So this is the first piece of clothing I ever made :) if I can call it that at least, I made the tee (bought the tee :p) and then printed a picture of Jolie on it, wrote “C’est Jolie… c’est mon chien” with it (meaning: This is Jolie, it’s my dog OR It’s beautiful, it’s my dog as her name means pretty in French, Jolly in English ^^) and made a bit of military inspired detailing on the left sleeve. I wanted a special occasion to wear this piece of clothing for the first time and that’s why I am entering the wardrobe remix contest of teenvogue magazine with this. Please keep in mind that I am an interior designer and a very clumsy person, so for a first piece I couldn’t reinvent the moon for you guys :) did try though :) No really I can’t sew, just stitch and because I am clumsy it’s difficult to play with the fabric too much, so I’ll save that for another time :)
It must be Jolie’s lucky 24 hours as she’s in my chicblog twice now :)
So tips on how the remix the simple oversized (XL) white t-shirt:
look n°1: RnB meets Safari: I combined the simple tee with Jolie on it with a cardigan with leopard print, a brown belt, some shorts, a hat and high heels. Ready to go dancing or go on a date with that cutie you like. The combination of the leopard print, Jolie’s natural spots and the heels provide this look a playfull character. The heels, shorts and hat make sure it this look has all key elements of sexyness, ellegance and classyness at the same time.
look n°2: casual secretary: when you want to wear something comfortable, loose, but elegant in the office, what’s a better option than the figure hugging skirt and simple loose fitted t-shirt combined with colourfull shoes and a big printed bag. Seriously I am in love with these simple looks and this bag is one of my favorites EVER. I’m so sad the zipper broke, however this gorgeous thing is what I’m taking to Paris with me :) love it too much + is huge :)
look n°3: casual sunday: I combined the tee with olive harem pants and a hat with leopard print. The loose pants combined with this oversized tee and the playfull hat make this look ideal for a sunday or any other day when man just wants to hang on the couch. These shoes however make sure you’d still look fancy enough to go out and have cocktails with the girls.
As you can see I kept it pretty simple, no scarf as dress, dress as skirt, skirt as top things for me today :) not that these aren’t great, really I’ve seen some amazing, unbelievebly great things like that already on chictopia :) but at the end of the day this tee just wants to be a tee… sometimes it’s important to see the things exacly how they are :)
Thank you again for your comments, wasn’t expecting that much on yesterdays post but you’ve proven me wrong, once again :)
“Parfois on regarde les choses telles qu’elles sont en se demandant pourquoi.
Parfois on les regarde telles qu’elles pourraient être en se disant “pourquoi pas”."
" Sometimes man looks at things as they are, wondering why. Sometimes man looks at them as they could be, by saying " why not ". "
Sorry if the translation isn’t exacly perfect, but it’s my interpretation :)
This was a part of the lyrics of the song that must be the song of the day :) Il y a by Vanessa Paradis the wive of Johnny Depp, so for those of you who haven’t heard her: you should, because he just has to have good taste in women AND their music;) If that hasn’t convinced you to listen :) this might: you should have seen Jolie when I was singing it to her two minutes ago :) getting al clingy ^^ that cutiepie
