Lately, I have been on the fence... Do I want to buy less, but spend more one the individual item, meaning they (hopefully) will last me longer. Or, not? I decided to give it a try with the T by Alexander Wang line. Along with Helmut Lang, Mr. Wang is the one designer I am currently a bit obsessed with. Not purchasing-wise, just drooling-wise. I love the clean cut basics with a little twits. I especially like the asymmetrical Helmut Lang pieces. He is Austrian as well, so I feel I have to support him..I will, just not now. Now is about Alexander Wang. I got the muscle shirt in purple - I can get the white or black one anytime, but purple seems to be seasonal..? I also got the infamous skirt, but I had to send it back for an exchange. Although I got both pieces in S, the skirt was a little too tight for my likinig. It seemed to ride up when I was walking around, so back it goes and I hope the M does not do that.
So for the shirt..
OMG!!! It feels soooo soft. It is longer than other ordinary basics and runs quite baggy. I don't know if the cut will suit everyone, but I so didn't care when I realized how soft and luxurious it felt.
I will have to evaluate over time, if I would recommend these kind of shirts though. One downside is that it is handwash only. Why? Do I really want to pay that much and then have to wash it by hand? The second thing is that I was soo careful today when wearing it. Making sure my bag doesnt scuff the shirt, that noone ruins it by standing too close - You with the ICE CREAM, go away!! , taking it off extra carefully...I don't know. I am glad I got it since I loove love love the color and feeling on me, but I am not yet sure if I need more in my live. I cannot wait until the skirt arrives again and I can wear the shirt with it.
Now, do I need a Rocco to make that look even more perfect..Need to think about that... :)
