While in my new favorite store on Thursday, trying on anything and everything with those plaid pants, the gal suggested a printed tank. This was the second suggestion to put a printed t-shirt with the pants, something I just wasn’t sure of. But when I put it on, well…. it looked AMAZING. I was so glad, though, that the shirt had a snag because I was not paying $48 for a sheer tank top, no matter how perfect it looked with those pants. That just is not happening.
So, as I do so well, I’ve been on an obsessive hunt for graphic tees since then. I did buy one on Thursday that I wore on Friday, and it, along with that stupid tank top, pretty much got me hooked. There isn’t a ton online that I LOVE, but I thought, “what about Etsy?” Let me tell you, Etsy has tons of options… GREAT options!
I found a store (Zen Threads) on Etsy that has so many prints I like, that I asked for a coupon code so I could order a bunch for the family. I found them while searching for “food truck shirts” a couple of weeks ago (I could write an entire post on my boys’ obsessions with food trucks) and immediately thought to check them first. I encourage anyone looking for a great, original print that you won’t see passing you on the street to check out their store! All graphics are their own original works, and they are awesome!
Another store on Etsy that I like (not love, like Zen Threads) is Mad Moon Clothing. I don’t have a favorite image just yet, but I favorite them because they have a lot of things up my alley.
Here are a few other little finds:
I have a charm on a necklace that says “She thought she could and so she did.” I love it – it’s sort of my motto. I got it after I worked so hard to get back in shape last fall and I wear it a lot. I started looking for a shirt last night that has this same saying, and I found two that I like on Etsy, of course.
There are a couple of graphic tees at regular online stores that I’m looking at as well, but I prefer to support those on Etsy if at all possible. One was a suggestion in the comments (thanks, No Baby Ruth!) and the other is the same brand (Elements) as the shirt I wore on Friday.
So that is what’s on my fashion mind right now. I haven’t bought a thing yet, so that’s good (and progress!). The California Redwoods shirt will be the first up, along with the food truck shirt. Priorities!
