This tie-dyed shirt takes me to my happy place

Antalya, Turkey.


Which is where I bought it.


It works just as beautifully as a dress as it does as a shirt.


And for that, I love it.


Leroy’s happy place? The dog park. Which is where we took him for his first birthday last week. Happy birthday, baby beast!

    Love the loose drape and the color of that shirt on you!

    Man. I just adore buying things when I’m abroad. Not so I can brag about “how I bought this when I was abroad,” but just so that I can bask in the tangible memories when I’m wearing them. This is why I’m packing very light for Thailand. That and the fact that it’ll be 90 degrees over there! xx

    Great top! Tie-dye is the one and only thing I have ever DIYed fairly successfully. I don’t remember seeing any in Istanbul, it’s something I associate more with Asia, but a great piece nevertheless!

    What dreamy photos, I want that weather back! I’ve had enough of dampness!

    Gorgeous fit on the clothes, by the way! Great cut on the jeans and the top hangs beautifully.

    Happy, Happy Birthday, Leroy!

    And let me just add…you’ve made me covet a tie dye shirt. I’ve always viewed them as a bit too hippie for my taste, but I quite love yours! :)

    Dreamsequins — Cannot wait to see what you bring back from Thailand!

    Rachel — Why thankya. I gotta say — it was quite a find.

    Fiona — I just love that it’s so versatile.

    Alinka — Isn’t that the best part of souvenir clothes?

    Hauteworld — Maybe I need to start DIYing tie-dye too.

    Teresa — Hope you’re having an incredible time in Italy! Thanks for the kind note about the Contra feature. Paul from Style Quotient did an incredible job with the photos, didn’t he?

    Janis — You need to go to Turkey. You’d love it.

    Nicole — Leroy says thanks.

    Denise — The jeans are Seven for Mankind.

    CC — Thank you!

    I must say, I have NEVER been a fan of tie-dye. But this … I love. Sigh … and so my love affair with tie-dye begins.
