Elegant Tie Dye? Really? Is There Such a Thing?

Is there such a thing as elegant tie dye? That’s our burning question of the day. Let’s start with a definition for “elegant.”¬†According to Google, it means “pleasingly graceful and stylish in appearance or manner.” Synonyms are “stylish”, “graceful” and “chic.” So, the answer to our question is a resounding “YES!”
