Tracy Negoshian Test Drive

My mail man and my UPS man are two of my favorite people. When I spied the Tracy Negoshian return label in the mail, I was so excited. The Sheada tunic dress in Navy Blue Life Preservers that Tracy kindly sent to me was a true lifesaver on a recent adventure.

For the past week, I’ve been living in and out of a suitcase and let me tell you, it’s not fun. I’m picky when it comes to clothing, and insist on ironing things that have gotten wrinkled along the way. Multiply that times three once you add the minnies’ clothing and you can appreciate why easy and carefree clothing is a lifesaver.

Apart from being incredibly gorgeous, the Tracy Negoshian dress didn’t wrinkle at all. It came out of the suitcase after a long trip looking perfect. The same is certainly not true of my cotton shift dresses!

I wore the Sheada dress on a long day of touring in 100 degree temperatures with lots and lots of humidity. What better test drive could I give to this gorgeous dress?

The dress received oodles of compliments from strangers, which is always a bonus. Mark Twain said, “I could live for 2 months on a good compliment.” The many compliments the minnies and I received on this particular day have me in great shape for years!

The day was very hot and humid and we were in an un-air conditioned environment for the majority of the morning and afternoon. The fabric of the dress is light and kept me cool. By mid-afternoon, you can see that my hair and makeup have wilted in the summer humidity, but the Sheada tunic dress is still impeccable.

Do you know where I am? Any guesses? I’ll share all of the fun details with you in a post later this week. But I’ll leave you with two hints. Remember that I was just in Williamsburg, Virginia. Raleigh, North Carolina was the next destination on the trip. These pictures are taken in a different location. 

One last clue! The Sheada tunic dress even looks cute when I’m wearing it on a tractor. 

Many thanks to sweet Tracy Negoshian for her kindness.  You're a lifesaver!



  1. What a cute, cute dress! Your pictures look great :)

  2. You look stunning. It's almost as if that dress was made for you! (Are those navy McKims I spy with my little eye?)

  3. Love the dress. If I had to guess I would say that looks like maybe the Biltmore?

  4. I have one of her dresses and absolutely LOVE it! I'm planning on buying my next one soon.


  5. That is one cute dress :) I love finding dresses that are perfect for travel!

    I don't have any guesses as to where you are in the pictures, but I'm very glad that you look like you're having a great time :)

  6. I'm a HUGE Tracy Negoshian. I think Blue Eyed Bride turned me on to her a year and half ago. Or something like that. SUCH cute, good quality pieces.
