Princess to Influencer that Inspires

It seems as a littler girl I always had a favorite Disney princess to go to for inspiration in life. Now you may ask who were my favorites? I had two and to this day they still are my favorites. They are Belle and Ariel, two very different heroines with much in common including finding their voice and strength.

Obviously I have realized all of this as I have gotten older, but something inatly drew me to them even at a young age. I always wanted to play dress up to be like my favorite princess heroines, which not only did my love of fashion develop, but my love of dreams and making them come true became ever so part of my life.

An ensemble is a dream/power armor set that prepares to take me out in the world to make my dreams and passions come true and looking great is just a bonus.

Don’t get me wrong I still love my heroine princesses, but I pull inspiration for my armor from new sources as well like magazines, family, friends and my fellow bloggers. One of my favorites to pull inspiration from is Alicia Lund of Cheetah is the New Black (http://cheetahisthenewblack.com) . She is always an amazing inspiration, Alicia is a true heroine in her own right and in all that she all does, which is why I always love finding inspiration for everything.

She recently posted on rocking denim and here is how I pulled my look together based on Alicia’s ensemble.
