OOTD :: of beauty, beast and books




My favorite Disney princess is Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

I am definitely not a Disney person – my American animation tastes lean more toward Pixar – but if compelled to showcase one for Cartoon week, I’d have to admit to having an affinity for Belle.

Because this:

and the fact that she’s got dark hair and an indefatigable go-getter personality and a penchant for blue. Sound like anyone you know?

So yeah. This dress from eShakti – all $5 of it after multiple gift certificates and coupon codes – is all kinds of Belle goodness. Just look at that fit and flare construction! That modest neckline that allows for a crisp white button up underlayer! The pockets! Swoon!

And I don’t even need a princely beast to make my life complete. Just gimme more books!

    I am not a big Disney fan but you are a fabulous Belle-inspired model today. That’s a great dress (and price!) xo

  4. That’s some fantastic casual cosplay right there. ❤ I love Disney, and Belle is my favorite too, but I bet you knew that already. 😀
    When I was younger, multiple people said I looked like Snow White, and my little girl totally looks like post haircut Rapunzel.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
