running color

timidfantasist  asked:

i feel ridiculous even asking this, but: somewhere between my last time wearing it and now, my favorite blouse has gotten fabric softener on it (which is stored in the bin above it with the lid sealed, but i recognize now it shouldn't have been anywhere near my clothes). it's now turned blue, and i don't know how to fix it, or even if it's fixable? it's yolanda's 'tipsy morning dolly blouse' if that helps, i couldn't find specific washing directions for it. please help me?

I would say to just hand wash it in a tub of warm water with a little gentle detergent. Since the spot is from fabric softener I imagine it’s designed not to stain so it should wash right out. Since the blouse is all white you don’t have to worry about any colors running like you would with something printed and it doesn’t really have a lot of details that could get hurt by being washed. You could probably even throw it in the washing machine in a lingerie bag on the delicate cycle without any problem, that’s how I wash most of my blouses.Then just hang it up to dry instead of putting it in the dryer.

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
