this is quite possibly the scariest thing i have ever attempted. forget skydiving, swimming with sharks or bungee jumping, writing a blog terrifies me most. which poses the question – why am i doing this? i’m not too sure if i know the answer to that myself, but it comes down to the fact that i love fashion. wearing clothes, designing clothes, making clothes, reading about clothes, buying clothes; trust me if there was an olympic event for clothing enthusiasm, it would be mine. so this blog is going to be where i share everything that inspires me with you!

ah the statement tee. since the dawn of time (and printers), people have chosen to display their feelings on their cleverly worded tees instead of making a statement, thus statement tees were born. arguably the most prestigious t-shirt wearing historical figure would have to be chad
whilst they have changed and become more (or in some cases less) sophisticated; statement tees have squeezed their way from school-kid wardrobes to shiny fashion blogger closets.
dior is the biggest culprit as of today. their ‘we should all be feminists’ t-shirt (which was designed by rihanna) has been seen on just about every show-goer this season. in the SS17 collection, models sport many different printed tees delicately tucked into sheer, hand-embroidered skirts, accessorised with j’adore bags (dior loooves a good logo).
you can shop the ‘feminist’ tee ($710) and the ‘dio(r)evolution’ tee ($700) in dior boutiques.
chanel resort 17 collection also debuted a colourfully printed ‘coco cuba’ tee and who can forget the heavily instagrammed gucci logo tee.
you can shop the chanel tee ($1150) here and the gucci tee ($370) here
but if you are not in the mood to spend your life savings on a t-shirt, less blindingly expensive options are ganni ‘cherry bomb’ tee ($135), topshop ‘1972 slogan tee’ ($30) or urban outfitters ‘busch racing tee’ ($39).
so get shopping!
