“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.
