Day 8

Hey Mr. dj

Casual Saturday, now that I can commit to. So these are some of my staple chill clothes from years past. I don’t know if I mentioned, but I went to fashion school in Savannah for a hot minute (or a hot degree) and while I was there I got on this massive dying kick. It is super easy to do!

Here’s what I suggest. Invest in a crock pot. Get some Rit Dye. Always add salt. Go nuts. I used an African technique for the leggings and tied string around seeds to get the circle effect. The “scarf” is actually just a strip of extra fabric from my collection, and the cardi is straight dipped. It is the most gratifying experience, if you guys try it pulease send pix and it’ll give you major props.

Organize those records bwoy ^.~ xx.wasabipear

***Today’s Outfit: LBD worn top zip front. Long spectrum dyed strip of fabric. African inspired leggings. Doctor’s coat turned periwinkle. Felt ball cap that Sheena gave me.

Oooh! Let me play Africa Trivia geek. Reggae Bloodlines album: Bob Marley and other famous reggae artists were/are Rastafarians, who worshipped Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia. The school that Wasabipear is rising money to build is in Ethiopia. Your total is looking awesome, and so it today’s outfit.

What Ken Be Done

How *wonderful* to see this great celebration of tie-dying, especially influenced by African traditions.

If UP fans like it, I encourage you to also check out the *amazing* skills of these mostly young African refugees and their fashion label in Australia: I’ve not done nearly as well as you wasabipear, but here’s me wearing their great leggings:
Congratulations on your style and fundraising so far…

Been enjoying seeing what you do with this two piece outfit. Really like the dyed pieces, I love that kind of stuff. I already have everything needed and I am so tempted.
