Pinup Couture in Wonderland Starring the Alice Ella

11 May

Many things make me happy in the world.  One of those things is the gloriousness of Pinup Girl Clothing and their lusciously unique designs.  Another thing is Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.  Alice in Wonderland has long been my favorite Disney film.  I remember watching the VHS over and over and over again as a child. I would get so lost in the fantasy world that laid out before me and Alice herself.

Fast forward to a few (ahem) years later and not much has changed.  I still love Alice and the otherworldly world it created.  When I heard that PUG was releasing some new designs into their Fairytale Fantasy collection I was excited.  When I heard that one of those new designs would feature an Alice print?  I lost my shit.  Like, lost it. For real.  I’ll never know for sure but in my own mind I am convinced I was the very first person to order it.  I stalked the site everyday like a psycho and hit buy as soon as I could.

The artwork by the very talented Stephanie Buscema is even more amazing in person.  This dress features Alice falling down the rabbit hole (I mean look at how cute her little face is!), the white rabbit and his trusty pocket watch, a dormouse, little teacups and saucers, the cheshire cat, Mr. Caterpillar and other adorable potions surrounded by a cyclone of flowers and swirlies. The print comes in the Ella Dress which I chose and also in the Doris skirt.

I squealed out loud when I opened up the package.  I ordered the medium and it is a bit snug on me (39-29) but I also ordered a large and that was too loose for my taste so I stuck with the smaller size and am glad I did because as I wore it, it did seem to give a little.

The construction of this dress is beautiful and very flattering.  The top is gathered at the bust and had adjustable straps.  The waist is constructed in a way that sucks you in and then the skirt is just yards of magic. AND there are pockets.  I love pockets, and they are completely hidden.  This dress sold out in most sizes at lightning speed.  There are still some smalls on the site though!  And the good news is they will be restocking soon and you can sign up to be notified when they restock.  It will be worth the wait.

Go off and be wonderful!
