Disneybound is a blog run by Leslie, a fantastically visioned individual, who posts inspirational (to say the least) outfit ideas that are inspired from Disney characters. Due to a follower who challenged herself last year to Disneybound (v. the action of dressing up in a way that is inspired from something related to Disney) every day in March, this challenge was started and I’m taking it on! (:
Today, I’m Disneybounding as Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. To be very honest, this outfit was very difficult to pull together because of the pieces that I had manipulated to make it all come together that echoed something that was Esmeralda-like.
My white button down top is actually turned backwards with the top two to three buttons unbuttoned, so that I could make it more of an off-the-shoulder look. I think that it surprisingly works though! What do you think? Moving down the outfit, the turquoise belt/band around my waist is actually a strapless dress that I’ve folded in itself to make smaller, so that it cinches my waist. And……the purple part of my skirt is actually a cardigan! I slipped a gold skinny belt through the sleeves and wrapped it around my waist so that it would drape down and serve as a second layer to my maroon colored skirt.
Rearranging pieces from your closet is actually a very fun experience. Even if it feels awkward in the moment, you certainly can arrange it so that you’re comfortable and if not? It’s always good to ease into things and start with maybe wrapping a cardigan into something else, or folding in a strapless versatile basic dress into a skirt or a thick belt. Giving closet pieces another role certainly opens up a lot of other opportunities for creative outlets as well as other outfits! (:
Thanks for reading! (: Smile today! (:
