ONCE UPON A TIME

Seeing the words distressed and denim side by side in a sentence never would have triggered the thought of a glamorous dress, high-low bustier and definitely not floral prints. But somehow, this couture piece embodies all three elements in perfect proportions.

On sighting this piece at the Rent Frock Repeat showroom, I grew nostalgic as I remembered a time when all I wanted to be was a different Disney princess every other week.

Are things much different now? I don’t think so. I still crave for a heart as pure as Snow White’s, as patient as Cinderella’s, as brave as Mulan’s, as independent as Jasmine’s, as curious as Ariel’s & as determined and optimistic as Tiana’s.
