Hurry... I only have less than a week to come up and produce a good enough bribe to get Mr. Darcy to keep the kid so I can go see the 3-D version of Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland".
I couldn't care less about the storyline or the fact that the heroine is less of a ditz and more of a rebel... yawn! But I am ready to be enchanted and taken away by the sets, makeup, and wardrobe artistry.
It will be dark and gloomy, but I heard that it won't be gruesome. Good. I'm in. Bring it on...

Love the dress... I think I noticed several versions of it in the trailer
Love the layered rugs.At the risk of aggravating my tennis elbow (thanks Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix!), I might just have to splurge on the $39.99 wii game...
And now... a sneak peek:
I would be remiss if I didn't share this extravagant, and gorgeous bouquet from the Mad Hatter inspired wedding from Veranda.
And of course, the Fashion World wouldn't let this one pass...
" For autumn 2010, Zac Posen created a pre-collection themed “Lewis Carroll meets Paloma Picasso”, and Donatella Versace cited Alice as inspiration for her spring/summer 2010 range of whimsical pastel gowns. In Paris, the Printemps department store has created a suitably fantastical Alice in Wonderland window display: rabbits made from white roses and books as big as buses form the backdrop, while dresses replicating the fairy-tale world and designed specifically for the store by Christopher Kane, Haider Ackermann and, poignantly, Alexander McQueen, hang on rabbit-faced mannequins."
