So how does it work? Each week, a new character from a film with some frilly touches will be chosen and a coordinate relating to that character will be posted. Each post will include details on how you can achieve a similar look yourself (even without the specific items).
But who will be the first to be featured of this series? Well, if you have seen the new header, you might notice a little pink girl in the left hand side. That girl is non-other than Princess Irene from The Princess and the Goblin (1992).
Princess Irene isn't a very well known character among those of the modern fairy tale lovers. Though everyone knows of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, Irene is a royal lady of grace, who only happens to be of a mere tween age. What I appreciate of her character is that of her good nature soul, but the obvious features of someone that is in many ways still learning of everything in life. But she definitely knows how to take charge in times of trouble, even if she is frightened. Fighting Goblin royalty can be tough, and looking pretty while doing it is a hard task too for any princess.
So what should you wear to capture the elegance of this princess? Here is a little coordinate idea I came up! Most of the items are from Baby The Stars Shine Bright or off-brand.
The first thing to remember with Irene is that she mostly wears different shades of pink, sometimes royal blue or cream with gold trim. Though pink is not such a hard task for any sweet lolita fan out there, the trick with Irene is to keep it elegant and toned down. Hence why I chose a slightly more tame piece such as Pocket Embroidery by Baby, with a slightly high-necked princess sleeve blouse from the brand as well.
Another thing to keep in mind is the jewel headdress that Irene wears is very essential. Small pendents of any kind are very important to her highness, so always have a bit of shine to your outfit. You could have a pearl headband, a jewel encrusted headbow or even make a jewel headdress like Irene yourself! I though happen to love the bow from Baby, which is decorated in pearls and lace all over in the most delicious of ways!
Comfortable understated ballet flats or kitten heels are best for Irene to stomp on the feet of the Goblins! I chose a pair from Baby that seemed like the most fancy of shoes Irene would wear, but even the most simple shoes from Urban Outfitters would do as well.
The key words to keep in mind are regal and active! That way you can save the kingdom from the royal monsters and still look your magnificent best.
Overall, Irene is a great fashion idol to look too when needing something to make you adventurous. If you are interested in checking out The Princess and the Goblin, here is a trailer which should have some online video viewing options with it. It is also available on DVD on Amazon and other online shops!
Hope you like the new series. Let me know if there are any characters your interested in seeing in future posts.
