The Fairytale Dress
As a little girl I watched plenty of old Hollywood movies where the main actress would wear these stunning, flowy dresses that captivated the room and dance around a stage floor with some suitor. I was soon mesmerized by the feminine aspects of their clothes—the ruffles, the A-line cut, the tulle and the silk....I loved all of it! That’s why I adore this dress so much. It reminds me of those old musicals and show tunes where the castle was a jazzy night tropical night club and the Prince Charming was a skilled dance partner. How I long for those days!
If you’re looking for a dress to wear to an upcoming summer wedding or special occasion, this is it. I think we all silently yearn for those dresses that make us feel like royalty (minus the crazy rules!).
The pleats on this dress are really what make it stand out...that and the cotton-candy-sky colors! The movement it has is so graceful and makes you feel like you’re floating down the stairs.My shoes in this look are also on sale, so I’ve linked them below!
Worried about the fit? I wear a size 0 or 2 usually, and I ordered this dress in a 2 since ASOS sizes tend to run a little snug. The straps are not adjustable, so keep that in mind! Scroll down to see more pictures of this dress in action. There’s a particular “Cinderella” moment I had that is just so dreamy!!
