Trend of the Week: The New Tie Dye

Tie dye prints aren't just for reminiscing on the 1970's... we are bringing back tie dye style in a chic new way for spring. 

Persimmon Sling #1927C

We were inspired by the art of Shibori tie dye methods and the updated tie dye prints incorporated into the Spring 2016 Fashion Week runway shows last year. These subdued tie dye prints are a simple way to bring a unique new staple accessory to your wardrobe this spring.

Indigo Tote #1912C

You can rock these bags in 3 different colors - persimmon, indigo, and black. We love how Margaret (pictured above) paired our Indigo Tie Dye tote with our blue Baublette Necklace. 
Black Wristlet #1922C

Versatility meets style with 3 new bag shapes and 3 exclusive prints found only in our Tie Dye Collection. We especially love the functionality of our new wristlet design (pictured above). Perfect for a girl on the go, this wristlet features 2 compartments for all of your daily necessities and an extra interior zipper pocket for additional storage. We can't wait to take this one on out our next night out on the town!
