Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

– Alice in Wonderland.

I really, really love the story of Alice in Wonderland. The whole idea of tumbling down a rabbit hole into an upside-down world of talking flowers and size-altering biscuits sounds incredible. Naturally, I love it when any of my outfits even mildly remind me of my favourite old stories, let alone Alice (if you read Lost in the Haze during my first days of blogging you might remember my Red Riding Hood or Cinderella posts). It really doesn’t take much to want to dress up like a book character. After all, my mother was a librarian, so what can I say – it’s in the family!

The start of spring didn’t quite have in mind what I thought it would.. I ride past the gardens almost daily on the bus, and it looks as though they are bursting with blossoms. But once we ventured inside it was hard to find any form of flower. Not that it really mattered; tip-toeing through overgrown paths in such a delicately embroidered dress (by Chicwish) made me feel just like Alice. Well, gazing down at the white rabbit & Alice rings I was wearing probably helped too! ; )

  3. arghh, this post!! it’s so lovely and ethereal- the picture of the spider’s web! so great.

    I’m loving that gorgeous dress, too. I’m always wary of buying anything from Chicwish because their stuff seems to be made for small and delicate creatures… but the dresses are so beautiful! maybe I’ll cave and try it out.

  4. ohmigod what a great post! that dress is sooo pretty and those rings!!! I want them! I have a fascination with Alice in Wonderland too!
