Have You Ever Ruined Clothes in the Name of Beauty?

According to a recent Bella poll, consensus was that it does indeed take some suffering to be beautiful. But sometimes, inanimate objects, like our clothes, are the things that actually suffer in our quest for beauty.

Has an errant lipstick rendered your new white pants unwearable? Or perhaps it was a color mishap at the salon that had you heading for the Spray 'n Wash (only later to be met with the rag pile)? All I can say is, so long bright and sunny yellow t-shirt. It's regrettable you had to meet face to face with that drippy hair dye.

First of all, I usually don't get dressed until AFTER I do my make up but of course recently I was wearing a brand new (we're talking just cut the tags off) winter white tank top. When I looked in the mirror, I realized that somehowwww teeny drops of black liquid eyeliner stained the middle of my tank. Was SO mad. Tried everything. Warm water, detergent, w/bleach, Shout, etc... they faded but didn't come off. Thank God it's still wearable tho.

I once knocked over a bottle of pink nail polish - it landed straight on my favourite pair of black liquid leggings XD . The funny thing is that I couldn't get home and change them, so I kept them on - with the pink drops all over the right leg ...Someone asked me where I bought them!

I still have a t-shirt I wore while dyeing my hair dark red, the stains are splotched just enough that it looks like blood. Freaked my boyfriend out the first time he saw me wearing it, heh.

hair color, but that's to be expected (I go black.) The most annoying thing though, Proactiv lotion (or any other benzoyl peroxide treatment). It dyes the collars of shirts/towels/robes, ugh! And, a sharpie exploded in my apron at my old job right onto my favorite slouchy tragic.

Ugh, you jinxed me. I just needed to touch up my foundation. Now I have to change my pants.

Several old tank tops with hair dye, and jeans with nail polish and polish remover. I´m very clumsy, I can´t help it.

I have learned that liquid foundation is impossible to get out from jeans.

Thousand times!Especially with nail polish, seriously, I don't know how many pants (many of them of the pyjamas, but still...)I have ruined while painting them, or spilling nail-polish remover over some clothes. Also with make up that I never can wash. Or I ruin my day outfit with make up or moisturizer...

not that I can think of, but my bathroom rug has hair dye on it.
