Saying goodbye to the Great Movie Ride in style

This weekend brought the end of an era at Disney’s Hollywood Studios; the Great Movie Ride closed it’s doors for the last time on Sunday evening. It’s hard to put into words how significant this ride has been for me. In my most formative years, it was a large contributing factor to my love of movies and my eventual and giant love affair with Alien. How do you sum up a ride beloved by so many? I honestly don’t think you can, so I’ll stop. Let’s just focus on my coping mechanism; a good outfit.

My xenomorph costume was at the dry cleaners so I thought I’d pay homage to another favorite scene of mine instead.

Shirt

Fortune and Glory is definitely in the top ten Indy quotes of all time and when I saw this tee at Disney years ago, I had to have it. Through my internet searchings it looks like its long gone, however TeeFury always has some neat Indy designs up.

Skirt

This greenish-grey skater skirt with a waist of black pleather at the top was found on one of my thrifting adventures. Anything in the brown/tan/grey family would work with this sort of outfit.

Shoes

To pick up on the yellow in the shirt’s lettering, I threw on some solid yellow flats from Brit Footwear. These similar ones are available on Amazon.

Hat

I snagged this very Indy-esque suede hat at a Forever 21. Or you could just get an actual one here.

Accessories

My gold necklace is from Target. Gold just seemed right with this outfit.

My bag is from Ross. (And was only $20!)

Fare thee well, you beautiful ride. At least we could say goodbye in style. (and with excellent pictures taken by my good friend Britt Barnim!)
