Film Fashion – Top 10 Alice in Wonderland Girls Fashion and Accessories

As we know, Alice Through the Looking Glass is in UK cinemas now. It has not, sadly, proved to be a popular sequel. Which is a shame, as it is so beautiful to look at and has such a brilliant cast. Having my very own Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee I am a big fan.

BUT where the film has failed, fashion has succeeded. There are a few brands getting in on the Alice in Wonderland thing, even when the film-going public are not! Now anyone that knows me or reads my blah, knows that Licensed Product makes me a little bit sick in my mouth. But these brands have got the balance between Licence and Style right. Here are my Top 10 picks:

May the Fifth Be With You

Happy May the 5th. The Tuesday that feels like a Monday, that is so depressing after a lovely, long weekend. However – I’m here to cheer you up! Star Wars fever is building! The new trailer is out. It’s…well, I suppose super exciting to those people who love Star Wars. But whatever. What I’m super excited about, is that as of yesterday – May 4th, Star Wars Day – the amazing – and let me tell you when I say amazing – I MEAN it – Courage and Kind Star Wars collection launched in Harrods.

Star Wars Harrods Disney Kids Fashion (14)

Now I am a mother of girls. I’m happy that way. Happy in our pink, glittery universe. Except – when I went to the launch of Courage and Kind – a brilliant new brand in association with Disney.

Now, I had low expectations naturellement – I mean has anyone ever seen stylish licensed clothing??? Anyhow, I went to the launch to see their first two collections – one for Cinderella and one for Star Wars – and the Star Wars one in particular – blew me into style orbit. And then made me pine for a boy! Look….

Cinderella-ella-ella

Cinderella is how I feel in my house sometimes. We replace the wicked step-mother with the busy husband, and the ugly sisters with my naughty twins and BOOM – I’m Cinders. Everyone’s go-to slave. But I digress…

CINDERELLA

Unless you have been living under some stone – you will know that Disney have been very busy creating a brand new live-action feature inspired by the classic fairytale, “Cinderella” starring Cate Blanchett as the evil step mother. Here she is at the Premiere. Clearly in nice actress mode.

The film is released on 27th March in the UK and as if the film itself is not enough of a draw – Frozen Fever – the new short created as a follow-up to Frozen, will be shown before. To warm the audience up, so to speak. This is one kids cinema visit I am beyond excited for!!!! And there’s more!

Cool characters

Normally I would balk at the idea of a character ANYTHING, but Little Eleven Paris know how to make character merchandise chic. And for this season they have added some wash bags and duffles to the collection.

It’s a WIN WIN situation – the kids will be happy because what child doesn’t LOVE a bit of Disney, and us stylish parents are happy, as it’s not vomit-inducing – in fact – quite the opposite! LOVE. Perfect for sleepovers or holidays, they are made in a cotton jersey blend with a chunky zip closure.  Now for the difficult part..OH how to choose.. will it be the girly Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck…
