Tie Dye

Wasnt tie dye from the 60's? How come we all still like it and I still find it in high dollar clothes in department stores? I don't know, maybe there is a resurgence of fascination with the era and the sentiment it expressed.

Whatever the reason it manifested itself last weekend in the form of a tie dye party. One of my new friends, who conveniently lives around the corner, has an annual tie dye party, a close circle of 125 people all bring their white cotton items and spend the afternoon with pot luck, beer and a variety of dyes creating, well, art.

I had to duck in and out of the party to take care of work stuff but I managed to turn an old T-shirt and an older Banana Republic dress shirt into something else.

Groovy.

I like the colors of tie dye, but really - I don't wear those clothes. never did, probably never will. I mean how many productions of Godspell are going up right now?

I have always been fascinated by tie-dye. However, it doesn't look good on me. I can't pull it off.

John, I porbably cant pull it off either but that wont stop me :) Actually I wore the T-shirt the other day and was stopped several times by people wanting to know where I got it. Strangely those people were all in their 20's or younger.
