The only good thing about awesome friends moving away is that you suddenly have an excuse to visit cool new places you’ve never been to before. :) When my good friends Heather and Evan moved back to their hometown of Philadelphia, I was bummed.
But then I remembered that they’re only a lucky cheap flight away! :)
I just needed something comfy to wear for my flight! When I found this dress for $1 at one of my favorite thrift stores, I thought it would do nicely!
But then I took a closer look…
The dye in the dots on this dress had some serious bleeding going on!
I decided to just go with it. I liked the brown and purple of the dress, so I pulled out a couple of bottles of dye!
Now. If I just try to dye my dress a solid color, those splotches will still show through. I boiled a kettle of water, added my dress, and then poured in a bit of brown dye…
Then I added some purple!
I let my dress soak for an hour.
I threw the dress in my washing machine to rinse it, then dried it, then was ready to head up north! :)
My new dress is definitely funkier, but I challenge you to spot the original dye bleeding. Seriously. Just go ahead and try! ;)
I was super-comfy during my flight, but needed a bit of additional warmth when I arrived in Philly. Luckily, I brought my fave 10-year-old denim jacket with me. :)
I had a blast catching up with my wonderful friends.
Of course, drinks quickly followed!
Stay tuned for more Philly adventures!
