HNT-New Year, New Series...Tie Dyes!

Last year I did the Useless Talents Series for HNT. It's been over a month since I've taken a new picture for HNT and my mind has drawn a blank. I have however, been up to my elbows in soda ash, rubber bands, and dye since Christmas. I've been tie dying my little heart out making presents and then doing some specially requested tie dyes for pals. Wracking my poor addled brain , I decided to do a tie dye series. Now I have talen some amount of flak about tie dye not being terribly fashion forward or mindful of all the nitpicky dos and don't s of fashion. For my first entry in the series I want to prove I know how to coordinate. Though these are not ones I made myself (those will come later in the series) I present you with my matching tie dye shirt and toe socks. I mean, really...what more do you want???

Happy HNT!

This is a series?
Dedicated to Timothy Leary? Jerry Garcia?

It shows great style and talent, but not much skin! Thanks MTL...xox

All the rage on the 'Runway' this season... At least I THINK that's what I saw the guy wearing who held the little glowing traffic cones, while he waved a large airplane along, as it taxied toward the runway at the airport in Philly... His tie-dyed socks and shirt were thermal of course... And bright orange instead of blue!

Damn long way to go for a funny, don't you think?

Very nice tie dyed ensemble indeed, Miss!
Can't wait to see what you've made!

Is soda ash something you get when you flick your cigarette ashes into a can of soda pop?
