    DIY: Bleach-Dyed T-shirt

    FashionBlog_BleachTees

    Vintage concert t-shirts have always been a timeless treasure, but GoodwillMV has a trick up our sleeves (pun intended) for you to rock this look with even more attitude.

    Transform your favorite vintage concert t-shirt into an art piece that is uniquely your own this season with this easy, no-fail, DIY bleaching method. In this blog, we will talk about how you can DIY your very own vintage t-shirts that don’t break the bank with just a few simple steps and common household items.

    Gather your supplies and set up shop in a well ventilated area – it’s time to get creative! First, pour your bleach (we used basic Clorox Bleach) into your spray bottle and secure the top.  Now, it’s time for the fun! The amount of splatter you want on your masterpiece depends on the distance of the bottle to the t-shirt (more spatter = more space). Have fun with this, you really can’t go wrong! The color will get lighter as time goes by so be patient. You can see your end result within as little as an hour, but you will get an idea of where and how your piece will turn out within minutes of the bleach application.

    Another method you can use for the DIY bleach-dye effect is using the bleach cap method.  This method is messy, but totally worth it! To accomplish this effect, just pour your bleach into the cap of the bleach bottle and throw it on your t-shirt! You can be as tactful or as carefree as you want with this effect. Want to use both methods? Go for it! You were born to be wild.

    Now it’s time to wait…remember your results will not completely process for about an hour. Be patient, grab your favorite pouch of Capri Sun, and rock out to your favorite throwback jams – your epic creation will be ready soon! When it’s done and to your liking, throw it in the wash on a normal cycle and air dry. Now, you are ready to rock and roll!

    Let us know what you thought of this DIY and be sure to tag us in your photos using the hashtag #LWIFGoodwillMV. You can find these t-shirts and more at our Vintage Vinyl Goodwill Pop-Up in honor of Record Store Day 2018 on April 21, 2018 at Dublin Roasters Coffee in Frederick, MD from 12-4PM!

    HAVE FUN AND ROCK ON!

    If you thought sequins were just for pageant queens, crafting, and 80’s nostalgia, think again! This Cachet shift dress paired with a rhinestone coin pouch is the perfect marriage of glitz and glamour. The loose-fitting shape of the dress allows for breathing room and the exposed shoulder slits provide a classy peek of skin. Be bold in black and sparkle in the night in this unforgettable ensemble.
