My Own Little Fairytale


“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!” Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Carroll has a point; we’re not the same people that we were yesterday. Yesterday, I was Stevie Nicks. Today, I’m Alice in Wonderland. That’s what I love about personal style; it’s completely what you make of it. Every. Single. Day.

The decided adjectives for this look? Cheeky, colourful, with a little bit of whimsy—and Secret Location helped with that. Walking into the Vancouver boutique, inspiration is inevitable. With every piece I chose to style, I was walking further into my own mini fairytale.

I immediately spotted this eye-catching gingham A.W.A.K.E. dress with bold frilled detailing. Next was an inspired Olympia Le-Tan clutch that every child at heart can appreciate. And then these playful Alison Lou rings that are too cute to boot. I was suddenly my own little character in the the fantastical world of Alice and Wonderland.

All these brands are quirky, striking, and completely my cup of tea (pun intended). Alison Lou, A.W. A. K. E., and many other sparkling brands are exclusively carried by Secret Location in Vancouver.
