A tale of tee (deconstructed, too)

A couple of weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of a contest CC of Couture Carrie had on her blog. The prize? A deconstructed Elizabeth and James tee, awesomely oversized and slouchy. My favourite kinda tee.

So it arrived on Friday and I opened up the gorgeously wrapped package from with glee. I have to say I was very pleased at how fast they shipped the tee over to me, how incredible this tee feels on and how much it goes with (bearing in mind its a light peach colour and stupidly coolly oversized).

With an extra day on my hands (Foundation Day for us West Australians :), I decided to be self-indulgent and staged a mini-photoshoot in my backyard. Stuart graciously agreed to take all photos and we had a ball, laughing it up whilst we took pseudo poseurish pics.

Ahhh, fun times.
(p.s. I thought about editing these, but my laziness prevailed)

Wooooow Wooooow Woooooow You're Truly Astonishing with your shiny leggings, OR a deconstructed tee AND a Dizzy casualness, gladly "GLAMazon-esque" !!!!
ps: Eeeeeuuuuuuhh I think I would certainly have fainted with the same version "Alcôvesque-ly declined without tee" !!!!
