Clothes For Fairytale Characters

cath kidston apples-1
I grew up reading fairytales, now I occasionally pretend to be in one in photographs. I never planned on moving to Ireland (or even visiting Ireland for that matter!) but now it seems like the perfect place for me--a green country filled with epic castles and stunning coastlines that suits my fantasy-inclined preferences. As for fairytale characters I don't usually reference a specific one, but due to my pale skin and penchant for apple orchards Snow White does come up often enough. I've always erred on the side of imitating the character in the book or story in style rather than wearing a tee with their face on it, in a subtle fashion anyway. Costume reproductions and cosplay always seem to take a bit too much dedication for me, whereas I just want to seem a bit ambiguously fairytale-like (fairytale-lite if you will). Clothes a character in a story would wear, maybe in an updated way some days. These new pieces from Cath Kidston hit that sweet spot of wearable and referential; an apple print shirtdress that reminds you of the classic story but probably more practical for daily life than Snow White's indelible duds...and of course I'm always a fool for a novelty purse. I feel like this apple purse might be my most apt one yet with my in-law's apple farm I seem to haunt come autumn-time when the trees are laden with fruit. This Snow White collection isn't online yet, but will be available at Cath Kidston on the 20th! apples-1 cath kidston apples-33 cath kidston apples-9-side cath kidston apples-21 cath kidston apples-19 cath kidston apples-23 cath kidston apples-8
