'Out, Damned Spot'


The BF came up with the idea of shooting some photos at this self service car wash!  Thanks, babe for an awesome idea and for always being so willing to take my picture!  Ahem...just a little shout out to my dude...

This dress did all the color blocking work for me! When I first saw it last year, the orange drew me in even then (as many of you probably know by now, I've been obsessed with orange these days).  I was a bit skeptical about it because of the white and because I feared those mysterious yellow marks that show up on white...not sure if you ladies are also afflicted by this mystery?  But since it went on sale for pennies, I decided to go for it, and I'm proud to report that not one spot has yet surfaced!






And if, by chance, you are afflicted with these mysterious yellow stains, can you offer any advice as to how to get RID of them (since evidently, they are impervious to any sort of detergent!?  Many thanks :)
What I'm Wearing:
Dress:  BCBG
            Orig. Price: $279.00
            Paid: $59.00
Leather Jacket: Gap
Shoes:  Joan and David
Hat: Lord and Taylor

  35. what a fun photoshoot! and i love the dress, the orange against the white is great. I think you might try either pure lemon juice applied directly to the stain then leave outside awhile in the sun then wash, or try equal amounts baking soda, peroxide and water- apply with a bristle brush, let sit for at least 30-60 mins then wash. good luck :)

  54. that dress look amazing on you! and so does that lip color! chow!

    i put a scoop of oxyclean in every load and it really does wonders.... sometimes i put a scoop in the bathroom sink and soak my whites/lights for a couple hours before washing if they have some marks...

    hope that helps!
