I DYE TO LIVE

(everything thrifted/vintage from head to toe)
vintage crochet sweater DIY dipped dyed by me, vintage Frye DIY cropped booties, vintage ethnic fringe bucket bag, Target trouser socks, vintage Smokey the Bear hat, vintage southwestern buckle belt, turquoise cross, elephant and vintage cross necklaces, Mad Lady turquoise and triple stone rings and vintage skintight mini dress underneath

10 years ago I would have been the girl you beat up for making her own clothes...you know what I'm talking about?? Hahaha, nowadays who gives a fuck!!

Yeah I DIYed majority of my outfit, sweater and booties. The sweater was dipped dyed in "black" but turned out this faded navy purple which I LOOOOVE! Which turned this plain old crochet into fucking cro-HEEEEY!! I'm telling you a little bit of Rit dye can go a long way. Even save a life!!

Now the booties I have had like FOREVER and only bought them cause they were vintage Frye boots. LABEL WHORE! They were all kinds of jacked up, knee hi and too wide for my legs so I whacked them by cutting off the top. Then folded it inside until I got the perfect ankle height and sealed with Shoe Goo. Me likey cause they were already worn in, beaten up and scrunched! They was pretty much asking for it!
Now I can stop obsessing over the ones online that are waaaaaay outta my budget, like up to frickin' 200-300 bucks dude! Like my wallet is just hurting thinking about it.
So if you got some old knee hi boots laying around the house I recommend you cut them for a fresh new look!

Love y'all,
Virgin

I admire the fact that you don't go and buy everything in Zara, but you really find your pieces cautiously in thrift shops and even customize it... that's what makes you unique!
