I have actually stared at my beat up old Madewell chambray t shirt for weeks now, disputing over whether I need to let it go, or change it into something brand-new and exciting. I have actually chosen the latter choice, yippee! Motivated by the dip color denim shorts as well as pants detected on blogs and the runway (Dries did an incredible bleach work a few periods back I keep fantasizing regarding), I drew a little do it yourself dip color effect on my chambray switch up. As well as the most effective component, I acquired all the products from the.99 store for simply under $5! I love that place.
