Dip Dye

I'd like to show you a little suit that I dip dyed myself.  This thing has taken me almost a month to dye and if I told you the whole story of how I..........thrifted the suit for $4.95, dip dyed it, spilled the dye, got it all over the clothes I was wearing and then hung it up to dry outside.  Then a storm came and rained on the suit and washed most of the dye out then I bleached it to white again and dyed it again and this time the navy blue dye didn't turn out navy........you'd think that was craziness.  Oh wait, I did just tell you the whole story.  That isn't craziness.  Who could make up crap like that?  It's true.  That happened.  That is my dip dye story.  Sometimes things just don't work out but this weird funky color grew on me and I decided to work it.

So I worked it at a garden party.  Confidence is 99% of a look, right?  I slipped around the front of this old house and strutted like a rooster in my new sexy silver shoes.  The neighbors were watching and dogs were barking.   That's classy and appropriate.  






Suit:  Thrifted and DIY dye job
Shirt:  Old Navy
Shoes:  Ebay
Clutch:  DIY
Sunnies:  Prada inspired
Lips:  NYC Mahogany
Bracelet:  Thrifted and vintage

  42. You look SO chic! The clutch and the sunglasses make the look. What's going on with that clutch anyway? It looks almost like it's made out of construction paper. In a very cool fashion-y way. If that's possible :p
