WhatIWore: It’s a new day! A new season! So check out this new version of an old dress! In a solid attempt to perk up my mood, I decided a little DIY project was in order. I bought this dress years ago when I was pregnant with Felix. I also have it in black, which you’ve seen me wear a lot. This blue version? Not as much. The solution - a deeper shade of blue!
I had planned on doing a step by step DIY, but the resulting dress was not what I intended. I thought the embroidery would be a synthetic thread and stay white and the dress would be more navy. Turns out, I should have read the label instead of making assumptions, because this dress is actually rayon, not cotton. When I took it out of the washer I was pretty bummed out, but as it dried, I decided I actually like it a lot!
So in lieu of a DIY, here’s this: buy some dye, read the instructions thoroughly and you’ll be fine. Or maybe you’ll make a mistake and it’ll still turn out ok!
When: June 21, 2017
Shades: Karen Walker ‘Super Duper’
Dress: Free People, overdyed (more color versions here)
Sandals: Clarks (gift from a few years ago)
Bag: boutique in Hong Kong
Does anyone remember the good old days of WIW when I used to carry this bag all of the time? It’s one of the pieces I bought when I used to regularly work in Hong Kong and I bought it in a teeny tiny shop in Tsim Sha Tsui. I can’t remember what i paid for it, but it really needs to get back into use, don’t you agree?
