The Like Mother Like Daughter Challenge

Dear Readers,
I apologize for the lack of posting. The end of the school year was crazy. Don't get me wrong, it was great being with friends and celebrating graduation, but it was crazy nonetheless! I will be making up to you with multiple posts this week.

Here we go.

Drumroll please! bdddddddddddddddd!

Ariel's precious daughter Melody. She follows in her mother's footsteps by over stepping boundaries and disobeying. Thankfully she, like Ariel, learns her lesson.

The Character: Melody

The Outfit: Cream colored blouse from Ann Taylor 2011
                   Coral capris from Ann Taylor 2009
                   Blue vest/shrug thing from New York and Company 2011
                   Gold sandals from New York and Company 2011
                   Gold headband from Kyleigh 2010

The Disneybound Inspiration:

I'm sorry for taking such a long break. Don't worry. I will be back full swing from this post on.

Love & Sparkles*

The Pale Challenge

To be honest, this movie frightened me and I never really appreciated the story. The redeeming quality...the colors.

Drumroll please! bddddddddd!

The ivory Snow White. I had many people that know about our challenge guess who I was. I also had people that had no idea about our challenge remark that I looked like Snow White. I couldn't decide if that were a good thing or not. I felt a little costumey, but I do love this outfit. I do not, however, love the movie Snow White. The Huntsman and the witch S-C-A-R-E-D me to death. I will say that Snow's prince is very gentile and chivalrous, and her friends are also to be admired for their devotion. I think I need to watch it again...

The Character: Snow White

The Outfit: Blue top from mom's closet 2011
                   Yellow skirt from Goodwill 2011
                   Red belt from my mom from 1990s
                   Red flats from Target 2008
                   Pearl headband from Kohl's 2011

The Disneybound Inspiration:

There is nothing like wearing all of the primary colors in one outfit. You should try it sometime.

The Persian Challenge

I LOVE this princess! When I was little I had a necklace with her on it, which I wore proudly in my preschool picture day photo. I had a wind up toy of her pet that went to Yemen with us. I love this girl. There was a time when I would watch her over and over and over. Thankfully, my mom intervened and the tape mysteriously "went missing" for some time. I needed that intervention, but I have since then been allowed to watch her.

Drumroll please! bdddddddddddd!

Aladdin's one true beauty, Jasmine. She is intelligent, resourceful, beautiful, rides through the sky on a magic carpet, and has a pet tiger. For the most part, her life is glamorous lest we forget the period of time Jafar takes her captive. That is NO good! Have no fear, her Aladdin comes to her rescue. It's so sappy, but it is colorful, magical songs are sung, and Robin Williams is Genie! Way to go Disney!

The Character: Princess Jasmine

The Outfit: Turquoise dress from Holidays 2010
                  Gold shoes from Target 2011
                  Gold headband and earrings from Christmas 2011
                  Gold bracelet from Kyleigh's closet 2012

The Disneybound Inspiration:

This is me trying to pose like Jasmine...

Have a Persian-ific (colorful) Day!

The Dainty Challenge

I'm so sorry that I have not posted my first Leading Ladies outfit until now. The past week and a little bit have been crazy!

The little lady I portrayed is one of the preshy-est ones. Here is my version!

Any guesses? Here is a little hint. She is the daintiest woodland creature you will find!
Drum rolle please! bddddddddddddd!

She is Bambi's favorite. She is sweet little Faline! Please look at her lovely eyes! I think Bambi is very lucky to have her! Factoid- Bambi was always sad and frightening to me, but I LOVED all of the bright colors in the forrest. Colors will get me every single time!

The Character: Faline

The Outfit: Pink ruffle camp from New York & Company 2011
                   Oatmeal cardigan from Ann Taylor 2009
                   Khaki shorts from Target 2010
                   Gold sparkly Oxfords from DSW 2011
* I had on some cherry blossom earrings, but the wind got the better of them. They didn't blow out of my ears, but it was a little uncomfortable. The earrings were from Target 2009 in case you were wondering. :)

Disneybound Inspiration:

I wanted to embrace Faline that day. Here is my photo of daintiness.

I'm going insert a comical, but embarrassing to me story. I wore this outfit on a Tuesday which means I wore it during a Proclamation rehearsal. Please keep in mind that I had already been to my 8 o'clock class and around campus a little bit. You remember my friend Mr. C from here? Well, he stopped me during our 5 minute break asked if my sweater was inside out because a tag was showing on the side... I HAD BEEN WEARING IT INSIDE OUT ALL MORNING... I really shouldn't be embarrassed, but I felt like melting on the floor. I had been all around campus and seen several people! Don't get me wrong I am very thankful that he told me, but of course that happened. The day I try to be very dainty and it goes a little awry!

Before I end this post, I have one more thing to share. Isn't this picture adorable? I hope you think so!

Have a lovely/dainty day!

Love and Sparkles*
