Just call me Alice...

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

When I first zipped up this dress it instantly said Alice in Wonderland to me.. the dusky cornflower blue colour teamed with the white piping and the double peter pan collar.. well I love a peter pan collar as much as the next girl but double anything is always better in my book! :)
This dress is by a brand called Dahlia, now they have been on my rader for awhile. The sweet shapes, vintage style prints and sugary feminine quality called out to me..literally everything from their site I want in my wardrobe!
I didnt wanna take away from the little details on this dress, so I teamed it with some spotty navy tights and my trusty pink bow belt. Although if it had been warmer I think it would look great with my white opaque knee high socks.

  11. You styled this just perfectly...I agree, the details of the dress are fabulous. But I think choosing the polka dots and pink bow and hot air balloon just upped the whimsy ante :) Love the look, dear!

  14. The dress looks lovely... but I know those chest pockets would do my large-ish chest no good! I love Dahlia but I must admit I find their prices a little steep.

  23. It IS an adorable dress...although, I ordered a dress by the same brand from ASOS and it was made so cheap! It was a disappointment, especially because their prices are not on the cheap side.
