If Alice and Wonderland were to ever become ‘lost’ in Australia, I would really hope it would be whilst wearing an outfit rather similar to this one.
An outfit both whimsical and feminine, but, with the addition of gumboots,* also very practical for climbing down rabbit holes and the like. On the topic of Alices, I’m rather convinced that Alice McCall is currently Australia’s shining beacon of designer light, at least in my eyes. With an emphasis on beautiful lace, prints and original designs, I was thrilled to finally purchase a few of her creations at the brand’s warehouse sale late last year. Here’s a little glimpse of the first – something I could even happily get married in (much) further down the track. I particularly love the bell-sleeves, which I’ve seen popping up more and more regularly as of late. Although I was convinced bell-bottom trousers were going to make a re-appearance in the near future, perhaps I was focusing on the wrong body part? Thoughts?
*’Wellingtons’ for the more refined amongst us.
