The Red Dress from Alice in Wonderland

The Dress from Alice in Wonderland 2010

I wasn’t personally a huge fan of the 2010 Alice in Wonderland movie, I know a lot of people were. And if you want to dress like Alice in Wonderland, grab up one of the cool outfits now. I think my favorite Alice dress is the shirt, traditional one. Of course, the red dress is also fun.

Don’t forget we have also have a modern spin on How to Dress like Alice and a modern spin on How to Dress like Dorothy.

Modern Spin: How to Dress Like Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ

how to dress like dorothy

Here’s our post about How to dress like Dorothy, and it’s full of twists on the tradition that you expect. I was lucky to come across a dress (which inspired this entire piece – which otherwise wasn’t going to happen because I was so intent on first covering Alice in Wonderland after finally watching the recent Tim Burton movie) named after Dorothy herself. It has the perfect blue gingham pattern, but it doesn’t look dowdy.

For the shoes, I didn’t pick sparkly ones. Gasp! I instead picked a pair that was a little more flexible on theme, and wouldn’t make you look like OH HI, I AM WEARING A COSTUME TODAY. So they have just a bit of a heel, and are red maryjanes. I love them! Dorothy carries around a picnic basket, but how stylish is THAT? For the bag I picked a woven, tan-colored piece. And then there are two necklace options which feature either Toto or a bicycle (remember the beginning of the movie?)

Another suggestion to incorporate is bypassing the movieR ... Read More

Modern Spin: How to Dress Like Alice (In Wonderland!)

dress like alice in wonderland

So you wanna know how to dress like Alice in Wonderland, eh? Perfect! I only recently watched the 2010 version, and found myself a bit underwhelmed by it all. Maybe I’d hyped it up in my head too much? Either way, this is a beloved book series for many reasons. And when it comes to dressing like an iconic Alice in Wonderland, the one thing you must have is a blue dress!

I found two blue dresses that I both really liked for our Alice look, so I included them both. They both have a youthful spirit with lace accents. There’s a white rabbit for you on a pencil case, a teacup from the Mad Hatter’s tea party on a chain to wear as a necklace, and my favorite two items: a canvas bag with the Cheshire cat, and a pair of perfect black flats with bows on them.

If you wear some of these items, you’ll surely let other fans know you’re broadcasting your love for Alice. Try petting a pet cat and reading under a tree for the full effect. If you see a white rabbit, chase it! Keep your adventurous spirit well in tact at all times.

"Red Riding Hood" (1865) John Everett Millais (1829-1896) English Oil on canvas

Here’s our fun piece on how to dress like the infamous, and incredibly brave, Little Red Riding Hood. And – gasp – we don’t even have a red cape in the mix! Nope. Because do you really want to wear a COSTUME? Nu uh. We looked at some red jackets, coats, capes, capelets and even bolero’s – but nothing looked quite right.

"Red Riding Hood" (1865) John Everett Millais (1829-1896) English Oil on canvas

This is a fall/winter look – and could easily be paired with the red coat of your choice. If you stick to the colors red with a black and gray, or browns – you’ll do fine. Accessorize with some wolf jewelry – we found a cute gold ring wolf ring that looks a little ferocious. With snazzy red lips you’ll be channeling a powerful feeling. The studded gloves seemed very fairytale to me, ... Read More
