I'm feeling that "nostalgic warmth" again. Every two months or so, I have to pull out Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette to get my fill of outrageous abundance in all it's forms. I am in love with the soft pastel colors, the hair (and accessories), and the layer upon layer of over the top lux. I'm ready for Spring (and was told that I have "Seasonal Depression Disorder"...) and for the promises it holds. I'm also ready for the wonderfully twisted world of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Below is an interesting mix (in no particular order) of Loves inspired by the two unrelated films...that somehow fit perfectly-and beautifully together.
*By the way...I made that mirror up above. It's soft and has a fuzzy mercury glass feel to it.*
This is my favorite version of the Alice story... A pop-up book by J. Otto Seibold.
(and all of the fabulous '80's music made it just that much better).
This is a swiped YouTube compilation of Marie clips.
The song is What Ever Happened by The StrokesI love this. So much...
The colors in this hair clip are amazing.
I want to wear this to Easter dinner.
This gorgeous piece is just over $850...
...but it opens and you can play with the goodies inside!
A vintage sterling sliver headband-and Alice classic.
I LOVE grey and yellow together.
This reminds me of that transition time when there's still a chance of frost, but the first tulips and blossoms are ready.
One of my favorites in on of my favorite shades.
I would have a ranunculus bouquet by my bed year round if I could.
(Ranunculous symbolize radiant charm, by the way...)
Alice is my favorite Disney movie.
I don't care if I am 28-I would wear this.
