What's Old Is New Again
So I ordered a dress off Downeast Basics (love their clothes) a long time ago and when it arrived I wasn't totally in love. Not really what was shown on the website.... It was a beige color that just got lost in my skin tone.
No belt or jewelry could make me feel better about it. Well, instead of letting it sit in my closet for the next five years I decided to try something to salvage it. I dyed it red!!!
I was going for coral so I used half the bottle of dye and only let it sit for about 5 minutes instead of 30-60. I LOVE the result and the way the belt pops now. And it's a color I would probably never be drawn to in the store so now I have some diversity in my closet. This picture isn't really doing it justice either....it's really pretty in person.
Speaking of makeovers....I'm upholstering my TOMS!!!!
DIY Fabric Covered Toms
I first saw the image in Pinterest HERE. She also sells them on Etsy HERE. And if you remember a few months back I showed you the unfortunate little hole in the toe mine had. This is the perfect way to get some more miles out of the most comfortable shoes ever. If anyone is interested I can do a little tutorial while I finish the other one.
