So in anticipation for the movie release of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland on March 5th and this past Valentine's weekend, I am making this blog all about HEARTS and the color RED!

I can't wait to see Helena Bonham Carter as the Queen of Hearts and Johnny Depp is sure to add a twist to the Mad Hatter.  To my knowledge, this is not a re-make of Alice in Wonderland but a sequel, where she returns to Wonderland as a young adult ready to discover her true purpose to her double life in this other world.

I wonder what new adventures she will find in this Wonderland!

So in honor of the movie, I pulled a few items from my wardrobe that
were reminiscent of the Queen of Hearts! 

    This is one of my favorite cropped jackets I just got over my Christmas Holiday in London.  Thanks to my boyfriend Matt and his mom Clare, who surprised me with it after I drooled / fawned over it in a vintage shop.    It is black and white tweed wool with red trim and by Miss Feraud.  I am guessing it's from the 1960's.  I wore it with my black knit mini dress I have had forever from Zara's
and my favorite red wool hat that I literally wear everyday.

Here is another pic I did a little photoshop sketch effect to....
I could maybe be in a modern storybook...ummmmm well maybe not:)

This is my new heart necklace from my mom for Valentine's Day!  She sent it over a week ago and it finally came on Tuesday.... NYC mail, that happens.  The heart is made from glass, and the necklace is made from different kinds of red ribbon.  It is so colorful and fun, I had to have something fun to wear with it.  If only I had worn this on Valentine's day....


oh yes---a special thanks to Matt, my loving, considerate boyfriend who took the time to be my photographer despite all of my critiques!

Welcome to Planet Gaga

Ok so last night, I watched the 2010 Grammy's. The Grammy's is my favorite award show. Not only do I love, love love music....I love, love, love CRAZY fashion. Everyone was waiting in anticipation to see what Lady Gaga would wear.....and in my opinion she made an incredible statement as always. Created by Armani, she appeared at the Grammy's, beamed down from Planet Gaga. I am curious to know what these dresses are made out of, because they are definitely not from planet earth! I pulled these images from Check out this site for more crazy Gaga and Grammy photos!

I will have to say, I felt sorry for the guy sitting behind her......his view was slightly obstructed:)

So in honor of Planet Gaga and the out-of-this world theme, I thought I would post a few costumes I made while in school.

Do you think this is Gaga-esque? It is made from white, black. and grey duct tape and screen material you use for windows. All purchased at Ace Hardware.

This I like to call my "Mushroom" dress. It is make from novelty fabrics, stuffed with poly-fill for shape.

Using Lady Gaga as a muse, you can go crazy!! Maybe I should break one of these looks out for Halloween next year!

Before, I end this post, I wanted to highlight a blog I have just discovered called, Clothes, Cameras, and Coffee. I not only love this blog for the title, Roz has very interesting posts, not only insightful when it comes to fashion and art, but life too. Visit her blog to see all of her DIY fashion projects. She definitely inspired me.
