visiting my parents in fresno.
i wore this out last night. this dress started out as the slip of a vintage dress which i cut apart. it also started out white. while trying it on last night i realized that i could double for someone attending a college toga party, so i ran into the kitchen and asked my mom, "what can i use to dye this, right now?"
my lovely mother brewed a pot of coffee and handed me a package of kool-aid.
i tied off a few sections for a tie-dyed effect, poured the coffee on, and then poured the kool-aid mixture on top. because i was in such a rush (it was already 10pm by the point) i didn't let it sit long enough, so the nylon didn't really absorb much... but it did absorb enough to turn a very washed out pink with ever-so-light tie-dyed rings. i can't wait to get home and dye it for real- i'm still deciding which colors.
worn with vintage combat boots and camo boots from the fashion district, AA bra, forever 21 necklace, anthropologie belt, h&m spike bracelet.
