Well it's official, the world and I have gone as Mad as a Hatter (ha ha, did you see what I did there? Oh, you did...) for Alice in Wonderland. Who else is excited about seeing the film? It looks amazing.
I'm not only excited about seeing the film, I'm also excited about all the Wonderland loveliness that is about at the moment - the clothes, accessories and even make-up. I succombed to the hype a few months ago when I treated myself to OPI's Alice in Wonderland inspired collection.
Not readily available in the UK, the easiest and cheapest place to buy them is Ebay. The Alice collection comes in four gorgeous colours, from left to right - Off With Her Red!, Mad as a Hatter, Absolutely Alice and Thank You So Muchness.
My favourite is Absolutely Alice which is just the most amazing, sparkliest blue. Honest, I couldn't stop staring at my nails once I had applied it (it does need a few coats though).
Then of course there is the much sought after and lusted over Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows which naturally I had to order immediately from Debenhams. (I believe this is now sold out everywhere folks, although do try your local Debenhams instore, you never know).
I believe that this Book of Shadows actually repeats a lot of existing Urban Decay colours, just with different names so it's well worth checking that you are not duplicating before you splurge your £28. For reference there is a good blog post about this here.
This week I also discovered the Magical Tea Party range at Accessorize which has some very lovely Alice inspired items. I adore the bow hairbands.
Also the Disney Couture/Tom Binns Alice in Wonderland range appeared on my radar. It's truly lovely and I'm just not sure I will be able to resist the urge to buy something. Range is available from ASOS, Spoiled Brat and Truffle Shuffle amongst others.
I received an email from Miss Selfridge yesterday about their Alice inspired t-shirt range and other items (which was very frustrating when I had no broadband connection and the iPhone still doesn't support Flash). I finally got to look at it this afternoon. I believe not everything is featured online at the moment, so make sure to check back!
There are many many other places to look for Alice in Wonderland inspired goodies. How about this Cheshire Cat pendant from Swarovski?
Or these gorgeous heart shoes from Irregular Choice?
and there are more fabulous t shirts at Truffle Shuffle.
And finally, if you are in London any time soon, don't forget to check out Claire's Wonderland, a magical mystery world where you can also buy some of Claire's Alice themed accessories. The store is on Maddox Street (just off Regent Street) but be quick it's only open until March 5th.
So, tell me, will you be going to see the film or treating yourself to any Wonderland goodies?
love & kisses
