    So I think I have decided to dye my slip. I really like the look of it and the surprise pop of color. Our colors are aqua and turquoise.

    But, I also want blue shoes. I don't want it to look tacky and over-kill the blue.

    So, should I just pick one, if so which one?

    Should I dye the slip aqua and shoes turquoise or just pick one color and stick with it?

    I guess I should have made a poll...

        It's really easy from what I've read.

        www.ritdye.com

        All of the specifics are on there. I can't remember if polyester dyes or not. There is also a custom color page that has "recipes" for colors other than the standard ones.

        I'll give it a go in the next few weeks (as soon as my slip comes in) and let you know what happens!

            What a cute idea! I think you could easily do both the slip and the shoes in the same color. So cute!

              I like the idea of dying the slip- so cute. Plus its a fresh idea compared to the pop of color from shoes!

                I saw that picture and gasped! If that isn't the snappiest thing I've ever seen, I don't know what is!!

                I LOVE IT! I say dye the slip and not the shoes.

                Love it, Love it, Love it!

                  OMG great idea! I've seen pics with slip that are colors and I was wondering if they ordered them in color or dyed them...now I know.

                  I wanted Aqua shoes but FI's mom and my mom almost flipped when I mentioned it......lets see if they let me dye my slip :) YAY!!!!

                  Oh, my vote would be dye the slip, not the shoes
