there was a time when i would buy pretty much any piece of clothing that had a disney character on it, with the exception of especially saccharine pieces from theme parks and the like. as a result, friends and family began to snatch up disney memorabilia indiscriminately on my behalf, resulting in a collection consisting of a few gems and a whole lot of filler.
learning to incorporate my ongoing disney obsession into my wardrobe has forced me to calm my trigger finger, but when i wandered into funky fanny's at the brooklyn flea, i knew i'd found some kindred spirits. after snatching up a beauteous mickey cap, which is being reserved for an especially bright and sunny day this summer, i headed over to their online outpost, where they have an entire shopping section dedicated to the mouse. there, i found the mickey sweatshirt of my dreams, vaguely varsity-esque stripes, loose fit, and felt mickey appliqué and all. of course, it didn't hurt that it's the exact one that one of my major girl crushes happens to own.
