Ever had that one item of clothing that you just don't know what to do with? That item of clothing for a me is my one and only pair of white jeans from Dorothy Perkins. I've probably had them for over a year now and have only ever worn them twice (here and here). I just haven't gotten as much wear out of them as I thought I would have and that really annoys me because if you know me you'll know that I love to get my value for money. I don't know what it is about them; maybe it's the style of them or the fit or the fact that I always manage to get them dirty within minutes of wearing them but it's safe to say these white jeans have been a total and utter fail.
After toying around with the idea of throwing them out or giving them away I thought it would be much cooler to upcycle them as part of my second collaboration with Dylon and dye them blue (check out part 1 here). I love blue as you guys may know and the best way to get wear out of these jeans is to have them in a colour I know I'll definitely wear so I thought yes, let's go blue!
As you can see the jeans came out amazing!!! They are a true Jeans Blue colour and they do not have any patchy areas which I absolutely love. I just can't believe that I achieved such a great finish just from using hand dyes because trust me I was a litlle scetical. I am so happy I decided to dye these jeans blue and cant wait to wear them. I'll definitely be getting more wear out of them now that they're in a colour that I find easy to work into my wardrobe. What do you guys think of the finished look? Do you like them this colour? I'd also love to know what ways you guys ucyle your items. Leave a comment below. Talk soon xx
