Prom 2013

So I’m finally posting about prom. Which was back in April. Yes, yes, I know, just a tad bit late! Anyway, better late than never. Right?

So my prom was on April 27th 2013. And I had a blast! It was so much fun.

I was so excited to go. Manly because being home schooled I thought I would never go to prom. So this was a big deal for me!

So what was next? Dress shopping of course! I really, really loved my dress. A friend actually found it for me!

Again I had a great time and I’m so thankful that I got to go! Here are some pictures.

Proud to represent

My cousin recently spent four months in Kokhanok Alaska teaching at their school.

In some of her pictures i saw that she had this amazing hoodie for the Konhanok Warlords. I thought it was epic and I wanted one.

So I sent her the money to buy one and I just got it the other day!

It fits perfectly! It’s so comfy and I absolutely love it. And what makes it even better is that know else in my small town has one.

So Sarah, thank you so much for bringing this back for me! It’s awesome! I am proud to represent the Konhanok Warlords.

Dyeing Jean Shorts

So the other day I did a post on how to bleach shorts. Today I’m doing a tutorial on how to dye them. I had a great time doing this and I just love how they turned out!

All you need is a pair of rubber gloves, a tub, some Rit dye, and something to mix it up with.

You wanna start with some white or bleached shorts. You can see my tutorial on bleaching here.

First thing you do is fill your tub with 3 gallons of HOT water, and hot as you can get.

Then add about half your bottle of Rit and stir it around then place your shorts in the water.

It’s recommended on the Rit dye bottle that you use the whole thing when dying light things but my shorts came out plenty bright with just half a bottle. You can always add more later if you want.

So once you have the shorts in the dye set a timer for 30 minutes and move the shorts around constantly.

Just know that they will look darker when they’re wet. So dye them darker then you want them to be and then when you rinse them and dry them they will be about the color you wanted.

If your 30 minutes are up and you still want your shorts darker leave them in for another 20 minutes constantly moving them.

Once you are happy with your shorts empty your dye and rinse the shorts with warm water gradually getting cooler and cooler until the water running from your shorts is clear.

Next put them in the washing machine all by them self and run a light cycle with a light detergent, more of the dye will get rinsed out. Then throw them in drier and you’re done!

This is my shorts after I rinsed them

Bleaching Jean Shorts

So I finally got around to bleaching a pair of shorts! It was a lot of fun so I thought I would put up a tutorial.

Before

After

I made these shorts from a pair that I got at goodwill. You can see how I did it  here

So the first thing you need is a tub or something you can soak the shorts in. I used a plastic drawer.

Next mix 2 gallons of water and 3 cups of bleach. You need something you can stir this will.

So this is right after they went in

IMG_1684

 

At this point they’ve been in for 2 hours

IMG_1685

As you can see they are lighter but not white. So I turned them over for about at an hour and then I turned them right side up again for another hour or so.

So this after about 4.5 hours

IMG_1688

So after 4.5 hours I decided to take them out. Depending on how dark your denim is you might need to leave them in longer. But don’t leave them in for a really long amount of time  because the bleach will just wear down the fabric.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

 

 

DIY Cut Off Shorts

So today I was in a crafty mood and I made some cut off shorts out of some bermuda shorts from goodwill. They were only $3.50 so it didn’t really matter if I totally messed them up or not! But I didn’t mess up, so that made me happy.

So here is a tutorial on how to make them.

Things you will need:

A pair of scissors

A pair of pants/long shorts to cut off

A pencil

So now that you know what you need lets get started.

This is what the shorts looked like before

IMG_1662

So the first thing you do is try them and look in the mirror to get and idea about where you want to cut.

Take your pencil and mark the length you want your shorts to be. Then cut about 2″ below that line so that you have a little wiggle room. You can always take away more but you can never put it back.

So once you have that line it should look something like this

IMG_1663

Next cut along that line and try to make both legs as even as possible. But if their a little off that’s okay, you can always even them up.

Next try them on again and see how the length looks. Keep cutting little by little until you have your desired length. Once you’re satisfied with the length your done!

This is what my shorts looked like when I was done

IMG_1668

If your shorts have a lot of white threads in them you can pull on those and make them frayed if you like.

So I’m really happy with the way these shorts turned out and I hope you liked this tutorial!

I’m Going to Prom

So this past weekend I got asked to prom! I’m so excited! My Mom, Grandma, Little Sister and I went shopping. I tried on about 5 dresses until I found one.

Its black and I will have turquoise jewelry as the accents and maybe something in my hair. So here are a few pictures of just the dress because I don’t have the whole outfit yet. I’m missing the shoes! And shoes are very important!

I’m still not sure what I will do with my hair.

I will put up some pictures when I have the whole outfit together! But for now, here is the dress!

Burgundy and White OOTD (Outfit of The Day)

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day.

Our weather is starting warm up (yay!) so I thought this would be a great time to do an OOTD (Outfit of the day) post that has elements of winter in it but transitioning to spring. The day was warm enough for a t-shirt but too cold to wear shorts.

My pants are more of a winter time burgundy color and my top is a bright white which I think is great for spring! I really like the way this outfit came together and I thought it was a great way of pulling in the spring time while still having a little bit of winter since it’s still a little chilly.

So I hope you enjoy this post, I had a really fun time with my mom taking these pictures!

My top is from "White Stage" and my pants are the brand "No Boundaries"
