I am honestly beyond excited to share with you guys the first of an ongoing storybook series that I have been wanting to bring to life for the longest time now! I'm sure many of you have noticed that I have loved nothing more than drawing inspiration from favorite characters (be it from fairytales, film, or literature) in my usual outfit posts, but this time around I wanted to take that to a new level and create something that really transports you into a fantasy world. It took a lot of pre-planning to execute each shoot: lots of brainstorming of how I could translate the costumes of these original characters into something much more modern, the making of certain pieces (such as this giant bow I made the morning of the shoot!), and finding the perfect location for each storybook setting.

Since I would be styling a modern interpretation of Snow White's costume, it was very important to me that I incorporate the same colors of red, blue and yellow. Although my plans did change a bit when I saw this two piece dress from Lulu*s and fell so much in love with the graphic and artistic element of the print. So to make sure this outfit had some yellow in there I styled the dress with a gold necklace from Lulu*s as well, and also purchased a bouquet of yellow flowers ;) And of course, Snow White would not be complete without her signature red bow either, and since I was making mine, I figured why not just make it huge for a more playful look? <3

Words cannot express how thankful I am for the immense patience both my sister, Michelle and my boyfriend, Chris had in helping me get these shots. I especially want to applaud my sister for her incredible creative direction behind the camera too! I also want to say a huge thank you to Tierney from Lulu*s for making all the outfits in the first 3 looks of this series possible. Now I cannot wait to show you guys the next look in the series!
