Day 88: Welcome to Asheville Dress

Day 89: Leaf it All to Me Top
Day 87: Mocktail Dress

I was super excited/surprised when a couple Fella and I are good friends with surprised us with an early wedding present:  A free stay at a lovely Bed & Breakfast in Asheville, NC!  🙂  I love visiting Asheville.  It’s a fun bohemian mecca with lots of art, tasty restaurants, cool people, and beautiful scenery!  I knew just what I wanted to wear for the trip!

Neon Pink is not my color. 🙁

I’m not a fan of bright pink.  That’s why you don’t see me wearing much of it.  While this dress would have been perfect for Barbie, it’s completely wrong for moi.  🙂

I reached into my dye stash and pulled out my navy blue dye.

In the Navy...

Quite a few of you guys have asked about whether or not it’s dangerous to use dye in your washing machine.  I used to worry about this myself.  If you follow the instructions (printed inside the box) on how to use the dye, as well as how to clean your machine afterwards, you should be totally fine.  🙂

I submerged my pink dress into its dye bath.

Looking better!

After leaving my dress in the dye for about 45 minutes, I ended up with a much-improved hue!  🙂

Exploring Downtown 🙂

We stopped at a terrific restaurant called Lexington Avenue Brewery for lunch, where I couldn’t resist photographing my delicious Devil Beet Salad.  🙂

Yes...that's my fella giving my salad a "thumbs up" in the background.

After a fun day wandering about downtown, we settled in at the Blake House Inn for the evening, where we were welcomed with chocolate-covered stawberries and cider.  🙂

The fireplace wasn't too bad either. 🙂

I hope everyone else has had a wonderful weekend too!  🙂

Cheers!
