tie dye for

{ What I Wore: maxi dress c/o Altar'd State // J.Crew men's belt // J.Crew gladiator sandals (love these ones on sale!) // rings c/o Emitations } 
I love a maxi dress that is more than first meets the eye. Secret side slit & exposed back? Yes, please!
This also extends to where I shop. A shop that is more than just a pretty face, one that gives back & supports the community around it... I'm game!
I of course loved looking at all the pretty clothing eye candy on Altar'd State, but it was their commitment to giving back & sponsoring charitable work that really inspired me to share their store & story with you.

Mission Mondays, funding employee volunteer efforts & teaming up to support other vendors who give back... why yes, it does feel good to shop!
Have you checked out Altar'd State yet?

P.S. I wore this to the Nashville Southern Blog Society member meet up last week.

  7. I've been reading for a while but this is my first comment. First off - Go 'Dores! Secondly, your linky up there kinda looks like you got the dress at J. Crew. You may want to change that around a little bit. Thirdly - I love your style and seeing your pictures in my home-city of Nashville! :-)
