I have a confession to make. With the exception of a slight loop thrown by Week 3's electric indigo color, I've really not had a tough time with the colors so far. Frankly I've quite enjoyed them!!
Alice in Wonderland has long been one of my favorite stories and so when I saw this week's color, my first impulse was to go full blown frills, ruffles, petticoats and bows. But then I came up for air and thought...hmmm...what about if I take Alice back through the looking glass to her own time and she's all grown up now? Maybe a young professional?...still with that air of innocence, but a grown-up now?
I found this sweater quite by accident. I was out window shopping when I walked past it and my eyes were drawn immediately. First. it's a sweater, and you all know my love for sweaters, second it was the most perfect shade of pale pale blue ever. I didnt even bother browsing my inventory first to see if I already had something in Alice Blue...I bought the sweater on the spot and skipped home to create my look.
I've been doing dresses for the past few weeks and so I decided straight away that I wanted slacks for this look. I admit it was not without its giggle inducing moments that decision. I had to fight my natural gravitation towards skirts as I browsed my closet. I'd say..."ooo..pretty skir...demmits...pants Aeva, pants...focus girl!"
I found this slightly vintage pinstriped pair from Coco in the perfect shade of grey in the back of my closet...perfect compliment to the sweater and really kept the look I was going for.
My favorite pair of peep toes from Maitreya and a few strands of blue pearls and I was ready for my trip. The last item I grabbed were the silver glasses the Mad Hatter gave to me one day at our afternoon tea. They are without a doubt my most prized possession and I cherish them most deeply.
