I have an obsession with sunsets. It hasn’t always been this way. It seems to me as if one day I realized that sunsets exist- and I have been in total awe and wonderment ever since. I have developed this sixth sense about them- knowing that sometimes they will be mild and blur with some soft hints of pink and purple and sometimes, if it’s been raining, it will be a toss up between a cloudy gloom that simply turns to darkness- or if the sun can manage to break through- amounts a confetti of clouds, it might be one of the most beautiful things you have ever seen. When I shot these photos of my eating with Sally– I was excited that the muted tones of the approaching sunset- would complement the muted grays and bleached apricot tones that had been created when I bleached this dress.
I created this a few weeks back- excited at the possibilities of deconstructing and reconstructing an XXL mens shirt from Goodwill. This is an extremely easy and very fun project. I love this piece because it can be easily layered, worn as a top, over shorts, etc- and with the muted colors and relaxed fit- it’s just an easy way to add those post-apocalyptic-chic feels to any outfit.
So now that we are done swooning over how well the final product turned out- let me show you how its done:
Do you guys want to see all of the different ways this creation can be styled? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to see your bleach projects with thrifted finds!
