As someone who has always had a very strong stance about slogan t-shirts, it’s a pretty bitter pill to swallow that I’m now posting a visual retraction in the form of this outfit post. A couple of months ago I wrote about how weird the t-shirts in Zara are, because let’s face it, they are – the evidence is overwhelming.
However, what’s a girl to do when she wanders into her local Zara looking for some embroidered shirts and winter boots, and suddenly she stumbles across a t-shirt with a quote that references one of her all-time favourite songs? Obviously the answer is: abandon her principles and buy the bloody t-shirt.
I found this little cropped tee in Zara and it instantly brought to mind the LCD Soundsystem song New York I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down. It’s one of my most beloved songs, and I felt I couldn’t really not have this little piece of it close to me. Despite the fact that it is cropped, tiny even in the largest size and has an inconceivably small head hole – if that’s even the right term. So here I am now, going back on everything I said about t-shirts with writing on them, flaunting my own fashion hypocrisy like a proud blogger.
