Our WILDFOX Love Affair!
Once upon a time in 2007, we fell in love with a WILDFOX
We call it Fate
Way back in 2007, when Spoiled Brat was 2 years old, we were surfing the internet and stumbled across some quirky sweaters by a little known brand called – WHITEHORSE COUTURE. Instantly it was love & so our 9 year love affair consumed.
Since then, Whitehorse, has become the cult worldwide phenomenon brand Wildfox which is lusted after by the a-list of celebrities and bloggers alike.
For those of you who dont know this brand (first of all, where have you been?!) … but really this is a vintage-inspired women’s fashion brand based in LA LA Land. It was co-created by two childhood BFF’s, who were inspired by their mutual love for vintage t-shirts and their friendship.
Today, the brand continues with this ethos, under the Creative Direction of founding partner Kimberley Gordon.
We have yet to meet anyone who doesnt like this quirky brand – to be honest, we really don’t understand how people cannot like Wildfox?! There is really nothing not to like about them – their lookbooks rock, we spend hours lusting over them. They are super inspiring, super fun and girly and literally made for us. They talk to us – they read our dreams!
Our reasons for LOVING Wildfox :
Their t-shirts always relate to our life and are funny with guarantees to make you happy 🙂
Yeah ….. this is awkward
You can wear them to literally ANY event – even a wedding (and we have!)
Wildfox has a t-shirt for that. They have a crazy imagination. Whether you’re getting married, hungover, or love camping etc, they have something that you can instantly relate to. A top that’ll cheer you up every time you wear it! Worth it.
If you’re a sucker for nostalgia (like us!) then Wildfox reads your mind – they are psychic honestly!! The whole line is based off intangible things: friendship, good times, and good memories. We live for so many of their sayings.
Quality – Their fabrics are softer than anything you’ll ever touch.
Have you ever felt their beach jumpers? Just WOW!
Yes, we agree that their product is on the pricey side. But you will have no regrets here for the quality and comfort. Everything is made in the US from the most comfy blends & its all ethical fashion – check out our previous blog.
You pay for a product that will become a staple in your wardrobe faster than you’d ever believe.
Something you’ll want to LIVE in as soon as you put it on.
To sum it all up – Wildfox is more than a brand, it’s a lifestyle.
The slogans, words, and dreams that are us.
That is why we heart Wildfox.
You can wear wildfox clothing and make whatever statement you want!

Bella Thorne Off Duty Style in Lauren Moshi
Bella Thorne found fame as a disney star, but the now 19 year old has evolved into quite the fashionista in recent years, developing her own unique grungy style. Bella isn’t afraid to experiment with fashion, which is something we love about her.
She was snapped out with a gal pal in California yesterday, in typical Bella style! Wearing an oversized purple hoodie, matched up with our Lauren Moshi cashmere silver star statement beanie, white perforated leggings, HUF socks and – topping off her look – a pair of coordinating converse Stan Smith’s, Bella managed to effortlessly stylish.
It also seems that Bella has developed a love affair with one of our fav brands from the States, Lauren Moshi. She is regularly snapped wearing some of their pieces. In our blog post yesterday, we discussed the reasons for buying designer brands like Lauren Moshi. Its a family run brand, started by a brother and sister team. They hand draw and design everything in house. Its completely unique, and there is so much time and passion put into this brand. Everything is then ethically produced by them, in house. The quality of their product is second to none. It washes amazingly , and the fabric literally hangs off your body. Its quite simply devine – and the graphic artwork gives you a piece of fashion which you can dress up or down as you wish. The great thing is , everything that is produced, is done so in limited quantities – making it very special and unique. Their whole brand ethos is based on a clothing range, which is targeted towards customers who appreciate the finer details and intricate designs.
Bella’s exact beanie, is a cashmere black beanie, with silver embroidered stars. Its so warm, and such high quality – which will never go out of fashion.

The Only Way is Designer.
When you want to treat yourself to some new clothes, the temptation is to go to the likes of Primark and spend £5-10 on a new top!
Well we want to change that by giving you our 5 reasons to buy designer luxury, brands like wildfox, the laundry room and chaser brand – and here’s why……
1 : Designer Tees are Ethically Made!
This is our main reason for investing into a luxury tee.
Jerseys & knits, are very easy to make. The design is simple, the fabric is very easy to manage on a sewing machine and it literally takes seconds to sew. Did you know that tshirts are one of the cheapest items, to buy because they are also the cheapest to produce! Most t-shirts that cost under £20.00 are either made in mass quantities overseas, where there is little or no regulation, big fabric waste and in some cases by labourers, who are not being paid fairly and even children.
Look for American made brands like Wildfox or The Laundry Room. These brands are all made in the USA. Or even smaller brands like The Ragged Priest – all made in house in the UK, by a small team. So you are supporting local businesses, and real people – who believe in their product.
2. Better fabrics change the game:
Better fabrics, like modal, terry or organic cottons take the design and fit to a whole new level. We absolutely love the unique and special prints and fabrics used by the likes of Lauren Moshi and Wildfox.
But if terry t-shirts are not your thing, look out for organic cottons. The industrialized cotton industry has high rates of suicide in India and cancers in farmers inside the US. Shopping for organic cotton not only helps smaller farmers, it’s also better for our body.
This Laundry Room Tee has a speciality knit fabric
3. Better Design:
Fast fashion companies knock off designs within minutes of hitting the shelves sometimes bluntly stealing work from fashion designers. Buying from companies like Primark , has a strong impact in the fashion industry: those companies force the industry to work faster leaving no time for the incubation of ideas.
By shopping for luxury tees you are not only paying for a simple t-shirt, you are breeding creativity from design to photos, lots of people are getting paid by you! You are supporting small brands like Ragged Priest – in house designed and made, something they are very proud of. And the Laundry Room – a family company who do everything in house.
Just look at Wildfox, Laundry Room and The Ragged Priest, you will see that their designs are not only more exclusive, they’re also much more unique. Do you really want to look like everyone else? Or be an individual.
4. T-Shirts are everyday pieces:
We wear a t-shirt pretty much every day! We see them as investment pieces, as they are super versatile you can dress up and dress down. When you invest in a luxury t-shirt, you know you will be wearing it for years.
For example a Lauren Moshi t-shirt costs over £50.00, but since I will be using it many times over a long period, the cost of wearing that t-shirt is about £0.00! While a t-shirt you buy from Primark – which we hold our hands up, we have done, usually can only be worn once or twice, they dont wash well or keep their shape and they bobble real quick.
5. A more fashionable wardrobe!
Anyone who loves their fashion, know where to spend their money and a survey taken shows that most agree basics should be the most expensive pieces in your wardrobe – because these are worn most!
These pieces should be affordable enough for you not to go broke, but expensive enough that they seem like a treat to buy. The great thing also with investing into a luxury tee, is that you can mix them up with other pieces.
Lauren Moshi tees are all hand designed and hand printed in LA, but a family. They make the nicest, unique designs and they tees literally hang off your body like a glove. The fabric lasts forever and its great for mixing up with other garments.
Hopefully this has convinced you to invest your hard earned cash into more luxury garments.
