Finally it’s arrived: the COACH Wizard of Oz Collection that takes me all the way back to my childhood. Lions, tigers and bears, oh my!
Ever since I was a *wee* little girl, I have LOVED The Wizard of Oz.
I spent many childhood hours letting my imagination run wild – pretending I was Dorothy on route to the Emerald City with my pals the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion in tow. Never mind that I was actually in the backyard with my dog. Some days, I was skipping to the bus stop as though I was following the yellow brick road. On other occasions, you could find me playing with my Wizard of Oz doll collection or even reading and rereading the book.
Even as an adult, I still consider The Wizard of Oz my favorite film of all time and think of its anecdotal lessons quite often:
- There’s no place like home.
- It’s you that holds the power to change your destiny.
- The best friends are found in the most unlikely places.
- Real courage is facing your fears head on.
- Sometimes you’ve had what you’re looking within you all along.
The COACH Wizard of Oz Collection
And so, when news of a COACH Wizard of Oz collection landed in my inbox a few weeks back – I was elated.
After all, we live in nostalgic times and nothing takes me back to my childhood quite like The Wizard of Oz. Handbags and wallets inspired by the Emerald City, ruby slippers and the yellow brick road? I Stan, I tell ya.
For the collection, COACH partnered up with Warner Brothers to pay tribute to the iconic film in a way that will seriously spice up your everyday attire. The line is also quite versatile and offers collectibles for the Wizard of Oz fan at every price point. From full-sized totes to mini purses, wristlet wallets and even bag charms, there’s something for everyone and prices vary from $195 to $45.
In addition to a great spectrum of prices and items, the COACH Wizard of Oz collection also features a nice array of stylings to suit your preference. There are flashy glittery pieces that are guaranteed to catch the eye of anyone around you. There’s also Coach’s signature brown canvas print topped off with patches of iconic scenes from the film. There are even three classic teddy bear charms, inspired by Dorothy’s trio of best friends. The Wicked Witch of the East even makes an appearance with a snapshot of her trying to snatch the Ruby Slippers right off Dorothy. (We all know how that turned out.)
One thing I do feel the COACH Wizard of Oz collection is missing, sadly, is a reference to Glinda the Good Witch. While she was by no means my favorite character, it would have been nice to see COACH create something reminiscent of her sparkly sweetness. She was cotton candy personified!
Nonetheless, the COACH Wizard of Oz Collection earns a solid A grade in my book! Sure the pieces are a little gimmicky…but who cares. The world is crazy and chaotic. A friendly reminder of your childhood is never a bad thing! I say have fun with it.
