i’m wearing: h&m peasant blouse, intermix dress (old), topshop flats, tag heuer watch, loft necklace, birchbox bracelet, threads bracelet c/o threads and the bag (harveys disney couture seatbelt bag) was a gift from my mom.

when i was in high school, i was obsessed with the movie “the nightmare before christmas”. in particular, i loved jack & sally. so when my mom & brother went on a disneyland weekend getaway recently, they brought me back this bag. my poor mom was so worried that i wouldn’t like it, that she woke up in the middle of the night to go look at it again before she gave it to me the following day. you guys, it is made completely out of seatbelts!!! you have no idea how sturdy this bag is. and just knowing that my mom & brother were so excited to give it to me makes it one of my favorite things.

p.s. my bag is from the disney couture line but harveys also has regular everyday bags (all made out of seatbelts of course). they even have one that resembles a celine trapeze bag (seen here)!

    love the cut of this dress!!! the front is different & fun!!!
    the way you’ve layered it is a great casual chic look but we can totally see if all dressed up with some shimmer & black tights, making it a great night out look!!!
