Stash: Hot Air Balloon

5.19.2009

They're here! The summer charms have officially hit boutiques! First stop on the list? A sweet minty green and pink hot air balloon, complete with a puppy captain.

Stock photos never do a charm justice, and in this case mine don't either. It's a very ornate and dainty piece. I think the detail is exceptional and the weave pattern on the basket is something to admire. The flowers and pave banner might be a little frilly for some of you, but the whole thing reminded me of some sort of May Day celebration. The bezel-set crystals along the side are also a creative interpretation - they remind me of the sandbags that you sometimes would see on the side of a hot air balloon.

It's hard to say whether this will have a chance to make it to the outlets or not. If I had to bet I would say it will.. it truly is adorable, but for the price I think a lot of people may wait on it. Especially since there's far more buzz for the pretzel & the panda!

Price: $58.00 MSRP
Box: Brown/Pink
Code: YJRU2988
Season: Summer 2009
From: Juicy Couture
Misc.: Made in China, not intended for children under 12.

I love this charm, even though I know it wasn't one of the better received ones (like the panda & pretzel) it completely does it for me. It reminds me of Wizard of Oz for some reason, and I imagine the yorkie in the ballon as Toto, ha!

Haha Tup, that's such a cute image! You're so right.. it is very Wizard of Oz!
