Before and After: Perfectly Pink Pearled Shorts

Once upon a time I had this wonderful pair of white capris that I just adored. They were so versatile and made every outfit seem expensive. So you can understand how devastated I was when they turned pink in the wash, right? I hope so! Anyway, after hours and hours of trying to bleach them this horrible pink stain remained:


Finally when I overcame my great loss I decided to use the stain to my advantage and take on the obvious...

...To die them even pinker (specifically a color called the 'rose of Paris'!). Then I cropped them, then I cropped them even more. To finish off I sewed on the pearls and turned them into this perfectly pink pair of pearled shorts. Enjoy!
