After doing my Alice in Wonderland style post, I was feeling rather inspired. I thought that I would put together an outfit from my own wardrobe for each character. The outfits will be coming in dribs and drabs over the next few days. It was a lot of fun, and I basically wanted to demonstrate how you can translate fantasy fashion into an everyday context.
Last night, my friend Sam and I went to see Alice for the second time (or first time, in Sam’s case). As I wore an Alice-inspired outfit last time, I thought that a night-time viewing called for something a little more wicked.
I am wearing:
– Red free fusion dress
– black and red rag skirt from Dotti
– Black fishnet tights from Diva
– Red and white checked shoes from Shoo Biz
– Red rose earrings
– Amethyst ring
– Ace of Hearts Necklace from Diva
– Black studded belt
– Red leopard print ring from Equip.
I was thrilled with this outfit, especially my makeup. It was a lot of fun, and was a little bit “Marie Antoinette meets the Red Queen”. The movie was great the second time around, and I found that I actually picked up more of the detail of the film this time, because I wasn’t so overwhelmed by the whole experience. I had an excellent time cataching up with Sam too, who wore a gorgeous outfit BTW. I wish I had taken photos so I could show you the amazing shoes she rocked up in, but oh well.
Today, I felt as though I needed to temper my power-hungry Red Queen outfit with something a little more mellow. So I went for an etheral White Queen look.
A big thanks to Steve, my mini-Cheshire Cat.
Today I am wearing:
– Sass and Bide rose t shirt
– Now white peasant skirt
– Silver sandals from Betts
– Diamante earrings from Diva
– Diamente ring from Diva
– Pearl necklace from Nana
– Silver filigree bracelet
I was a bit worried about trying out the White Queen’s makeup, but I think it turned out OK. I was a lot of fun to try and I am really enjoying wearing this frothy, floaty outfit today.
I’m off now, to whip up some potions and make fluttering gestures with my hands!
Have a great day!
