I've been wearing this pair of tan booties for a few years now. We've been really good pals, but they've just been getting dirtier and dirtier and dirtier.
Here's the thing - I got them on super sale from Cotton On. I'm talking like $10 on sale, ya feel?!
So having to pass them along isn't the worst of times knowing they weren't an investment piece of any kind. However I broke them in to perfection.
And that's the part that I don't want to move on from!!
I know I can do it, but I just can't right now ;) SO, that's when I thought I could make them really fab one more time! Hello dye!
I thought that Rit's Evening Blue would be just the color to hide "Dirty Tan" (self named!)
I grabbed a foam brush and created a dye bath with boiling water and a few tablespoons of dye. (I used a plastic cup to dip!)
It was amazing to see how the shoes were taking to the dye! They're not leather, but just a textured cotton, so the dye absorption was on point!
After a few more coats, we were good to go!
I LOVE that the dye hides all the dirt now! So sneaky, yet SO good.
Magic hour + new boots = a v happy Marisa!
But I don't think we're done just yet...the wheels started turning to come up with another DIY on top of this DIY. Yeah, it's like Inception, but just go with it for the time being. 😂
