Cinderella

One of my earliest memories is of Cinderella. When I was little my Grandma would often mind me while my Mum and Dad were at work, and sometimes - if I was lucky - I'd get to spend the weekend there too. It was the weekends I looked forward to the most. My grandma knew my favourite movie was Walt Disney's Cinderella, but she'd only rent it from the VHS shop as a special treat for the weekend. My love for the film has stayed with me (and yes I've seen the live action remake and it's wonderful).

When I pulled this outfit together I couldn't help feeling it was pulling more from the 'Drizella' colour palette than Cinderella's. Then when we were shooting this post the BEST thing happened. 

This path is one of my favourite routes to walk and it's usually fairly deserted. However, I'd forgotten about the Easter Hols. We were soon passed by a family of 8 (including a muddy and excitable dog). There were two little girls (about the age I was when I discovered Cinderella) with their Dad at the back of the procession...

"Go on just ask her."
"No don't Dad"
"Just ask, she won't mind."
"Don't it's embarrassing."
"Excuse me, the girls would like to know if you're Cinderella?"

I should have been cooler about it. I really should have been. But that family totally made my week.

  1. What a sweet story! Though I'm not personally into any of the Disney characters, I love to bring out all the pretty and bright colours in my wardrobe in the spring/summer. It's still cold here in Norway, but I'll look like a colouring book come May!

  2. I love this story! It seems you made the little girls' day and they made yours. Win-win. Your outfit is beautiful as is the setting for the photos. I really like the bold color combo.
