Style File 07.21.11


Do you like Disney Movies? I LOVE them. I think I can sing every word, to every Disney song. Do you have a favorite? I love all the old classic like, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmations, and Beauty and the Beast, but my favorite is Hercules. Gospel Muses? Come on, now that is pure perfection. Such good music. The reason I ask is because, when I put on this dress I totally felt like Cinderella. I know it really isn’t like her dress, but something about it made me feel like I was in a Disney movie. I wish I had little mice, and sweet birds to come help me tidy up my house. Ok, back to the dress. I just love it. So romantic feeling and such a pretty pale blue color. I may not have been wearing glass slippers, but I was wearing something like it around my neck. Best necklace ever.

oh yeah. I am a total sucker for Newsies. Now that movie I can sing ever word too.

  1. SOOOO pretty.

  2. Yes yes yes! My Disney favs beyond the obvious are: Mulan, The Jungle Book and Tarzan (duh, Phil Collins!).

  3. I love pretty much all the Disney movies! Nothings like laying around cuddling with my kids, while watching a Disney lovely! Lately we’ve been watching Mary poppins. I love the color of your dress, I can see why it makes you feel like Cinderella.

  4. The dress is lovely (& I love it paired with the cognac belt!). Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin, and Lion King are my top three (I think fourth might be Mulan…).

  5. I work in a doctor’s office and lately we’ve been playing Aladdin non-stop and I LOVE it, I feel like a kid again when I watch it and I still remember every word. I love a good homage to Disney characters and this dress you’ve got is gorgeous!!

  6. That belt is gorgeous!!

    P.S. I’m hosting my first giveaway today! It’s an online shopping spree from Zestii, I hope you’ll stop by and enter ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Oh, my favorite Bedknobs & Broomsticks, which I’m pretty sure is Disney(?). Reminds me of my childhood & there are some great songs in that too!

  8. My favorite Disney movie is Hercules too! I absolutely LOVE it! And the songs : OH MY they’re all awesome !!! I know them by heart too (both in French and English!)
    And that dress is gorgeous, pale blue suits you well!
    Bisous, D.

  9. Robin Hood was my absolute favourite as a kid. A couple of months ago I was in a store somewhere and I heard this song that I recognized and could hum along but couldn’t quite place… and then suddenly it hit me, it was the song they played during the romantic firefly/forest scene. It had been ages since I saw that.
    As for songs, the ones I know best are the Little Mermaid’s under the sea (stuck in your head all day long) and the Mary Poppins ones.
    But as for the movies, I like the Japanese studio Ghibli movies even better than Disney ones, give them a try sometimes if you can, they’re gorgeous.

  10. That dress is indeed wonderful! I love the pretty blue color. I’m basically a Disney movie freak. [And a freak for most other cartoon movies of the 90’s.] I’m so happy to hear somebody talk about Hercules! It’s so underrated! The music is fun and the story is great too. I often put that one on and sing along to it with my sister. I also adore The Little Mermaid as it was my all-time favorite when I was very little. Plus, the music is awesome and Ariel has pretty red hair. Hunchback of Notre Dame is also a favorite of mine. It’s a bit more mature – in a good way. It’s beautifully drawn and has fantastic music too. It’s hard to choose favorites because I love them all so much. They’re what I watch when I want to feel happy.

  11. Ooh my favourites are Beauty and The Beast (so much so when I was younger that my dad painted the main picture from the cover of the video full length on my wall) and I used to watch it every night – that and Aladdin! ๐Ÿ™‚ And cinderella was always my sick day film of choice ๐Ÿ™‚ Ahh I miss childhood haha! I absolutely love the dress, the detailing is just lovely! I love the light colour of it too!

  12. I love that dress!!

  13. That dress is something special!!!!! I’m glad that I still have an excuse to watch Disney movies via my kids! Snow white has always been my favorite because there are great memories attached to it with my family. But oh I love Aladin, Pocahontas, Mulan, Neauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Lion King….well, you get the picture!

    Anyway, you look gorgeous!

  14. I love Disney movies, it’s been awhile since I’ve seen any of the older ones but I’m very partial to Beauty and the Beast, Lion King and the Little Mermaid! I think its the ice blue color and the waistline of the dress that is most Cinderella-esque! You look beautiful, and I adore your wrist full of bracelets and necklace choice!

  15. I can’t believe no one has mentioned NEWSIES yet! It’s the best. Young Christian Bale, ‘Spot Collins’, Young Bill Pullman – it’s seriously my fav movie of all time. I’ve been seeing Kenny Ortega, who directed it, pop up everywhere lately. Can I say that he directed High School Musical(s)? hah. And he was working on Michael Jackson’s tour (and is in the DVD)? That’s some serious talent, right there.

    Love the dress, love the color, love the shoes!

  16. Those shoes are amazing! And I Love Newsies!! ๐Ÿ™‚ One of the best movies ever!

  17. I recently learned that pale blue used to be considered a very feminine color and pink was for boys, since it is a shade of red. That is why the older Disney princesses always wear blue, and also why Mary (as in big J’s mom) is always wearing blue in statues and other depictions. Interesting… thought I’d share my random fact. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful dress. I love it, especially the detailed ruffles on the top. So pretty and looks great on you!

  18. I love how witty the Disney movies are for adults – it makes them great for the whole family!


  19. Lovely dress and you look great in it!

  20. Beautiful dress! All you need now is a pumpkin, some mice and a fairy godmother!

  21. I love Disney movies- especially Aladdin (and the Mighty Ducks movies- hey I’m originally from Michigan- and we love our hockey there, and they totally count as Disney!), and I love those shoes!!!

  22. The details on that dress are so pretty, the color is so beauitful!

  23. This look is gorgeous Jen! I totally LOVE Disney movies too, my favorites growing up were Aladdin and The Little Mermaid (oh how I wanted to be a mermaid!!). I adore Disney music, it’s always an instant pick me up! They make the best movie music for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Newsies is simply the most underrated Disney movie ever. They are doing a stage performance of it in New Jersey currently, which basically means I need to go to NJ. But besides the obvious Disney “musicals” my favourite of the cartoons is “The Emperor’s New Groove.” It’s the best. And, hey, any outfit that makes you feel like a Disney character is more than awesome.

  25. Beautiful dress! It reminds me of Cinderella too. I LOVE Disney movies! Especially Newsies, I can totally sing all those songs too!

  26. This dress is beautiful! Love it!

  28. Lion KIng! When Mufasa dies? So much crying…

    NEWSIES!!!! My all time #1! Its rare that I find anyone else who absolutley loves the movie. I have it in VHS and DVD, I also have the soudtrack but in tape form lol.
    I will always and forever love Jack “Cowboy” Kelly AKA Christian Bale. No matter what psycho or super hero, or drug addict character he plays he will always be Jack to me, the KING OF NY! I must go home and watch that movie now.
    Such a classic.


  30. Beautiful dress, loving all the bracelets!

  31. The necklace is beautiful! It’s also nice to see someone else who loves Newsies. Usually when I mention it, people are like what?

  32. it is because of newsies that i will always and forever have a HUGE crush on christian bale. he is delicious. you look gorgeous in this color ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. That dress is gorgeous! It’s the perfect Cinderella blue. I love hoe you paired the little brown belt with it too.

  34. Lion King and The Little Mermaid for me. I am re- watching all the classic Disney movies with my kids and will have to put Hercules on my list. Loving your entire ensemble- head to toe!

  35. OH MY GOSH. NEWSIES! I LOVE it. I was just recommending it to someone this evening. – Leah

  36. This dress is a little Cinderella-esque, isn’t it?? Straight out of a fairy tale! ๐Ÿ™‚ You look so gorgeous in it, Jen.

    Oh gosh, Hercules is my fave. I also love Beauty and the Beast and Snow White!

  37. i LOVE hercules too! i can’t even pick a favorite movie because i love them all so much. maybe tied between 101 Dalmations and sleeping beauty.
