Ruby Slippers

Harvey's x The Wizard of Oz Ruby Slippers Bow Lolita Southern California Belle
 
Feels like the perfect day for a trip to the Emerald City! I'm over the moon that Harvey's has collaborated with WB to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the classic film The Wizard of Oz. From the beautiful costumes to the iconic music, The Wizard of Oz is beloved and has inspired generations of fans over 85 years. I'm so honored that I get to show you a sneak peek of one of the pieces Harvey's will be offering in this collection: the Ruby Slippers Bow Lolita bag.

The Lolita is an extremely popular bag with Harvey's fans but this is actually my first one! The Lolita is a petite handbag made from seatbelts and offers two handles, a detachable and adjustable crossbody strap, ruffle detail on the sides and fully lined interior with a zipper pocket and two open pockets inside. Since this is a Bow Lolita, it also has an adorable bow on the front side of the bag. Harvey's took so much into consideration when turning this Lolita into a Wizard of Oz inspired bag. The seatbelts are a sparkly red, just like the ruby slippers. The charm on the side is of Dorothy with her wicker bag and ruby slippers, the lining is blue gingham with red poppies and the zipper pull at the top of the bag is a ruby slipper. It was obviously designed with love and both Bianca and I will love this bag for a lifetime!

You can shop this bag and the rest of this collection (there is so much more) in store on Saturday, July 20th from 9am-11am. Bianca and I will be there to celebrate this incredible collection! You can RSVP to the event and get more information HERE. If you're not local to southern California, not to worry! There will be a release online as well at www.shopharveys.com on Monday, July 22nd at 8am PST. If you're new to Harvey's, items do sell out within minutes so make sure you make an account ahead of time and have payment information stored so you don't miss out on your favorites!

Barbie Girl

Barbie™ X Unique Vintage Black & White Chevron Stripe One Piece Bathing Suit Southern California Belle
 
Does it get any more summer than a swimsuit?! I'll be honest, I spend very little time in the sun or at the pool. But because I'm a mom with a summer-loving kid, I'll grab a cute suit and enjoy the day in lots of shade with a book. This Barbie x Unique Vintage classic chevron suit is a homage to the original 1959 Barbie doll and perfect for my spooky summer style.

This swimsuit features the classic black and white chevron print with a sweetheart neckline and adjustable and removable straps. The original Barbie suit doesn't have straps but I love that this one includes them if you need them (and I definitely do). I'm wearing a size medium, which is my usual size for Unique Vintage bathing suits. I would say it's a fit for the most part but I wish the suit itself were a couple of inches longer. I have a long torso and usually have a hard time finding one-piece suits that accommodate me. Thanks to the straps, I can wear this suit without worrying about the top riding down.

I decided to pair this suit with some spooky accessories for a cute "I'm at the pool but never in the pool" kind of outfit. These tap shorts from La Femme En Noir are a staple in my closet, especially in summer. I love that they look like a cute skirt but function like shorts. I topped this look off with some Barbie inspired sunglasses and my favorite bat shaped wicker purse. Just because summer makes me sad it doesn't mean that my outfits have to be!

You kind find this suit and the rest of their officially licensed Barbie x Unique Vintage collection in sizes XS-4X.
