There were lots of these faded, brownish spots at the bottom of the dress...
...as well no sort of straps to keep the halter up. I ended up pinning it to the hanger to get a full view.
To maintain the ivory color I tried washing the piece, however there was still a substantial amount of discoloration at the bottom. To fully hide the marks, I thought a color change would do the trick!
What color would you go with??
I went to my trusty stash of RIT dye and went with Scarlet!!!
In went the dress (along with a few other pieces I wanted to give a facelift)...
...and in went the dye!
After the piece was dyed, it was time to make some straps! I was playing around with a few of the ribbons and trims that I had and ended up going with this fun black cording.
I put a safety pin at the end of the trim and pushed it through the seam opening on one side of the dress...
...and then the other.
New straps and new color, here we go!!
I had a little birthday shindig over the weekend that I needed a party dress for, and this was just the thing to wear!
I paired it with my most comfortable shoes ever (Michael Kors!) and grabbed a vintage suede purse with stripes on it.
I thought the bag tied in nicely with the straps on the dress! Stripes all around!
This is such a fun fit and flare piece...
...not to mention that it's literally the most comfortable thing to wear!
I celebrated with my birthday partner-in-crime LC (we're both 10/15-ers) and got to hang with all of my favorite people over the weekend.
Unfortunately the only pic on my phone was the one I took with my fave gal LC, who had the most rocking hair ever.
I have to say, I think I'd wear this dress each year just because it's SO comfy! What have been some of your favorite outfits/accessories to wear on your birthday?
