Over the past week I've been reading chapters from the original Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland book to my daughter. At times I wondered how it was ever considered a children's book with all the absurdities both in language and in plot but somehow it managed to hold her attention and mine as well, if not for the story, for the imaginative and ridiculous costuming. The soldiers made of cards, the rose tree made red by paintbrush, the mad hatter (fabulous hat!), the extreme makeup and random proportions. Fashion has most definitely been influenced by its charms. You may be as well... check it out on March 5th when it hits theaters.

  1. I am on the waitlist at the Lib for the book. Never read it so thought I would read it to the kids and then have some clue when I see the movie.
