What to Wear #53: Once a Mermaid

Well, a hoodie-wearing mermaid popping out of the ocean for a stroll among humans.

Legs are required for jumping, dancing, strolling along down the…what’s that word again? Street

I simply cannot resist. This whole outfit has taken on a harmonious blue colour scheme, which is fine, oceanic, maritime associations and all that. I just love that dress, it reminds me of the determined dreamer in me and, without fail, what it was like to discover The Little Mermaid as a small child, the deepening fascination with fairytales, stories and stories behind stories. I immediately knew that this was my Disney animated feature, and a few years later, during the part of my childhood I spent in the States, I was very worried indeed that the video (yes) was proving hard to track down. Both the film and video release dates had already passed and I was feeling bereft. When we finally did find a copy, my waiting was rewarded by the fact that the video was inclosed in a bigger plastic casing, which was more durable in eager childish fingers than the thinner cardboard ones.

If The Little Mermaid will follow the current trend of Disney’s live-action remakes of animated classics, I’m expecting a very emotional time. I just googled some of the rumours surrounding casting decisions, and all I have to say is please, God, no…

All this from one dress! The hoodie is also from my recent flea market jaunt in Kiel, and the earrings were bought while waiting for my train home from Düsseldorf. I seem to be experiencing a multiple ring phase.

Ready to go.
