Little town

Summer seems to be the season in which nostalgia finds its way through the smallest peeks and windows. As I was working on another photo, Belle’s song, also known as ‘Little Town’, started to play through my automatically generated YouTube playlist. The memories hit me hard as I remembered my endless love for the bookworm Disney princess and felt my heart fill itself with delight as I remembered strolling around Disneyland Paris in my very own princess Belle dress with my hair tied up just like she always had it. It wasn’t until recently that my childhood innocence was crushed by the realization that Belle suffered from major Stockholm syndrome but the joy and sense of sentiment after hearing the first notes of the Beauty & The Beast tune made my adulthood realizations fade away and it all back to me. Not my innocence, unfortunately that has been taken away from me without hope of returning, but the memories and in some way, my lost hope. I always feared of growing up and turning bitter. I felt anxious about losing my childlike spark and belief that all wishes and dreams can come true, as the Disney movies always taught me. But for some reason I have a feeling that those childlike tendencies will never leave me and they have never been a part of my just my childhood, but a part of who I am. Thus a part of my own lively fairytale and someday, my own happily ever after ♥

“Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she’s feeling well
With a dreamy, far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle”
– Beauty & The Beast, Little Town

Coincidentally, Serenity Style brought out this adorable ‘My Little Town’ gacha set at The Project Se7en which seemed perfect for the circumstances. I decided to create a bedroom, inspired by my brothers old bedroom which was filled with little toy houses amongst other urban or townlike structures, all carved out of oak wood and painted over with vibrant and playful colours. I also used the new Southwest set by Fiasco which was recently released at The Liaison Collective and finished the room with several pieces from the amazing 22769 ~ [bauwerk] and Schultz Bros.
