Shen Dove Style: How to Rescue a Dress from the Donate Pile

How to Rescue a Dress from the Donate Pile

Earrings: Buffalo Exchange; Belt: Target (similar)

Happy Friday! I wore this dress which I found at a clothing swap last summer.   As a simple dress, I got a little bored with the color and was thinking about tossing it in the to-donate pile for my next thrifting trip.  But I decided to get a box of RIT Dye and see if I could give it a fresh look with color.  I'm happy with the results.  For a person who doesn't have sewing skills (yet), a box of dye is my favorite way to give clothing a new look.  If you have one, what's your favorite way to rescue items from the donate pile?

I've decided to move my links of the week post to Saturday, so expect to see it tomorrow!  
Have a lovely weekend.

Love the color. I think orange complements our skin tone very well....
P.S. How do you stretch your twist-outs?

Thanks lady! I do twist outs with whatever products I have at-hand. Currently using Oyin juices and berries, Vatika oil, and Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk.

Thanks! I'm so happy I dyed it rather than trading it in.

Great idea - I love it! I've considered doing this to a few items before but I never actually have. I'm always worried I'll destroy it, haha.
