Alice in Wonderland and our Autumn Winter Collection 2017

Delighted to reveal a few images from our Autumn Winter collection for 2017.
Its inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the tale by Lewis Carroll.
Ive always been fascinated by the story, its the land of make believe and things don't make sense a lot of the time, which is just perfect! There's quite a number of versions of the book here, I did a post on it a few years ago and the illustrations have always been different in through the years. Alice has had blond hair, brown hair, different outfits but mostly the blue. Tim Burton's wonderful movie gave the story such life with his colourful and faithful interpretation.


I have included a few Alice prints in my collection and have made my own version of a modern Alice (it is awaiting photographing this week!)



This needlecord colour and fabric for me is an Alice colour! Its a heavier feel fabric and the colour is perfect for Autumn and Winter. Could be layered up with a choice of tights and tops.


This is a hessian feel fabric, a linen cotton mix with an Alice print.

This stunning Alice print is by the Rifle paper company and is exquisite up close, the gold!


The needlecord skirt , with grey leaf top and matching felt hairband.



 Possibly the most traditional of the Alice prints, vibrant and fun!

All available on our website

Beautiful photography thanks to AMC Photography Cork

Thanks for reading and hope you are a fan of Alice!

Unicorn and Rainbow Parties

Hello,

I have had a number of unicorn dresses in my collections for the last couple of years. And they are popular! There are so many amazing unicorn parties ideas online that I have to share a few of my favourite.

 SS17 Pegasus dress


Magical dress in white and pink
All images to follow are from pinterest.


The cake is amazing! But way beyond my baking skillset. Both the confetti and paper tassels are within most budgets!


Very pretty ideas above, lots of pastel goodness.


The cutest little goody bags, and the table cover even has a unicorn print. 


Paper straws add a lovely touch to these drinks


Spray painted mason jars and pastel confetti with some beautiful flowers make a lovely centrepiece



Speaks for itself!

More stunning makes. The drip cake with wings, cake of dreams!
I hope you enjoyed these ideas and you'll find more here ideas/https://www.pinterest.com/lollipopsday/girls-party-ideas/
