It's no surprise that t-shirts remain a staple in every fashion girls closet. They're comfortable, easy to wear, versatile and most of all, are unforgiving after a big meal.
Graphic/ concert tees have been my go-to item since I was 13 back when I rocking black hair, an under-cut, and horrible black chipped nails. Wait... that was 15. At 13 I was just straight up dressing like a boy. I guess my style hasn't changed too much since then but at least it's more refined now...
Well, graphic tees continue to have a big moment for fall and Gucci continues to kill it with their version but straight up, there's no way I'm spending $1500 on a t-shirt. It just makes NO sense.
Instead, I play the high/low game. High on accessories like shoes, bags and designer eyeglasses (because I never ever wear contacts), and low on a majority of my clothing, in particular t-shirts.
I had the chance to partner with Topshop this weekend and celebrated their newest store opening at The Bay in Oakville Place. I wore my new Rolling Stones tee, a pair of black flares, silver boots and sequinned utility jacket, all from Topshop. I was pretty confident I'd be the only one wearing this outfit so imagine my surprise when I walk in to see Liz Trinnear wearing a something similar, down to the exact same tee! Liz was DJ-ing for the day and it was great to catch up with her. Though I don't see her often, Liz is one of those women I admire. She always looks amazing when she's on air, but it's her off-duty style that I'm such a big fan of. I just loved that we were both wearing the same tee.
Finally, what's a Topshop event without a little bit of shopping? I picked up a couple of more shirts on the weekend, including this Pink Floyd tee with side lacing, and a Gucci-inspired tee that says Amour.
I just love the versatility of a good t-shirt. It's the ultimate all wear round piece of clothing. Since we're heading into fall, I also grabbed this amazing faux-shearling style jacket that has crazy-good Almost Famous vibes. It's not quite what Kate Hudson was wearing in the movie, but her character would have totally gone for it.
