BIBBIDI-BOBBIDI-BOO

Having four roommates in a tiny apartment with only one bathroom and no living room sounds a bit insane, no? Well, welcome to my life, for the next year at least. Even though the bathroom is crazy packed with products, the fridge is up to the point where the light is dimmed by the surplus amount of food, and we can hear each sweet word of nothing you whisper through the paper thin walls at 3 AM, there certainly are perks that comes with living in such a full house...which reminds me of Full House...and my huge unrelenting crush on Uncle Jesse...who DIDN'T have a crush on that sexy hunk?

The one major benefit, and definitely my favorite, has to be the fact that I've gained four fairy godmothers. Doesn't the light blue color of the dress remind you of Cinderella? Due to the fact that it was my favorite Disney Classic as a child, it does to me and I couldn't help but giggle at the fact that my roommates are pretty much like the cute ol' godmother who turns rags into gowns.

I'll stare at my abundantly overflowing wardrobe and think to myself, "I have absolutely nothing to wear, pooey!"Through all the contemplation, complaints, and wanting to walk out with my never-seen-the-light-of-day-white-as-can-be buttocks so they can finally make their grand appearance, I continue to sit there, in silent fuming desperation. Then, all of a sudden, almost like magic, POOF! I suddenly remember that I can walk three feet to either sides of my room and find four more closets staring me dead in the eye, begging me to wear its beautiful contents.

How can I resist? How can I possibly say no. The simple truth is that I don't. I've never been good at saying the word "no" to begin with, why start now?

Thus, this is the story of how I got my Cinderella-inspired "happily ever after" outfit, all thanks to my new fairy godmothers.

I love borrowing my sister's clothes, but she doesn't live with me :( Too bad my roommates and I don't really have similar tastes in style, and my other roommate is super tiny and size -5 so I can never borrow things from her! I love that dreamcatcher bracelet, it's so cute! You are so adorbs in clothes that aren't yours ;)

Now I see what you mean - about Disney!

Let's say I always liked shirts with some Disney characters, but surprisingly now it's all over the stores. Cann't say I don't like it though :)

Moreover, I love making the transition from cartoon to the real life, and somehow creating a stylish look.

Your outfit absolutely is adorable <3

Your fairy god mothers have definitely worked a treat for you in this number. Those boots are not quite glass slippers but we can let that one slip too. But the question is, where is Prince Charming for the lovely lady?

Lots of love from Sydney,
