ALICE IN WONDERLAND T-SHIRT (Truly Madly Deeply via Zipper), TULLE SKIRT (H&M), random TIGHTS with a hole in them (oops), OVERKNEES WITH LITTLE BOWS (River Island)
I went on a shopping trip to Amsterdam with a friend, and it was absolutely great. It's so nice to go shopping with someone who likes clothes as much as you do, and can keep it up for as long as you can (we walked for, I don't know, seven hours straight?), and makes the same squeals when faced with a gorgeous piece of clothing - in other words, who is as much a shopaholic as you are. We had to walk through a thunderstorm, with the rain pouring down and our umbrellas flipping over all the time, which actually felt quite adventurous. We both found our perfect prom outfits - I'm not going to tell what they look like yet, of course; got to keep that element of surprise, right?
I also found the Alice in Wonderland shirt shown above, which I love because Alice has always been one of my favourite books (I read it so many times when I was little, and I still pick it up now and again). The print features one of the original Alice illustrations by John Tenniel, which I did some googling on and have quite an interesting story behind them (you can read a little bit about it here).
I also found these shoes. Actually, Vera found them, in this great vintage shop in Amsterdam called Laura Dols (if you visit Amsterdam and are into ballgowns, chique accessories, and quirky stuff, you have to go there) but they were my size. They're a bit odd, very Mary Poppins and I love the color:
(The stripey shirt and tights are H&M and I borrowed the tutu skirt from my sister - she found it in the H&M children's section.)
In completely unrelated news: I'm done with finals (yay!) so Summer holidays have officially started, and my hair is already turning blonder:
That's all for now! I'll update with my prom outfit in two days. I hope you have a very, very nice week!
