ain't laurent.

the big news around here is the giant surf hitting hawaii's north shores this week. the expected waves of 40-50ft high, biggest this decade, were deemed too dangerous and deadly even for professional big-wave surfers. oh how i wish i was at the beach house this week...these huge waves are such an awesome sight to see.

another jeans + tee combo wearing this parodical tee from Patty's Closet. in case you were wondering, the saying was meant to be somewhat of a spoof on the renaming of the legendary fashion house, yves saint laurent. the brand's most recent designer chose to drop 'yves' and work under saint laurent. the iconic interlocking YSL symbol is what many of us associate the brand with, and some people were not happy with the loss of Y. the result? this tee. what are your thoughts on this?

stay tuned tomorrow for another awesome giveaway.

I heard about the waves on the news! To me, it will always be "Yves" st. Laurent, I didn't like that they chose to change it, but oh well. Loving your nod to '90s look! /Madison :)

Looking great, girl!

I don't know about YSL but I'm in love with the jeans and the plaid shirt! What a bohemian look!

If you happen to go soon to the beach house, please take some pics, I really want to see the huge waves!

Love the tee and I completely agree with what it says. Hate that they took the Yves out of YSL.

i lov flannel! this outfits great!

Cel said...

I can't imagine a 50ft wave! There were some pretty massive waves when I visited the east coast in Nova Scotia but wow. I'm not a brand-oriented person, I actually try to avoid anything that has a company or brand name on it because I don't like paying to be walking advertising for a massive corporation. I like it in this case though, it's kinda pro-little-designer.

Very nice combination, I always adore boot cut jeans, legs appear longer :)
