{handmade style}

Diana Hughes is a talented artisan in Atlanta whose clothing line, Dye Diana Dye, features hand-dyed Shibori pieces. I was first introduced to Diana over at the now-closed marketplace 1000 Markets.

She has a loyal following and three online shops. You can find her on Etsy, ArtFire, and on Zibbet. She's also a founding member at a lovely website called Indie Artisans (do check it out).

Diana just created a new piece for what she calls the "big, beautiful woman." I call it lovely, warm, and rich for fall and winter! I commend Diana for designing for women of all shapes and sizes.

This top is also eco-friendly, as it is 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton. I am a big fan of bamboo. It is incredibly soft and comfortable. Diana's newest top is $65.

What to wear with this?

Levi's 580 Plus Jeans, $31.99
Knitted purse from NzL Bags, $55
Earrings from Button Soup Jewelry, $7.50


  1. Thanks, Karley! What a nice feature (and I'm a big fan of bamboo too). :)

  2. Yea Karley! I love this place my curves fit right in and I love Diana's awesome work.

  3. Karley, just found this place from DyeDianaDye's facebook page. Yep, I'm a big fan of her gorgeous tiedye. And now, I'm an even bigger fan of yours!!! I hear ya, babe, about those curves. I'm just now fitting comfortably back into "some" of my 12's. All 14's are totally comfy and some are downright baggy. Yeah for this curvy blog. xoxocheryl
