Want to look like a princess?

As I hinted at on a previous post, I personally do not care for the notion that grown women don some tulle poufy/beaded dress because it makes them look and feel “like a princess.”

This  notion that American women have of what it means to look like a princess owes its origins to Disney cartoons and most certainly not  grounded in any contemporary reality. Real princesses (Kate Middleton, Princess Letizia of Spain, for instance) don’t dress like some Disney cartoon. They dress like this:
