What is The Dress Up Dame?
The Dress Up Dame is a blog, all about treating every single day of your life as if it were a party, because life is a really beautiful, really special thing.
It’s about dressing up as the most authentic, beautiful you that you can be, because you are a princess created with a magnificent fairytale to live out.
Instead of ‘Happily Ever After’, The Dress Up Dame believes in ‘Happily Ever Now’. Life is too short to postpone happiness until ‘the next big thing’.
So, get inspired in your style, life, and career goals, and be the most beautiful, most happy dame that you can be. 🙂
Who is The Dress Up Dame?
I’m Katie Shuman, and I’m the Dress Up Dame. I’m just an ordinary dame living in Orlando trying to make it as a fashion and lifestyle blogger. I’m passionate about living my life like a party and inspiring other dames to do the same. I believe that life is such a treasure that we all take for granted far too often. I’m far from perfect, but treating every single day of my life like a party is one of my greatest aspirations.
When I’m not blogging, I can be found babysitting, spending time with my friends and family, and perusing thrift stores.
I love wearing pretty dresses (shocker, right?) and expressing myself through the vintage clothing that I wear. My ideal Friday night is one spent at home with delicious homemade food and the people I love most. I’m a kid at heart, and I think that I always will be – I love princesses, the color pink, and going to Disney.
These are a few of my favorite things …
Red lipstick (lots of it)
Girly adult coloring books (I don’t care if you judge)
My family and friends
Wearing vintage dresses
Playing dress up (I’ll never stop)
Baking and cooking
Getting all dolled up
Working alone in coffee shops
The Dress Up Dame’s Language
Dress up – To dress up is to live your life in such a magnificent, beautifully unique way that only you could live.
Dame – A dame is a beautiful, confident woman who is at rest with herself and with God. She is fully alive in the person she was created to be.
Party – A ‘party’ is how you choose to live every single day of your life. Every day is so precious and unique, and I believe that it deserves to be treated as such.
Fairytale – The remarkable story of a princess (you) and the life she was destined to live.
Happily Ever Now – To stop waiting for ‘happily ever after’ and to start embracing the tremendous beauty and happiness in your life at this very moment.
