I need to save my dress or else I need a new outfit. I had this dress that I bought previously and kept it for when I have any occasion to attend or if not, I’ll wear it for Chinese New Year. It’s absolutely new.
I was preparing for my emcee session for Exabytes’ Malaysia Website Award 2017 on 27 January 2018 in Selangor. So, I took this dress out to be washed. With my current skin condition (which has now healed a lot and skin allergies reduced), I need to soak the clothes and wash before I wear them. It’s crucial for new clothes to be tested and cleaned prior to wearing. Some clothing brands/companies are amazing because their clothes’ colours don’t run and there is no chemical/dye smell on them. Some are just disappointing.
This new dress was probably soaked too long and it didn’t react well to the detergent because the colour on the faux golden crystal strand that’s sewn to the dress came off and stained the dress.
You can see a bit of the stains in the picture here though it can’t be seen clearly with the picture lighting. It’s more apparent in real life.
Here’s a closer view of the stains on one of the areas of the dress.
So shiny. I look at the picture my eyes also “bling-bling”. *Shine bright like a diamond…*
I searched for how to remove stains on clothes and vinegar with lemon is supposedly able to remove the stains. I’ll need to give it a try. I’m a tiny bit upset because I like how this dress has long sleeves and it’s blue, which is my favourite colour. They were the reasons why I bought the dress but now it’s ruined when it’s brand new and I didn’t even wear it yet.
I used to shop a lot and buy new clothes for any events that I’ll be attending. Then need the shoes to match and sometimes the handbag needs to match too (that meant more shopping). Nowadays ever since I run my own business, I stopped shopping unnecessarily. I usually wear new clothes for my emcee sessions and as for events, since I attend quite a number of events and organise events as well now, I don’t usually get a new set of clothings just for that. There’s always the beauty of sponsors as well. Ah well, so much for wearing clothes that I bought for my emcee session. I’ll probably need to go shopping or it seems like I have to reach out to sponsors now.
