Mama's Hip(pie) Fashion

I saw recently on The Today Show fashion segment, that Tie Dye is back in style, probably for a while now, only with a modern twist. I was going on my annual beach vacation, so of course I needed a bathing suit cover-up(my chubby belly), or two. I already have 2 black ones so I wanted something a little different. I found this white one for $10 at JC Penney (the only department store within 46 miles of my house. Being that it would look filthy in minutes with my spilt coffee or wine and kids grubby finger prints all over it, I decided to Tie dye it. I figured if it came out horrible I could just wear it around the house. Well, I love it.

I also found this sundress for $12 at a local clothing store. E says it makes my butt look big, but for me that is a good thing. I also received a compliment from "Surfer Dude" (not about my butt) who lived next door to our vacation rental, when I wore it. I am not sure if he liked me in it or just wanted to borrow it.

Big Butt Dress

The kids also Tie Dyed T's but with more traditional designs. It is relatively easy nowadays and the kit are inexpensive too.
