giveaway alert!

as you know, i love all things free, so i am extra excited to announce my first giveaway. chickdowntown.com is a great online boutique that is offering one of you guys this amazing elizabeth & james deconstructed tee in grey. i (not so secretly) have a crush on mary-kate and ashley olsen and i am a big fan of their elizabeth & james line, which takes a feminine take on menswear. i love how this could look great casual with a pair of j brand jeans and you can later throw on a pair of heels and a blazer for a night out.

to enter, just leave a comment below and let me know how else you would pair this top to make it your own. please make sure to leave your email address in the comment, so i will be able to contact you. this is limited to us residents only (sorry rest of the world!) and will end july 17.

also make sure to check out their twitter and facebook page where you can be alerted of my giveaways.


  1. eek!!!!! i adore giveaways (the thrill of anticipation is enough, even if i never win :P)!! bc it's the summer, i'd love to loosely tuck it into high waisted shorts like this: http://stylelifephotos.blogspot.com/2009/07/summer-perfectness-in-eu.html

    and i am quite the fan of mary-kate and ashley myself...they're constant inspirations :D


  2. That T is amazing!
    I´d totally wear them with a pair of dark skinnies and some studded gladiator sandals.

  3. The tee is awesome! Would love to wear it with my dark cutoffs, simple leather sandals & lots of arm candy-a la Olsen twins.
    Love the site!

  4. I would pair the tee with a white & blue striped skirt and shiny black heels to slightly contrast the deconstructed tee. ;]


  5. oh i have an ongoing search for perfectly broken in gray tees & this one is amazing. I would wear it with my white jean shorts & brown faded cowboy boots. Kind of like this...
    love love love it!

  6. Love the twins! Love the Tee!! My vision of such an awesome Tee would be to dress it up with a drk grey/brown pencil mini and a little light brown belt around the waist. Top it off with some black gladiators or heels for the night and some gold jewlry for a pop!! I'd also definitely wear my hair up in a braided bun to show off the top :D and still look a little put together. I'm dreaming!!

  7. LOVE!!!! i would wear it with my vintage light blue high waisted shorts and beige wedges. cute cute cute!

  8. :D! I would probably wear this with my pink/grey/white/black striped cardigan, my skinny jeans and a pair of converse or jelly flats! :D

  9. I would wear it with black skinny jeans, oxblood boots, and lots of silver bangles

  15. i don't know why i haven't commented on this yet! i would wear it with baggy cut-off levis shorts and the perfect pair of black ballet flats. :)


  16. I am constantly searching for the perfect worn-in t-shirt, and I pretty much only wear white, black, and faded grey, with a small dose of bright purple, so this is a perfect addition for my wardrobe!

  17. looove!! i would promise to prance around in it everyday with super tight skinny jeans and tons of long black and gold necklaces!

  18. I would pair this with everything!!! It looks sooo cozy/perfect.

  19. Cool! My cousin lives in Boston, is that OK (I live in France...)
    So, I would pair it with : (not all at the same time!)
    - some destroyed white skinny jean's
    - a pair of leather skinny pants
    - a mini white jean's skirt
    - a black short tulip skirt (the teesh' tucked in, of course!)
