“Fashions fade, style is eternal.”
— Yves Saint-Laurent
Growing up my two favorite Disney Princesses were Belle and Ariel. I loved that they went on adventures, fought the bad guys but still wore beautiful gowns. This is my modern take of Belle in a whimsical poof of a skirt with a form fitting bejeweled top. This dress would be perfect for a princess or a girl who just wants to be a princess for a day.
If you were to visit my apartment you would find a sea of nautical items. Growing up near the beach, it’s close to my heart. I don’t think I could ever go too far from water. There’s something about the smell and relaxing feeling I get by being near it that I could never give it up.
I incorporate a nautical theme into my wardrobe by picking items that are brightly colored with sea creatures or plants. This dress brings out the bright colored coral that dots the ocean floor. I paired it with a bright green to imitate the ocean and make the deep reds stronger.
