One morning a few weeks ago, when these photos were taken, I felt an overwhelming desire to dress up in a Snow White inspired outfit. A number of people, both on my blog and in ‘real life’ have compared me to Snow White; a complement which I love and always makes me happy. The first time I was ever compared to Snow White was at my local shopping centre when I wore this outfit. Also, I’ve seen a couple of other bloggers creating outfits inspired by Disney Princesses; I thought this was very creative and wanted to give it a try myself. This look is part of a series I wanted to create over time of Disney Princess insspired looks. Once I was satisfied with my Snow White look, a myriad of ideas came to me; for Tinkerbell, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty inspired outfits. It was so much fun. Although pleased with the final result, I initially found Snow White difficult because I have never owned a yellow skirt. After much deliberation, I remembered this strapless yellow dress which I wore frequently last summer. It was one of my first yellow pieces, in an attempt to make me like yellow; this did eventually work, I am totally converted now. Once I had the base of a yellow skirt, the rest of the outfit easily came together. I realised that the essence of any Snow White inspired outfit is block primary colours; probably any combination of these colours would remind me of Snow White. I decided to remain true to form, opting for my only blue cardigan and red accessories. When I posted my chevron printed dress here, the red bag I paired with it was described by many as being an apple. This different dimension provided inspiration for my look too; such a unique accessory was just asking for the creation of a whole Snow White to go with it, surely? It would have been exciting to take these photos in a forest; very in character.
