As Moana undergoes a voyage to Te Fiti in an expedition to find herself and save her island, the fabulous Anna and Red has already crafted an inspired bow to emulate the Polynesian heroine’s fiery spirit. I sported the adorable hair accessory to a showing on opening day at Disney Springs, with guests already clamoring to discover where I had found it. From my recent trips to the Polynesian Resort and Disney World Parks, I noticed a limited selection of official Moana merchandise, which only makes Anna and Red’s newly released bow even more exciting.
I was so thrilled to have received the piece before the movie even premiered, thanks
to Anna and Red’s perfect timing. And as with every purchase from her store, I opened up the package to see an adorable holiday surprise waiting for me. Christmas is not only my favorite time of year in general, but my favorite time of the year to visit the Parks. The dream lights covering the castle in glitter, Mickey-shaped wreaths, and snowfall on Main Street USA make everyday in the Magic Kingdom a delight. The only things that could make the holidays even better are festive sweaters and tiny Disney bows from Anna and Red.
Disney’s newly released film captured everything good and beautiful about life, with a daughter of the chief who represents both women of color, and women who are still shaping their identities along the path in which they are journeying. With such an inspiring role model taking the big screen in theaters everywhere, Anna and Red’s Moana bow is the most fitting keepsake that I wear constantly to remind me of the courage Moana taught me. The colors of the product are absolutely gorgeous, and the tiny flower Ms. Ada places on the top of each bow intertwines a tropical, bright Moana vibe with the professional quality.
I have grown so attached to Ms. Ada’s work because she continues to offer her customers with new creations that are even cuter than those before them. Anna and Red has also recently welcomed an Elena of Avalor inspired bow, which recreates the authenticity of her coronation gown. Ms. Ada’s designs are completely unique to Anna and Red, and emanate a level of polished neatness that is unparalleled by manufactured bows that lack the same handmade magic.
In the spirit of goodwill and cheer this season brings, Anna and Red and I have again paired up to deliver a special holiday gift. Use the promotion code “JulietTheFirstHH” on your order of $15 or more for $5 off your purchase before December 21st! You can pick out the perfect bow for you and your loved ones via Anna and Red’s Etsy shop. Her bowtique is the most enchanting place to find stocking stuffers for any Disney princess this Christmas. Perhaps even Moana will venture beyond Montunui’s reef again to place an order for her village.
