Fashion Inspiration: The Little Mermaid

You know I love Disney.

I mean, who doesn't? So today's fashion inspiration is Ariel, the Little Mermaid!

                           Little Mermaid portrait fail (3 pics)


She was my big sister's favorite Disney princess when we were younger!

Though she's a princess, Ariel seems pretty down-to-earth. I think she's the kind of girl that would appreciate a good sale, not the kind who needs labels and outfits worth the equivalent of small cars to look and feel good.

And considering her affinity for the beach, she's probably more into the casual look anyway.

MAC Red Lipstick, $14.50, M*A*C

The powerful red lip is crucial to pulling off the purple and green color combo with the right pop!


Carmel Tail Blouse, $33.60 ($48.00), Nasty Gal



Dreams Leather Bracelet - Silver, $14.99, Target

'Dreams become reality, one choice at a time' - not only a theme appropriate engraving, but a very true, and useful, reminder :)

Cuffed Sateen Short Green, $19.50 ($34.50), Delia's
Elnicki, $17.49 ($35.00), Aldo










This Little Mermaid look comes to a total cost of $100.80. Definitely not bad, considering that the price includes accessories, shoes, and make up!

Which Disney character do you want as my next fashion inspiration?


Did you ever want to be a mermaid when you were younger?


What are you wearing right now?

  2. I actually have that MAC red lipstick and I have yet to be able to apply it to look good. It's so sad-I really wish I could pull of red lipstick. I don't know if this is your realm of post ideas but a post about how to pull it off, may do me a world of help. ;)

    1. Make sure the red you get is the right tone for your skin - each red has an undertone (either a warm orange one, which works better with darker skin, or a blue one, which works better with pale skin). Since you're tan, but you're still not black, I'd go with something that's just about in the middle - someone at a makeup counter should be able to help you identify which shade that is! Or make this one work better by making the lipstick the focal point of your look - the only other noticeable makeup on your face should be mascara and maybe some black or brown eyeliner, and you don't want too many accessories (showy earrings, necklaces, hair accessories, etc.) around your face.

    1. Haha, no shame in still wanting to be a mermaid :) No Target in Germany?? Oh wow, you're right! That does suck! Aldi isn't quite the same...Maybe Target will expand internationally soon :) Your blond hair is quite pretty!

  6. The Mac lip color line is one of my faves, but I could never pull off a red lip stick. Belle from Beauty & the Beast has to be my all-time favorite Disney princess.

  11. Ahhh! This post just made my day! Ariel was (and still is) my favorite disney princess!
    Mac lipstick is amazing. I have a few different neutral shades but have been wanting to invest in something more bold, like red or pink. By the way, if you bring in 6 empty Mac makeup products, you get a free lipstick!
