I love "Alice in Wonderland." I love silent films. Therefore, I adore this movie! I swear, I might have had a dream like this once.
Ron and I are having a banquet in celebration of our wedding for our Taiwan relatives and friends on Saturday, so I'm skipping my Legumes of the Week this week. My parents flew in yesterday and brought my wedding qipao (the traditional Chinese dress with the high-necked collar that everyone wishes made them look like Maggie Cheung in "In the Mood for Love") over. I'm wearing that first, and then changing into a 1950s navy blue silk satin dress for the rest of the banquet. It's gorgeous, and I can't wait to show it off -- as long as the photos turn out well! As "Episode Ugly Brown Fabric" on season 5 of Project Runway showed, satin doesn't always photograph well, no matter what the dress looks like. Keep your fingers crossed for me (and my photo album)!
