This old blog is getting repurposed. This is going to be for DIY/health/recipes. Everything the fabulous, health-conscious broke girl needs.
I'll keep my tumblr for stream of consciousness, mood-boarding and inspiration, and I'll make this one a bit more personal.
The inspiration for this project started with this photo:
The white-out American flag. It's debatable whether or not it's photoshopped, or really is a bleached flag, but I am unstoppable. This will be home decor, as I want to hang it on the white wall of my bedroom. First and foremost: finding a flag made of cotton. Most are weather-durable, synthetic fibers that would be a bitch and a half to bleach, if not impossible. But thankfully I found one at The Flag Store, it's the heavy-duty cotton version.
4 feet by 6 feet? Yes please. Go big or go home.
But, before dying, I figured I'd get in a gnarly self-timer sesh and feature the bikini I got for the summer. My sister got it for me for Christmas (as per my request) and it's really excellent. We all know I support handmade, so this is an Etsy store purchase, from a swimsuit maker in Hawaii. It's either actually much darker in person, or I'm just so pale, I make it look dark. But it's more tan than nude.
And I am on a serious nude kick right now.
But without further adieu, here's a big fucking flag pre-bleach.
Now, on to the bleaching process!
