Seeing Red




Took full advantage of my day off today and took on a little DIY project. I've owned these red jeans for a while stopped wearing them so I was thinking of ways I could transform them. I came up with the idea of dip dyeing them. This was my first attempt at anything like this. It actually looks really good up close, it fades nicely, but I'm not the biggest fan of how it just starts into black so bluntly. Couldn't figure out a way to make it transition a little nicer. Also, when I'm wearing them I feel like I'm wearing riding boots. Regardless, I do really like them!

Oh, and I'm taking my camera in tomorrow so hopefully that will be the end of these shitty pictures streak. I've also been looking into getting a Canon Rebel T1i so I can record my stupid videos in HD. Nothing like dancing around in 1080p!

Haha, I can't stop watching Die Antwoord videos on youtube. Srsly, need their album... if they even have one.

I actually like how the jeans didnt turn out to be gradient, but I bet if you SOAKED them with water before and then dyed it would be better? It looks like you just dipped them dry, haha.
And I also just really like this outfit... reminds me of a certain accesories line I've seen before... hmmmm

At first I thought you were wearing knee high boots with the jeans. They look great though, I actually like the sudden cut off of colour.

HELL YES TO THESE PANTS.

Um, I might steal this idea. I too have red pants at the back of my closet, bought at Top Shop years ago, and never really worn.

Red pants always seem to need something, and I think this is it!
