The FOMO is real when you love Disney as much as I do, and also live in the Philippines. We don’t have a Disney park here, not even a Disney Store. Online shopping is also difficult. Even though Amazon, Etsy, and stores like Boxlunch Gifts deliver internationally, most of the time the shipping cost to Manila is larger than the cost of what you’re buying.
It can get pretty disheartening sometimes, but as I’ve discovered in my Disney style journey – there are options all around if you just go out and look. All it takes is faith, trust, and pixie dust. And a little resourcefulness wouldn’t hurt either.
Ever since I started making an extra effort to seek out Disney clothing, I also started to notice that I actually encounter at least one person a day wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt. I kid you not. It’s pretty amazing how far Disney’s reach is, that I see people of all ages wearing Disney every single day in my little corner of the world. It also made me wonder – where do people buy them?
So I did some research and decided to start another little monthly blog post for you. To help out my fellow Filipino Disney fans, as well as friends who are visiting Manila – I’m going to feature one brand that sells Disney apparel per month. And to keep things both accessible and affordable, I will style it in 5 different ways to show you how far one Disney item can go.
