10th Commandment: May 15

Dear Belle,

The pile of fashion magazines on my nightstand says that tie dye is back in style.  That can’t possibly be true…can it?

River Island Tie Dye Mirror Print Dress ($43)

Why, yes, tie-dye is in style this season.  But this is not necessarily a bad thing.

The dress above is a cool mix of Alexander McQueen’s prints and the freeform pattern of tie-dye.  Even name designers like Elie Tahari, DvF and Tory Burch have embraced the power of tie-dye.  And the colors of this strapless dress from Intermix are sublime. But since I don’t think this is a trend with multi-season sticking power, let’s keep to the less expensive choices, shall we?

I like this London Times dress, this flirty orange dress and this purple maxi.

If you’re not looking for a dress, I love the mix of colors on this top and this cowl neck top would look nice with navy or bright separates.  I also like the colors on this tie-dye maxi.  Or if you just want a hint of tie-dye, try this BCBG scarf.

Plus size?  This INC dress has just a hint of pattern on a solid field, it’s really pretty.  Petite?  I like the mix of colors and textures on this crewneck tee.

The Mondays: June 23, 2024

This weekend, I traveled out of state for work. My second work trip in two weeks. The thrill of being able to do whatever I choose without worrying about my daughter, my dogs, or my husband is kind of nice. But I miss Sloane so much, that I really can’t wait to get home. This […]
