Collecting Aschenputtel

Cinderella's Dress



“Shake yourself, shake yourself, little tree.

Throw some nice clothing down to me.”

She [Aschenputtel] had scarcely spoken these words when a splendid silver dress fell down before her. With it were pearls, silk stockings with silver decorations, silver slippers and everything else she needed. – Kate Forsyth, The Wild Girl

        1. They’re both good. Forsyth also has a WWII set Beauty and the Beast retelling called The Beast’s Garden that I’d recommend. She’s got a Sleeping Beauty set amongst the pre-Raphaelite painters as well, but I haven’t read that one yet!
