The Magnolia Festival princesses are an honored tradition in Mobile, Alabama, harkening back to the southern bell days of plantation life. Festivals through the Spring and Summer are attended by local young women dressed in this flouncy hoop skirts of bright pastels in pinks, yellow, green, red, and purple.
At a local festival, one of the princesses paused to talk to a little girl on the street, comparing shoes or outfits. Both in pinks, I couldn’t resist grabbing the moment, seeing a future princess in the young girl. A timeless moment.
