Modern Day Disney Princess

Modern Day Disney Princess | Only on Five Foot and Fabulous!

Confession: I’ve always wanted to be a Disney Princess. A small part of me still wants to quit school, head down to Florida, and be a princess. However, two things are stopping me: 1. I actually do want a big-girl adult job, and 2. I don’t reach the height requirement for a princess. Still salty about that last one, to be honest. Who says princesses can’t be 5’1?

Since I can’t actually be a Disney Princess and it’s highly unlikely that Prince Harry will break up with his girlfriend and marry me instead, I just have to live vicariously through Disney movies. I’ll sing along with the songs (I know many of them by heart), take quizzes to see which princess I am (usually Belle), and get excited each time a new remake is announced.

Is it just me, or does this dress totally look like something Cinderella would wear if the story took place today? It still has the femininity and blue hue that her dress had, but it has a little more spunk that’s perfect for a modern day princess!

I would also like to point out that this dress is definitely out of my usual realm of clothing. I can’t remember the last time I wore this color in something other than jeans. Although I like to keep within my 90’s-inspired aesthetic, I think it’s important to step outside of your comfort zone every once in awhile. The lovely people at Dia&Co agree! Dia&Co is a styling service for plus-size ladies, and they are in support of facing fashion fears! Although I’m not a plus-size person, I still support the idea of embracing something new and different!
