how are you? :) i'm good. had my first saturday off work in ages so i spent the day taking pictures for art with some friends, and now i'm just jamming which is so weird to say at half 5 on a saturday! tomorrow though, i'm helping dress models for the ss13 mens jw anderson show eeeek which i'm super super excited about! but i've got to work afterwards then out for fathers day so i'm gonna be so tired.
so today i wanted to show you mine and my lovely friend alice's first ever attempt at tie-dying which we think went really well. coincidentally, alice and i both went for light denim to pair it with but i hope you like the way we've styled the purple tie dye! :)
jacket - topshop
mens lee jeans - ebay, customised by alice
shoes - dr martens
necklace - vintage
jacket - blitz
skirt - urban outfitters, personally customised
shoes - office, painted with acrylics/fabric paints
so what do you think?
we had no idea where to find the fabric dye, so we tried in wilkinson where we found it at £2.99 a packet and so we bought a couple of different colours. and picked up some cheap mens t shirts (which are always the best quality!) from a market stall. there are instructions on the back of the packet, but we filled my bath with 6l of water and put the dye in, adding 150g of salt which makes the dye stay in. watched a couple of videos on youtube on how to get the effect and voila!
alice is really into customisation as well, and so she cut and studded her shorts herself. i tried diptie-dying my skirt and it didn't completely work but i really liked the pink colour mixed with the acid wash at the top. anyway that's all from me tonight, i hope you like our looks!
