Pretty or ugly? I say pretty.

I like this tee that I found on ebay.
Looking at it again...and again, I'm wondering if I actually kinda love it.
Ever since that amazing Margiela top- thing last year I've been wanting something with airbrushed horses. I know you fashion bloggers and trendy people are very into wolfes nowadays, but I think a horse is a good altenative. ;)
The thing is, my boyfriend really hates it. I mean REALLY hates it. Not that he is my fashion guru anyway but.. After me trying to be his personal stylist (with not much luck) for a long time now, even got him to buy a almost slim (no not really, just normal straight, but slim for him) jeans, light washed and even with holes in it, I kinda feel like I should listen to his veto. No?
I think it's a pretty tee. And judging by the airbrushed wolfes/horses/indians or whatever very American 80's- ish prints on tee's trend going on these days I wouldn't be the only one. Or maybe I'm just a cowboy waiting to come out, hehe..

I actually quite like it when he doesn't understand my taste in clothing though, I think it's kinda sweet when boys are a bit traditional and not that into fashion. Sometimes when I dress more creatively than usual he likes to tease me and call me "the crazy lady", and for me that's just confirmation. Haha:)


If any of you want to check out this tee or any of the others (they have some nice stuff, and some pretty funny stuff) check out this store, Gifts of the Northwest.

immense tee! he hasn't seen it on you tho right? maybe if you try it, and maybe DIY it to a more feminine shape then he'll be more amenable?

I think its pretty awesome. My bf isn't to crazy about funny/ironic/decadent imagery either. Although he denies it he's into traditional pretty.
I think that horse is well done. The airbrushing is what makes it. I say get it!!!

It's amazing, get it, get it!! But then again, as you saw with my wolf, I'm really into that kind of stuff! Plus I'm sure that my boyfriend secretely hates half of my outfits (even though he does have a similar tee-shirt with a moonlight horse on it ^^)! xoxo

En veldig spesiel t-skjorte. Men jeg liker den faktisk, veldig kunstnerisk :)

love it!!!

hmm on first sight i wasn't a huge fan but looking at it again i DO like it an awful lot. So much can be said for a simple graphic tee. Oh the layering possibilities!

and as for male cluelessness, it's just so endearing isn't it? i've been my best friend's personal stylist for a while and i have to say, he really looks much improved. i've worked wonders :-)

I like it...but only because I know you have great taste ; it just depends on who is wearing the tee and how creative this person is ...
I guess you just have to wear it, in full combination with your other clothes and when your friend sees it at that point, I think he WILL like it ...
I can understand he doesn't get the picture just looking at the tee itself ...

PS pictures please when you wear it !!
;-))

That does it, tee has now been ordered. If he complains, I will just show him these comments, hehe;) Good idea on making it more girly, I sure wil have to style it my own way. Pictures will come:)

Hilde Christina said...

Like Porcelain said...

Ha, definitly a good decision to order it! Your bf just needs some time, and then he'll sure like it!

Malin said...

I say pretty! Or amazing. Or beautiful. I'm really into horses now, as when I was younger. :)

I have to disagree with your boyfriend, it is a wicked tshirt, I love how this look is in right now xx
