Enchanted Bikinis is a faniciful, new swimwear line by designer Sina. Sina is a French designer who has been inspired by fairy tales. She wants women to be able to feel like a princess while wearing her bikinis. She does have a fairly lofty goal of $24,800 with less than a month to complete. So, we need to get on this now. Watch her above video about how she came up with the idea, her families wonderfully positive influence and the quality of her garments.

Obviously, as a Disney nut, I’m super jazzed bout these bikinis. Now, there are mass produced fairy tale inspired bikinis out now. However, these promise to be made in America, on a much small scale, and of amazing quality.

BTW-if you aren’t familiar with Kickstarter. It’s practically the grandaddy of crowdfunding. That’s when all of us out there make each other’s artistic dreams come true. I haven’t donated to any fashion based Kickstarter’s in a while and this one is definitely a must.

There are a ton of really cool backer rewards available. Backer rewards are what you receive in exchange for your donation to a Kickstarter project. For just $15, you can receive adorable sandals, for $25 a tote, for $35 a beach dress, or for $60 all of the above.

Now what about the bikinis? Well, $100 donation gets you one bikini, $250 gets you 3 of the 5 bikini styles and $450 gets you all 5 bikinis plus the sandals, dress, and tote.

If you decide to donate and choose a bikini, the sizes are limited to S-XL (A-DD), but I bet if the company takes off her range will improve. Since not everyone matches on the top and bottom, you do get a choice to mix and match sizes.

What styles are the bikinis themselves?

Sugar Plum (a very Rapunzel style)

Golden Rivers (a very Pocahontas style)

Seashell (a very Ariel style)

What is Golden Tote?

Golden Tote is a monthly fashion service. Unlike most monthly bags, boxes or crates, you are only charged if you login and make a purchase. New styles are released (at least) monthly, though. You can purchase a $49 small tote, a $99 surprise tote or a $149 large tote. Shipping is free if you spend at least $149.

The cool thing about this service is that it’s curated. This means that if you choose the small tote, you can choose one tote item and then they pick a surprise item for you, based off of your style profile. For the $149 tote, you choose two items and then receive 3 or 4 more that are surprises. The $99 tote is 4 surprises.

Stylists also work off of your notes. So if you absolutely love maxis, let them know! You can even mention surprises by name and they will try to get you them, if they are available. You can also buy additional items from their boutique. If you buy them while getting a tote, then they may be offered at a great discount.

If you would like to join Golden Tote, click here. (Please note: This is a referral link. If you purchase through my link, then I get a $10 credit towards my purchase.) Now, these are just my personal favorites. There are many other styles available this month.

Totes go on sale on the first Monday of the month. So, August’s sale launches on Monday, August 3rd at 12PM EST. Hop on ASAP to get your size in your favorites.

Relaxed Midi Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $46
Add-on price: $35

in blue, green, or pink

I wasn’t even sure that I was going to include this dress, at first. It’s a bit boxy for my shape. However, I love this shade of pink. Plus the exposed zipper back is so Bridget Fonda being cool in the 90s. I really wish it came in black as well. That would be amazeballs. I do love the length, yes it’s a midi, great for us shorties out there. It is 100% polyester and is lined to mid thigh. This is listed as being true to size and the chest measurements seem to confirm that: small 34″, medium 36″, and large 37″.

puella dest dr pnk

puella dest dr gr

Puella Destination Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $78
Add-on price: $40

in green/white stripe, black, or mauve/olive stripe

I’m not usually in the OMG Puella crowd. However, the draping design in pink is fantabulous! It is 61% polyester, 33% rayon, and 6% spandex. It’s listed as running true to size. Measurements aren’t currently available, but going by the size that the model is wearing, I’d say that it runs a bit large.

island getaway dr blu

island getaway dr red

Island Getaway Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $52
Add-on price: $40

in red or teal

This is super cute in teal. This really would be cool for a cruise or the beach. I think it would be nice for just a dinner out, as well, though. This dress even has pockets. It is 94% rayon and 6% spandex. It’s listed as running true to size, but going by the model’s sizing and chest measurements I’d say that it runs small: small 26″, medium 28″, and large 29″. It must stretch a lot though.

daydream b dress blk

daydream b dress blue

Daydream Believer Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $42
Add-on price: $35

in turquoise or black

Everything about this is awesome, from the style to the color selection to the Monkees’ inspired name! This lacy, sheer dress is 60% cotton and 40% polyester. It’s listed as true to size with a loose fit. Even considering that, it seems to run very large though. Chest measurements: small 41″, medium 44″, and large 46″.

work play blouse pink bk

work play bl taupe

Work or Play Blouse
Available:
In the $49 tote and $149 tote
Boutique price: $42
Add-on price: $35

in taupe or green

I’m just all about the color scheme of this green top. It is 97% polyester and 3% spandex. It’s listed as true to size and that sounds accurate with a slightly loose fit, going by the chest measurements: 37″ small, 39″ medium, and and 41″ large.

joggers

floral joggers blue back

floral joggers pink

Fun Floral Joggers
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $52
Add-on price: $35

in pink or navy

Okay, I definitely won’t be getting these because I haven’t found joggers to be flattering on me in the past and the placement of those pockets is not going to work for my awesome booty. However, I grew up wearing similar print leggings as a teen and still think they are cute, so if you can pull them off, get em! They are listed as 60% cotton, 35% polyester, and 5% spandex. It says that they are true to size, but going by the size that the models wore, I’d say they run on the smaller side.

paisley skirt

paisley skirt bl

Paisley Perfect Maxi Skirt
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $52
Add-on price: $40

in black multi or ivory multi

I just adore the design of this 100% rayon skirt, especially in the ivory. BTW-Yes, rayon! I find it so much cooler than polyester! Waist measurements are currently unavailable, but it’s listed as true to size. Going by the size that the models wore, I’d say that’s probably accurate.

pencil skirt bl

pencil skirt olive back

Perfect Pencil Skirt
Available:
In the $49 tote and $149 tote
Boutique price: $42
Add-on price: $35

in black or olive

This is incredibly simple, but nice. Even though this is a staple, I’m sure that some ladies still need one to round out there wardrobe. Plus, if you don’t, pick up the twist on this classic in olive. So pretty and mod. It is 53% cotton, 44% nylon, and 3% spandex. It’s listed as being true to size, but going by the models’ sizing, I’d say that it runs on the smaller side.

Ladylike Leopard Maxi Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $52
Add-on price: $40

in peach or aqua (I want both!)

I love this. It’s the item that I want the most this month. It features a cute back, tie waist and slit. It’s made of 100% polyester. This is supposed to run true to size. I guess that is with a relaxed fit though, as these are the measurements for the chest: 36″ small, 38″ medium and 40″ large.

tie dye Collage
Step Bright Up Dress
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $62
Add-on price: $40

This maxi is just super fun. It is also 100% polyester. It’s listed as true to size, but seems to run smaller than the last dress. Chest measurements are: 30″ small, 32″ medium and 34″ large.

denim skirt collage
Classic Denim Skirt
Available:
In the $49 tote and $149 tote
Boutique price: $35
Add-on price: $30

This is really a simple, classic skirt, but that’s what’s so great about it. It’s made of 98% cotton and 2% spandex. It’s listed as being true to size, but I think that it runs large, based on the waist measurements: 29″ small, 31″ medium and 33″ large.

crossover Collage
Draped Crossover Blouse
Available:
In the $49 tote and $149 tote
Boutique: $35
Add-on: $30

in ivory or navy

This 100% rayon, draped top just catches my eye. It features a faux wrap front. It is listed as being true to size, but sounds a bit large. The small has a chest measurement of 40″.

coverup Collage
Lounging Poolside Swim Cover
Available:
In the $149 tote
Boutique price: $48
Add-on price: $35

in pink multi, mint or navy

This is super sweet. All of the colors rock, but I’d go with the pink. This is 100% rayon. It’s said to run true to size, with a loose fit. The chest on the small measures 52″.

SWIMWEAR

Bobos are always comfy and easy to wear. This is definitely a fun print for the summer. They run true to size.

Everyday Gladiator Sandals

ACCESSORIES

Silver Shell Cuff

This would look hot with sleeveless dresses and tops.

This is another attempt at an ootd video for a change. I’ve still included a few photos though. I’m feeling very Quacker Factory in this outfit even though none of it is from that label.

Yes, this was shot on my phone, but edited on my computer!
