Threads 4 Thought: eco-friendly fashion

A T-shirt dress is as timeless as a T-shirt.

I wore this simple cotton T-shirt dress on my vacation in NYC, styled for summer.


What I love about it is that I can add a long, cozy cotton cardigan and black tights and it transitions into fall and cooler weather, even winter. That way I get more use of my clothes and don’t need to pack anything away till next season.

It’s fabulous to have a dressing room instead of a closet to keep my clothes, the benefit of having a spare bedroom since the children have moved out. BTW this is not my dressing room, it’s my daughter’s eco-boutique.

Threads 4 Thought is a sustainable fashion company.

I bought it at DRIZZLE & SHINE eco-boutique.

It’s perfect for my dance classes. As much as I love dressing up, my lifestyle, teaching dance and most of my activities call for casual clothes, but that doesn’t mean shabby or frumpy.

When you have comfort + style, what’s not to love?

This has been a memory of September in Seattle. I’ll be going again soon!

    The t-shirt dress is beautiful, for its print and its simplicity, but you also improve it a lot with the red accessories, your personal touch (which beautiful figure with the belt …). I like the cardigan and the option of style with black stockings, the dress acquires a beautiful versatility without losing anything of beauty or elegance. With the open cardigan your image is really spectacular, a great style and a great outfit. It is evident that your classes need comfortable clothes, but it is impossible to imagine you disheveled, you are the opposite, in your image and in your life. The images are in Jean’s shop, but I’m sure you’d like to have a dressing room as big as her store, right?

      Thank you so much for your detailed review of my outfit and very kind compliment! I do like this dress with the red accents for warm weather and black stockings and a cardigan for cool weather. Oh yes, a dressing room as big as Jean’s store would be luxurious. 🙂 I’m content to have a little room, I don’t know how I managed in the years that I only had a closet. lol

    I love the t-shirt dresses too–they are super versatile!! In fact, I just thrifted a winter version—the sweatshirt dress!!!

  10. Hi Carmen you make it look so easy! You do a great job on dressing up a t-shirt dress. The photo taken in Central Park with the red belt and red purse is very chic! But I really like how you put it with the cardigan and tights for this time of year. I’m sure you’re looking forward to the Seattle trip. Have a wonderful day hugs Terri xoxo.

    Interesting, I’ve never seen that dress. It must have sold quick! I must get in to Drizzle again. It’s been too long!

      Hi Joni! I had a hard time deciding because it also came in gray with black splotches.
      Thanks for shopping at Drizzle and Shine. See you in January! 🙂
