fashion friday: disney's pink dress

I decided to combine today's Fashion Friday post with my popular Disney Fashion posts. This time I stuck with the common theme of a pink dress that goes through many of the Disney princess movie plots. In Cinderella, Cinderella dons a pink dress (that her animal friends helped her make) when she makes her first attempt to go to the ball. It later gets torn by her step-sisters. In Sleeping Beauty, Aurora is often seen in a pink frock and in The Little Mermaid, Ariel wears a ballet-pink gown when she attends dinner with Prince Eric. (Remember...the fork...I mean, dinglehopper??)

Like the other posts I've done, I'll show a picture of the princess and then a modern outfit that she might wear that's reminiscent of the original.

Here's Cinderella in her pink dress a la Disney.

And here's the modern Cinderella pink dress. Let me just say that I was going for a subtle hint of bows...unlike Disney's version!

Next up is Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. Here she is in all her Disney-esque glory.

And here is the modern Aurora's pink dress.

And finally we have Ariel. (my favorite)

And her modern day adornment might look like this.

Oh, this makes me want to go out and get a pink dress now. 


  1. I love your Disney Fashion posts. So much fun! All the dresses you chose are great but the accessories are fantastic! Where did you find the crab necklace? It's adorable.

  2. Selah,
    I'm totally an accessories junkie when it comes to these outfits! The crab necklace is by Forzieri.

    Thanks for reading!

  3. I've looked at the blog that inspired your Disney posts and I much prefer yours (mostly because your accessories are so spot on). Have you considered moving away from the princesses and maybe doing some villainesses? I would love to see your take on Cruella De Vil!

  4. I would definitely consider that seeing as how I'm kind of running out of princesses. :)

  5. I love the crab necklace! And you should definitely move onto Disney Villians next- think of al the black you could use! haha but I love love love your Disney posts- it's making me want to go listen to all of the Disney songs I have on my ipod (don't tell, k?) P.S. Your brownies will be in the mail tomorrow!

  6. Excellent!

    Be on the lookout for a villianess post next week.

  7. I love the clutch purse for Princess Aurora, where is that from?

    The big question. Does the Dinglehopper fit in the purse?

  8. BatGirl,
    I'm sure the Dinglehopper would fit into the purse...I just made it larger for the picture. :)

    The clutch purse from Aurora's look is from Diane Von Furstenburg.

  9. Beautiful ensembles! I especially like the Ariel one.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
