We all know that I have been broke as shit lately. It should probably go without saying that I am also bored shitless, too.
I finally got bored enough to get creative. I cleaned out the closet and pulled out some clothes that I would wear if they just had a little alteration done to them.
I started with a pair of white skinny jeans. Who wears white jeans? And when I ask who wears white jeans, I mean WHO THE FUCK WEARS WHITE JEANS IN THE REAL WORLD? So I dyed them grey. I cannot wait to wear them. I think I shall wear them to the meeting tomorrow night with some happy shoes in honor of my sponsor's 29th clean date anniversary.
I also pulled three jackets out and sent them to the seamstress for alterations. When I get them back, I will post pictures.
I've found countless items that I love but don't wear because WHO THE FUCK WEARS WHITE WIDE-LEG PANTS IN THE REAL WORLD? I would totally wear these pants if I thought I could keep them white for more than .003 nanoseconds. i wore them once and had to take them to the cleaners the next day.
I'm also trying to figure out if I'm brave enough to try dying leather myself. I've got this hot-pink suede zip-up hoodie that has the greatest shape to it, and the fit is divine, and the leather is buttery soft and almost tissue thin and I would wear the hell out of the jacket if it weren't HOT PINK. I used to wear hot pink, until my mother told me it clashed with my red hair. I want to dye it oxblood. (Oxblood is a pretentious word that means BURGUNDY.)
Does anybody have any tips on dying leather? Because I'm bored as shit and too broke to go buy an oxblood leather jacket.
