Stain prints on all-white


Was about to throw this tee away, but thought twice about it. It got stained because of the last flooding. Bleach failed to remove everything.

I am hoping the marks will still fade, and in the meantime, I will try to let this pass as a sort of print. (The fabric is so soft that it's a shame to just throw the tee away.)


I am wearing it today in another all-white outfit. Chose brown instead of black as accents.


The stains on the back are more interesting.


As in my previous all-white outfit, I have tucked in my tee at the back. But as you have seen, also at one of the sides — since the belt buckle is big enough.


The leather of the sandals I am wearing is also marked by stains.

I hope it stops raining for at least a month. Enough damage and ruined lives in the Philippines.

You can distress the shirt further to make the stains really part of the outfit. Toothbrush, screen, black, gold, or chocolate brown t shirt paint. If it doesn't work at least you tried :) Good score on the bag, where'd you thrift it?

Am thinking of dying the shirt with a different kind of pattern...Got the bag from a thrift store beside the Carriedo LRT station. But unfortunately, it has long burned down.
