I am indulging my RATE side in lockdown.

Pics 1-2: driving down the CPW of these step hem jeans. They are getting close to their use by date but I’m pushing on. Worn with asymmetric hem tee (also a few years old). The necklace was made by an Etsy seller from an upcycled 19th century button. Now that’s old.

Pics 3-8: I have a WHBM jacket that I wear frequently when walking my dog. It has faded in the sun over time. I decided to overdye it. I did an old white tee at the same time. Pic 3 shows the jacket and tee before. Pic 8 shows the jacket and tee after. Good as new Even the jeans look better!

Pics 9-11: I had a go at tie dye. I was going for an “edgy” Raquel Allegra-ish tie dye. I rolled the tee tightly to get an ombré effect. I’m thinking about doing a teal version next. I’m happy with this but I have some improvements in mind. Worn with the same jeans (pushing on).

Hoping everyone is staying well and strong.
