Oh, this chevron dress.  It's been my favorite thing to remix ever since I bought it (examples here, here, here, here, and oh yeah, here too), but it was recently out of commission for a little while after having a run in with the dryer.  Specifically, one of the straps got caught up in the lint trap and ripped apart. (This seems to be happening quite a bit lately with my strappy stuff - anyone else have a dryer that eats their clothes?) Anyway, after pouting about it for a few weeks, I finally sat down at the sewing machine and Frankenstein'ed the strap back together.  It's not perfect, but with a nice denim vest thrown over, no one is the wiser (except for when I blurt it out all over the internet, of course).

Next on the list of items I ruined -- this vest.  I washed it for the first time, and it came out with white spots on the back, even though my washing machine hasn't seen bleach in months.  If this post has taught us anything, it's that I clearly can't be trusted doing simple household chores.  Anyone who's better at doing laundry have any suggestions for how to remove them?

Also, linking up today.
