Fashion Friday

Fashion Friday
Hey everyone, it’s time for another Fashion Friday!  Are you excited?  I am!  Today we are visiting Liz from Cotton and Curls, who is so tragically hip that I almost can’t stand it and simultaneously want to be her best friend and never be in a room with her at the same time because of her all-encompassing fabulousness.  Uh, anyway…
Liz has tons of fashion remakes on her blog, but I was particularly taken by the ones featuring bleach!  The only time I’ve used bleach to fix up my clothes was one time in high school, I noticed a small stain on the front of my white shirt right before I left the house, so I thought, “Hey!  I’ll just dab some bleach on here and be on my way!”  And by the end of the day it had burned a hole through the chest of my shirt.  So… I could use some pointers.  Here we go!

Not only did she bleach the blah right out of this rugby shirt, did you see how she also removed the collar and cropped the bottom?  Cute! And she makes it look so easy too. See it HERE.
Oh no!  Did a few splashes of Clorox ruin your favorite pants?  Bleach the whole darn pair!  I would be too terrified to try this, for fear of my pants dissolving right off me in the middle of Safeway or something, but they sure look cool.  See it HERE.
Ok, this one doesn’t use bleach, but instead dye.  Still, that’s using some sort of liquid to achieve a color different than the one you started with … so, same diff.  Whatevs.  Here she slowly lowered this tank-top into a pot of dye, 30 seconds for every couple of inches, to achieve a lovely ombre-effect. See what I mean?  She’s just so darn hip!  See it HERE.


And here’s one more bleachy redo from Kelly, who used a bleach pen to bring life to a thrift-store find.  Feel free to try this one at home, but don’t feel bad if your results aren’t quite as awesome, because Kelly just happens to be an incredible henna artist by trade. My design would probably be a smiley face. That turned into a hole. See more on her blog Kelly Caroline.

    This is ridiculously amazing! I may be living in the stone ages, but I’ve never seen anything like it! So cool!

    If only I had that vision.
    So very creative indeed.
    Bleach on!

    I look at this stuff and feel like a total loser. I can’t believe how creative some people are. And that last shirt is freakin’ amazing. And yeah, I’d be with you on the smiley face with the hole.

    Those are each awesome! Love Fashion Friday! 😉 If there’s one thing I love just as much as DIY, it’s clothes, accessories and shoes!

    Great stuff, ladies!

    LOL that you said your design would probably be a smiley face (MINE, TOO!) that turned into a hole (that would be me, too!) 🙂
