Fairytale Fashion Circa 2009

Oooh! Let´s engage in a little day dreaming and imagine what would happen if the heroines of our favorite Disney movies were young ladies, gadding about the city circa 2009!

 

Ariel

Things between Prince Eric and Ariel rapidly head south when he callously suggests a seafood buffet for their wedding. The nerve! Ariel is crushed that she can´t run home to her sisters, but finds solace in UCLA’s oceanography program. Her classmates are awed by her fantastic swimming abilities. That and the fact that she insists on combing her hair with a fork. 

BelleBelle
After a few years of pottering around the castle and constantly brushing Beasty Boy’s hair, Belle runs out of gowns to wear and songs to sing. She remembers fondly her days of bookwormery and announces to her mister that it’s high time she went back to school. In September, she joyfully begins her Master of Library Science. Mrs. Potts returns to her teapot state to accompany Belle to grad school and sees her through many cups of Earl Gray and revisions of her thesis.

Jasmine

Jasmine

After marrying into one of Dubai’s royal families, Jasmine spends a few months relishing her new new role as a tabloid fodder royal (“They’re like us! They eat falafel! They chastise their pet monkey for throwing poo!”). However, she quickly realizes that her previous life of singing on carpets and battling evil sorcerers has not prepared her to rule a country. So onwards and upwards: a BA in Public Policy with a minor in music. One can’t completely abandon singing on flying carpets.Who were your favorite fairy tale heroines? And what would they be like these days?

Loved this post! Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) has always been my favorite but I am not nearly imaginative enough at this time in the am to think of a good story for her.

Oh, dude, how cool are these? Ok, so I kindof suck at fashion, but I really wanna know: What would Minnie Mouse and Snow White wear?

I adore this post! I would love to hear about the other Disney princesses too! Mulan, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella!

This is fantastic! A few ideas that come to mind are Sleeping Beauty studying neuroscience and researching sleep disorders and Snow White becoming an activist and lobbying for the rights of little people.

This is a such an adorable post. My favorite disney princess was always Jasmine or Belle because they had pretty clothes.

i love this idea & these outfits…but, I have to say. While I adore Jasmine, nothing will ever convince me that those saggy crotch Bahama short things are attractive.
