Umbrella

Vintage Umbrella Print Dress Bettie Page Shoes Southern California Belle

It's been quite a dark and dreary week, especially for May, so I decided to dress the part.  This amazing vintage dress is one of my newest finds.  A friend of mine was letting it go and I had to claim it as my own.  Made from a lightweight cotton, this dress features the cutest chevron style drop waist, red piping, ties at the shoulders, and a full gathered skirt.  Of course, the best part is the red umbrella print.  It's truly a one of a kind dress that now has a permanent place in my closet!

A few of my girlfriends and I went to the 25th anniversary screening of Beauty and the Beast on Monday.  Not only did we get to watch the original 70mm film, we also listened to a discussion panel with many of the voices, animators, and producers.  It was completely surreal.  Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney movie and being a part of this event was truly a dream come true.  I'm not going to lie, I teared up more than a few times!  The next day I decided it was Bianca's turn to see the movie for the first time.  Again, I cried like a baby watching her react to the movie, much like I did when I saw it 25 years ago.  Being able to share things from my childhood is truly one of my favorite parts of parenting.  I feel like it's passing on a piece of myself to her, so you can imagine the emotions that come with it.  I'm just happy she likes Belle just as much as she does Elsa!
