Down the rabbit hole we go...

Tuesday, October 13, 2009


I have always loved Alice in Wonderland, I studied it for my Art project in school, then again in my final year of my fashion degree I made my dresses based on the talking flowers in Alice in Wonderland. Now Im so excited by Tim Burton's version coming out next year that everywhere I look I see Alice inspired fashion accessories!
Thought id share some with you..



'Drink me'



Alice: "It was much pleasanter at home, when one wasn't always growing larger and smaller, and being ordered about by mice and rabbits."


'Eat Me'
Alice band


Mad Hatter; "No wonder you're late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow."

I thought these shoes were very Alice but maybe they are more the Queen of hearts kinda shoes?
Queen of hearts: "Who's been painting my roses red? WHO'S BEEN PAINTING MY ROSES RED? /Who dares to taint / With vulgar paint / The royal flower bed? / For painting my roses red / Someone will lose his head."


Mad hatter: "If you don't care for tea, you could at least make polite conversation!"


Bottle necklace: ASOS, Apple clutchbag: River Island, Alice band: Designer Eugena Kim Liliana, pocket watch necklace: ilovecutiepie.com, shoes: Mellisa for Vivienne Westwood, Vintage style teapot: Bombayduck.com.


With Christmas coming up all these items will definitely be on my list! :)

Just like to thank all my followers and everyone who stops by and leaves a comment, means the world to me, you've no idea. So Thank you. xxx

Ill leave you with my favourite quote from Alice in Wonderland....


"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

  14. Hey vicky,
    I know, it's so stupid and really frustrating, especially because one of the sites doesn't have any place to report this kind of stuf. But I guess that's just the 'risk' of putting yourself out on the internet..

    That's so nice that you work at a magazine, what's it called? I'm definately interested in being interviewed! And I really don't need or expect to be paid for it, just a link to my blog would be nice!
    You can find my e-mail in my profile if you want to discuss it further, if it doesn't work just let me know!
    x, yara

  15. Oh I love Alice! I'm excited for the movie too, just a bit afraid of what Tim Burton will do to it with such a huge budget. Trying to stay optimistic though!

    Thanks for the comment!

  20. Oh, love the purse and shoes!

    On my DIY jeans, I just sew the seam and leave it. You can't even tell that there is an extra flap when you look at them. Hope that makes sense...

  24. Just discovered your blog - love it! I've coveted that apple clutch for a good few months but figured as I tend to haul my entire life around with me, it may be a tad small! And those VW shoes are divine.

    Look forward to your next post.

    PS. Love the orange hair! Fiery. :)
