Before you start: Cover your surface with the trash bag – it’ll keep the dye from making a mess and make for easier clean up.
Step 1: Rubber band your shorts in any pattern you desire.
Step 2: Lay out your dye in cups with water.
Step 3: Dip each rubber-banded area in the different color dye.
Allow for it to dry for 24 hours.
Step 4: Remove Rubber Bands.
Throw them in the laundry! Without washing anything else (unless you want to dye your clothes as well!), put your newly dyed shorts into the washer and let it run. Don’t worry about it staining the washer or all the colors coming out – neither of these will happen. Once they’ve been washed, dry them as you normally would.
The FABULOUS fashion blogger Lainy Hedaya, of HauteInhabit.com, came to visit us in our showroom this week for a sneak peak of our Fall 2012 line. We decided to pick her brain a little with a few questions.
Why did you initially decide to start a blog?
I started the blog this winter when a friend read a few tweets of mine about styling and convinced me to start a website. I’ve been working in the industry since high school, but the blog has definitely opened my eyes to much more and I love it.
What denim trends are you particularly inspired by this season?
I really like boyfriend cuts but something that doesn’t fall off the waist. I also like printed denim especially when it’s through acid wash. It’s all about textures and prints this season. The crazier the better!
What is your favorite denim cut?
Skinny jeans are a favorite. They are the easiest to pull together.
You seem to love jeans! How many would you say you own?
If I had to guess, well over 40 pairs.
