If I Were a Princess

Beyonce sang a song about what she would do if she were a boy. Well, frankly, I don't want to be a boy. What I do want, is to be a princess. And if I were a princess, I would wear this... all the time.

{Dress: c/o eShakti, Shoes: Cole Haan, Watch: Marc Jacobs, Bracelets: David Yurman, t+j Designs}

If there was one thing that made me feel like a princess, it's wearing tulle. Other than when I was 3 and had my 5 minutes of twirling in ballet class just so I could wear a tutu, I've never owned any tulle skirts again. That is until now. This dress has both lace and tulle, which makes it the ultimate girly dress. I love eShakti for dresses because I can customize options to fit both my style and my body. And this dress has pockets... totally awesome right?!

Now my husband is probably reading this and thinking, "if you were a princess? Don't you already act like one?" Well no, because I still don't have an entire room dedicated to shoes yet. You better believe that would be the first thing I do if I were a princess!

Did you used to pretend you were a princess when you were little? What would be the first thing you do if you were a princess?

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

Even if you are not a princess you can wear that beautiful dress on a daily basis :) And it doesn't get any more girly than tulle.

Happiness at Mid Life said...

You don't need to be a princess to wear a tulle skirt. I have been wanting a tulle skirt but just haven't figured out where can I use it. I think it would be too much for my work and I go no where fancy - to the grocery story or farmers market?

You look fab!


McKenna Ryan said...

You are a princess my dear! At least you look like one every single day. I love this dress. Happy Friday. xx. McKenna Lou

you sooo look like a princess in that stunning dress yi chia! i love it! You are always gorg! love the pop of red in your shoes! <3


Akinyi Ragwar said...

I think honestly we women tend to have princess moments when we put on a dress or clothing that makes us feel the most beautiful! When I was younger, I would bat my eyes at my mom to get a treat or a toy sometimes it would work! As I get older I can't have any princess moments otherwise I'll have no friends! LOL!

I love this dress, it surely flatters you and I love the red pumps with this look!

xoxo Akinyi

Oh I absolutely love everything about your dress. I dream of owning dozens of tulle skirts. My sister Jessica can sew (I have no crafting abilities) and I have been begging her to make me some tulle skirts.

Did I pretend I was a princess when I was little? Are you kidding? I still pretend I'm a princess and I likely act like I am most of the time too.

How can you beat lace and pockets? (Hah, its always a deciding factor for me if a dress has pockets.) This is such a pretty dress, I really like the lace in a little more unexpected color like this blue and the tulle is very pretty.

Natalia A said...

Funnily enough, I never wanted to be a princess, but ballerina. :) And I did have a tulle skirt for that. :)
And if I were a princess, I'd wear the prettiest shoes - and a beautiful dress, but the dress would definitely come second. :)
