And, I hope you're hearing that "helllllooo" in the way it was intended, in the Jerry Seinfeld voice - the one he thought his girlfriend's belly button would make if it talked. My sweet, dear, pushy friend Jenni set this baby up for me. She thinks I need something to do since I just had foot surgery and am a shut-in for at least a few months (can't drive on a broken right foot). Since, by paycheck, I am a writer, this should allow me to spout off some of my creativity. At least, whatever's left over after my daily "craft sessions" with the kids (coming later: decorating flip-flops!).
Of course not.
In my quest, some pretty darn cute things have turned up - tie-dye T-shirt dresses ($25) at Nationltd.com. A real steal. Bought one. (Tip: Sign up for the e-mails, and you can save 25 percent.) Even though summer hasn't technically begun (although when you live in a land that rocks 100-plus temperatures in May, it SO is summer), I'm going on record as saying I've just made my ultimate buy of the season - a tie-dye maxi dress from Forever XXI.
I'm farther than I'd like to admit from 21, but the store still has lots of fun to offer. Plus, you don't have to suffer the indignities of pawing through the racks with girls who could be your daughter (if you were a pregnant teen), when you shop online.
At just under $28, this dress has all you'd want and more: hand-washable, the most unbelievably soft-as-a-bunny fabric and, as an added bonus, soft, built-in bra cups. No need to wear an uncomfortable strapless bra. Perfection.
