Tee’s Me Tuesday

For this week’s TMT, I thought I would dip into my collection and give you a glimpse into my wardrobe. Sorry about the horrible phone pic. When I have a stroke of genius without my camera girl around, I’m left to my own devices and I’m no professional! This is by far one of my favorite tees. I picked it up in the men’s section at Wasteland one fine day. So soft, so light, and my favorite Star Wars film to boot! I like pairing this with a faux leather mini skirt, tights, black booties and a denim jacket for a little androgyny!

20131202-180601.jpgA couple tips for your tees: first of all, I never hang my t-shirts. Hangers are a knits greatest enemy next to moths and a loose nails. Fold ’em up and put them in your dresser! Second, do as I say and not as I do! Get the wrinkles out before taking blog pictures. Steaming is my preferred method to de-wrinkle. In a pinch you can use a hair dryer to get the wrinkles out of your garments! A little trick I picked up when I was still in school. Hold the dryer on high underneath on a central area of the garment for a few seconds and watch those wrinkles disappear before your very eyes!

Peepin’ the Street: Re-Styled!

One of my favorite looks from PFW can’t be found on the runway, but it’s quite a collection! These happy girls, first featured in this post, made me feel giddy as a school girl! I’ve been scouring the thrift shops for short, puff-sleeve button ups ever since. Can you blame me? They’re super sweet and youthful look embodies everything I find so enchanting about fashion.

You better take notes! There might be a pop quiz! Try to cop this look with a pleated navy skirt, an oversized tie (use a long scarf and tie it like a men’s tie. If you don’t know how, enlist your closest fella to show you!), and an adorable blouse (this is a men’s blouse, but the smallest size should fit. This also gives you a chance to whip out the sewing machine!). Don’t forget the paper boy cap!
