Day 330: Dark & Stormy Jeans

Day 331: Herbie Tunic

Today’s refash comes from my own closet! 🙂  I have owned this pair of jeans for 12 years.

Herm.

I never wear these.  The fit is great, but I just hate the extremely dated wash (from back when that sort of dingy look was “in”).  :/

I don’t know why it never occurred to me that all I needed to do to turn these jeans of last resort into my new faves was a bit of dye!  🙂

Double Trouble! 🙂

You can see I’m using a dark blue mixed with a bit of black.  I really want to get these as dark as I possibly can!

I’m dyeing a couple of other things in there as well! 🙂

I left the jeans in their dye bath for about an hour.  A thorough rinse and dry followed.

Check ’em out now!  🙂

Stylin’ with a LBD! 🙂

And just in case some of you wonder if I’m hiding anything under my little black dress…

See? The dye job went flawlessly! 🙂

I felt quite cool in my newly darkened jeans, and even struck a hipster pose!  😉

I wore my new jeans for a fun happy hour at Hunter Gatherer with some fabulous people!  🙂
