Marvelous Mondays in Wonderland

 Today I am back for another installment of Marvelous Mondays; this is a fashion challenge between myself and 4 other bloggers. Our philosophy: Monday is nobody's favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We're on a  mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!
Today's challenge was based upon a fictional character. After much debate, I chose Alice in Wonderland. It was basically between that, or Carrie Bradshaw-Alice obviously won. Be sure to check out everyone else's post, links will be provided at the bottom.


Dress: Lane Bryant. Blazer: Walmart. Shoes: LEI. Belt: Torrid. Necklace: Fashion Bug. Earrings: Fuego.


My take on Alice in Wonderland, clearly was not meant to be a literal replication, but rather a more fancy, adult inspiration. I was going to put a collard shirt underneath the dress, but none of them really looked quite right; so I decided to go with a collar necklace. This dress is puffy like the one in the Disney Alice in Wonderland, which is what made me go with it. And of course Alice wears mary janes in this version. The jacket however comes from the Tweedle Twins on the Tim Burton movie. I had fully intended upon wearing a black sequined bow headband, but could not find it for the life of me!

  1. I like your grown-up iteration! Plus the dress and blazer are fantastic pieces on their own, but they're amazing together!

  2. Yes! I was so hoping some would go all Alice. I really like your interpretation because it draws from all the different versions and yet is totally grown up and doesn't look "costumey".

    I adore that jacket and the shoes are just perfect. :)

  3. You look amazing! I love your Alice-inspired outfit, the dress is beautiful and the jacket dresses it down (black lace can be very fancy!) perfectly.

    1. Thanks, I totally agree. A dress like this is hard to wear on a daily basis since it does seem so dressy.
