Feel the groove with tie dye this Summer! Like most people, tie dye reminds of me of Summer Camp arts and crafts. I remember dipping my shirt in different colors to create the bulls-eye and spiral designs. Well, the dip dye trend is back! I know you all are thinking tie dye really Bri?! Yes! The pattern has been revamped for a more contemporary style. The subtle pastel and blended patterns are the hottest items worn by all the top stars and street style fashionistas. You don’t have to go tie dye crazy…the blotchy color splatter is a statement in itself. So, when you’re getting ready to wear this look, the rest of your ensemble should be pretty simple. All you will need is some fancy footwork and the haute bag to tie it all together.
I never thought in a million years that I would purchase anything tie dye again. But, I couldn’t help myself when I saw this printed skirt on my IG feed one day. As soon as I spotted it, I rushed to my nearest Target searching through all the racks and racks until I found it. And to my surprise it was in the juniors department. Now I was very reluctant to purchase it but I couldn’t pass it up, it was so cute. So, I headed to the fitting room praying that it would fit and I wouldn’t look obscene in it. I was pleasantly surprised that it fit and that I could breathe in it LOL!
I paired my tie dye mini skirt ($12) with neon pink shrug from Dollhouse Boutique ($30) with a basic white tank ($8) and my Michael Kors jellies ($60). And, I carried my favorite American Apparel pouch in grey to break up some of the color.
You’ll be fresh and fashionable rockin’ shorts, skirts, dresses, tops and fun accessories that feature the whimsical print. Tie dye was considered a fashion don’t a few years back, but like the old saying goes “Fashion repeats”. The trend is truly having a comeback moment guaranteed to last for a while.
Will you be dying to wear tie dye this summer?
The stylish and fashion favorite of many, Gwen Stefani, will be launching a children’s collection with Target! ‘Harajuku Mini’ is set to include graphic tees, zip up hoodies and tiered tutus. Gwen says “Harajuku Mini is a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to do a cool children’s fashion line inspired by the super-cute and playful kid’s clothing you find in Japan. The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed.” Target (America’s favorite store), is becoming the place to shop for budget friendly designers. After the mayhem caused by Missoni this recent month, I’m sure they are excited to receive more of that action! Gwen’s collection is set to launch on November 13th, ranging from sizes 6 months to 16yr and prices $4 to $30. I can’t wait to see the entire lookbook! I love Gwen’s style, so I’m quite sure this will be a hit!
Gwen Stefani on whether Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry have taken a page out of her playbook when it comes to style: “Really? I don’t see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on. I see these girls as more going for the sex-symbol thing. I was more, in the band, like a tomboy. Of course, I think every girl is sexy, so there’s going to be a little of that. But I see a lot of younger artists going more toward the sexy thing.”
Adele on the love songs written about her ex: “We’re not on great enough terms for me to say, ‘Oh, have you heard my record? It’s number one; did you know?”
Aretha Franklin on wardrobe options for her tour: “I am going to rock this [size] 16. Sixteen probably sounds large to girls who wear 10s and 12s, but I love it, because it looks good on me.”
Willow Smith on her full length album: “It’s going to be a party beat. I think you’re gonna like it!”
Jennifer Hudson on the changes in her life: “My surroundings and my lifestyle are different, and it’s like, what part of Jennifer is the same as 10 years ago? The only thing I have to hold on to is my voice.”
Nicki Minaj on being a rapper: “I always wanted to play with the boys. I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character – a superhero.”
