Threadless this Week

threadlessahmumma.jpg

Well, the Shirt Snob can't lie. If we don't like something, we'll admit it. And this week at Threadless, we aren't very impressed. We really like one tee, That Way. But besides that, we don't care for their new tees. However, a favorite has been reprinted, Ah Munna Eat Choo. The Shirt Snob husband own it, and we haven't been bored with the design yet. But overall, it's a disappointing week after a great sale. But maybe they figure we've all just bought tees, and they are saving their best designs for the upcoming weeks as the holidays approach.

Love Birds Tee by Fred Flare

fredflarelovebirds.jpg

We really think this next one from Fred Flare is very cute. The Love Birds Tee is such a sweet design, and the colors of the birds contrast really well with the brown background we think. Love is in the air always, not just during February, so why not show it?

Blue Seersucker Tunic by Fred Flare

fredflareseersucker.jpg

Looking for something not too expensive? Fred Flare is a great place to consider. Today we'll look at two tops they are selling. First up is the Blue Seersucker Tunic. It has a collar, V-neck, orange contrast trim, puff sleeves, a tie at the low waist, and it hangs past the hips. We like the stripes and how they change direction on the bottom.

Mystery Grab Bag at Snorg

Snorg now has a Mystery Grab Bag available on their site for $5.95. Their inventory is full of misprints, discontinued designs, and shirts with a small hole or stain, so they are now getting rid of them for cheap prices. You send them your size, and you get a random shirt. They can't be returned or exchanged, but if you like a little mystery, this might be a good idea. The Shirt Snob was always a huge fan of the grab bags at our county fair as a child, so we think this is a fun idea.

Ferna Top by Diane von Furstenberg

dianeferna.jpg

Now that winter is on its way, we can pull out the velvet tops! Here's a beauty, the Ferna Top by Diane von Furstenberg. This semi-sheer shirt has a velvet yoke, a deep V-neck, ruching at the bust and shoulders, cap sleeves, and a tie at the back. We think it's a very flattering look for many body types, a great find for almost anyone!

Merino Deep V Neck Sweater by Stewart+Brown

stewartmerino.jpg

Recently, the Shirt Snob was on the lookout for a nice white top, and we must admit we had a hard time finding something that we really liked. We wish we'd known of the Merino Deep V Neck Sweater by Stewart+Brown. It has rib trim at the V-neck and empire waist, long sleeves, and very slight ruching at the bust. It's so elegant and simple, you could easily wear this to so many different events and for lots of different occassions. The sweater is available in ivory and black.

Accessory Friday-Space Mermaid

spacemermaidowl.jpg

The Shirt Snob just discovered Space Mermaid, a company that makes handcrafted jewelry. They have a new Autumn Collection, and as this is the Shirt Snob's favorite time of year, we can't help but love all their pieces, many of which have leaf designs and great colors. Some of our favorites include the Autumn Leaf Necklace, the Olive Brown Leaf Necklace, the Cranberry Icicle Earrings, and the Copper Bracelet. Space Mermaid also has a Vintage-Inspired Jewelry Collection, which some great pieces such as the Owl Necklace, the Bubble Earrings, and the Leaf Necklace. Each piece of jewelry is handmade to order, and they are happy to take requests for customized pieces.

Robinson's Top by LaROK

larokrobinsons.jpg

We think the Robinson's Top by LaROK would be great either on it's own or under a nice jacket and would go well with many bottoms. The jersey tank has ruching at the front, shoulders, and neck, a V-neck, and balloon bottom hem. It is available in two colors, carbon and shadow.

Greta Wrap Blouse by Ella Moss

ellagreta.jpg

If you like the previous shirt, you will probably also like this one. The Greta Wrap Blouse by Ella Moss has the same contrast banding that the Lila Blouse did. However, this one is a wrap, with a thin tie around the waist that can be tied wherever you'd like it. The banding goes around the all of the seams except at the flutter sleeves. It is available in black and tabasco.

Lila Colorblock Flutter Sleeve Top by Ella Moss

ellalila.jpg

How about an Ella Moss day? First, we found a fun one, the Lila Colorblock Flutter Sleeve Top. This blouse has a deep V-neck, contrast banding at the neck and around the empire waist, short flutter sleeves, and a very uneven bottom hem. It is available in rasberry and olive. A wrap dress version is also available in rasberry and olive as well as a skirt version in flame and olive.

New Tees and Sale at Miele Fresca

Miele Fresca has three new t-shirt designs available for the holidays. Our favorite is Poppy, but they are all cute. There's also a sale on the designs from the spring and summer, between 20-35% off!

Don't Go Cashmere Blend Cable-Knit Cardigan by Joie

joiedon'tgo.jpg

Want to stay warm while still looking great this winter? We think a great way to do that would be to wear the Don't Go Cashmere Blend Cable-Knit Cardigan by Joie. Made from a cashmere and wool blend, this sweater has a hood, four buttons at the front, a tie at the waist, banding at the bottom hem and arms, cables, patch pockets, and no sleeves. This would be a great way to still wear a cute long sleeved blouse you have even if it doesn't stand up to the cold winter months. Available in chalk and midnight.

Snorg Tees

snorgbearsjpg.jpg

We haven't written about Snorg Tees for a very long time, so we thought we'd bring them up again. We can't help but love their Red Stapler tee (Office Space is truly a classic movie in our book), and as we're also huge fans of The Colbert Report, we really like the tee #1 Threat to America Bears. But I'm Kind of a Big Deal is still our favorite tee of theirs.

Boudoir by Charlotte Tarantola

tarantolaboudoir.jpg

Although a little different than the normal tastes of the Shirt Snob, this cardigan is by Charlotte Tarantola is a stunning top. The Boudoir has a very complex and beautiful floral design against a black backdrop. There are ten buttons going down the front, a high and rounded neck, and long sleeves. With a simple bottom, this sweater could be a great look.

Crepe Pleated Cami by Stewart+Brown

stewartcrepe.gif

Here is a beautiful camisole that we think would look great either on it's own or underneath a cute cardigan or suit. The Crepe Pleated Cami by Stewart+Brown has a pleat down the front, banding at the V-neck, and spaghetti straps. It's simple, elegant, and a great piece that you could wear in a variety of situations and with many different bottoms. Available in two colors, black and muslin.

$10 Sale at Threadless for Two Days Only!

threadless1975.jpg

Quick! Get over to Threadless! They are having another $10 sale, but it's only through Wednesday of this week, and their tees are going fast. Get a start on your holiday shopping or just buy for yourself. Either way, you really should take advantage of this sale. There's tons of designs to choose from, including the new ones Nineteen Seventy Five, Waiting for Sleep, and Night Birds, and the reprint Nuts (which the Shirt Snob husband owns and loves). Just be careful of the Threadless Select tees, not all of them are on sale and the ones that are seem to be more expensive.

New at Punch Apparel

punchmexcellentf.gif

Punch Apparel has a new women's tee that we like. Maybe it's because we've eaten nothing but Mexican food all weekend long, but Mexcellent! just fits our mood right now. Plus, every fall the Shirt Snob has to restrain herself from buying up every brown (and orange) tee we see. Autumn colors are our favorites, especially this time of year.

Shop Bop has added more tops to their ongoing sale. Included are some we've told you about recently, such as the Arizona Top by Diane von Furstenberg, the Long Sleeve Henley by James Perse, the Courtney Kimono Wrap by Velvet, and the Rebel Bold Striped Top, Classic Bold Striped Tank, and Wrangler Bold Striped Tee all from C&C California.

V Neck Blouse by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent

twelfthvneck.jpg

The Shirt Snob seems to be fond of almost every top by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent. This next one is no exception. The V Neck Blouse is a 100% silk to with a deep crossover V-neck, cap sleeves, gathered banding and embroidery detail at the neck, and a rounded bottom hem. It hangs past the hips too, and is available in rust and silver.

The Shirt Snob recently discovered yet another t-shirt company. This one, Misswit Designs, is the original maker of the Stewart/Colbert '08 tees, which we've shown you at Busted Tees in the past. Besides that great one, they have some 80s influenced tees and the Dotsie collection, named after the designer's mother who influenced them. They also sell some other designs as well, such as the Flower Vine tee.

Halter Top by T Bags

tbaghaltertop.jpg

Considering how freezing cold it is up in the Northeast, the Shirt Snob can't imagine anyone actually wearing this next top, but we do realize that not everyone had to deal with the changing seasons. The Halter Top by T Bags is just perfect for warmer weather. It has ruching at the bust and back, banding at the empire waist, and a braided banding at the V-Neck. The bottom hem is unfinished, and there is also braided straps that tie behind the neck. It comes in a brown print and a mulit colored print.

Popcorn Sweater from By Francine

francinepopcorn.jpg

This sweater is just wonderful. As Girlshop says, it's "funky, but ladylike," and we couldn't agree more. The Popcorn Sweater from By Francine is a blend of merino wool, nylon, and angora, has six inches of lacy knit trim at the collar and bottom hem, long puffed sleeves, and a hook and eye closure behind the buttons in the front. It is so textured and intricate, we just love it! What a great way to keep yourself warm!

Nerdy Shirts

nerdyi-heart-nerds.gif

Although the Shirt Snob isn't the biggest nerd, the Shirt Snob husband is a bit of a geek, so we can appreciate many of the tees from Nerdy Shirts. They have a bunch of cute designs that we think would actually apply to a bunch of people, not just the nerdy, uber smart people out there. Almost all of their tees come in women's sizes, and they have a great feature to tell which they are. Just mouse over the design, and stick figure men and women appear to let you know if the shirt is available for which sex. Some of our favorites are The Last Supper, The Silverware Family, and Reading is for Awesome People, and a few we don't understand (Haduken???), but if you are a bit of a nerd at heart or wear your nerdiness on your sleeve, these tees are great.

Drew Scoop Neck with Tie by Ella Moss

mossdrew.jpg

This next top isn't super special, but we like it's simplicity. The Drew Scoop with Tie in silver by Ella Moss is great because it'd look good with a variety of different bottoms, like skinny jeans or leggings. It has a large scoop neck, sleeves that fall just beneath the elbows with elastic at the ends, a tie underneath the empire waist, and ruching at the waist. It's also long, falling below the hips. It's so loose and flowing, and it looks very comfortable! You may also like this blouse in navy or the Drew Mini Dress in black and navy.

Wild Garden

wildgardentwigs.jpg

The Shirt Snob has been lucky enough to discover a great t-shirt shop, Wild Garden. All of their goods are limited edition prints, with 100 or less of each being produced. Some of our favorites from this site include Aflutter, Twiggy, and Mobile. They have a few designs each in tank tops, short sleeve, and long sleeve varieties, and they also sell men's tees, children's tees, and scarves and bags. A portion of their profits also go to UNICEF, so consider supporting a great small business and children at the same time!

New at Threadless

threadlessblow.jpg

This week at Threadless, the Shirt Snob's all time favorite design (although one we aren't so sure we'd actually wear) is back. The Morning After is so funny, we just can't stop laughing. We were just saying on Monday how we wished it would be reprinted, and here it is! Another reprint that we like is Puppet Ballet, and the new tee Blow With the Wind is also nice.

New at Busted Tees

Busted Tees has a new tee out, Amish: Don't Drink or Drive. What can we say? It's true, it's funny, and we're really glad that we are able to do both. Just not at the same time.

Crooked Monkey

The Shirt Snob was lucky enough to get a free tee to review from Crooked Monkey. As you may remember, we recently discovered this company and wrote about them last month. They make college t-shirts, and as we do some work with collegiates and need to blend in as best we can, we were thrilled to get one of these tees.

crookedsmiley.jpg

We were sent the Smiley Face tee, which was one of our favorites. It's a cute and fun design, and the light yellow color of the tee will work well on almost anyone's coloring we think. It's soft too, the perfect shirt to throw on with a pair of jeans or to wear around the house (or dorm) with a cute pair of sweat pants.

The tee is also tagless as it says on the website. One important thing to note though, they do run small. And by small, we really mean it. The Shirt Snob has definitely gone up a size or two since giving birth (mostly due to the breastfeeding), but this tee is definitely fitted. This is definitely one shirt that we don't want to shrink in the dryer, but luckily it's already pre-shrunk for us!

Finally, we must point out an upcoming event that Crooked Monkey is holding. In early November, they are holding a party and fashion show at the University of Maryland, co-sponsored by Alpha Phi. Now, the Shirt Snob has mentioned being in a sorority once or twice, but to find this event associated with our sorority on this website was such a treat! And for all the other sorority women out there who read this blog, you might be able to hold a similar event too!

Besides women's tees, they also sell men's tees. So consider them for your boyfriends, husbands, fathers, etc. because these tees will quickly become favorites of anyone who wears them!

Bubble Blouse by Catherine Malandrino

malandrinobubble.jpg

You all know how much the Shirt Snob loves Catherine Malandrino. She has such great blouses that are beautiful and very wearable. Here is yet another great one from her, the Bubble Blouse. Made of 100% cotton with 100% silk accents, it has a scoop neck, a large removable belt, bubble hem, and short sleeves. The print is very interesting too, with great colors for fall.

Breast Cancer Tees from Cafe Press

cafepressbreastcancer.jpg

We're sure all of you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We hope to show you some great things you can buy which will also be helping this very important cause throughout the month. First up are tees from Cafe Press. As they say on their site:

CafePress.com will donate 40% of the retail price of all products sold through the Breast Cancer Donation Shop through October 31, 2006 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation or another non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with a core purpose of raising awareness and funding breast cancer research and education.

There are hundreds of great designs out there, so consider buying one and doing some good. Also remember that each design often comes on a huge variety of different styles, colors, and items, including pins, coffee mugs, bags, and much more.

The Tee Party

teepartyskulls.jpg

We recently discovered a new t-shirt site, The Tee Party. They sell both men's and women's shirts, and we really like them, so we thought we'd let you know about them too! Some of our favorites include She Hearts Skulls, Ladybug, Pieces of My Heart, and Sun Rays. We also love the rotating pictures at the side. They show real women wearing the tees, not just super skinny models, and that's refreshing as well as nice because it shows us how the shirts will look on the average person.

Red Cross Necklace

redcrossnecklace.jpg

Hello lovely readers! We've been meaning to do this FOREVER, but because life took over, we forgot. Remember when we reviewed all those tees from the Red Cross? Well, they also sent us a necklace. As the Shirt Snob only wears gold, we thought we'd give it away to our readers. Sign up for our newsletter if you aren't already, and you will be entered to win it. We will be closing this give away on October 28th, so make sure to sign up before then!

Accessory Friday-Halloween Hobos from The Sak

sakboo.jpg

The Shirt Snob is a huge fan of Halloween. We start decorating our house around Labor Day, drool over costumes for ourselves and our baby (can we buy more than one?), and we proudly wear the silliest socks imaginable with pictures of witches, cats, eyeball, and more throughout the month of October. We know it's a little weird, but we love the holiday that much. So imagine how we reacted when we discovered these purses from The Sak. All three are knit and are embellished with beads and sequins. They also have drawstring straps, a magnetic snap closure, are lined, have a zip pocket, and come with a coin purse. The three designs are Pumpkin, Scary, and Ghost. If you love Halloween as much as we do, you might want to consider these bags. They'd also be great for collecting candy if you're going along with some little ones!

Courtney Kimono Wrap Top by Velvet

velvetkimono.jpg

To finish up the week of kimonos, we've found another we really love, the Courtney Kimono Wrap Top by Velvet. There is a tie at the waist, unfinished edges at the bottom hem, 3/4 kimono sleeves, and banding at the V-neck, front and cuffs. It comes in three colors: rye, black, and shingle. You may also like the Blaine Kimono Sleeves Dress, also by Velvet.

Threadless This Week

threadlessbreaking.jpg

It's Threadless time again, and we aren't super thrilled with their new tees. Out of a bunch of new ones, we only like Breaking Up Is Hard To Do and Haikus are easy but... because it made us laugh. However, one of our all time favorites tees is reprinted, Cookie Loves Milk. It's also available in children's sizes, and we think it'd be perfect for a child!

Intricately Woven Kimono Top by Lauren Moffatt

moffattkimono.jpg

Here's a cute wool kimono sweater that will keep you warm this winter. The Intricately Woven Kimono Top by Lauren Moffatt is semi-sheer with satin banding at the arms and sides, 3/4 length kimono sleeves, and a tie at the waist. We're sure you have a bunch of shirts in your closet that would look great with this!

Sabrina Kimono Top by Ella Moss

ellakimono.jpg

Today's kimono blouse comes from one of our favorite designers, Ella Moss. The Sabrina Kimono Top has a V-neck, an empire waist with a tie in the back, ruching at the front, 3/4 length sleeves, and braided moleskin banding at the neck. We love the braiding, it really makes this top stand out and is very pretty. It comes in three colors: mink, vanilla, and black as well as in a dress version.

ExtraNifty Tees

extraniftyhoping.gif

A new t-shirt company, ExtraNifty Tees, just launched on October 1, and although they only have three shirts they're selling so far, we really like them. The artwork is great, and each is available in both men's and women's sizes. They are Hope It Helps, Ted Drew the Short Straw, and I Promised You the Moon. They are having a $12 tee launch sale, so if you like them, get over there and support this new company while the tees are still cheap!

Solid V Kimono Top by T-Bags

tbagskimono.jpg

For our next kimono blouse, we've found the Solid V Kimono Top by T-Bags. This simple jersey shirt has short sleeves, a deep V-neck, unfinished bottom hem, and ruching at the empire waist. We really like the color and think it would look nice with a variety of bottoms. Besides coco, it also comes in a print version as well as in a mini dress.

Kimono Sleeve Wrap Cardigan by LaROK

larokkimono.jpg

There aren't too many kimono sweaters out there, but we've found a great one. The Kimono Sleeve Wrap Cardigan by LaROK is a perfect way to take this great look well into the cooler months. It falls well past the hips, has short kimono sleeves, a thick tie at the waist, and metallic detail throughout. Comes in three colors: bone, peat, black and desert. Supposedly Mandy Moore's worn this wrap as well, so if you're interested in dressing like the stars, you might want to consider this.

Kimono Blouse by Alice and Trixie

alicekimono.jpg

We hope everyone had a good long weekend. We definitely did, but we're happy to be back finding the best shirts out there for you! We're going to make this week Kimono Week, showing you a bunch of great kimono tops we've recently discovered. We'll start off the week with the Kimono Blouse from Alice and Trixie. This silk blouse has a scoop neck, ruching at the empire waist, a tie in the back, and is slightly transparent but fully lined. The Shirt Snob got a peasant feeling when she first saw it, like it'd be great for a frolick in the fields. It's definitely romantic and beautiful and would be a fun one to wear. Also available in a black version.

We thought we'd have some fun with Accessory Friday this week, and so we're showing you a new discovery of ours-Angry Little Girl Totes!

There are a few: Get Your Own Tote, High Pain Threshold Tote, Fry Weenies Tote, Reversible F*@k Tote, Tired of B*tching Tote, War w/ Evil Tote, and the Hate Messanger Bag. If you are feeling angry, they are great bags to use.

Pullover by Paul & Joe

pauljoepullover.jpg

We just love this next top, it feels perfect for fall, especially with the color combinations. The Pullover by Paul & Joe is made of 100% cashmere, so you know it's warm and cozy. It has an orange and grey striped neckline that ties at the V-neck and hangs down the front. There is also pleated yoke below the bustline and short sleeves with a button on each. This sweater looks great with jeans or a skirt, we love how versatile it is!

New at Oddica

There are a few new tees at Oddica. We really like Inside. It's a take off of the movie Being John Malkovich, which is one of our favorites. Also keep this site in mind if you want something gory and artsy this Halloween season. They have tons of stuff like that, including their new Zombie Brain Chew tee, which we think is sort of gross.

Two Breast Cancer Tees from Primp

primpbreastcancer.jpg

As we're sure many of you are aware, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a cause near and dear to the Shirt Snob's heart as her mother-in-law succumbed to this terrible disease. We have found some t-shirts that are helping this cause. Shop Bop along with Primp will be donating 50% off their proceeds to the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. There are two different tees, the Breast Cancer Crew Tee and the Breast Cancer Thermal. They both have rhinestone detailing at the shoulders and bottom hem, the pink ribbon print, and are available in both cream and grey. Consider buying one and helping a great cause while you're at it!

Japan Inn by Anna Paul

We love kimono blouses and haven't shown our lovely readers one in a long time, so let's rectify that! The Japan Inn by Anna Paul is a beauty! It is made of 100% silk, has 3/4 length sleeves with lace trim, a deep V-neck with lace trim, and a tie just below the bust. The paisley print is just amazing, we love the colors so much.

Rosie's Shop

A quick note about the ad to our left, Rosie's Shop. 100% of the proceeds of everything they sell goes back to kids. As the website says:

Rosie's Shop exists to help fund worthwhile programs benefiting children. Every last penny of profit on each item sold, and every cent of your individual donation, helps some kid receive better early childhood care or education. And that's something we all benefit from.

We love Rosie O'Donnell (who has also totally made The View a show we can now stand to watch), and we love that she started this site and is helping children. The site sells clothing and accessories for both children and adults, as well as notecards, games, and more. So go check them out and support a wonderful cause!

Oversized Sweater from Development

We really like this next oversized sweater from Development. Made from a wool and cashmere blend, it has a wide rib collar, ribbing on the bottom, sleeves that hang past the wrist, keyhole with a button that can also be left open, and low side pockets. It comes in two colors, marble and black. If only they would say what it was called!

Serena Top by Susana Monaco

We really love this next top because you can wear it with so much. The Serena Top by Susana Monaco is the sexiest turtleneck in existance we think! It has a slight ruffle under the bust and on the sleeve, verticle ruching at the bust, horizontal ruching below the bust, and is very fitted throughout the body. It is available in green, black, rose, and caramel machiatto.

Cable Sweater by Project-E

projectecable.jpg

The Shirt Snob loves simple cardigan sweaters with buttons or zippers down the front. In times where you don't want to think too much about what you are wearing because you're in a rush, they are an easy way to look cute. Here's one we just found that we really like, the Cable Sweater by Project-E . This sweater has a hood, the signature XX's on the left bust, frayed edges, and six large buttons down the front. It is available in four colors: blue, grass, red, and sable.

Shadow Floral Tank by Mint

mintshadow.jpg

We certainly don't want to forget those of you who are still living in warm weather, so we found a cute tank that you may like. The Shadow Floral Tank by Mint is 100% silk. It has an elastic empire waist, a beautiful floral print, with solid navy blue silk at the straps and neck. This tank would also look nice under a cute sweater or jacket for those of you who live in areas where this wouldn't work right now due to the weather.

Top with Bow by Cacharel

cacharelbow.jpg

We don't know much about the designer Cacharel, so after writing the post below, we looked around a bit to see what else was out there. It didn't take long to find another top we love from them. This time it's the Top with Bow. Made of a silk and cotton blend, this top has six shell buttons going down the bust, a scoop neck, a bow at the empire waist, and 3/4 length sleeves. Plaid is always great for the fall, so we can't help but like this blouse!

Three Color Knit Cardy by Cacharel

cacharelthreecolor.jpg

This weekend was rather cool in the Northeast, so our minds are on sweaters right now The Three Color Knit Cardy by Cacharel is one that we really like. It is made of a wool and angora blend, so it's very warm. There are hidden snap buttons down the front, 3/4 length sleeves with banded ends, and thick verticle stripes of grey, brown, and yellow. We think this would be a great top to put on this fall over some of your favorite shirts.
