Now I know everyone is hitting the whole DIY bleaching thing hard so I decided I wouldn't do this post as a DIY, there are so so many good ones already available online which would probably be more understandable than if I were to write one out so, I thought I'd tell you about my clever money saving idea ££ instead.
I left my job about two weeks ago now, so its all about budgeting my money, obviously I'm going to still buy a few odd bits but I have a lot of clothes I don't wear which I thought I could re-work so I love them and can't wait to wear them .. Bleaching is a cheap/quick option of how to re-vamp clothes.
Any bleach will do and the are three main methods;
/All over bleaching
/Tie Dye Bleaching
The denim jacket above has been in a few posts already on here, I found it for £1 in a charity shop, it's real Levis however its a man's size large.. so I've always felt abit manly when wearing it but you know for £1 I couldn't complain, so I got my trusty bottle of bleach and tried to bleach it all over to a light pale denim..
This didn't actually work out as I wished but I like what has happened much much more! It's gave me a kind of tie dye/un-even effect all over which I'm pretty happy with.. I feel like it looks abit more feminine now to+looks alot more I hate to use words like 'indie' and 'cool' but I would feel alot more confident wearing this now.
I also had abit of bleach left of so I thought waste not, want not& popped in this plain lilac t-shirt which I bought from M&S for £6.. obviously you could find a plain tee in a charity shop which would be even more of a saving? But I just rubbed it in a tiny bit of bleach and rinsed it, its looked kind of cosmic when I first took it out but the bleach was quicker than I was at washing away the colour so bleached abit more than I wanted. After I dried it I studded round the collar area using just six studs and then used scissors to de-constructed the fabric in various places just for abit of a difference really.
So really, I have created a new top&a new jacket without spending anymore money than before..
I'm pretty glad with how the garments look, I'd say it was an hour well spent, maybe give it ago yourself?
