Let’s call it the rule of thirds. Some trends you’ll never try, some you have to try but don’t work out, and some fall right into your lap. When the Tie-Dye trend hit runaways hard for this Spring and Summer I really had no cravings to par-take. It never really fit into my style and I was ok with it.
Yet, when I headed into the Community Thrift Shop in Van-City, I couldn’t keep my hands off this delicate piece. It was such a fun strawberry swirl, reminding me of summer; totally cool and eclectic. After taking a closer look I realized ‘This is Tie Dye!’
The trend I had sworn would never enter my closet was very vividly becoming a rotational piece between my skirts, jeans and wide-leg pants. Knowing your style is important, but what I think is even more defining is the ability to be open to things that you don’t expect. This tie-dye piece was a big pay-off for me. It was second-hand (which helped me stay sustainable), it was within budget ($18 is a steal), and the cotton fabric makes it breathable and comfortable.
I couldn’t have asked for more in my vision for this outfit. The pinks are cloudy, creamy goodness. All that’s missing is a raspberry swirl ice cream in a waffle cone.
If you have never checked out Community Thrift Shop in Gastown, Vancouver, I would high suggest it! It’s a great, curated shop for thrifting and vintage stock. It’s a hundred percent cool vibes, with the merchandise to support it. Check it out!
