My Tie Dye Maxi Dress


Hi Darlings,

While in Santa Barbara this past weekend I stopped in a few small shops along State St. and picked up this cute tie dye maxi dress. It is so comfy, and it looks like this week is a comfy sorta week for me. The bag I am carrying is a Kate Spade which I just love! The shop where I picked up the dress is called Dear Diary. They do not have an online store but maybe you can call and see if they ship 805-892-5600 

I also wanted to mention that next week we will have another great "Work It Wednesday" post by my guest blogger Cynthia. I love having her on board to cover some great topics that you all seem to be really interested in.

That is all for today darlings! I will see you tomorrow. xoxo

  2. Hi Mimi, I've followed you for a long time but I've never commented. I think that this is a wonderful blog and appreciate all you do to make us ladies value ourselves. Anywho, that aside, how do you make your everyday fitted wear so seamless. I would love for you to post something on undergarments (or the lack thereof) that you recommend. It's always so flawless. I think you rock!!!

  24. Mimi, have you ever made a safari dress or will you be making a safari dress in the future? (I think that is the name of the dress) I'd love to see how you would style and accessorize it.

  25. I too follow your blog. Even though I am 60 years old I have gotten some dressing tips from you. I don't want to dress too young; however, I don't want to look like I am 60 years. Like my daughter stated, just because you are 60 doesn't mean you can't rock it. The high heels are over as well as the crop tops, but I can wear the sexy dresses and the accessories. Please keep inspiring me!

  40. Hi Mimi.G
    I was able to the dress from Dear dairy boutique shop. I have a stomach. But I think I will make it into a skirt, unless I can find a one piece that will hold me right. It looks more blue on you but I like it. Thanks for sharing
