Ahh- a late summer, early fall “go to” outfit…

Sometimes you have things in your closet that you don’t touch for years.

Sometimes you have things in your closet you wear so often that you search eBay for a “less worn out” version than yours.

dievca found replacements for two dresses this summer:

And….
A Plenty by Tracy Reese Blue Macrame Dress:

You may be asking, “Why did dievca have to buy a 2nd dress?” The fabric is made to fade in the wash and become a light denim color.  dievca wore and washed the original dress so much that it became white in the macrame section. Someone at Goodwill may be wearing the dress with the white on it. dievca will be more gentle this time.

Everything dievca has put on by Tracy Reese has been fabulously easy to wear. The designer, originally from Detroit, MI has a certain feminine look.

Tracy Reese designs are noted for their femininity and retro-influenced style; the textiles themselves make use of bright colors, elaborate graphic patterns, and a playful use of bohemian touches.

dievca needed a “go to” outfit for the end of the day and it needed to have a light coat, plus be packed in a backpack.

The Macrame knit dress was a “keeper” and dievca added:

PS: Just a FYI~ Here’s the second dress dievca replaced with an eBay purchase. She wears it with black Teva flip-flops, or Clark green leather flip-flops. The first dress faded and ended up with piling (after 3+ years of washing).
