Found – A miracle White t-shirt!

When you look at the items that all wardrobes should have, a simple, classic white t-shirt is certainly one of the things to make the list. An item you can dress up, or dress down, this is an iconic piece that has been worn by the likes of James Dean, Steve McQueen and Brigitte Bardot in the past, and is now a staple for the likes of Blake Lively, Lana Del Rey and  Angelina Jolie. A white t-shirt is a style statement that always looks good and never goes out of fashion.

But as much as this is a keystone item in your wardrobe, it is also one that probably gets replaced on a regular basis. Because keeping a white t-shirt white is not always that easy, especially if you have a young child around. Stains caused by red wine, coffee, curry and tomato pasta sauce are not always easy to remove, even with stain remover, and so, many t-shirts that still have lots of wear in them shape wise, have to be discarded due to rather nasty discolouration. But thanks to Australian company Threadsmiths, this may be a thing of the past.

Threadsmiths make stain-proof T-Shirts that are made from 100% cotton using a hydrophobic nanotechnology. The  T-Shirt completely resists all water based liquids such as coffee, red wine and coke, with liquid simply bouncing off the fabric to avoid any unsightly stains.  You can watch an example of this in the video below.

 

The t-shirt comes in a range of sizes, and is available for men, women and children. It is fully machine washable, and the water repellent is simply reactivated by tumble drying the t-shirt at normal to dry heat. I was sent a ladies Cavalier design to test drive and was super impressed. The design was feminine, with a good amount of stretch and a flattering neckline, and the t-shirt was long enough in the body for me not to be trying to pull it down (I call it the Winnie the Pooh effect – you know exactly what I mean!).

The t-shirt does exactly what it says it does, repels fluids and liquids that would otherwise cause stains that would then be hard to shift. This makes the t-shirt appear fresh and crisp, even when you have been wearing it all day.

This is clever technology that is sure to save you money as you replace your white t-shirt on a less regular basis. Style and technology merging happily to create a great product.

The Gatsby Girl premiere and shop the trend at Lipsy

The Great Gatsby is turning out to be the most influential fashion event of 2013. The premiere at the Cannes film festival on Friday was a super stylish event which saw the attendees pulling out all the stops in the style stakes. To put it quite simply, the abundance of beautiful looks on the big screen meant that it was simply unthinkable not to make the same amount of effort off-screen. Most fashion critics even commented on how glamorous the normally low-key star, Carey Mulligan looked on the red carpet, with sleek long hair and a slash of red lipstick.

Great Gatsby Premiere stars

Lipsy has some great Gatsby inspired pieces at the moment. Placing emphasis on the beautiful beading that was so important to the trends of the 1920s, but bringing things bang up to date with shorter lengths and strapless bodices, Lipsy have really excelled in creating pieces that will be perfect for addressing this trend now, but also surviving into next season and proving to be a great option come party season.

Take a look at some of my favourite pieces from the Gatsby trend at Lipsy.

Blue is most definitely the colour this season

If you want to update your wardrobe in the simplest way possible this season, add a touch of blue. Blue is most definitely the colour to be seen in, in any of the many shades of blue. From the azure sea shades, to the deepest of midnight blue, to royal blues and turquoise, all the shades are covered and styled, in so many different shades.

The celebrities are wearing it so well at the moment and offering divine fashion inspiration. Model of the moment Cara Delevingne shows that bronze is the perfect colour to clash with your cornflower blue shades. Lana Del Rey should be singing her rendition of ‘Blue Velvet’ in that midnight blue dress (and yes, I know it is silk she is wearing, not velvet…). I love the freshness of gorgeous redhead Jessica Chastain in a stunning turquoise ruffle dress, whilst ‘Girls’ star and new fashion favourite Alison Williams looks just incredible in her vintage style mid-blue dress. And, finally, in the week of  her husbands second inauguration, Michelle Obama looked almost regal in Reed Krakoff dress in, you’ve guessed it, yet another shade of blue.
