house of holland, please turn into a box of holland so i can afford you.

Alright, I've always had an infatuation with slogan t-shirts, and my love has only escalated for them when I first saw a House of Holland t-shirt on a kid on cobrasnake's picture site. I am by no means a party animal (at least, decent parties... @_@ alas, i am but a mere sophomore and an asian one at that. the stereotypes, the horror......) but when I see those pictures coupled with a Holland t'shirt I'm pretty much set to dance to whatever is on the radio.

Enlarge that for a nice bit on the designer and the international it-girl, Agyness Deyn. I love that girl, I kind of miss her blonde hair but she rocks the dark locks just as much.

The House of Holland t-shirt craze is kind of old news (they've been hot for the past two seasons, even Teen Vogue has them in their alphabet summarizing what's been hot for 2007) but I am so in love with the line I couldn't really resist. This post has been in my head since I even started the blog..... Abigail'll vouch for that, she was very close to throwing me out the window in our Computer Class every other week when I fawned over the site. ("ABIGAIL COME HERE LOOK AT THAT PRO SHIRT MAN")

My favorite shirt my far is the giles deacon fashion groupie shirt. coming a close second is the heidi slimane tshirt.

I wish the euro wasn't owning the american dollar's ass, I really truly do. It's roughly $90 dollars for either of this shirts, which is far more than I have ever paid for a shirt in my life. I have half a mind to just DIY the whole thing, but then the magic is kind of lost--I want to feel like Aggy.

My god, my voice probably went up an octave there.

Meh, even though the shirts are out of my price range right now, I will get one in the future--just not in the immediate one.

Does it seem foolish to spend so much on a shirt? How much have you spent on a shirt, what made you decide to splurge on it?

A few more of my favorite shirts (again, UK brands.... curse you, exchange rate scum!) are from youreyelie. They cost less, ranging from $40 US and up, so maybe I'll get these sooner than I think. Still, if I can find something a vintage store that costs less but reminds me of them I'm going to pick it up with no regrets.

In no particular order, my favorites on the site:

1) Kings Head by youreyeslie clothing brand; $40 US
2) Keef by DESTROY POP; $35 US

the third one is DRUGS SAVED MY LIFE. Ha. Do you see a pattern in the shirts I like? Keep in mind these are just my top faves, I didn't feel the need to list the whole site..... I would buy all the shirts in a heartbeat, though.

Moving on.

Some necklaces I've been eyeing:

1) Sunglasses necklaces by Mafia, $40 and limited stock
2) I Love You Envelope locket with letter; $17 dollars at etsy. Her entire shop is amazing, I strongly reccommend you check out the other necklaces she has there. I am in love. This necklace is a perfect gift for V-Day coming up as well.
3) Petite Salope necklaces by Locher's, $65 US. The entire site is almost sold out, a sale is going on and you better go now before this years style's are gone. Notorious for the naughty saying on ladylike shirts, this necklace is no different. Ah, a little slut on a necklace never looked so damn cute.

People are bugging me to post, so I'll just save what I'm about to say for later dates. See you tommorow!

thanks for the comments guys. =]Yeah, I love slogan tshirts but I guess I'm a bit picky--the FRANKIE SAYS RELAX one making it's rounds in the chain stores like f21 just don't do it for me. I want a Holland, not a cheap knockoff.

Great jewelry. I'm not much a t-shirt girl so I wouldn't spend much on them, however the slogans are rather witty.
