Hey guys! I just returned from an amazing trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico and wanted to share these photos with all of you, especially the ones of me in my new Dazy Mae Dress :o) As soon as I discovered this new dress in the catalog, it went straight to the top of my Soul-Flower wish list. It seemed like the perfect dress to accompany me to Mexico. I immediately fell in love with everything about it, including the adorable, huge pockets, which are my favorite feature of this dress. Since the moment I put it on, it has fast become one of my absolute favorite pieces in my closet.
In addition to being extremely cute, it is so comfortable! It is perfect for those days when you are craving both comfort and style. The fabric is soft and is comprised of so many beautiful colors that you are only able to see in person. Even though the description of the dress states that it is a mini, be prepared for it to hit at your knees or lower if you are short. I am 5’1″ and the dress falls right at my knees, but I still love it! Also, many people have had issues with the bust line of this dress. It is sewn in a way that will definitely squish you horribly if you have a bigger chest. I am a 34B and the bust fits me pretty well. If you are bigger than that, you will most likely need to do some minor alterations. This dress is so cute though that it would definitely be worth it!

Our bud Trish from the Karma Krewe went to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Telluride, CO, and shared some pics with us, rockin’ her Down Low Hemp Hat!
At the festival, Trish also handed out some Soul Flower catalogs and stickers as a way to get the word out about our cool threads for kind heads… which reminds us…
The Fall/Winter 2010 Soul Flower catalog is now in the works! It won’t be delivered to you til October, but get excited! Because we’ve been working hard to bring in a bunch of new items that we’re sure you’ll love.
And speaking of love, we all know reusing is even better than recycling (though recycling is good, too!), so if you’ve exhausted your current Soul Flower catalog with all your lovin’, pass it on to a friend. It’s always awesome to spread some positive vibes!

With the warm weather finally here, I was very excited to start going all sorts of cool places. So I recently paid a visit to Tower Hill Botanic Gardens in Boylston, MA. What did I wear, you ask? Why, my new That 70’s Patchwork Dress, of course! This dress/skirt is absolutely adorable. It is extremely comfortable and keeps you super cool in the hot weather. It looks nice in the picture online, but when you actually see it in person, it is even better! It is so soft and there are so many vibrant colors in it! All of the colors make it very easy to match just about anything to it. Plus, you can wear it two different ways! I must admit, I am quite biased to wearing it as a dress though, which is probably just because I love dresses so much :o)
The material it is made of (100% jersey cotton fabrics) is extremely stretchy, so if you are smaller chested like me and want to wear it as a dress, it may be a bit big. However, I did find that if you are worried about the top falling down, you can tie the strings used for wearing the skirt around your neck. It holds the top up nicely and it still looks really cute. Be ready to attract attention and bring happy, positive vibes wherever you go :o)
