Oh, Alice. Such a style icon our wonderful, wonderland Alice is. And her madness led to this little outfit. I found the dress at an absolute bargain price in a little botique and was instantly inspired. The dress itself has a lovely vintage feel, which meant pearls were an obvious choice. With my new-to-me clutch bag I was encorouged to follow the pastel lead and delve in to pinks and creams. I love how all the pieces: the gloves, the bag, the belt and the shoes match just perfectly. I know a lot of people avoid looking all matchy-matchy, but for me, when pieces match so seamlessly, its a crime not to use them together. Its like the outfit is meant to be. Talking of 'meant to be', let me just take a minute to appriciate how bloody perfectly the hair bow matches this dress! I found it on the way to this lovely gazebo, in a charity sop I popped into. Blue and white polka dot bow to go with my Alice in wonderland look? Meant to be indeed! The fashion God's were clearly looking over me. The glasses were an after thought. Infact, I had them in a bag because of the fabulously blinding sunshine we've been having and used them as a mirror to apply my lippy. That's the only reason they came to be in this outfit to be honest. But what a happy accident that was. The mirrored, perfect disc like lenses suggest something a little bizarre. And lets face it, Alice hardly had her head screwed on! It added a bit of edge to the look and was more unpredictable. And when were fairytale characters ever predictable?
