When I grow up, I’m going to be Princess Leia…

When I was six, my dream was to be ‘Princess Leia’ when I ‘grew up’. (It was the early 80’s.) In my eyes, it was attainable, she has brown hair, I have brown hair. And even now as an adult the two buns… it’s an image that’s burned in my ‘things to covet’ memory files.

Which was what caught my eye in the beginning with these dreamy pictures I found on Dripbook by Magdelena Krajewska. These beautiful images with the double buns.. but I noticed the strikingly ethereal clothing she’s wearing. Unfortunately designer of the clothing wasn’t listed, but I was captivated by the form and the weightlessness, the kind of clothing I wish I could see more of. For when I do grow up,  I’ll be wearing dresses like these.

  6. These images, and the clothes of course, are just lovely. To me, the women in the bottom photos look like they are from the roaring ’20s with their beautiful hair styles and sophisticated dresses. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could dress like this more often (if at all) in our daily lives so we could at least feel like a princess.

  9. Double buns are so whimsical and fairyish as well! At least I can’t help thinking so. They remind me of course of Leia, but also of Bjork!
