She usually skews towards simple silhouettes and classic colors, but she's not afraid to mix it up and indulge some funky trends every now and then.
One of my favorite things about summertime is the abundance of bright colors, especially in everyone’s wardrobe! Tie dye is one of my favorite patterns — it’s less common than stripes or floral prints, but unique enough to stand out in a crowd. It has a laid-back vibe to it that makes it perfect for a day at the beach, running errands, or even on a fun date.

Once upon a time, my great friend showed me a little website she knew and loved called Etsy.com. "It's Betsy without the 'B'" she said ever so kindly as I typed it into my browser. She did however, fail to tell me I was going to lose an average of 3 hours a day digging into the website and dumping my very shallow money truck into the virtual Etsy 'shopping cart.'
In the winter months I get really moody. And I’m not just talking snapping at people on the subway because my skin hasn’t seen the light of day in months and the lack of Vitamin D has sent me into a permanent state of PMS. Not only my overall disposition, but my entire style changes during the winter.
There are some things that you can't get away with past college, but contrary to what some may believe, tie dye is not one of those things. It's shown up on nearly every runway and celebrity this season, and unlike those tie dye tees you used to make at summer camp, it's taken on a whole new level of fun sophistication.
The fashion industry loves to bring back old fashion trends. Sometimes that’s a good thing (hello, waist-cinching belts!) other times, not so good (‘80s linebacker shoulder pads, really?) and then there are those times when I’m just not quite sure what to think. Enter tie dye.
Tie Dye was cool when my mom was my age. Then it was cool again in 7th grade. And let me tell you I tore that trend up. I was just yay shy of deciding that my bat-mitzvah give away should be a tie dyed t-shirt. I LIVED for the days at camp when we would make our own tie-dye. And even though my color palette never turned out quite right (more like murkey brown poo) I still thought I was destined to be a hippie. I rocked tie dye so bright that my eyes hurt just thinking about it.
