Fashion Inspiration: Cinderella

I love, love, love Disney. All things Disney, in fact.

Disney music.

Disney movies.

Disney channel.

Disney parks.

Disney hotels.

Disney characters.

Disney service.

Disney food.

And, duh, Disney fashion! Seriously, some of the Disney princesses are the original fashionistas! Take Cinderella, for example.

The scene of the transformation, and this particular still of the dress dripping magic, always took my breath away. It's just so hopeful, so magical, so anything-can-happen.

I don't really know how to explain it, but it's that really full feeling in your chest where you want to cry and laugh and smile and sing and sob all at the same time. Disney does that - emotional heartstring player, much?

Anyway, melodrama aside, today's fashion procrastination inspiration is Cinderella! As always, this look is inspired by Cinderella's style - it's not meant to look like anything that she actually wears.

Flounced Open Back Dress, $22.80 Forever 21

Pearlescent & Rhinestone Studs, $3.80 Forever 21

Women's Chelsea Flat, $16.99 Payless Shoe Source

After the whole glass slipper debacle, I'd say Cinderella has probably learned her lesson about sensible footwear.

All in all, Cinderella's look comes to a total cost of $43.59. You don't need to spend like a princess to look like one!

But just to be absurd, and in case your budget resembles Cinderella's post-Prince Charming, check out this Cinderella-inspired chainsawed gown by Viktor and Rolf:

I'm not going to include a price, but let's just say that if you have any sort of budget at all (and it doesn't have the word 'unlimited' in front of it) this gown is better for just gushing over from your laptop.

What do you think of the Viktor and Rolf Gown?

Which Disney princess's style do YOU like the most?


  1. I love anything disney, you have to check out the disney wedding gown light, they are incredible!!

  2. I adore anything Disney,too,really - everything.
    My favorite princess has always been ARIEL,and it's also her style I love the most. So pure,so natural,yet super pretty and adorable. I especially like her blue & pink dress,ah,but the blue one a little bit more!
    I so want to have that blue dress you've just shown above,anyhow - it looks so beautiful!
