You may have noticed that we're hardly perpetual rays of sunshine around here, but even so, we seem to spend a lot of our time enthusing about one gewgaw or another. Doubtblush exists to make it clear that we do not, in fact, like everything.
The whole "haute hippie" expensive clothing thing confuses us - aren't hippies supposed to be all back to the earth, sewing their own clothes from cheap scarves bought in Portland, OR flea markets or weaving their own fabric from hemp? What gives with expensive stuff like this Blu Moon Cleo Tie Dye Wrap Dress ($194)? It's like when really rich people throw a country hoedown party and pretend that sipping $25 microbrews out of jelly jars, eating grass-fed Kobe beef hamburgers, and dancing to a live performance by Blake Shelton is "down-home". Hippies do not spend this kind of money on clothes. Organic kombucha, lentils, and colon cleanses? Possibly. But not clothes.
Whatever. We guess the dress is cute, in and of itself, and if you have the spare bones for what is essentially a $200 tie-dyed rayon sarong, go for it.
