Mary-Go-Round

It's been forever since I wanted to own a Mary Katrantzou printed piece, and I was this close *index finger the thump tips almost touching* to getting the SS12 RTW tri-tone floral blazer, but like many women's outerwear, the arm holes tend to be snug on me so it was a no no. Fortunately, Katrantzou presented some tees this season which is basically the most wearable thing at the moment from her collections for me since her separates are a tee bit too feminine for me to pull off (bowl skirts, chiffon tank tops, sleeveless dresses, etc.) So, I went for the Carousel print tee. Also, far be it from me to not be supporting my CSM alumni right? (Is that even a legitimate excuse? Probably.) Not to be name-dropping or anything but a tweet-back from Mary Katrantzou herself earlier this Summer left me just a tiny bit star struck further nudging me to want her stuff even more. This t-shirt, though possess quite a feminine print, when worn by a guy surprisingly didn't create an awkward tension. I don't think I've ever owned a tee with such an adorable print that now I feel all marshmallow-y on the inside that I felt only a pair of casual high-waisted vintage leather shorts could mitigate the sweetness of the look. 

P.S. I went through a serious debate on what the title of this post should be, there were too many options: Mary-Go-Round, Mary Carousel; Mary Had a Little Horse; Mary Me, Katrantzou, etc.

  27. I love this Tshirt, I can wear it too. When you get tired of it, i'd like to have it pleazzzz. So gentle and sweet looking. Great combo, you are right, need that stronger pants or shorts to balance it out. You are great with combining garments! Great look!

  30. Such a great print. But how could a bowl skirt be too feminine?! Nothing is...

    1. I use the word "feminine" loosely because I only apply that word for people who still label their item of clothes as menswear or womenswear, but I just feel I don't have the legs or teeny waist to rock a Katrantzou bowl skirt (at the moment) lol
