First up, we have this dress. I have very little green in my closet and that's something I've been looking to remedy. When I saw it at the thrift store I was immediately sold. I love the shape (I think this is one of those cases were something doesn't photograph well but looks decent in person) and the color was just what I was looking for (it's deeper than it looks in the pictures). BUT it had black marks all over the skirt. I talked the girl at the register into knocking 50% off (down to $4!) because if it was permanent marker then I would feel like a chump for paying $8.
I wasn't sure how to tackle the marker so it sat in [one of] my repair pile[s] for a couple weeks. Finally I stuck some stain treatment on it and tossed it in the wash. Aaaand it all came out. Simple as that. I stitched a falling spot in the hem and now I have a perfectly wearable green dress (but not a real green dress that's cruel).
I'm really looking forward to wearing this one with my newly thrifted blazer as soon as it finally cools down!
