Updated Maxi

What do you do when one of your favorite maxi dresses (previously worn in this post, this one and this one) starts to look faded from washing?  Well, if you're me, you buy a box of RIT Dye and dye it. I really liked the original print of this maxi dress and wasn't ready to part with it, so dying it black was a practical solution.

How do you extend the wear of your well worn (and loved) items?

you have been dying up a storm, and everything looks so fresh and new afterwards!

do you have any tricks for keeping your dyed items looking fresh? Mine would always fade after a few washes.

Thanks! I'm trying to be more strategic with my clothing purchases so dying is a good medium to get more wear out of stuff I already have. I don't really have tricks to keep dyed items for fading other than hand washing.

I never would have thought that you dyed the dress black-- it looks like a pretty, lightly printed black maxi! That jacket fits you perfectly, too.

I'm a big fan of rit dye! I've used it to save a couple white cardigans that were starting to look a little big grungy! This dress is gorgeous, so it's great you were able to save it!!
