Mid-Week Pop Up Shop

Mid-Week Pop Up Shop

Happy Wednesday ladies. Thank you so much for your positive thoughts and prayers these last few weeks. They have meant the world to me. Our sun is shining and things are looking up so let’s have some fun today!

My friend Pam and I have decided to do a mid-week would you wear it pop up. Mannequins are in short supply for us since we’re still at home so we’ve found other outfit images to share with you.

Tie-dye is everywhere this spring, on shirts, sweaters, skirts, pants, dresses, you name it. This shirtdress combines tie-dye and floral. What do you think? Would you wear this?

How could you style it to work for your lifestyle and body shape?

Remember to keep your comments related to your style so other women don’t get their feelings hurt. We’re not talking about the price, we are talking about the style.

Tie-Dye Dresses


I wanted to share a few sales updates because they change daily.

If you’re wanting to stock up on your perfume, Neiman Marcus (who just declared bankruptcy) is giving 25% off fragrances, skincare, beauty,  plus bath and body. The sale ends today at 10 pm CT.

Sunny days are ahead and to help us be ready,  DSW has 40% off sandals with the code SUNSOUT. I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to the warm weather that calls for sandals:)

The huge Sephora sale is on and it’s always a doozy. I will be back with what I’m stocking up on very soon.

Now let’s go over to Over 50 Feeling 40 and see what outfit Pam is sharing.

Thanks for being here and being part of this amazing community. Be well and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.

    I love this! It speaks to my inner Earth Mother/:Flower Child/Hippie (well I’m not sure it’s inner – maybe just me). I probably wouldn’t use the belt but I want the dress!

    My first impression is that this dress was too busy and too bright for me. But, the more I look at it, the more I like it. I am 5′ 4″ and not exactly thin, so I’m not sure how this would look on me. But it’s a fun dress and very comfortable looking.

    I might try it on just for fun, but I don’t think it’s something I’d wear often enough to make it a worthwhile purchase.

    I’d wear it for casual shopping, lunching etc. Love the colors and floral pattern mixed with tie die! I live in a small beach town where this would fell righat home!

    There’s the thing! I would probably look “cute” according to family in that dress. I’m 77 and don’t like that expression at my age because it usually means I’m dressing too young. But I love this dress. I like the tie dye with the flowers & I like a shirtwaist but I would need foundation help so don’t wear one. Bottom line is, I like it.

  6. Lois Williams

    A resounding yes if I had occasion to wear a dress. It would be great for office attire but lm now retired. I’d change the shoes to a wedge. The length is perfect too since I’m tall & the colors work well for a blue eyed, blonde.
    BTW I’m very claustrophobic & have been through a good deal of testing myself recently. Found there are now open MRI’s which changed my life. So glad you had a benign diagnosis!

    Tie dye is HOT- I ordered a tee in blue and white tie dye from Coldwater Creek- it is on back order til the end of May. The dress is pretty and I can see it for summer parties, but it is too busy for me. I like floral, but not in combination with another pattern. The colors are lovely and flattering to most.

    I’ve always liked shirtwaist dresses & wore them a lot when I was younger, but I find them too structured now. When I do wear a dress (which is VERY rarely) I prefer casual pull-on styles with long simple lines & no waist, or if I want to pay homage to my old hippie days, I go for the gauzy Indian cottons with their embroidery & beads 🙂 This dress also doesn’t work for me because I rarely wear blue unless it’s denim & I find it too visually busy with the picnic tablecloth floral swath around the middle. I’m shocked & saddened to hear about Neiman Marcus’ demise, btw. Here in Canada we’re down to one grand old department store now — The Hudson’s Bay — & it’s a shadow of its former glory.

    I like the tie die but this dress is awfully busy. I think it would look great as just a skirt.

      I totally agree with Rose.,I am very short so this would overwhelm me.,

  10. Katrina
    April 22, 2020 / 10:47 am

    Haha!!! I love the comment about looking like a walking curtain in that dress. At 70, I have enough trouble disguising things, rather than drawing attention to them. This would be great for a beach outing, but too busy & trendy for a practical ROI (Return on Investment). If we really consider cost per wearing, we’d probably have to eliminate half of our closets!!! So thankful for your good news.

    I like tie dye, but not in this particular dress. It’s just too much of it on a long dress. I’m sad about Neiman Marcus. Pretty soon there will be no department stores left. I’m still irked about Macy’s buying out everyone.

    Button down shirts do not work for me, always gaping at the chest & too big in the shoulders if it fits across my chest + I no longer wear dresses except to church anymore. It is a very cheerful dress, but too bright for me. I do enjoy doing this exercise with everyone & the comments . So thankful for your good news. I will keep you in my prayers.

    It’s pretty but too bright for me for everyday wear. It’s a lovely vacation outfit. Xx

  14. Diane B
    April 22, 2020 / 8:51 am

    The dress is quite pretty, even the colours are great, however it is a little to boho for me. I have never been a fan of tie dye. I do really like the look of the Suboo blue and white dress in the slide show. I just received a pair of Vionic sandals that I think will work great for now and then when we are allowed to travel will be perfect. I need the support after weeks of socks only. And the bling on the straps is a bonus. Great idea for the WYWI addition as I love all the comments as well.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:07 am

      My feet are rebelling too. I’ve got some more supportive things in order. Can’t wait to actually wear them outside!

  15. Suzi
    April 22, 2020 / 8:29 am

    Thank you and Pam for this treat. I love this dress in theory but the Placement of the floral section Doesn’t work for someone with no waist. (Me!). The batik style blue and white is my favorite otherwise I don’t wear traditional tye-dye, too busy for my larger short frame.

  16. Pam Over 50 Feeling 40
    April 22, 2020 / 8:15 am

    I would like the dress and even try it on if it did not have the floral in the middle. I am a curvy lady and the floral design stuck in the middle just accentuates the places I do not want to draw the eye to. I think of the floral had been on the collar and cuffs it would have been super cute.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:06 am

      Great points Pam. Happy Wednesday XX

  17. Sharon
    April 22, 2020 / 8:15 am

    Beautiful colors. I would like it cut off at the bottom of the floral and wear it as a long tunic with fitted white ankle pants. Turn up the cuff and push up the sleeves to show some arm. Open the front a few buttons and add a white tank and necklace. Choose a Natural color sandal and matching straw bag to finish the look. Thanks for sharing.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:05 am

      I love your styling ideas. Thanks for sharing them with us Sharon.

      • Beth Allgood-Justice
        April 22, 2020 / 9:44 am

        Great ideas!! I’d cut off the sleeves and put the cuff at the end of the sleeve, elbow length or 3/4. Also love the idea of making it into a long tunic. I love this dress but I don’t wear dresses anymore …. hallelujah what a freeing decision that was!!!! I’ve felt happy about it ever since. : )

        • Beth Allgood-Justice
          April 22, 2020 / 9:47 am

          But it’s way way way too expensive. I can’t imagine feeling ok about spending that much on a dress.

  18. Joanna
    April 22, 2020 / 7:58 am

    I love it! It’s just plain fun! I never thought I would say that about tie dye. I love the mix of floral & tie dye. I’d pair it with flat sandals or my lace up white booties and a Jean jacket for cooler days. I’m tall with a defined waist so I can wear this style.
    This would be a fun dress for my Greek Island trip next year. I’ll have to watch the sales though. I would never pay that much for a fun, casual dress that will date, I’ll tire of, or grow too old to wear. The cost per wear is simply not there.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:05 am

      Cost per wear is becoming increasingly important for me. Your trip sounds dreamy.

  19. Deanna
    April 22, 2020 / 7:53 am

    The price! Yikes!! Also on a chubby woman like me and older it would be definitely a no!

  20. Kim
    April 22, 2020 / 7:41 am

    Hi, this dress would look ridiculous on my 5’3 less than svelte frame.I am sure on a taller person it could be quite striking.
    I am not big on pattern for me.
    Many years ago I purchased a tie dye skirt at Nordstrom that could be converted into a dress that I wore as a beach cover up.
    I wore it mainly to the beach but that skirt is long gone.
    At 61, I might embrace the trend in a very subtle fashion like a scarf tied on a straw bag or pony tail holder.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:08 am

      Thanks Kim. Have a great Wednesday.

  21. Lily
    April 22, 2020 / 7:37 am

    While I like the print, this dress is too much for my frame/taste. The same fabric in a simple, knee length shift would be better.

  22. Joan
    April 22, 2020 / 7:28 am

    I’m not sure if I’m ready to see tie-dye back in style. LOL This particular dress seems to be a little too busy with its tie-dye and floral combination. On another note, I would like to echo what many have already said concerning how happy we are about your great test results! I’m sure this is a HUGE relief for you and your husband.

    As an aside, is anyone else feeling really emotional right now? I just received a text from Chico’s advertising today’s sale. It begins with “We’re thinking of you.” As soon as I read it, I started to tear up. Wow!

  23. Barbara Kluver
    April 22, 2020 / 7:14 am

    I’m not a huge tie-dye fan, but I LOVE this dress. I would wear it if I had more of a waist and less of a “midriff bulge”. I love the combination of the blue and white tie-dye on the top and bottom, and the flowers in the middle.

  24. Marcie
    April 22, 2020 / 7:13 am

    Fun, colorful and interesting. But not for me. Too much going on in one dress. Thanks for sharing it though, I did enjoy seeing it!

  25. Cyndi
    April 22, 2020 / 7:10 am

    Actually, I like it quite a lot. I like it because it’s unusual in a couple of ways – length, tie-dye mixed with floral is very fun. I usually don’t wear dresses, but this one I could do if it came in Petite.

  26. Trish
    April 22, 2020 / 7:05 am

    I love the dress although never cared for tie dye.
    However the combination of floral in middle I think is unusual and complementary to the td.
    Be really cute with the Tommy Hilfiger navy espadrilles and a sun hat.

  27. jmp
    April 22, 2020 / 7:01 am

    Is it one piece or two? It’s very cute, but would look awful on my short body.

  28. Carolyn
    April 22, 2020 / 6:57 am

    Love the dress— on the model! Unfortunately, I don’t think I could pull it off. Colors are a bit brighter than I wear but I would admire it on someone else.
    On another note, I was very relieved to hear your good news. You now have one more health issue to deal with. Know that all of your blog family sends hugs and prayers.

  29. Shari
    April 22, 2020 / 6:56 am

    Well I love the dress but don’t think I’d wear it! Too much pattern for an older woman!
    And I don’t have the waistline for the style anymore!
    But I am happy to see the trend for the dye……I’m thinking this is a fad that could show up in my closet as an inexpensive accessory or tee shirt?? A little for fun not an investment.
    When I worked at a community college the math department made the dye each year for
    Fun and “instructional” value!

  30. Catherine
    April 22, 2020 / 6:49 am

    I love this outfit but I am not so sure it would love me back. I would try it on if I saw it just to see the impact of the flowers in the middle and the length (although I could easily adjust that) The colours are perfect.

  31. Susan R
    April 22, 2020 / 6:48 am

    The style of the dress is great The print, for very short me, is too much. I’d feel the dress was wearing me. Also, in ultra conservative/ preppy mid Connecticut I’d draw the eye rolling kind of attention. Why can’t it be mostly solid with just a touch of tie dye? ( I’ve seen tie dye that’s barely there…lovely)
    The other dresses didn’t wow me because of style: I don’t wear anything big and flowy , I don’t t wear sleeveless or short sleeves cause of crepey arms. I like some tie dye though. Blue and white is my favorite – I own 2 blue and white soft knit a- line skirts that I’ll never throw away.

  32. Linda GR
    April 22, 2020 / 6:47 am

    I’d wear this if it was all navy and white. I find the center insert of bright pink floral disconcerting.

  33. Jayne
    April 22, 2020 / 6:45 am

    I would wear the top as a shirt with white pants. As it appears, it would overwhelm my short self with both the full style and the multiple big and colorful patterns. I do like that blue one color tie dye print!

  34. Deb
    April 22, 2020 / 6:32 am

    Love the style of the dress but not in the dye or that busy floral. If was vertical stripes yes!

  35. Julia
    April 22, 2020 / 6:32 am

    I love everything about the dress. Makes me happy just looking at it. Looks beautiful on the model. I agree with another reader who stated she would wear it in a scarf but I could not wear it as a dress. It would overwhelm my frame but I still love it!

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:03 am

    Hi!!! I was all about that first tie dye shirt dress. I was ready to put it in the cart! That was until I saw the price. That was pretty high falutin for Anthropology. I love their things, but didn’t realize their clothing could be so expensive. For almost $600.00 with tax, I will have to wait for a sale, given I wanted it for a throw on, run-around dress. When we get to do that again!!

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 9:02 am

      They carry dresses in the thousand dollar range too. I was surprised to see that. I’m guessing prices will be coming down very, very soon.

  38. Janice
    April 22, 2020 / 6:06 am

    I am much too short and old for that much color, but I love the solid blue tee shirt dress, that I could wear easily.

    Thank you for keeping us thinking about what to wear and not just stay in flannel pjs, the weather is getting very nice in South Carolina.

    April 22, 2020 / 6:05 am

    I really like everything about this dress. However, it’s hard to look at a beautiful young model who is tall and very thin and try to imagine how the same dress might look on me.

    • Susan
      April 22, 2020 / 6:16 am

      I love this dress.These are favorite color combinations.Pointed collars always seem harsh on my face and I don’t know why?

      • Jennifer
        April 22, 2020 / 9:01 am

        It could be the shape of your face and width of your shoulders. Go with what you love.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 8:59 am

      I agree, but things must sell better off young thin models.

    April 22, 2020 / 6:00 am

    Thanks for doing this.
    I like tie dye but this dress has too much going on for me. Too much print, long sleeves. waist tie? I would look like a walking curtain so no. The slide show Wilt blue dress is my style.

    April 22, 2020 / 5:56 am

    If this came in petite sizing, I would wear it. I think I would change out the belt, though for something without a big bow. Love the colors, and this would satisfy my love of floral prints without being overwhelming.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 8:57 am

      I love that idea Becky. I seldom wear self belts either

  42. Doris Harding
    April 22, 2020 / 5:40 am

    Love this dress/look, but I think it might be a bit too “young looking” for me. Nevertheless, the colors seem Spring-like and bright – and we all could use some cheering up right now!

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 8:55 am

  44. BethW
    April 22, 2020 / 5:24 am

    The model looks great in the dress but it would not be for me. I would be overwhelmed by the busy print. I am petite and and frankly there are just some styles that look better on younger women than I.

  45. Linda
    April 22, 2020 / 5:13 am

    I love the yellow daisy on the white shirt. The pants are cute too! Yes, I would love to wear some tye dye! These are hits for me!

  46. Linda
    April 22, 2020 / 5:10 am

    I like the style of the dress, but not the print. I would prefer one or the other, but not the tie dye and floral together.

    My first impression, I love it! The classic shirt waist dress transcends all age groups. It looks like the waist might sit a little higher. The pattern of tie dye and the color mix just makes me smile. Would I be able to pull off this look? Maybe, but I could not convince myself to buy this dress. $500.00 is not a casual purchase for me now or actually ever. Still, so fun to look at and dream a little.
    Thankyou Jennifer for a fun morning!

    • Sue
      April 22, 2020 / 6:04 am

      Yeah…the price 🙁

    April 22, 2020 / 4:59 am

    Good morning. The dress is very smart. I like everything about it. Not sure I could wear it though, as I’m not young, tall and slim as is the lovely model wearing it. Thirty years ago maybe!

  50. sheryl
    April 22, 2020 / 4:51 am

    love tie dye, wore it to death in the 70s, would wear it again. but in a smaller dose…maybe just a blouse.

  51. RoseAG
    April 22, 2020 / 4:39 am

    The dress on the model is a very pretty print. I love the colors.
    I probably would like the dress better if it didn’t have the tie dyed border at the hemline. I’m not very tall and horizontal patterns make me look wider than I already am. It’s OK across the chest, but not across the bottom.

  52. Cynthia Brown
    April 22, 2020 / 4:36 am

    I really love how they combined the tie dye with the floral. If it was a scarf, I’d buy it immediately. The dress itself is really tempting in theory. But I probably wouldn’t go for it unless it came in petite sizing. Otherwise the length would be to the floor and the waist would be too long.

  53. Sue
    April 22, 2020 / 4:35 am

    I have never liked the tie dye look on me–I feel disheveled. Even though I AM a lover of patterned clothes.
    The dress on the model seems to call attention to the midsection, with the “apron” of bright flowers. Not an area I want to call attention to, so for me it’s a no. I’d wear it in a solid color though.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 8:51 am

      Thanks for explaining why Sue

  54. Linda R Gaertner
    April 22, 2020 / 4:17 am

    I like the tie dye dress on the model but I didn’t care for all the others. I probably would not wear the dresses shown only because I didn’t care for the styles shown. For my shape the dresses shown are not flattering.

    Hope your test results come back soon. 🙏

  55. Gail Schwartz

    April 22, 2020 / 3:32 am

    Good morning. I’m not a fan of tie dye. The dress would be cute on a younger person I guess, but rarely see tie dye around here except on teens’ tee shirts. Maybe it will grow on me, but I never really wore the look,even when younger.

    • Jennifer
      April 22, 2020 / 8:50 am

      We will be seeing more and more of it so I wonder if we’ll get used to it.
