My Powder Pink Dye Job...

Hey ya'll! I'm back with another dye job (see my most recent one HERE) and I'm not done yet! I had these pants in a bag of clothes to giveaway before I got bit by the omgIhavetodyeeverythingIown bug. So I'll say it again, don't get rid of clothes that you can breathe life back into! These pink pants started out khaki and flared (see below). Flared pants tend to make me look dumpy because of the fact that I'm so freakin' tall (I'm 5'4, lol) ok, flared pants don't always make me look dumpy, just sometimes. So before I dyed my pants, I found this tutorial that showed me everything I needed to know on how to take my pants from flared to skinny and more fabulous than before...  
In addition to dying my khakis, I threw in a white tee,
that wasn't so white anymore and a pale pink sweater.
I used Rit Dye in petal pink, it looks more like a powder pink, or baby shower pink in my opinion, but it falls right into the pastel trends that were all over the runways at New York Fashion Week for Spring 2012. Woo! Thrifty and on trend! Double score! See a few more pics HERE
