This jacket seems like a brand new one since I dyed it. Renew, renew*!

Jacket, Charlotte Russe (overdyed). Dress, London Times (handed down and shortened). Shoes, Linea Paolo. Brooch, Beaded Garden. Necklace, Macy’s. Bag, Payless.

I wore this jacket and dress (and these shoes) together on a business trip in June. I like the combo much better now that the jacket is green.

*Logan’s Run reference. I love that movie.

I totally agree with you that jacket has new life with the green dye.... looks perfect with the dress.
Enhances the color even more !

Ooooh, I like it better green too! Wish I was crafty like that. Or, at least less lazy than I am now. :)

Smartness! The jacket looked great to begin with, but you're right about the green. And of course it looks excellent all together.

I, too, have a khaki/beige jacket that needs such renewal. Hmmm.

Do you dye in your washing machine, or in the sink? 'Any tips for a fledgling?

Wow. You are inspiring me into dying (sp?) a few of my pieces too.

A-Dubs - I do dye in the washing machine. Look for a post in early October on my experiences with Rit dye in the washer.
