These Wonderland inspired music videos inspire a level of giddiness in me that goes undiminished as time passes; the same type of giddiness was caused by this photo shoot from Chotronette. Accuracy be damned, that bunny dress is fantastic, and I don’t care what color ears I have to get to wear it. Heck, I think I even have a Pinterest DIY for lace ears saved somewhere. I’ll make my own damn ears if I have to! As if it wasn’t cute enough on its own, the description makes it even better:
Add two teaspoons of dark chocolate and mix together with strawberry mousse. Garnish with a fondant giant bow and mille feuille ruffles and serve on a victorian cliff house tea party.
Don’t get me wrong: this gorgeous embroidered white boho dress is the stuff of my sparkle fairy hippie dreams, and any other day… maybe even tomorrow, I’d be over the moon for it, but today… today I am all about black satin and pink tulle.
I’m also considering what types of shoes and tights would be best with my imaginary ensemble. I am leaning towards black lace tights and a really cute pair of black peeptoe wingtip heeled booties. Although, I also am thinking that it could be really cute with thigh-highs and an elaborate garter belt type situation too. I mean you wouldn’t see the whole rig-up, but just a little peek at the hemline would be great for visual interest.
One last thing, I’m not a huge fan of my natural god given freckles, but those glitzy gold ones could be fun to try out. I mean, maybe I’d go for a rose gold or something a little holo, but nonetheless, tres, tres cute.
Guys, I am going to level with you for a moment. I am geeky, stupid, run around in a circle excited about the Alice Through the Looking Glass movie coming out next week. I know I am probably setting myself up for heartbreak and disappointment, but I love all things Wonderland (or Underland), and I loved the first movie so much. I’ve been trying very hard to be reasonable about my fandom, carefully considering the deluge of swag available before selecting the things I want most. The first purchase was the pallet and a lipstick from Urban Decay.
I stalked this collection daily online until I could pre-order it; I missed out on the last Alice pallet, and there was no way that I was going to let that happen again. Especially since I had gift cards, rewards points, and coupons that got the cost down to a very reasonable $20ish including the lipstick. I knew I need the lipstick too since A – it’s called Mad Hatter and B – it satisfies number 17 on my 30 before 31.
I haven’t been able to bring myself to use the pallet yet. It’s so pristine and perfect! I will be wearing it when I go see the movie, so at most, it’ll look this way for another week. I am interested to try the “Mad Hatter” and “Iracebeth” colors; I am mostly a sparkly neutrals kind of girl, but hey, why not? I have worn the lipstick a few times, and although purple glitter isn’t my usual choice, it looks really good on me. I have to say I feel just a smidgen like a bad-ass when I have it on.
