DRESS: c/o Unique Vintage BOW: ASOS

The Rose: Just what species or, shall we say, genus are you, my dear?
Alice: Well, I guess you would call me... genus, humanus... Alice.
Daisy: Ever see an alice with a blossom like that?
Orchid: Come to think of it, did you ever see an alice?
Daisy: Yes, and did you notice her petals? What a peculiar color.
Orchid: [sniffing Alice's hair] And no fragrance.
Daisy: [chuckling, as she lifts up one side of Alice's dress] And just look at those stems.

I know, I know - I keep relating my outfits back to Alice in Wonderland, but since I grew up watching the Disney version over and over, things like carefully manicured gardens and roses always lead me back to Wonderland... Standing next to this flower mural, I immediately remembered the part where the flowers turned against Alice and started making fun of her "stems"...!

Unique Vintage really has perfected the art of creating frothy, vintage inspired dresses. The dainty, sheer dotted mesh used for the sleeves and fabric overlay is just darling, and the traditional 50s fit and flare silhouette has my heart!


  1. This dress was made to be worn by you! really love the delicate dotted mesh too :)

  2. That colour is absolutely perfect on you. Gorgeous shots of a gorgeous girl!
