Vest: from Korea / Dress: DIY (originally American Apparel) / Sneakers: Andr√© Paris / Leather Backpack: Vintage Prada / Eyewear: Vintage from Cherry Bomb / Challenge Talisman Necklace: Pyrrha
This dress used to be light grey. It’s one of the most comfortable dresses out there, but I found that I wore it less and less because the grey was too light and too casual for my taste considering its rayon t-shirt material. I did what any DIY enthusiast would do– I dyed it a darker hue. After dyeing, I found that the thread stayed light grey and I’m sure it’s because it’s made of polyester fiber (which is generally resistant to regular dye)– I quite like it!
