Through The Looking Glass

All of the world seems to have gone a bit Mad-Hatter wild for Alice in Wonderland. However, I am not complaining especially when it leads to fashion inspired by the books and films. I love clothes with a large dose of whimsy. So, when I was invited to style a piece from Forever 21's new line inspired by Alice in Wonderland I was quite excited.
The peter pan collar and clock print on this tunic is such a pretty interpretation of "Alice" style. It is very silky and trimmed in tulle and the colors definitely took me outside of my "comfort zone" (in general, I am not a lover of pink). If I was more of a pants or leggings wearer, you would have the full effect of the tunic, but since I'm a dress and skirts girl, I tucked it in and just tried to let the print shine. To keep the outfit more playful I threw on my new creamy, Girly Girl shoes. They are very feminine and wonderful heels and I'm sorely tempted to paint a black cap-toe on...

Outfit details:
Leanne skirt from Modcloth
H&M tights and cardigan
nOir hedgehog ring via Gilt
secondhand rings

OH MY GOD FOREVER 21 HAVE AN ALICE IN WONDERLAND LINE!? *hyperventilates* this is one of those times I really REALLY wish I lived in america. *craves* Although I usually hate it when everything suddenly cashes in on a phenomenon, I love Alice so much that fashion inspired by it is fine by me! and the tunic looks pretty on you (although I know what you mean, I don't really do pink either) :) xx

These photos are gorgeous.
I love reading your posts...you have such a dreamy aesthetic and I lose myself in the art of it all.

meowsk said...

A nice take on the Alice look. Have you seen the new film yet? This outfit is very Alice at the Queen of Heart's palace.

Those shoes are a white canvas begging for your artwork on them. You could draw a black toe with your intricate patterns?

Lexie said...

i'm surprised to see that tunic is 100% silk! i've had quality issues with f21 before (me and the rest of the world, i'm sure), but this seems like a step up!

anne said...

love your heels! i feel the same way about pink, i think it looks quite nice on you though. i really like the print and ruffles :D

i know you've been lovin' capes lately. when you get a chance, come chek out my leather cape/poncho i got a few weeks ago.

Let's call this grown up Alice. Loving it

Vicky said...

The print is beautiful! It's a shame that Forever 21 has the absolute WORST customer service that I have ever encountered. I refuse to shop there.

I love the white shoes with the black tights! great outfit

erin :) said...

i def agree that people are obsessing a lil too much about the movie (personally i dont think lewis carroll meant for the book to turn out like that) but i do like the fashion that comes from it!

and i might be daring enough to say that this is one of my favorite outfits of yours! you look amazinggg in pink and bright colors!!! seriously. :)

thanks for sharing! you are b-e-a-u-tiful!

Love how you styled the entire outfit. It makes me wish (even more) that spring would hurry up and stay in NY and not just tempt us with brief visits of warm weather.

reckless daughter said...

so cute!

PS: I love the Market Publique lookbook! you look absolutely fantastic!

Matilda said...

The print is adorable but I think it would have looked better in other shades like blue or/and green.
But as always you styled it in a wonderful way!

Raquel said...

aw I am in love with your top! I've never been more jealous about you for having f21! :|

Trishna said...

I actually like how you styled this tunic by wearing it as a top instead of with trousers or leggin. The black backdrop of the skirt lets the print shine through very much.

And those heels really seem to be begging for a black cap toe.

Lucky you too. Dandelions in March??

athousandhearts said...

you look lovely, and the way you styled the tunic is definitely better than how they have it on the website. Love your shoes, and you should opt for pink more often :)

Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) said...

Dance To The Door said...

The whole outfit is fantastic! I adore that skirt, but I have a little too much in the hip and rear end department to get away with it. The blouse is lovely, though. The colors, the ruffles, the pattern..just stunning.

Fabiola "Fab" said...

Wow! You're stunning!

Aya Smith said...

Heather Lynn said...

Oh I love this outfit so much! I think the blouse & the heels are my favourite. Really it's just a phenomenal outfit =)

Kimberellie said...

Wow, these pics are absolutely amazing. Such beautiful colours. And this is a fantastic outfit. Just the sort I like to wear!

I think I've figured out what I love about your blog. It is so fanciful. What I mean, is there is an element of romance to it. It is sort of "outside regular life". There you are, all dressed up, OUTSIDE somewhere beautiful, just hanging out. I LOVE that. I think it is a way of life that so many of us long to have!

Fortunately, this way of life is sometimes mine!

What a cool opportunity! Congrats! I love your rings and skirt. I remember seeing it on Modcloth, but seeing it on a person makes me like it even more! I can totally see those shoes with a black cap-toe.
Best wishes.

ana b. said...

I'm so taken with the simplicity of your pretty shoes I've just got to check out the link!

Amelia said...

I love how the ruffle of the shirt looks with the sweater.

Brittany said...

Ok, first off, your hair looks so long & healthy in the last photo! Any tips!?

Secondly.. you always seriously have the most amazing accessories.. mostly the rings! And colors of the blouse? Stunning.

Lastly.. yesterday, for my outfit photos I took that I'm going to post tomorrow, I stood on some rocks by the shore.. all I have to say is, I had trouble doing it w. my boyfriend helping me (I was in heels).. so how the heck do you do it by yourself w. a tripod?!

jenloveskev said...

This outfit is just beautiful. I really like the combo of ruffles in the shirt with the way the skirt falls and creates waves around the bottom. Perfect combo!

haute.teapot said...

soo gorgeous. i love the look of the skirt while you're laying in the grass.
