When I was a young child, my dress-up days were spent in full princess garb. I owned just about every Ariel-themed product on the market and Disney World was the place where magic lived. A decade and a half later, I haven’t exactly put my obsession to rest, though I do avoid dressing like fairytale characters (most days).
So when I heard that the Walt Disney Company collaborated with the lovely Julie Andrews and Target to create a week that should have existed way before now, I hit the net almost immediately in search of goodies that’ll make you the fairest of them all. The first EVER National Princess week runs from April 22-28.
With that said, here are 10 princess accessories to help you celebrate – in a (mostly) adult way, of course. Whether you’re a Belle, Snow White, Cinderella, an Aurora or an Ariel, here’s what you need to feel like royalty all week long.
I always wished I could emulate the bookish and beautiful Belle. So if you’re wondering how you can be the belle of the ball sans a flowing yellow gown, try these accessories on for size.
