babydoll dress-thrifted, Hush Puppies denim & silver sandals-gift from a friend

A couple of weeks ago we had an unusually warm day so when we went out to eat I was able to wear this super cute Converse babydoll dress that I haven’t worn nearly enough. I was feeling happy and silly cuz my man was wearing his new Santa hat so I topped it off with a cowgirl hat that I bought at Kmart in 2011. I added a necklace and shoes and voila, a fun day!

How cute is he, really? Super, ah.

Well Halloween has been my favorite holiday from childhood through adulthood. Unfortunately almost 5 years ago October became an emotional land mine for me. My brother died about a week and a half before Halloween. Then last year my 11 year old dog died the week before Halloween. My dog was basically like a son to me.

So even though Halloween has and always will be full of fun activities like wearing costumes (my favorite, as you well know), horror movies, passing out candy and partying, October is now very depressing for me. This year the hurricane also cast a pall over everything.

Prior to Halloween I was able to dress up once, as Minnie Mouse, to attend a party at a local club. You can check out some cute couples’ costumes from that party here. Plus I was able to see the flick Frankenweenie with my man. It was good but also sad because of the aforementioned death of my dog. We also enjoyed some of my old favorites, Hocus Pocus and Once Bitten at various times.

Some things were out. Hayrides were either too expensive or at inopportune times (plus it was raining often, big surprise, rain is so obtrusive in PA). The party that I was hoping that we could both go to in costume ended up being a bust so we didn’t go. Plus though trick or treating wasn’t cancelled, no children showed up due to the Hurricane and cold.

However despite all of that and my having an appointment with a stranger on Halloween morning (you know how terrible that is with my severe social anxiety), I had an amazing Halloween day. I really wanted to cheer myself up and feel sexy for when my man came over. So I wore this. Usually when you see outfit photos I have worn them out of my house or at least with a group of family at my house during a holiday or gathering. However only my man (and now you, xd) have seen this. Yes, it’s similar to my Sandy outfit (link below) but I’d definitely say sexier.

In addition to dressing up in sex kitten mode, we also had more Halloween fun. We watched Casper and I introduced him to Army of Darkness (ah, Bruce Campbell). My man isn’t a big horror movie fan but he totally got into it. Who can resist Bruce Campbell’s one liners? Plus we ate some Halloween candy. Hey, the trick or treaters never turned up, someone’s gotta do it. We also enjoyed the Rob Zombie channel that we created on Pandora. It was truly a lovely, romantic day (as I not so elegantly captured in this tweet).

Albertus Swanepoel for Target Ganache Hat, pink pearls-Kmart, faux leather brown bomber jacket-Dots, Carol Anderson brown and white polka dot dress-thrifted, green pantyhose-Target, Rocket Dog heels-thrifted

As you’re aware I have a bit of a 90s fetish. So as of late I’d found myself ogling the cute, comfy looking shirtdresses sported by Bridget Fonda, Mary Stuart Masterson and the like while watching 90s flicks. So yes, I was on the look out for a shirtdress to add to my wardrobe. What I happened to come across was actually one that I believe is from the 80s that was trying to evoke the 50s. I loved it. And yes, it totally came from the local magical thrift shop where I score stuff like this super cheap.

As I mentioned in my Miracle-Gro post I’ve been wanting to do an OOTD in front of our garden. However I’ve been feeling run down and not even trying to dress in anything but tees and cargos lately. However at the end of April during a day that felt like fall I tried to improve my down in the dumps spirit/downtrodden body by wearing this and whatever other fun things that struck my fancy.

I paired my dress with some green tights I got at Target over the winter, adorable brown and green Rocket Dog heels, a faux leather jacket I got at Dots a while back, my pink pearls (cuz why not) and topped it with a cloche hat that I snagged at Target on sale. Yes, it was from that Albertus Swanepoel for Target collection that I was coveting last fall. I managed to score this one and the blue hat in my snow alien photo set (also from his collection) super cheap since people in this town don’t love hats like I do (clearance baby!).

I sort of felt like I was walking around from a different time period in this outfit but it definitely cheered me up, thus doing its job.
