Now that the weather is a bit warmer, I have abandoned by ankle length Patagonia puffer (attractive look, I know). I love wearing an edgy T-shirt underneath a blazer. I’ve actually gotten a couple of cute, casual striped blazers at Gap over the last year which have been a staple, along with a cream and navy stripe Tory Burch blazer from several years ago. (The Tory Burch Augusta Jacket, which is a similar idea but with much wider stripes, is on sale. Also, try Gap’s Classic Stripe Blazer and Knit Blazer in heather gray.) Perhaps I need to do a spring blazers for daytime post! In the meantime, let’s look at some at some digital photo graphic tees. Kate Moss and Audrey are my faves.
Here’s a compilation oflovely presents for a friend or sister, all under $25. A few are from online boutiques you may not have heard of, , sites that are worth exploring whether you’re buying for yourself or choosing holiday gifts.
ModCloth has really cute clothing at great prices (I just bought this adorable camera tee). Furbish Studio, a boutique in Raleigh owned by designer Jamie Meares, has fun home furnishings, as well as gifty gems. And, I just discovered including Waiting on Martha, an e-boutique and blog by Mandy Kellogg Rye, who plans to open a brick and mortar outpost in Atlanta next year.
So did you mix a tee shirt with a tailored jacket or sequined shirt like I asked you to in my graphic T-shirt street style poston Friday? Are you ready to step up to some edgier, sassier sayings? I think it’s easier to mix these simple graphic T-shirts with sayings on them than the ones with pictures, since these are relatively straightforward. Of course, if you’re self-conscious about people reading your chest, that’s a whole other issues. And, as the T-shirt says, “You’ve got more issues than Vogue.” Pick one, buy it, wear it.

There’s been a proliferation of fox fashions and furnishings over the last year, and the little orange guy is slowly moving into the mainstream. While West Elm and CB2 haven’t embraced the sly guy just yet (the owl is still the favored creature at most larger chains), Tory Burch plastered fox heads on flats, iPhone cases, and pouches, Jonathan Adler has a white one in his porcelain menagerie, and various foxy home accessories can be found at Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie. Here’s a mix of the best from big names, indie brands, and artisans.
I don’t have any bunny rabbits ’round my house, but they’re awfully cute. My friend bought the most adorable bunny for her daughter. Live! It snuggles and practically purrs. Who knew they could make such great house pets? Since Easter is coming up, I thought you might be interested in seeing where you can pick up some less intrusive, stylish bunny objets, for you, your kids, or a friend.
