Now, if Only I Could Find my Tiara!

Now, if Only I Could Find my Tiara!


embroidered scroll skirt


Yesterday I saw the movie Cinderella. I’m not a movie critic, but I really enjoyed it. The characters were beautiful, the scenery was beautiful, and the costumes were beautiful. On the other hand, one could argue that this movie is anti-feminist, and that in general, princess fairytales are disempowering to women. But, I don’t really want to engage in that conversation. Cinderella delivered exactly what I needed: an escape to a magical place for a few hours. And, I hate to admit it, but I had a little princess envy when I left the theater. To be clear, I don’t want to actually be a princess, I just want to wear princess dresses.

Fortunately,  I found this skirt at Ann Taylor, and it’s rather”princessesque.” It’s very flattering, flowy, and twirls nicely when you spin. I’ve paired it with a  rather tailored top, but I think it’d be smashing with a feminine fitted sweater. Wouldn’t a tiara complete this look nicely?
