A Vintage Cinderella
I had so many options for colors today, but as soon as I thought of a character I knew I had to do Cinderella. As you’ll see, these character-inspired outfits won’t be full-on cosplays, but rather outfits that take a color or overall vibe the character has, and make that my own thing. I completely messed up yesterday and forgot that my character was supposed to start with a B as well, but it’s okay! I’m already planning tomorrow’s character, although I’m not sure if I’ll be able to figure out how to style it.
Today, I finally filmed a sort of quick and dirty vintage hair tutorial. I’m still figuring out how to best film (and instruct) these videos, so it’s not perfect, but it’s a start! I had a lot of fun showing how I do my hair when I only have 15-20 minutes to spare. It’s totally possible to achieve a vintage style in a short amount of time, if you lower your expectations a little and just let your hair curl where it wants to curl.
While I don’t have any glass slippers, I thought these silver glitter heels were the perfect stand-in! When in doubt, wear something shiny, right? They go so well with this gorgeous 1950’s dress and I added a contrasting-color hat to keep it from being too monotone.
The natural cotton of this dress makes it a nice one to wear in the heat of the summer; I found myself changing from yesterday’s man-made fabrics to a vintage cotton dress, because it’s so much cooler to wear. Now I understand how they wore dresses all the time! I appreciate the convenience of man-made fabrics and the stretch of a good poly-spandex blend, but cotton is the best thing on hot days!
I hope you area all finding ways to keep cool this summer!
