oh my tie dye

i've always loved tie dye but in the last year or so, i've been particularly drawn to it. i like that it's splattered paint basically which reminds me of graffiti. i hadn't seen it but when i heard about proenza schouler doing tie dye this season i was intriuged but not THAT intrigued. after all, it's tie dye. not exactly a groundbreaking achievement for fashion in 2010. but i paid a visit to my favorite store opening ceremony and there it was. PS tie dye and my god, it looked amazing. so fresh and excited hanging there in bright bold colors. so pretty and fun. i'm glad i saw it because it makes me even more excited that i got this lil' number from american apparel.

you can't tell but it's actually a leotard or unitard or whatever but with shorts. a onesie, let's say.

my mom gave me this necklace for christmas. i love african inspired jewelry. i can't wait to go there some day.

AA onsie/INC skirt/necklace from Mom/target watch, vintage bangles, tiger eye bracelet

speaking of my sweet mother, the colorful jacket in dry cleaner plastic hanging on the door behind me is a mother's day gift. vintage bill blass, baby. i'll post some pics of her in it. she knows about it already so it won't be a surprise per se but i'll still enjoy giving it to her :)



you look GREAT! I love the whole ensemble. And YES that whole PS tie dye lineup makes me want to sell my ass so i can score some dibs.
