On Thursday, Pj and I went to see Snow White and the Huntsman.
The movie was visually exquisite and it had every aspect of a classic fairytale. I adore Charlize Theron and thought she was the most evil fairytale villain I have ever seen. Pj and I both had our doubts about a pants and armor wearing princess but the costumes were amazing as well. Although it received some rough reviews on the acting front, we both liked it a lot! What is your favorite fairytale?
For our date night, my outfit was inspired by fairy tales and art deco style. Since theaters are chilly even in the summer, I brought my vintage fur trimmed cardigan along. My 30's style skirt was handmade by me.
Since as far back as I can remember, my mom had a pair of Lucite heels in the back of her closet- leftover from a Marilyn Monroe Halloween costume. Throughout my childhood, I'd dig into that closet to find those shoes so I could parade around the house like a real Cinderella.
I always wanted my own glass slippers. Mom's were great but after a while of listening to the Lucite on tile noise, I had to return them to the closet.
21 years later and my feet are a size 10 and wider from 2 pregnancies. I've searched for my own "glass slippers" for years but they are difficult to find in larger sizes. Finally while window shopping on Etsy, I found this beautiful pair of vintage Lucite shoes with rhinestones in the heel and everything from Olive You Vintage and had to make them mine. Like Cinderella says, dreams do come true!
See these things worn before.....
