I got this top as a gift a while back, but never got around to wearing it because of the loud colors. So, I decided to give myself a little weekend project and over-dyed it. It wasn’t hard, but the polyester dye was pretty toxic . . . a whole bottle of vinegar and 6 machine washes later, the worn out little top still faintly smells of chemicals. Other than the smell, I think the dye job was a success, the print is still intact and has a subtle cameo affect. I think I’ll be wearing it a lot more now, which is great because I love the cut!
Last week, I got a nice little email from Sara Woodrow, a Swedish illustrator. She used one of my photos as inspiration for a set of diaries. I’m kind of in love with Swedes (fashion, people, energy, all of it!) so it was a super compliment. Tack Sara!
