Sometimes you find something so very amusing that you have to get it and make it part of your life – and that’s what happened with this t-shirt. I saw it somewhere and turned to Ebay immediately to get my own and was lucky enough to find it! The irony of it cannot be lost on a blogger, right?
Being a blogger has this problem, our lives seems a lot more interesting on the internet – because we only (or mostly) blog about the exciting things we’re doing, it might give the impression that one’s life is a lot more interesting than it really is… All the events, dining out and all those things are just a mere small percentage of our lives. I won’t certainly be blogging about that time we went shopping for toilet roll or that other Sunday that I just stayed home in my onesie moping around and feeling sorry for myself for this or that reason… Glamourous, no? Of course not, and that’s why it doesn’t really make it to these pages.
My point is, I think that I don’t do a lot more than other people would, I just choose to share a bit of it on here and enjoy reading everyone else’s life snippets as well. I am not privileged in any way and if sometimes I get nice things, it’s because I have dedicated a lot of time working on the blog, so people see value in being featured in it because of that. (You can read more about how much time and effort it takes to keep a blog updated here). It’s a lot of fun but it’s also a bit of work and not just mine: in this blog post I have collaborated with Graham from Black Tea Photography, to bring you some nice pictures. Hopefully there will be more nice outfit photos in the future, as they’ve been a bit rare recently.
Anyway, this is what I wore with my amazing ironic t-shirt from Ebay:
Hat – Vintage, not exactly sure of the ear but I’d bet 30’s or so, got it from A Outra Face da Lua; Leaopard Coat – Zara; Pink Tulle Skirt – Olsenboye (the Olsen sister’s brand, bought in one of my trips to the US); Shoes – Office (via Ebay); Bag – Acahcum Muchacha; Stupid posing – Model’s own.

such a cute tshirt, and lovely skirt and coat too! mwahaha fabulous funny tshirt!
I actually blog about my shitty days as well as my good ones, and looove reading about that less glam part of people’s lives – I have a thing with those blogs where weverything is always peachy perfect and happy and sunshiny days. As life is made both of the good and the bad, I enjoy reading about what others feel and how they deal with it – as a writer I find that it does give me a bigger range of emotions on which to base my characters on.
Bahahhahaha that tee is HILARIOUS! I’ve seen the ‘I’m better looking on Myspace’ ones but who uses Myspace anymore?! Now THIS tee is something we bloggers can relate to. Although funnily enough I’d really like to read ‘boring’ everyday blog posts like shopping for toilet paper, paying taxes…I guess I’m overstimulated by shiny, glossy blog posts and want to get back to basics! Miss youuuu xx

I know what you mean – sometimes blogs just look too fake and there isn’t anything wrong with showing a little bit of the duller aspects – I just wouldn’t do it all the time!
I miss seeing your creative outfits, so glad to hear that there are more photos of YOU in the future – I’m looking forward to them! I understand the ironic statement, but I have to say I don’t really agree with it. I think what we show online is such a tiny part of our personalities, and in real life we are so much more complex, alive and interesting. 🙂 Though it does not make such a cute statement on a shirt, does it? 😉 xx
Thank you! I miss posting outfits more often but it’s hard when you don’t have anyone to consistently take decent photos.
I know what you mean! I don’t think people would be particularly interested in me blogging about the chats I have with my cat at 2am, so I don’t usually post about that too much!
Anyway! Lovely outfit and lovely post!
i love this so much and agree with it! i need that shirt ahah 😀
