I Am A Pirate You Are A Princess.

One of my favourite movies as a child was "A Little Princess". The storyline is simple, yet the costuming and scale of the movie is elaborate, delicate and visually stunning! Everything one of my favourite movie characters of all time, wears in this film is exactly what I love now. Full of bows, heart pendants, dandy shoes, perfect coats, lacey ruffly ultra-feminine dresses and the most perfect ringlets. Plus that part where she walks into the door makes me laugh my face off everytime...

If you haven't already I would say that you must get your hands on the movie! Not only it up there with my favourite movies of all time,but it is a timeless classic (well in my eyes). I have not met one single person that doesn't like the movie or haven't wanted to be Sarah Crew in their lifetime.

I pray that my fall wardrobe morphs into something as wonderful as even the 4 outfits pictured above. Heck i would sell my mother just to get my hands on the school uniform!

Yay, I'm always so excited to find another Kiwi blogger! I've noticed your pictures on Trade Me (I'm selling off some of my vintage stuff at the moment).

I agree, the costuming of that movie is wonderful. I love that sort of Victorian porcelain doll look, with lots of bows and buttons.
