Take 10 | The Wildfox Tee

Psynopsis Wildfox T-Shirt Self-Knitted Wristbands

Now, if I said: 'A t-shirt is a t-shirt is a t-shirt is a t-shirt…' you'd immediately know about my ignorance in that sector. But even ignorant me knows that apart from thickness, material, design, cut etc. etc. choosing your tee is like choosing an identity, and the Wildfox people are putting a lot of thought into what makes the perfect worn-for-ages, stolen-from-the-boyfriend, nicked-from-the-rockband looking t-shirt.

Being a bit into numbers these days, having figured out that after 1 year of blogging the sum of comments and profile views divided by the sum of followers and numbers of posts equals my grandma's age (okay, now I'm totally bullshitting) I give the Wildfox tee a 10 (out of 10) for wearability and adaptability (dress-up-ability; I couldn't stop piling on the accessoires), a 10 for cosiness and a 6 for material (50% cotton, 50% polyester – personally prefering 100% cotton). And I'm so not surprised that there is already a list of people who asked me if they can get it as a Christmas present…

It's been a coming and going on the Take 10 team lately… Welcome to our new girls Ellie from Pretty Much Penniless, Paula of Pinkbow and Jazmine from Jazzabelle’s Diary (who already took part in the last challenge, but Hello again!). The 'old pros' Vicki, Sarah, Adele, MJ, Jen and Sherin also had much fun styling 'le tee'.

I'm loving the chopped up cardi, the skinny jeans and boots combo! Definitely a way that I'm going to wear this tee in the future :) x

Kazuko said...

absolutely love how you styled the T with the cardi turned vest and the wristbands. very cool! hope you're not only wearing it for the blog pics!

P.S. Oh, and did I actually already congratulate you on your blog's first anniversary? hm, I think I did. Just in case: your blog is on my daily blogroll, I guess it's a hard piece of work to keep it up, but the number of readers shows it's really worth it! looking forward to every new post! tnx for sharing!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Thank you, Kazuko! It's work and fun, isn't it? And no, that's something I would pretty much wear any day (little less jewellery, maybe).

I love what you did to it! You made a tee so chic and totally appropriate for cold weather. I so want to be a part of this project because of you and your awesome marketing/styling skills.

You know you look amazeballs in this outfit sabine! I hate this term but hold on to you seat I'm gonna use it....very urban warrior!
Fantastic styling
And an incredible job on the collage too ;)

Jazzabelle said...

okay, let's hope my comment saves this time ;)

i adore what you are wearing sabine, how you have kept the colours simple in grey and black, the tee looks so great with your skinny jeans and boots! oh, and my mum said that she likes your styling the best!

Madame G said...

Love it! That's exactly the way I'd wear that tshirt. I've been pondering over whether or not to splurge on a Wildfox tshirt for ages, so it's great to read your review.

Loving the rest of your blog too x

Maddy said...

I could definitely use a funky tee like this for my wardrobe! I can totally see this worn with a blazer for a more "pulled together" look or with ripped jeans for a more "grungy" look! Love how you paired it with a sweater vest! It's a nice touch!

Vicki said...

looking fierce! :) x

MyStyle said...

Purdey Singleton said...

i think you rock this look very very well! and the collage is just amazing!

Sherin said...

It was a fun one to style. I love the edgyness of how you wore it. The boots are perfect.

Hannah said...

Love this look, probably one of my favourites of this month's challenge. I just love a good rock n roll look and with all those cosy winter accessories I'm in love!!

Hannah xx

Isabel said...

you did a great job styling it!

MJ said...

You look great - all cosy and woolly!

Veshoevius said...

Your take on the tee rocks! Very rockstar off duty I think! I love how you've styled it, the woolly gilet and arm warmers (though part of me is telling you to get a coat you must be freezing) and the chunky chains in the last pick - is that a necklace?

Veshoevius said...

actually on closer examination they look more like black pearls? (what I thought were chunky chains)

drollgirl said...

i love your outfit! it is KICK ASS, and that is a good thing!

and i also love californication. i am glad he isn't my boyfriend/lover, but he is HIGHLY ENTERTAINING! love that show!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, HOT STUFF! :)

Very cool, I like how you--and everyone else--styled it. I'm loving your arm warmers and those great boots...like the commenter above me said, very grunge-chic!

Cloud of Secrets said...

I love how you look so awesome and a bit dangerous whilst wearing an assortment of soft cozy knits. You and Paula are on my select "must read" blogroll, so it'll be fun for me to see how you two style the Take 10 items.

heart charlie said...

I love all the shades of grey and that tee is awesome!

Cindy Whitehead said...

This is one of my fav looks on you - Wildfox is the bomb! A Merry Christmas and happy Holiday to you Sabine!! xc

E said...

Such a great look! I love the knit pieces with the tee!!! I hope you're having a wonderful holiday!

Heather said...

tres edgy!
Merry Christmas!!

Haute World said...

Definitely a versatile t-shirt. I like how you created a rocker look with this, because I'm also getting a bit of an All Saints vibe from this shirt.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas!

Shini said...

Oh Sabine, it's just perrrfect how you styled it. I've been thinking it's the perfect boyfriend tee or college tshirt that seems to have a good weight and feel to it but I never thought of wearing it with anything other than jeans! That vest + bag (scottish highlander?)... absolutely loving the layering.

Happy happy holidays xxx

Ilse said...

nice combo!! and you have quite a funny style of writing, love it!

Pratishtha Durga said...

You definitely rock this look. Love the boots. Amazing how many looks one can achieve with just one tee...

Kb said...

Love your analysis of the tee and how you made it work, I'm writing a lot about branding for my dissertation and Wildfox had this down to a tee (geddit) selling the 'lived in' look. Love the boots too.

alessandra nitti said...
