Malice in Wonderland : A harrowing tale of D&G, Froufiness, and Denim

Froufiness (as my designer friend Nicole from Lobo Mau often says) is now all over the place (thank you, God!) - Like backstage at D&G SS2010, where it was toned down with denim. I think this is really inspiring and really do-able! I am definitely going to try this look, when Philadelphia's Ice Age thaws out a little.


Mia Wasikowska, from Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie, perfectly channels the look in the glossy pages of Marie Claire, which is both edgy and ridiculously girly. Again, this is probably one of my favorite trends because it means I can wear my motorcycle boots 24/7.

  1. I love the super girly-ness of the dresses and skirts mixed with the tougher accents. Fantastic!

  2. I think it may be time for me to bite the bullet and buy some fabulously expensive motorcycle boots. studded, preferably, regardless of the fact that "studs are dead". psh.

  3. psh, bedazzling will come back eventually. the fashion circle never stops turning.

  4. Love this look. It's feminie and flirty without being over-the-top, thanks in part to the denim. I can't wait to see your interpretation. Lovely blog!

  5. I really like this look! I'm going to try it too.



Thanks for Sharing the Love!
