Day 15: Modern Day Princess
I used to put necklaces on my hair like this when I was a little girl and pretend to be a medieval princess. After a few History of Britain classes, I know better - I'd rather be a strong, elegant, hardworking woman now than bleed myself to look pale, and then die really young of gum disease.
I still like the look, though. And I don't mind a little waiting-on-hand-and-foot.
This outfit is another example of what I've learned from this challenge! I chose the green dress because I wanted to evoke "princess" without being too precious. When I looked at it, I thought "This needs another texture..." I NEVER would have thought to put this lacy shirt under this dress before now.
I'm so excited to see what people come up with today! I'm always looking for new hairstyles. I tend to get into a half-back rut.
