a is for alice in wonderland
A few days ago I went to see a movie in theaters, and I finally witnessed the Alice in Wonderland preview on the big screen. I am more excited for it than I was for Avatar! What better way to relive my childhood than to take a few fashion tips from Alice and her friends (in 3D nonetheless), and she also happens to be a perfect starting point for my March feature. Down the rabbit hole we go!
One thing I must comment on in this movie is the makeup - it's absolutely incredible, and I think my friend Kelly Campbell will agree! The fashion is amazing as well; the colours are so bright and bold, which is perfect for the upcoming warmer seasons. First, Alice's signature blue dress - blue's are making a comeback this year, and although I don't have the skin colour to pull off a pale shade, I fell in love with this ruffled skirt from BB Dakota ($50) Also, the dark orange shade of Johnny Depp's wig plays perfect contrast with this gorgeous Alice + Olivia chiffon dress ($140). On a playful note, shocking green flats by Chinese Laundry ($40) found at Sterling.
With the production of the show comes amazing publicity for not only Disney, but its 'Disney Couture' line of accessories. I'm in love with this Alice suede wrap wristband ($130) and so is Leighton Meester! And OPI Nail Lacquer has teamed up with the entertainment industry once again and has produced their own line of Alice in Wonderland nail colours - my favourite is 'Off with her Red!' ($9)
Go crazy with your outfit choices this spring! No colour or pattern is too bold when worn correctly, as the Queen of Hearts demonstrates quite nicely. Blue eye shadow with red hair? Why not.
UPDATE: Just discovered these adorable Alice in Wonderland tee's exclusively from Urban Outfitters! So glad I came across them - I'm a little bit in love. We're Not In Wonderland Anymore, Curiouser & Curiouser, Truly Madly Deeply. All for $25!
