If you follow me on Instagram, then you might have seen a preview to the below image. What that post did not reveal is that I did not go as Belle just once for Halloween, but for a grand total of THREE times. First, seen below, as provincial Belle.
The next year I really wanted to glam it up, which, given my proud smirk, made me feel PRETTY hot.
The next year, I went back to my roots and reprised my role as approachable, provincial Belle once again (blue Belle).
Very late to the party, I finally saw the new Beauty and the Beast movie last week. I cried 5 times in scenes that you definitely weren’t supposed to cry in. What I really, really loved was how they brought the costumes to life on Emma Watson. To no surprise, the blue Belle stood out as my favorite adaptation.
While **I DO NOT SUPPORT COSPLAY**, I couldn’t help but think about think about the new bohemian aesthetic that feels more refined French countryside, less wasted white girl at Coachella.
Here are 4 dresses that I’m loving that DO NOT SUPPORT COSPLAY, but would remind me of my provincial Belle outfit obsession.
