RachSpeed in Wonderland

Sunday, April 4, 2010

Due to the hype of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, I decided that my outfit today will be "Alice" inspired. As a kid, I always loved Alice in Wonderland, and I always thought Alice always looked so magical in her bright blue dress and mary-janes. So taking from a childhood inspiration, I decided to create the look myself!

Inspiration: Alice, In the Disney Cartoon

For makeup, I opted for simple clear skin, winged liner and a red lip. Classic, and went with the retro look. I also had wavy-curly hair, which was supposed to look soft and tousled. OH! And I almost forgot, a bold brow (although, doesn't look to bold in this photo)! I love the look of full brows. Check it out!

My Alice Makeup Look

To make this more my taste, I chose a dress with princess sleeves and a hem on the shorter side- but the skirt still flounces out like the original dress. I wore a black headband, and some MARNI mary-jane pumps. As an accessory, or if I were to were this on the street, I would bring this vintage silver clutch. This outfit is modern, with the high waisted skirt of the dress and the high heel of the shoe - but still has a retro feel; the collar, the headband, the clutch. The biggest goal however, was to try to make this look take from the inspiration, without it being too costumey.

it's Rachspeed in wonderland!
