Create Your Own Graphic Tee, Round 3!

Yeah, you read it, round 3! And this one is a total knockout. 


This time around, Bri (@meyouandaweiner) is knocking it out of the park with her rendition of a graphic tee. Seriously, this lady has some mad mad style. 
Y'all need to get on and follower her on the Instagrams. She has some of the best shots (SAD VADER!) and inspiration floating around.

Here was some of her inspiration for her t-shirt design...




and, drum roll, please....

The Pièce de résistance! (it's a bad sign I had to google how to spell that...)


Personally, I adore this. If I could do a million graphic tee designs, this would be at the top! 
I definitely love the Magnolia background (my favorite tree flower!) with the overlay of the quote over the top.

What do you think??

Create Your Own Graphic Tee, Round Two

Graphic tees. I cannot get enough right now. If it wasn't finals week, and I had more time, well, I'd be glued to photoshop even more than I am at the moment. I cannot seem to stop playing around with ideas and brainstorming and bouncing ideas around. It might become a problem. 

Anyways, you know what you're getting today! Round two of yesterday's Graphic Tee post! Who else is excited for this? If you could see me right now, you'd see me doing my funky little potty dance in my chair because I'm so excited I just might pee. But I will try to contain myself. 


Kecia (@couturezoo) and I collaborated on this one (so, pretty much, she did the brain work and I did the photoshopping). 

Her main inspiration was this sweatshirt:


Blocky photo (who doesn't love Clueless?! Definitely on my replay list.) with an overlay of white text.

So, Kecia, zoologist and animal extraordinaire, found a favorite pic and a badass saying and boom!

Here's what we got:


LOVE is not a strong enough word for this one. I'm obsessed. 
In Kecia's words, here's what she said about her Graphic Tee ideas: 

"Well, this is fun but hard! I know what I like when I see it, but coming up with an original idea is difficult!  I came up with a few ideas... Right now, my t-shirt style is pretty basic, favoring a few type of styles and that's what my brain pretty much stuck to when coming up with ideas. I love, love, love the shirts like the Clueless example, I also love the shirts that are just simple gray with black lettering and some fun saying, and loving just basic graphics and animals (think Givenchy rottweiler)."

A) Kecia is AMAZING and has super amazing tast. B) She is so creative and has so many things in her head, it's crazy. Talk about a crazy imagination- she's got it. You all need to get on Instagram and follow asap. You will thank me.

Create Your Own Graphic Tee: Round 1

I'm obsessed with graphic tees lately. Partially because I've been beyond stressed working on my master's project and have no motivation to get dressed, but more so because of the edge and ease that are associated with the trend. I mean, how could you not be comfortable in such a relaxed piece? I mean, look at these babies...

Graphic Tees


Forever 21 graphic tee / Topshop white shirt / Balmain black shirt / Topshop t shirt / Alexander McQueen Stained Glass Skull Print T-Shirt / Junk Food 'Animal' Graphic T-Shirt (Toddler Boys) Black 2T / Célfie / Sweater / Rituals bird t shirt / THE GODFATHER. LEHAPPY / modeholic / B.O.D CC Ye Snakes Hoodie

Yeah, I thought so. These are just some of my favorite (I actually caved and bought the snake print Chanel logo hoodie this week, eeeeek!) Graphic tees are great because you can dress them up, as you can see in the bottom picture there, or you can dress them down, like the top picture (doesn't that girl look so badass?) and they work for you. It doesn't help that they help my ample bosom get some extra undivided attention from a certain male audience either... 

Here's my thing though, I have a great love for graphic tees, and have tons of ideas for some great tees on my list. I mean, come on, who doesn't? 
Well, thanks to PrintKeg, now can I check one of them off my list. 
PrintKeg is teaming up with Living on the Chic and two of my favorite ex-blogger/Instagram queens Kecia (@couturezoo) and Bri (@meyouandaweiner) to bring you a series of posts on creating your own custom designed graphic tee!
Forever 21 graphic t shirt / Forever 21 crop top / Forever 21 graphic tee / Junk Food 'Animal' Graphic T-Shirt (Toddler Boys) Black 2T
I set out to make my own perfect tee with some of my own pictures I've taken over the years. 
I've always been a big fan of the Givenchy Rottweiler tee, so I went for a similar visual.

So, here's what I came up with...
I had taken a trip to the zoo one year with a friend and managed to get an amazing shot of a tiger yawning. Yes, YAWNING! I mirrored it and placed it about 3 inches down from the collar of the shirt and then... voila! Another amazing shirt, right??

I know, I know. I'm just that good. (Funny thing is that Kecia and I were on the same wavelength on this one! Call it karma, I call it DUH)

So, if you liked my design, you can no take a stab at it yourself!
PrintKeg has graciously offered a free DIY graphic tee shirt kit for one (1) individual.
