Allison in Wonderland

by Lee Oliveira on September 21, 2010

How could I not miss this look coming down the sidewalk. Her name is Allison and I caught her coming back from her lunch break. As soon as I saw her, I was reminded of Alice in Wonderland. Something about her was calling me. Perhaps her platinum blond hair along with her red dress and red lips got my attention.

I have always loved red on a girl. I think it screams confidence and this look is definitely not for the shy. She was a little bit hesitant at first to get her photo taken but once I chatted to her a little, she relaxed and by the end she loved the attention.

Thanks Allison, you brightened my day.

I love her hair, especially her rolled bangs. Her dress is so vintage and the red ribbon caught my attention, very chic.

I think that’s so cool that you go up to strangers and ask them for pictures. I’m way too shy for that lol! She seems adorable and yes I agree red looks great on most chicks 😀

Nice outfit and image shot. Due to her glencheck pattern dress and the hair do, I have more the impression, she comes right out of the 50`s rockabily time.
