Little Red

What I Wore:
Cardigan: Forever 21
Shirt: Target
Skirt: Target
Boots: Target
Tights: Nordstrom
Scarf: Harvester Products
Belt: T.J. Maxx
Leather Satchel: Oufi

If you've seen the TV show Once Upon A Time you probably know why I decided to portray an unfamiliar dark version of Little Red Riding Hood. Of course, I won't give anything away so you'll just have to watch and see for yourself. If you love fairy tale characters, a good story, and twists and turns like that of LOST, I'm sure you'll love this show. It's definitely one of my all time favorites.

Many of these pieces you've seen before. I just re-worked them in different ways to create a new look. However, these tights you have not seen. I was on the hunt for more of a lacey print but I stumbled upon something a bit more grand. They have a very unique stitch (is that what you would even call it?). Thank you Nordstrom! The scarf was a gift from my mom of Harvester Products. The red cardigan worked perfectly as Red's coat, and while the rest of my outfit consisted of mostly black I knew I had to have something that popped. Something that would complete the look and make sense at the same time. An important part of her story was told during the Winter season while it was snowing. I knew at once this was the perfect scarf to represent the cold weather.

So, what do you think? Would you have known who I was without me telling you? Have you ever put together an outfit after a favorite character? Major props to my husband who knew right when he got home from work! We both had a lot of fun shooting these photos! You just may be seeing more outfits based off of different characters in the future...

As soon as I saw the first photo, and before I read any of the text, my mind went to "Once Upon a Time". An uncanny resemblance to the show character. Great photo shoot and you look amazing!

You're too cute, Jen! Haha. I have no idea about TV basically ever, but I do really like this outfit! That mai cardi is perfect!

I would have never guessed this was you...it does make for a great costume...kinda gothic riding hood, which totally works for that type of fairy tale. It's amazing how much darker and more full of life messages the original fairy tales are...Disney definitely took those elements out!
