WIWW: I dye clothes edition

I'm addicted to Rit dye. It's the cheapest way to makeover your closet. Exhibits A and B:

A: This shirt used to be a bright melon color, (but sleeves were too long for Summer for me,) and it's now the perfect Fall color. (shirt from Sams)

B: this one used to be a pale gray and now it's a much more happy color. (JCrew)

Tank top: Old Navy
Skirt: gift
Belt: Fossil (from Restyle)

Fave outfit of the week:

Top: J jill (Restyle)
Skirt: Anthro
Shoes: Miz Mooz a few years ago

I came down the stairs in this and Sean said, "Well that's one way to be colorful." Yes, yes honey it is. I loved it!

Y'all have a great day!

You are brave! I've thought about dying one of my faded black dresses black to give it some oomph, but I haven't been able to yet! I just might have to after seeing your post!

I love that anthro skirt, such a GREAT color!

That yellow skirt!! I just die.. I love yellow and it's so adorable!!

I have some rit dye waiting to be used.. I saw a tutorial to just dye the bottom half of a tank top and the color kind of bleeds up. I've been meaning to do it, but there's so many projects on my list!

Amen sister. Literally "sister."
I love the easy $4 Rit Dye solution. I dye black over black more than anything. Keeps them looking clean and new, even if they're not new!
