this month’s Common Creativ
post gives a twist to a Dark & Stormy and instructions on how to give new
life to your old
simply put: switched out the rum for tequila and added some juicy fruit
thanks Scott for doing a fabulous job of modeling!

as many bloggers out there are sporting ombre’d shorts and trying the technique at home it wasn’t hard to find tutorials explaining the process. i found that many ladies were just dipping them into the bleach then trying to give a fade manually. going back to my days of tie-dying i thought using rubberbands would give a nice fade effect and as it turns out..it does!
it was quite easy, read about it on CommonCreativ in further detail!
sidenote: on CC i used orange dye around the top of the ones shown above, later i rebleached…dyed them a denim color and then redyed. i just wasn’t TOTALLY in love with the yellowish look and therefore kept changing it up until i got it exactly how i wanted and now i have a “new” pair of shorts i love!
don’t be afraid to experiment, you never know.. one step could take you to another step which could lead to a delightfully wild outcome!
