There is nothing I love more than pop culture references and witty phrases on my shirts, it really is a guilty pleasure and because of that I am not going to justify the purchases of these pieces by talking about something as obscure as "breathable cotton." These pieces of clothing are a few of my favorite things I have bought and since I like to categories and classify things, another "fun fact," this is my "bad a**" attire section of my closet. So without further ado here is a look into my closet.
With this first piece as you can tell by the title is my Ballin' shirt and I can't exactly confirm who the original designer is because I see it on the ALEX & CHLOE website but I got my shirt in LA from Kittson and the tag says Brian Lichtenburg so take your pick. Regardless it is a fantastic shirt and both websites have many other versions like Homiés South Central, Féline Meow, etc. All of these shirts are play on words to the brand names of famous designers. The Homiés South Central shirt is a reference to Hermés Paris, Féline Meow to Céline Paris, and Ballin' Paris to Balmain Paris.
Anyways, I bought the Ballin' Paris shirt in white and I absolutely love it, the fabric and all; I know I wanted to avoid the topic but it really is just so soft. I do wish I had bought the shirt in black though because I am so accident-prone but regardless, I could not be happier with the purchase.
I should mention that the fit of the shirt is also very loose and not nearly as tight fitting as it looks in this picture up top but it is still a golden purchase. They also have a couple different styles to the shirt; you can get the muscle tee version, this razorback one, or a regular t-shirt cut. I am a big fan of black and white together but technically I don't see why you couldn't wear it with a red skirt but if you do that I would avoid adding another. This is how I styled my shirt.
I kept all the colors really neutral, and of course black and white. My jacket was a vintage silver jacket, my short were faux leather shorts I got from Urban Outfitters and my flats where gold and from a brand called Report.
My second purchase from Dimepiece was their "Starry Eyed Miss. Moss" shirt. I bought the shirt because Kate Moss is such a queen in the modeling world and I love her work therefore, it made sense, simple logic.
It is worth mentioning the shirt doesn't come with the mesh underneath but that would be a solid addition to it. When I got around to purchasing the shirt it was "winter time" in Florida, I use that term lightly because winter in Florida is like in the 60s but still cold for us. However, the shirt was perfect for me to wear in college because it could easily pair it with leggings and it was an oversized shirt, unisex again, so it was perfect class attire because it has such a cool air to it yet it looks effortless. Plus the addition of my black Zara leather jacket added to the level of badass I was feeling in the morning and kept me warm during wintertime in Florida.
You always have to end with a BIG bang and nothing says, "BANG" quite like a Biggie Smalls hat. I just purchased the order so it is still mid shipping but I am so excited to get the hat and wear! Biggie Smalls is my favorite rapper so I have to represent the east coast! I imagine this hat can be wore with whatever but I don't see myself pairing it with any of the shirts above because I think the two would be competing for attention.
The only complaint I have about the hat is that I don't like the mesh fabric in the back of the hat I wish it was cloth all around but besides that I love how simple it is. For those of you who are Tupac fans, no worries Urban carries a Tupac version also.
