Alice in Wonderland!

Well..... Just saw the movie, and I hate to dog any artist but.... the dialogue.... was boring,  the few snappy one liners kept the story marginally interesting... on the other hand, it was BEAUTIFUL! One gorgeous visual after the next.... from the Mad Hatter's White Eyelashes to Alice's Joan of Arc ensemble to slay the Jabberwocky. Absolutely fantastic!  Loved the Red Queen's tiny little corseted waist, heart mouth, and waves of blood red hair.... wish the movie was centered around her character.....  loved her maniacal  indifference  to her subjects.

Dialoque aside, I was really inspired by the rich, lavish, and generous amount of color, that went into every frame of this movie.  So, of course I start thinking like a stylist, ..... how does this translate into my world.  What does one wear to tea with the Mad Hatter?  Can I get away with ivory in the White Queen's court?  I can't imagine, the end result, but I know I need accessories, with rich color.  Let's go! 

Well! I guess I can't go wrong with this heart shaped petal brooch,
perfect for my job as design assistant to the Mad Hatter.  


..... And if I must walk through the brambles, in search of tea parties and have deep philosophical chats with a disappearing and reappearing Cheshire cat, I need to do it in this hat.... actually, it would be wonderful if I could get it in white too.... Need something for the white queen's dinner party. 
I also need to invest in some versatile pieces that can go with everything from a Gap tee and denim shorts to hang out with the brothers Dum and Dee, or lunch with Alice... making sure not to eat the cake..... What is that about? Drink me and I'm small, Eat me and I'm huge.  Mmmmm hmmm...... There is an Alice in Wonderland liquid diet product in there somewhere.  Note to self: Email Alice about being the face of 'Get Slim in Wonderland'.  Perfect!  A Collage Necklace!  I have a feeling that in Wonderland, there are no Casual Fridays.... Thank God!
Ohhh.... crochet and ribbon earrings! Bright and whimsical, 
easy 'go to' piece for the unpredictable Wonderland social scene.


God forbid, should Alice be down with H1N1 or the bird flu... there are a LOT of unbelievable species in Wonderland, .... sharing teacups and licking wounds, ..... that's got to keep the clinics busy.... I'm just sayin', if I have to step up and be Champion for the day, I want to wear these sterling silver rabbit earrings, in honor of a certain waist coated rabbit..... Let's face it, most of us get into all the good parties on his coattails.  Snap.
