Inspired By ... Jasmine!

Welcome to the second edition of my Inspired By Disney Princesses feature.  Today, I'm going to show you an outfit inspired by Jasmine from Aladdin.  Jasmine is the daughter of the Sultan of Agrabah.  As a princess, she is trapped behind the castle walls.  The sultan's evil advisor Jafar has hatched a plan to find a lamp with a genie that can grant him three wishes and make him the new sultan.  Jafar finds out that a peasant named Aladdin is the only one who can unlock the secret cave in which the lamp is hidden.  Jasmine, while disguised as a beggar, meets Aladdin and the two fall in love.  Jafar captures him against Jasmine's wishes.  Aladdin is tricked into finding the lamp in the cave, but ends up trapped inside of it.  Finding the Genie, Aladdin and his monkey trick the Genie into getting them out of the cave.  As his first wish, Aladdin wants to become a prince so that he can marry Jasmine.  The Genie makes him Prince Ali Ababwa and gives him a grand entrance into Agrabah.  Meanwhile, Jafar has come up with a new plan to be sultan:  all he has to do is marry Jasmine.  However, Aladdin has convinced the sultan that he will make a good husband for the princess.  He takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride.  Jafar captures Aladdin and attempts to kill him by drowning him, but Genie saves him.  When he comes back, Sultan chooses Aladdin as Jasmine's husband instead of Jafar.  When Jafar sees the lamp sticking out of Aladdin's pocket, he realizes his secret and steals the lamp.  Jafar wishes himself to be sultan and banishes Aladdin.  However, Aladdin sneaks back into the palace and fights Jafar for the lamp.  He finally convinces Jafar to wish for himself to be a genie, sucking him back into the lamp.  Aladdin and Jasmine live happily ever after.


So here's the outfit I came up with.  I decided to go with a blue romper because it's comfortable, flowy, and it can be dressed up or down.  I added a black and gold statement necklace because the romper is completely plain.  I paired it with gold gladiator sandals and gold and turquoise earrings.  Next, I found a tiger bracelet, which is symbolic of Jasmine's pet tiger.  Black winged liner would complement this look perfectly, along with a sand-colored manicure.


So, what do you think?  Would you wear a tiger head bracelet?

Love, Lex.
