Stylish Steals: Pretty Girl Flirts with Tribal


Trying on a new trend like the ethnic/tribal vibe can be a big step out of one’s comfort zone, but with baby steps you can capture the vibe and what? Do it on sale?!

Yes ma’am. This dress and the shoes below are both very reasonably priced and just put on sale.

When perusing Nimli’s site, I was actually astounded to see all of their sale items, and came up with this little outfit for you ladies that don’t want tattered and beaded bib necklaces, wild prints, harem pants and a host of mixed textiles that could confuse any tribesman if they met you in the jungle.

So today we’ll go subtle and maybe inspire you to walk a little further out some other time.

The dress above by Doie is made of organic cotton and is great now (and later with tights and boots) as a perfect summer dress. I love the gathered ruching in the front as a point of interest. On sale for $96.


These vegan heels by Cri de Coeur are a nice alternative to just pairing a black dress with black shoes. The brown pulls in the rest of the accessories too. On sale for $132.


Here’s where your hint of ethnic starts creeping in. This necklace by Nashelle is made from tiger wood pieces, and two hand cut gold leaf shapes and is just enough to let people know you’re trendy sure but also just stylish. I love the feminine gold circles with the weight of the wood. Priced at $129.

Finally, a handwoven ombre raffia and seagrass clutch from Mad Imports. $94.
