The boyfriend tee









Shorts: Don't ask Amanda via General pants, Bag: Indonesia, Boots: Nine west, Tank: Cut up the boy's tee, Cardigan: Vintage Pringle


I had my eye on this tee for months before the boy accidentally dropped some bleach on it and made a few holes doing God knows what. To my utter glee he didn't want to wear it too much anymore but I still had to wait longer to have it in my paws and then snip snip and I have one of the comfiest tanks :D

I cannot understand how a little character to clothing is not seen as a good thing by everybody, maybe because I value comfort and well ventilated clothing over everything else. But on a serious note I just don't understand the lure of fast/ cheap fashion that to me has no character, no history, is just blah. This tee shirt for example was bought before a holiday to the south of France, Spain and Amsterdam and then travelled all the way to Sydney via Abu Dhabi and now I wear it all the time and probably will take it on trips with me. BEAT THAT MASS PRODUCED, BACK STORY LESS, SWEATSHOP PRODUCTS!

Okay I don't want this to end up becoming a rant about dodgy labour practices but I'd be a happier person if everyone I know would buy more and more from thrift stores and op shops. And now on to the beauty from Kuta, Indonesia, isn't she super pretty? She is waiting to meet her new Momma aka my sister whose jewellery collection I am waiting to raid. Hence all the bribery. Have a great week everyone!

i have a couple of tees which i wear so often..i once bought this really loose kurta top for only rs.50..i wore it out of shape in a few years and still wouldn't give up to the utter dismay of everyone..they didn't see what i liked so much in that!
love that you kept this tee..

your latest blog made me add a new item to my ever growing list of - can't do withouts, its a set of pattern punches to create my own design on a leather bag. I love the bag and I really think it's a show stopper.

Feeling all your comments! I love thrifted tees, accessories and outfits. And the back story behind every piece of clothing I own and love is definitely better than most designer pricetags.
