Reiko, Chastity and me
Don't the ladies look great?
In The Fashionista's Closet:
Linen Dress: Banana Republic
Cognac wedges: Steve Madden
White Bag: Prada
Green necklace set: One of the jewelry sets that I am selling for $30, stay tuned for close up photos and descriptions.
The dress that I'm wearing used to be white. I wanted it because I was obsessed with Will & Grace; well actually I was obsessed with Grace's wardrobe and I would got to nbc.com every week and it would show you what designers Grace wore in every episode. (I take this fashion thing very seriously.) So Grace wore this white dress in a cruise episode and it was from Banana Republic and was then regular price. So I waited until the dress was marked down and the salesguy told me when it would be marked down even more and I was able to get it for a fraction of what Grace paid and felt very smug that I had put one over on Grace although I'm pretty sure Grace got hers for free.
I had it for years but it was limited in its wearability, I couldn't wear it to a wedding because it was, well, white so I would wear it to different events and add a belt or flowers at the waist and in my hair but because it was white everyone remembered it. So last year I decided to dye it. I bought two bottles of yellow Rit dye, followed the washing machine instructions and voila, it's perfect!
It was much darker as it came out of the machine but I still like the lighter finished result. What about you, have you been able to give an article of clothing a "new look" with dye?
