Princess Zelda is the HBIC of Hyrule. Together with Link, she must protect the kingdom from Ganon, the evil wizard/pig. This time, I decided to focus in on Zelda during The Ocarina of Time which remains to be one of my favorite video games to date. When we first meet Zelda she is young and becomes childhood friends with Link. Naturally, when we travel forward in time, she is older and wiser. She spends half of her adulthood disguised as Sheikh of the Sheikah tribe. When disguised, she helps guide Link in his quest to vanquish evil. Finally, she is revealed as the strong, wise and triforce wielding Princess Zelda. WOOO!!! NINTENDO!!!

I’m breaking from regularly scheduled programming to share this with you all. One of my very best friends Jason teaches a few 5th graders. He, being the pal that he is, shares my blog with them which I find both honoring and hysterical. One of his students drew these and asked that he show them to me.
Let’s give the student her due. Clearly, they have a knack for drawing tech flats—a highly sought after skill.
#1. Lanvin Esque, let’s take a look here—1 shouldered, possibly draped, very remiscent of Alber’s jewel tone looks.
#2. Simple, definitely an LBD vibe going on. The shape is very Valentino (the new Valentino that is) or Prada when she’s feeling minimal.
#3. This ensemble is definitely a doozie, more 90’s throwback than any of the others. I could see some Jil Sander or maybe even Miu Miu (Spring 2011) in the skirt and as far as the top goes…I’m not quite sure but it has kind of a Betsey Johnson vibe happening.
#4. This looks like it’s got several layers fabric happening, possibly different materials…has potential for a sort of Meadham Kirchoff vibe, no?
#5. Some 80’s throwback here, possibly a nod to Marc by Marc or if in polka dots Marc Jacobs collection. Maybe even a little Mary Katrantzou in that structured sleeve.
#6. Wrap dress? The fifth grader knows their Diane Von Furstenberg
#7. With that neckline and what looks like some body cutouts I’m thinking Versace, Christopher Kane (Spring 2011) or maybe even some Balmain action.
#8. Colorblocking galore on this piece, very Prabal Gurung/Thakoon.
My grade for this assignment? A+.
Textbook has lead to some great things—fashion shows, a couple random projects and a lot of new people but I gotta say…this is the best so far.
What’s an Elizabeth Bennet post without one of her sisters? Let’s look at Lydia, the flirtatious frivolous one, the carefree one, the one who like just doesn’t care about anything. Her behavior puts her family’s reputation in jeopardy along with her own well-being. After running away with the villainous Mr. Wickham and he is bribed to marry her, she considers it a fine marriage. I don’t know, Lydia’s just a bit of an airhead. I know a lot of girls like Lydia and sooner or later things catch up with them and they go crazy. But it’s always fun to watch.

Pippi Longstocking has a pretty sweet life—super human strength and a house all to herself. She also seemed to have endless adventures, which can’t surprise anybody because she’s a character in a children’s story. I bet she dressed like a crazy person though…which pretty much means she dressed really f’ing awesome.

You see this? You see this right here? This is Queen Elizabeth I. She was pretty much the most badass monarch to grace England…right up there with Eleanor of Aquitane and Queen Vicky (Victoria and I were on a nickname basis.) I’m sure you all know her well from your high school history classes and various wikipedia adventures so I won’t get into it. But let’s just say if you ascend the throne only to become a patron of the arts and fearless leader you’d probably have some pretty sick style.
1. An Armada? Please Phillip, this is so childish.
