Take 10 ~ Wildfox

Photobucket

The exciting news that I mentioned in my last post is my new role as part of the Take 10 challenge. I was so excited to be asked a couple of months ago to take over from Nic (although I think she has one challenge left). I have followed the Take 10 girls with keen interest since the group started, I think it's a fantastic idea for Ten Girls to wear the same piece of clothing and each style it in their own individual way. The group has seen one or two changes since it's beginning but I think that this keeps the concept fresh, despite it being a shame to have lost Nic, Shini, Leia and Saskia.

Typically though for me, my first challenge landed right in the middle of a personal crisis, so it meant styling and photographing this Wildfox tee shirt very quickly, after a long day at work and without the usual thought that I would put into it. But at the end of the day, this is often how clothes are worn. Sometimes we just have to throw our clothes on and hope that we look presentable as a result.

The tee shirt is not an item I would usually buy. I have to say, I liked the 'Love Potion' logo, despite not being a fan of logos. And the soft quality of the fabric was very much as a vintage tee shirt would be, lovingly worn in. I rarely dress casual but I think a tee shirt is a classic item that can be styled either way. See below for how the rest of the girls have chosen to wear theirs...

Ahhh i purposefully didn't peek to get a surprise ;)
You all look great in it, and it does have that nice vintage worn in vibe.
Although you say it's not something you'd usually wear, i think you look really good in it hon

I think it shows that you are not a 'casual dresser' because even when you have to just throw something on you look wonderfully elegant and stylish. So glad to have you on board, Paula! xo

Rachel said...

Paula, it looks amazing with that skirt - I want both items! x I've been following this challenge for a while, and I'm so glad you've joined it!

Leia said...

Ooh I think you make the perfect addition to Take10! I rarely dress casually so my collection of tees is virtually nonexistant, but if it's as soft and comfortable as you say then it might be a good option for lounging around at home :)

Hope the personal crisis has been sorted out!

Love to see how you all styled the same item differently! I'm not usually a logo T-shirt wearer either so I love how yours turned so classy!

Vicki said...

Love your look my dear! :) even in the middle of a crisis you still look so chic! xo

Ms. Chyme said...

Wow looks nice. everyone has its own style of wearing clothes. And every style looks cool.

northwest is best said...

Nice work on the styling! I always think printed t-shirts go well with skirts. Jeans are a bit too obvious. I look forward to seeing how else you tackle the Take 10 challenges!

Meg said...

Oh I love how you have styled it!! one of my favs of the 10 I must say! I do love an a-line skirt - very flattering, and with the tshirt knotted looks fab!
