Vanessa of Nessbow asked myself and a few other bloggers if we’d be interested in doing a blog collaboration by putting together outfits based on our favourite fairy tales. I was excited about the idea, but overwhelmed by what character I could possibly seek inspiration from. TOO. MANY. CHOICES!
While browsing through Ross last week, I came upon this white lace dress with a pleated black bow belt and immediately thought that it would be perfect to base an Alice in Wonderland ensemble around it! But I need to be honest: I’ve never actually read either Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass. AH! I have a copy with both books in it, but every time I attempt to read it I just immediately flip to “Jabberywocky” because that poem is my jam. I know that poem by heart! ❤ And of course I’ve seen and love the animated Disney film.
Anyhow, I found this blue Lily Pulitzer cardigan with crystal buttons for $3.25 the week before at Goodwill! If that’s not a thrift score, then I don’t know what is. I think my outfit would’ve looked better with my black ballet flats, but I’m pretty sure my house ate them because they’ve been M.I.A. for at least a good month. *sigh*
My LeSportsac x Fafi bag is something I’ve had for years. I remember being so excited when I found out about their collaboration! The design Fafi created has a Wonderland feel to it so I felt that it would go perfectly well with my outfit 🙂
What’s your favorite fairytale?
PS: Here’s a video of The Muppets performing “Jabberywocky” 😀

That outfit is gorgeous. And how is it that I’ve never seen that Muppets clip before? Amazing,
Thankies! It’s crazy amazing, isn’t it?! I found it a few years ago on YouTube. By far one of the best things I ever happened upon on the internet 😀
Great thrift score!!!
My favorite fairy tale is also Alice in Wonderland 🙂
I was super excited when I found it! Even if it wasn’t Lily Pulitzer I’d still be very happy about it 🙂
Very cute! And yes, a great thrifting score! That’s a bummer about your black ballet flats, though.
Thank you, Amanda! And I actually JUST found my black ballet flats. They were at the bottom of my closet this whole time! YAAAY 😀
This is so cute! The dress cardigan combo is perfect for Alice.
Thankies, Jenny! ❤

You definitely captured Alice, I love this. 😀 Such a fantastic fairy tale every day outfit, and perfect for this link-up as well. I love your pooch, too. 😉 Great job!
Thank you! Rory’s kind of like my White Rabbit for this outfit post, haha! 😀
