meet my new pants!
not only has my attitude about shopping changed this year, but the way i care for my clothes has taken a turn for the better, too. in the past, when something got a hole or started to fade, i would immediately get rid of it. these days, i consider whether i can do something to fix it first. can i patch it? dye it? cut it apart?
my favorite fix is dyeing. it’s like having a brand-new item of clothing. believe it or not, these pants were blue jeans once upon a time. i used to wear them all the time, but they started looking really faded and i moved on, leaving them to sit in a drawer.
those days are gone.
