Women’s Health featuring the ThaiDye Buddha Bag

Thaidye got a chance to play with the big kids – a few weeks ago they got a message from somebody at Women’s Health Magazine offering to shoot some footage of their shoulder and buddha bags for possible inclusion in one of their upcoming editions.

Obviously Thaidye was fast to get some samples out to New York. Soon thereafter it became obvious that the next round had been reached when the request for the official name, web site and contact info came in.

And then it really happened – the June issue 2010 featured Iron Man 2 actress Kate Mara, modeling “8 Easy Pieces – This Summer’s Essentials” and they are pretty, relaxed, and ready for a good time – Just like you! (Women’s Health’s words – not mine!)

In case you wonder what these 8 Easy pieces are – here you go…

  1. Peasant Blouse
  2. Skinny Cargos
  3. Corset Sundress
  4. Raffia Accessories
  5. Paper Bag Shorts
  6. Tie-Dyed Bag
  7. Tiered Skirt
  8. Safari Vest

And indeed, this point #6 introduces Thaidye’s buddha bags to the world of fashion, playing with the big kids.

What I mean by “playing with the big kids”?

It is standard operating procedure that the magazine lists all the item the model is wearing in these fashion shots. Look what Kate presents…

Gotta tell ThaiDye that they steep-up their prices, don’t you think?

Miley Cyrus in our tie-Dye?

Our whole family has watched Miley Cyrus’ Disney Show Hanna Montana pretty much from the  beginning and we all like it (especially our nine year old son) – even though I think the coolest person in the show is Daddy – sorry to all you Miley-only fans, but at least it’s the real daddy so the genes are right.

Recently I ran into a nice image of Miley, probably taken somewhere in the greater Los Angeles area – anybody know where exactly? – which I liked…

…even though I think the t-shirt is a bit boring.

Allow me to dream my dream that all star, starlets and celebrities are eager to wear the mudmee tie-dye we offer the world.  I am sure that, if they would find out about us, would certainly be true anyways.

I have already started to dress one of our female astronauts properly for her accomplishments in space and so now it was Miley’s turn to be chiqued up.

Out came good old photoshop and suddenly we have some exquisitely dressed Miley Cyrus…

I would have loved to dress Miley in one of our all natural cotton skirts – but that would have taxed my photoshop abilities too much, so instead here you have Destinee modeling one of the mudmee skirts.

She looks a bit like Miley anyways and even is the same age. She and her friend actually came to us offering to model for us – cool, huh?
