If you're like me and everyone else my age give or take 50 years, you are very well aware of the promised "Happily Ever After". Any strife, drama, debilitating circumstances and valuable lessons according to this theory all occur before you say "I do". Because after you get your Man and fight off the evil female predator after you (yes- ever notice that? Cruella de Vil, Ursula, The Wicked Witch of the West... to name a few), it is smooth sailing. Right?
Well, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship over 6 months can tell you - wrong. Some nights long after the steamy passion of a courtship, you'll find yourself noticing that you can't get away fast enough- and would even resort to driving your Pumpkin with one shoe on as long as it meant you could get outta the house.
Enter Dina Goldstein.
A non-US native, Dina began her relationship with Disney through a much different lens than most of us. She was older, educated and had no previous exposure to that fairytale that is ever-so-promised to all of us stateside girls. This unique vantage point gave way to her amazing collection "The Fallen Princesses".
Each incredible photograph depicts the Princesses we all know and love in a potentially modern scenario which roots into their specific storyline. I have been fascinated with this collection since the moment I saw it and figured it was beyond worth sharing on my Blog.
^Little Red Riding Hood
^The Princess and the Pea
^The Little Mermaid

Which Princess sticks out to you and what do you think their representation means?
PS- Jasmine is always the hottest.
