It's a challenge to catch me wearing something that is not black and loose, so considering this, I think I owe more than many thanks to Lyz + Josh - the awesome designers behind OBESITY + SPEED!!! They are definitely the ones that were behind (my) Christmas coming early last year, sending some amazing shit my way - all the way to Australia too! This makes it extra special!
If we're going to be honest, I've actually struggled to keep all the pieces in my possession - boyfriend has already claimed the zebra number (hopefully temporarily!) ...agrees that it is quite possibly the best cut neckline EVER. Anyway, I'm anal as anything when it comes to a good tee - I take note on everything from the perfect thinness of the fabric, to the actual cut (needs to be loose without making you look frumpy!) ...I know most people wouldn't think there was much science in a tee shirt, BUT THERE IS!!! I probably seem nuts, but I wear big tee shirts so much that I can't help but notice this shit. It's like the ones you wear for so long, and then finally the colour fades, the stitches un-ravel and the fabric becomes so thin that it starts to ladder - you know those ones? They are tee shirt perfection. (sorry it's 3.30 in the morning, why do I always blog at ridiculous times of the night?) Anyway, point is, if Lyz and Josh can make a new shirt be as flattering as one of your old favorites, then CLEARLY they know what they're doing!!!

PS: Anyone living in Melbourne knows how ridiculously, FUCKING HOT the weather has been lately... lucky for me, I took advantage of Cami hanging out at my house and asked her to take these photos for me (which in themselves, I think are SWEET). Lucky I did, cause it allowed me to take a break from my usual 'set the camera on timer and run' style of outfit documentation that I'm so use to. Also meant that I could hang out in a bath tub with soaking wet clothes and hair, conveniently allowing me to 'kill two birds with one stone' - so to speak, and fit in a fun blog-o-shoot, while simultaneously keeping cool!!! YES.
