For the 5th day of my Disney Challenge I chose to be Belle from Beauty & the Beast! Yaiii, her dress is gorgeous and of course mine doesn't compare... but at least it's yellow! jajaja. I thought the somewhat off shoulder detail of this dress resembles hers, as well as the color.

As you can see in this picture, Belle wears a full skirt with a white underskirt. So what I did was add a white skirt under my yellow dress to make it a little fuller. The best part is that the white skirt has embroidery borders that peek under the dress! It really turned out to be a cute detail!

Since Belle's outfit is pretty much all yellow with the exception of her brown hair, I kept my color scheme the same: yellow and brown.

Also, since the red rose was so important in the movie, I tried to incorporate it in various parts of my outfit. I first added a red flower hair pin in my hair. And then I added a red rose ring and a red flower bracelet!

To finish it all off, I added my rose scarf in order to stay warm. Now that sure was a lot of roses in this outfit, jeje :)

  6. This might be my favorite one in the series. You really do look like a modern Belle and I love the touches of red you added to the outfit -- that rose is perfect! This is such a cute outfit and you look really pretty in yellow.

  9. What an ingenious idea to add the white skirt under the yellow dress. The white lace gives the look a pretty feminine touch. All the rose elements add a splash of contrasting color and your lipstick adds the final touch to the whole outfit. This sure is fun coming here to see your creativity in full swing. You really are bella and the Belle of the ball!!!
