I *heart* Daftbird
Of all the many fashion trends that I've loved over the years, the one I adore most is T-shirts.
Graphic, plain, loose-fitting — I love them all. And, I pretty much own them all.
While different fashion mags have anointed brands like Kain and Neal Sperling as the ultimate, my all-time favorite is Daftbird.
Designer Joshua Christopher created his line, which primarily focuses on shirts, to recreate that cuddly, broken-in feel of wearing a boyfriend's shirt. You can find v-necks, spaghetti-strap tanks, henleys and loose-fitting scoopnecks that feel just downright incredible. By stockpiling from swayandcake.com and revolveclothing.com, I've compiled an arsenal of Daftbird that includes 100-percent cotton, a snuggly cotton-modal blend and an amazing menage a trois of 50 percent poly-37.5 percent cotton-12.5 percent rayon. Honestly, I think I've started to cause pilling on a few shirts because they're so darn soft that I just pat the tummy area, marveling at the Charminlike softness.
Some people collect Louis Vuitton bags, I hoard anything made of that fabric holy trinity. It's that great.
My latest acquisition is this soft vest that crosses a sweet grandpa-ish cardigan front with a rock-n-roll short hem in the back. Thanks, Swayandcake!
The best part is, you can find screaming deals on Daftbird right now. So, what are you waiting for — check it out.
