Tie-dye. Doesn’t it just conjure up hippies playing hacky sack and the pungent odor of Patchouli? Tie-dye gets a (deservably) bad rap, but you don’t have to wear hemp chords and Birkenstocks to get down with tie-dye gear. In fact, there’s lots of totally adult, respectable and cute ways to wear it. We promise!
After the jump, 10 tie-dye pieces you can say “peace” to.

Honestly, high-waisted shorts are always probably going to be one of those things that girls love and dudes just don’t understand. But who cares? You look cute in them, and they’re a great way to hide some of that summertime pooch you might have put on (all those hot dogs and ice cream sandwiches can add up).
After the jump, 10 pairs of hot high-waisted pants!
Anthropologie is at it again, launching a new series of collaborative lines by designers like Mia Christopher and Dusen Dusen. This latest crop includes a new round of items from Karen Walker’s diffusion line Hi There.

Check out some selections from the new Made In Kind offerings above!
In my weekly search for Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha candidates, eDressMe is a frequent source of inspiration. This online boutique is either experiencing a severe fabric shortage or just generally confused about the definition of the word “dress.” Either way, I thought it was time to honor eDressMe’s chocha-showing efforts, so I put together a gallery of 10 of their best (or worst?) DSYC dresses, along with my best guesses at the models’ inner monologues. Click through to check ‘em out!
Oh man, sooo much to love about this series of photos featuring Oscar-winner Adrien Brody and his girlfriend, Lara Lieto, sharing a frisky shower on board a yacht in Saint Tropez, France. First of all, what’s this position called? It seems hard on the knees. Also, is she washing his butt crack and balls? I hope she used plenty of soap. And lastly, is that a scrunchie in her hair? She must read Cosmopolitan. I heard they think it’s the perfect sexytime accessory. Click on to see all the hilariously invasive shots! [Photos: Bauer-Griffin]
