Channeling AliceOriginally uploaded by Peldyn
With the new Tim Burton movie set to come out next year it seems that all I can think about is Alice. The trailer just whetted my appetite for her gothic blue sweetness. I picked up this silk cotton blouse from Forever21 to help stave off the hunger for all that is Alice blue. It's puffed sleeves and shirred waist evoke another time and seem so very right. I paired it with a full black skirt, spectator oxford shoes and a little antique tapestry purse that belonged to my great-grandmother. My cat is a shoo in for Dinah *grin*
Artfire has a few shops that offer items that have an Alice in Wonderland theme. Maybe you can pick up some gothic goodness of your own.

Gothic Black Lace Cuffs by maryandangelika
Poppy Longstockings Nautical Stripe by Poppy Clothing Creations
Quietly Waiting Hand Painted Accent Table by MadTeaPartyFurniture
The last is not clothing, but this shop is full of the most wonderfully Alice in Wonderland style furniture that all I could do was squeal with delight as I looked at each item! I want EVERYTHING!
Let me know how you have expressed your "inner" Alice. I am sure I am not the only one captivated by this trend.
