Tie-dye love


I'm so in love with Shabd's new tie-dyed pieces. Aren't they beautiful? They're out of my budget, but they're truly works of art.

P.S. Fun fact: Shabd taught Martha Stewart how to tie-dye!

I think if you're teachin' Martha how to tie die, you're the man! I love the dresses/skirts & tops but don't wear this much color. Love 'em anyhow.

That second dress is AMAZING! I love everything 70's inspired :)

I love the tie-dye, especially in the long maxi dress - so pretty. This would be perfect for an outdoor concert this summer!
Much love,

Chimmy said...

oooh pretty! i like to rummage through my mom's closet for some of her african tie-dye dresses and kaftans; she'd really appreciate it if i just got some of my own!

not in love with those prices though...

Kaitlyn said...

Wow, those are gorgeous. The last thing I tie-dyed was a pair of socks... and they did not look that lovely. I wonder how she does that!
Thanks for posting!

Wow, I love this design on those outfits! As soon as I hear tie-dye I think of pieces that just won't compliment anything, but these ones are definitely the exception!
Take care!

I rarely say "what pretty tye die." But I think this one calls for it.

The subtle, muddled grey tones, and the few pastels woven in the mix, reminds me of eggs dipped and then left out in the morning mist.

Cheers!

Joanna Goddard said...

teri, you're so right -- my grandfather used to die eggs and it looks so similar! :)

Shabd went to my high school and always had a vintage but unique style. She's a great talent to feature! Keep up the great work, Jo.

Just lovely!

My niece, who keeps me informed of the coming trends, told me that tie dye was coming back. I love those tie dye picks. I would love to include a nice tie dye dress in my spring/summer wardrobe.

Liz said...

Amazing! I especially love the last one!

Lilly said...

I thought you might like this wonderful, chic, and simplistic tie-dyed scarf (the how-to is in German but the videos are pretty self-explanatory).
This is the result: http://www.mait-studio.com/images/stories/Teaserbilder/Projekte/T_pj_Batiktuch.jpg

And here's how they made it:

I used to love tie dye parties as a kid. They were so much fun to see each one of a kind shirt.
Seriously love that first dress.

Bridget said...

someone taught martha stewart something? i thought she was just born like that.

des said...

out of my budget too, but i was lucky enough to snag up one of her scarves at a barney's outlet for $70!
those new grey pieces get me every time.

Diana Mieczan said...

They are really beautiful. That first maxi dress is perfect for summer!I really love that pattern. Kisses:)

Kate said...

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. That dress is worthy of a black-tie event, even. Who would've thought...

Great post!

These are beautiful pieces from a great line. I'm going to try my hand at tie-dying this summer and I'll be pleased if they turn out 1/100th as nice as these!

Hazel said...

I haven't worn tie dye since my college days but these are pretty cool. The simple, contemporary shapes and muted colours are a great twist on this usually 'hippy' style. Love it.

Rosalynn of Chic Boutique Tour said...

I typically don't fancy tie-dye, but these are fabulous!

Hilary Grace said...

Oh my word I wish I hadn't looked. The fact that I can't afford these dresses (specifically the second one) is just painful!! Okay, that's dramatic. But really they are so so lovely.

I love these dresses. You could definitely find a more affordable white dress and create your own... oh the possibilities.

Great find!

Beautiful tie dye fabrics on each one of these. Love the soft hues.

Jessica said...

Wow, these are pretty but almost 700 dollars for a tid-dye dress. I have cool tie-dye that I made at a summer camp and it looks good (not that good). I am impreseed that anyone would spend that much money on tie dye

abigail said...

now that is tie-dye done right!

melissa said...

These Tie-dye's are fabulous! xo

Nina said...

I'm loving the yellow dress but you're right, just a tad out of the budget...

Slightly Smiling said...

They really are beautiful. I love that there are so many tie-dyes nowadays that aren't garish clashes of colors (not that those aren't also fun!) :] Thanks for sharing!

Jordan P said...

Those are gorgeous. It's cool to see tie dye in pastel rather than the bright rainbow colors!

Kelly said...

These are so lovely! My mother sets up a tie dye station on our back porch in the summer for all the little cousins. I have just as much fun as they do!

Nicole MacDonald said...

Oooo I just love that soft yellow! And the dress at the bottom - such a pity it's going into Winter here in NZ ;p

This can't truly have success, I suppose so.

Cant say I am a fan of the yellow and blue mixed tie dye outfit. But I do like the simple designs and not to bright color scheme.

xl pharmacy said...

those are the perfect clothes to wear during summer time, beside is good to enjoy the sun, or well the fresh evening in fall.
