Alice

Fashion Challenge: Day 140
Last night I watched Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and even though I have seen it several times before, it sucks me in every time. From the costumes to the acting to the myriad of fantastical characters -- including a talking hound -- I am so enamored of the action on screen that I just sit, abandoning my phone and laptop, and watch.

The dress I'm wearing today is also sort of "Alice" in nature, with it's wild, colorful pattern and cut-out shoulders. From BCBGMaxAzria, this Geometric Print Dress also reminds me of my mom, because she bought it for me a few years ago after I mentioned I could not get it online. She is always doing sweet things like that... I love my mom so much!

The dress also made an appearance on one of our favorite shows, The Big Bang Theory. Danica McKellar, whom you most likely know as Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years, wore it during a guest appearance on the show. The episode was called "The Psychic Vortex," and that really sort of sums up the design of the dress.

I paired the dress with my light blue Stuart Weitzman Rollpump Peep-Toes and black Michele bag. It's a little chilly in Atlanta today, with highs only in the lower 60s, so it's odd to have a jacket with me. I love my Juicy Couture green jacket with the apple buttons, but the buttons are so heavy that they are constantly falling off. I have a little pile I need to bring to my mom to show me how to sew them back on. :)
