Disney Outfits - Cinderella Ballgown
I don't know about you guys but I love Disney!! I have seen all of the films so many times I could almost recite them in my sleep. So when I discovered Polyvore for the first time guess what I did, I set about creating outfits inspired by Disney characters. I then came across someone who was doing something similar on Polyvore, however I feel that mine are different as I've taken the character's personality into consideration, rather than just the colour scheme.
And with that little explanation out of the way, on with the first outfit!
So as you can see I kept to the colours of Cinderella's ball gown but it's not exactly what you'd first expect right? The dress is a classic powdery blue, definitely reminiscent of Cinderella's dress, however it's short and super feminine with the gathered bow/tie in the front. It almost reminds me of something a little girl would wear. To me Cinderella is one of the most naive princesses so the dress reflects this perfectly. I kept the jewellery pretty traditional, lots of diamonds with a few pearls. Again I think of Cinderella as one of the most naive and childlike of the princesses so with her jewellery I think she'd choose what she thinks she's supposed to wear to a ball like this, but it's not necessarily something she'd like. Now for the shoes. Did you know it's really hard to find a glass slipper on Polyvore? I found some transparent plastic shoes but to me they just looked cheap, so I opted for these lace covered, nude coloured shoes. Again these reflect Cinderella's inherently girly nature whilst also adding a sense of sophistication, or at least that's what she thinks. Well that's it for now! I hope you enjoyed this and there are a few more to come in the future! Feel free to add me on Polyvore!
