Alice in Wonderland

With the release of Tim Burton's version of "Alice in Wonderland" due to hit the big screen soon, I thought it would be fun to do a little Alice themed series. Day by day, we will look at key characters and events in the book and find some fun items to fit the theme.

Today, we will start at the obvious starting place: Alice, herself. I have scoured etsy and have found some perfectly sweet items for the modern-day Alice.

In early illustrations, Alice is often pictured in a blue dress with a white apron over top.
That's a little old-fashioned. Instead, I have found this darling blue pinafore. It has the traditional blue, but it also has this lively, swirly print, that has a whimsical wonderland meets Who-ville quality to it. This reversible pinafore is by threeyellowstarfish.

Maryjanes, always a smart footwear choice would look absolutely perfect with this pinafore. These sweet vintage little girls shoes are found in the shop of vireovintage.

Naturally, a modern day Alice would want to accessory just a little. With all that sliding down tunnels and flamingo croquet, it would be best to keep the hair out of one's eyes. This headband would do the trick nicely, and fashionably. It is by BabyKDesigns.

Why, that darling little girl actually looks a little like Alice, doesn't she?

Join me tomorrow as we continue on with more adventures in Wonderland.
