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.
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).
