Curiouser and Curiouser!

Alice: "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

Bonjour all!

March 5 will be a very important day! And why you may ask?

One of my most adored childhood tales is being brought to life with the magic touch of Tim Burton's vision, Alice In Wonderland.
How I used to dream that one day I may fall into my own rabbit hole, and awake to a world quite unlike my realistic own.
So, not only will I watch the film on premiere day in 3D, but I have also picked up my invitation to a most spectacular event that very night: The Alice in Wonderland Fundraiser and Cocktail Night.
What a day this will be, a whole day filled with Alice in Wonderland.
I love what they did for the invitation!
The backside:
It would take place at the Hart House Music Hall (which is a perfect setting for this affair) in which formal attire and costumes are welcome... you know what this means- I shall definitely dress up, channelling the spirit of Alice and her enchanting world.
I already had something in mind with the dress which is ballerina-inspired and I found something to put in my hair (thanks to Anthropologie)!

What's great about this event is that it has a noteworthy cause tied to it. The event is raising money for Children's Literacy Canada. They would also be offering beautifully illustrated special edition Alice in Wonderland print sets of five iconic moments within the story, as well as t-shirts! I think I will pick both up as portions of the sales of the t-shirts and prints will be donated to Children's Literacy.

So not only would it be a whimsical and fun affair, but also doing something great for the love of reading as well. What could be more grand than that?
I know I won't be late for this very important date!

That's all for now, ciao!
