You always have the best photos! I can't seem to stop staring at the jumbled keys & I love the cheekiness of the "Rich & Skinny" tote, though I wouldn't have the guts to ever put it on :)

Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments. I've got a soft spot for preppy too - must be all those classic RL ads :)

Stephanie Clayton said...

now how neat is this?! i barely notice the actual words because it's all so interesting and graphic.
the use of words and lettering is becoming quite a trend, not just in fashion, but also in art and design.
great post!

l love wearing words, especially for tee, but i don't really like it if it's too much..

keep it simple, and keep the meaning more :D
one of my fave 'wordy' pieces are the 'i'm not a plastic bag' bags by anya hindmarch

Sasi said...

I admit I usually don't love this trend, but the bags and all the jewelry are pretty cool.

Anika said...

CC, I adore all of your picks. I find that I always gravitate towards high fashion "wordy" items...maybe because I'm a nerd at heart? ;)

I missed the Designer boutique (either at work or sleeping) but I hope it went well...you're a star gorgeous.

Hope you have a fabulous day!

yiqin; said...

Kristin said...

What I wouldn't do for that Chanel Clutch!

Jennifer said...

I need those Kate Spade flip flops. Right now. Soooo adorable and summery. :)

I usually don't like clothes people have to read, especially t-shirts, but these are some chic fun takes on that! I like the rings.

rossovelvet said...

Nice idea !!
I'll do some gossip girl-esque t-shirts and sell them on etsy soon !
