Tie Dye! The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

tie dye collage

Tie dye! Okay, so Shelbee wanted this theme for a long time, and I didn’t have any tie dye. The two items I showed on the reminder and here are old ones. But when I received a coupon for a online store and saw a gorgeous tie dye skirt I thought, yes lets do Shelbee a favour. You see, I do anything for my blogging friend! Lol. I will show the skirt in a post here on my blog, but for now you have to hop over to Shelbee’s to see it!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Tie dye

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

tie dye trousers

I recently bought these tie dye genie pants at a local shop called Rainbow Zen. They specialize in all sorts of tie dye and hippie apparel. These are so comfortable. They are made from 100% cotton so they are perfect for hot summer days. Definitely a Good Buy at $25. I have already worn them 5 or 6 times and I have only owned them for about 6 weeks!

Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style

tie dye dress with pink shoes

I was telling Shelbee that I didn’t have much tie dye until last year. But the pieces I do have, I really love. Like this dress from Peach  since it fits so well and is cool in the heat.
Of course I had to add bright pink to the mix, LOL

Joanne of Slices of Life

tie dress dress

I didn’t like this dress when it first came in and I tried to return it.  I thought for sure this was going to be a Good- Bye outfit, but then I wore it to the beach as a cover up this past week and I just fell in love with it.  The lightweight material was just perfect and the colors match my bathing suit!
Mireille of Chez Mireille
tie dye home project
My new blue tie dye is a home project not going like I’d hoped (it was supposed to be a very patriotic red white and blue swirl) but I didn’t follow the directions too well. I still like the colors so I still will wear it but mostly around the house.

I also added a pic of the boys with the tie dye shirts we made to match mine!
Rena of Fine Whatever
fashion blogger

I adore tie-dye although I prefer the more monochromatic motifs like the one in this photo as opposed to multi-colored ones. This dress has become a Spring/Summer staple for me as I worn it several times already and never the same way twice. Now that’s a good buy.

And here are my tie dye outfits

satin skirt with batik design

I had to searh long to see if I did have any photos of the few tie dye items I had. Yes had, because the skirt I sold, it was such a weird heavy fabric. So that was a Good-Bye. Btw, I was never a fan of tie dye.
Tie Dye shirt dress
And the shirt dress I gave away…..to soon…..because I wished I still had that one. Will I ever learn? Nope! But it was linen and I hate those wrinkles. But it would have been a Good Buy, after a few years that is.

August’s theme will be: Stripes!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to shelbeeontheedge@gmail.com or to batennancy@gmail.com

    Love both of your tie dyed pieces. But I don’t do linen, either!! Those wrinkles.
    Funny how Joanne was wanting to return her tie dyed dress until she tried it as a cover up and fell in love with it!! Shelbee’s genie pants are so HER. Love the whimsy and the comfortable styling. I bought a tie dyed tee online this spring to wear with my overalls but it is very oversized and just feels sloppy. Definitely a Good Bye!!

    I love tie dye! I think it will always be a classic, I have quite a few tie dye pieces! 🙂 I do really like your shirt dress, it’s a same you no longer have it!

    Thanks for the link up!

    I agree with Rena, I like tie dye that has the one color best too – on me. But I love seeing all the variations and it has certainly become something that everyone can wear! Thanks for the link up!

    This was such a fun theme! I too will give away clothing rather quickly if it requires a lot of care/ ironing when I first get it; even if I do sometimes regret it later.

    Yay for tie dye! Thanks for indulging me on this theme, Nancy! I love all the tie dye looks. Joanne tee shirt dress is so cute for a cover up. And Rena’s dress is so similar to my favorite summer dress that I shared recently. I do like the more monochromatic tie dyes as well, but bursts of color are totally my summer jam! Up next…stripes! Have a fabulous weekend, my friend!

      Yes I agree on the monochrome ones. I like tie dye now much better then I used too, lol.

    I do like the subtle tie dye of your skirt Nancy . I enjoyed seeing the variety of outfits on everyone. I am not a fan of it for me , I wore way too much as a teenager. Many thanks for hosting Nancy.

      Thanks Jill. I don’t remember I wore it a lot bak then, did do soe tees myself but I was never a fan either.

  9. 16th July 2021 / 18:22

    I did not think I liked tie dye but I love both of yours. I used to tie dye my tee shirts way back when I was a teen.

    Love that skirt and so many good tie dye looks! I bought a turquise and blue tie dye dress for the beach photos and will wear next week on the blog. Seems I am late to the party
    I love the print in your silky skirt!

    You are such a good sport Nancy with the tie dye. I have to admit that the dress you gave away is fabulous. I’m trying to embrace wrinkles of all kinds…on my face AND in my clothing!!

    Nancy, the tie dye dress is gorgeous! I hear you about giving things away and later wishing you had them back. The closet is only so big, though! Loved the great variety of tie dye looks on all the ladies. Mireille’s creations for the whole family is so inspiring. Have a good week and thanks for sharing!

    I don’t have any tie-dye either, so I would definitely have struggled with this theme!
    I’m loving that shirt dress’s sizzling colours, though, what a pity you gave it away. I hopped over to Shelbee’s blog too, just to see your skirt, and it’s absolutely fabulous! xxx

    I love this feature. I have mixed feelings about the tie dye trend. I liked it when it was in years ago, but I’m not sure am I really to take it on again. That skirt looks lovely on you but if the material was heavy, then selling was the right thing to do.

    I love your fun tie dye dress and skirt! It can be such a casual print so it’s great to see it used on a more classically cut item.

  19. 18th July 2021 / 18:22

    Even though these are all such fun outfits, I am just not a tie-dye gal, I’m afraid! They just read too boho for my taste/style.

    Lovely looks, everyone! Thanks so much for the link-up, Nancy!

    I love seeing all the tie-dye! I had intended to participate, but didn’t get it done. Too busy getting ready for the trip. Your tie dye skirt looked good, but I hate when a material feels weird. I also love your shirt dress, but yes, linen wrinkles are a problem.
