So today Katti and I went to see Belle! I really don't think I can explain the movie in a way that does it justice, but it was such a great movie with so many emotional scenes... the struggle of Belle is highlighted by her background as the daughter of an admiral and a slave woman. She was raised by her father's uncle, an Earl, but even being brought up in a life of privilege and elevated rank was not enough for Belle to escape the prejudices that were so alive during that time.

You can't really tell, but I braided my hair to look a little similar to the woman in the portrait and I wore a blouse with a lace collar and put a bow on it... I wasn't sure what the bottom of her dress looked like, but I improvised...

Skirt: Little Dipper
Shoes and Tights: Off-brand
If you haven't seen Belle, I would highly recommend it! The costumes and scenery also made this movie a real marvel and there were so many things that the main characters wore that Katti and I wished were in our own closets!
