I’d like to *think* I can tie-dye. But then I remember that Pax went as “Tie-Dye Guy” for Halloween two years ago, and not only was his resulting costume a very light pink/purple/turquoise blend (aka my 5th grade standard edition), but my laundry room also still shows the “scars” from that idea.
Our New Tie-Dye Method? Custom Design By Dye It Pepper
But my friend Jackie Pepper recently launched her own tie-dying business, Dye It Pepper, and after one look I knew I’d never tie-dye again. Some of you have that DIY bent…this girl? Does NOT.
So I sent Jac over a white denim jacket I hadn’t been using much (among a few other pieces — see ’em all here in this ridiculous TikTok we put on IG) and was then BLOWN AWAY when she sent back this gorgeousness:
I just can’t even. This is a level of tie-dye I can never hope to achieve. Instead I’m starting to hoard white cotton clothing in the hopes of sending Jac another sack.
Dye It Pepper: How Jackie’s Custom Tie-Dye Works
You can either send in your own pieces for Jackie to turn into tie-dyed gorgeousness, or you can shop her store. If you opt to send in existing pieces, check out Sacks By Jac. If you go this route, Jackie will mail you a return envelope (shipping is included in the price), as well as a little questionnaire so she can customize the tie-dye for you. Stuff your stuff in the sack, send it in (with the questionnaire) and wait for your gorgeousness to arrive.
But if you don’t want to wait…her store is reallllllly tempting. The cropped cardi (shipping out July 27, so you still have time to pick your tie-dye) is calling my name.
cami: Cami NYC silk cami (size small)
shorts: Levis 501 shorts – I sized up (wearing a 27) and they’re still pretty snug. The white has no give, and seems to run smaller than other 501 washes. They look super-cute, tho, so I had high hopes…but sadly, they are NOT comfortable when worn out to dinner. LESSON LEARNED. I just ordered these, hoping they’re more comfortable (but would’ve ordered these — on super sale — if my size was still in stock).
accessories: necklace 1 | necklace 2 – I rounded up several other necklaces like these here, if interested.
