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.

The famous Juicy Couture tracksuits are now a museum exhibit – yes really!
Don’t throw out that old Juicy Couture tracksuit just yet!
Back in the good old days, the non so distant “noughties” aka 2000s, Juicy Couture jogger suits were the absolute ultimate in lounge wear. All the cool girls wore them, paired up with the Juicycouture charm bracelets and pink velour tote juicy bags. But now, curators at London’s Victoria & Albert museum have a new purpose for the once vogue leisurewear…… a museum exhibit!!!
While, Juicy’s colourful tracksuits are currently making a huge coming back on the fashion scene, they have also just become part of the V&A’s “Underdressed: A Brief History of Underwear” exhibit, as an immortalised part of fashion history. The iconic Juicy Couture piece however is in good “fashionable” company, by being joined by the likes of Kate Moss’ famously see-through Liza Bruce dress along with pieces designed by Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Vivienne Westwood and more. The exhibit is running right now – until the end of this year. Will you check it out?
While the Juicy Couture tracksuit may be a museum piece, as we have mentioned, the tracksuits are currently undergoing a huge revival, with Juicy relaunching these for AW16 under the hashtag #Trackisback
Juicy Couture has become an iconic brand and their velour tracksuits are not only super comfortable, but also downright unforgettable. Because who could possibly fail to remember Amy Poehler’s pink terry set from Mean Girls? (She was always the cool mum). Paris Hilton was practically the poster child for the suit set back in the day, as was her pal Kim Kardashian. Even Britney Spears, Eva Longoria and Vanessa Hudgens were all big fans.
Even Kim Kardashian mentioned Juicy in her own blog, this week
“When I look back at old photos, I can’t believe some of the outfits I used to wear! I was SO obsessed with those classic Juicy Couture tracksuits a few years ago, and had them in every color. I still have all of mine, I can’t let them go LOL! Vogue.com just featured me in a story on the possible comeback of this look, so I thought I’d share this epic fashion throwback with you guys!”
Juicy Couture has always been one of our favourite brands – statement making, super girly and fun. The fact that they are now being immortalised in a museum, shows just how iconic a brand this is and continues to be. At spoiled brat you can shop a range of Juicy Couture Jewellery and Juicy Couture Bags and for the SS17 season we will be an official stockist of Juicy Clothes – so yes you can get the Juicy tracksuit with us , but not until next year (soz!)
Enjoy browsing our range online now of Juicy Couture – we are an official UK online Juicy Couture stockist!

From Jamie Chung’s ribbed knit dress to Kendall Jenner’s crocheted number, these were some of the hot looks from the festival. Kendall’s cute minnie ears hairdo and glitter roots are the trend of the moment too!
Why not mix up a dressy Lavish Alice dress with some wellington boots? Or wear a bikini under a crochet UNIF dress? and throw in some glitter roots to get the festival chic style? and of course the essential eyewear – Quay Eyeware is your go to brand!
Newly blonde bombshell, Taylor Swift rocked a casual look for this years festival. A simple, comfortable yet cool look, completed with her trademark red lippy.
One of the most important things about dressing for a festival is comfort – you need to look good, however you need to feel comfortable. Taylor has nailed it here with her look, comfy flats, perfect for lots of walking and dancing! A comfy mini and cool oversized tee – go to wildfox for the essential tee.
Here’s some suggestions to get the Taylor Festival Look
With this being the UK, we arent always guaranteed the sunshine like Coachella. So really you need to go prepared for all seasons in one day.

The Cropped Top : This Years Essential Wardrobe Item
Have you worked out how to wear a crop top yet?
Have you plucked up the courage to wear a cropped top yet?
The cropped style has been around for quite a few seasons past now, but there are still some who understandably feel nervous about wearing one & rightly so we say, after all we dont all have perfectly toned tummies. But fear not, believe us when we say that just because the top is short, it doesn’t have to mean you need a six pack as an essential pre-requisite for styling out this now-staple wardrobe addition. Have you not heard of LAYERING? Well the cropped top is perfect to dabble in this trend – layer over maxi dresses, vest tops, sweaters – ANYTHING!
The crop top may still look to you like an item from the 90s Spice Girls era, but believe us, when we say that much like leggings, it will become your go to wardrobe item. It’s all about finding your comfort, and your perfect look with the crop top in order to fully grasp the flexibility and style credentials of wearing a crop top which you have unlimited possibilities with – from layering under a pair of native rose dungarees with your favourite liquor n poker bomber thrown over the top, or team with an funky minkpink maxi skirt and heels for an evening look. To prove our point, we’ve styled one key crop top SEVEN ways for 7 completely different events. We actually could have gone on with more and more looks – but didnt want to bore you!
How to wear a crop top? Your about to be enlightened 🙂 scroll down to see the fabulous looks we have pulled together and see how easy it actually is.

Let Festival Season & Festival Fashion Commence…..
We love this time of year, the sun is starting to make an appearance and we have seen (and drooled) over all the pics from Coachella & all the celebs festival looks! That means one thing, we will soon be in the midst off full blown festival season, when every weekend is filled with some sort of outdoor music event, so there is one thing for sure – your wardrobe will need sorting out.
Now in all seriousness, how to get the festival look? Well when we think of festival fashion, we look to our celebs for some inspiration. Celebs who have stylists, who pick the best trends and styles! So look to our festival style idols Kate Bosworth, Kate Moss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Vanessa Hudgens and Alexa Chung, who look stylish, comfortable and also as if they’re prepared for what is essentially a big wet stag do with lots of music in the background (Ok, fine maybe not Bosworth, Alessandra & Vanessa, who tend to opt for the warmer festival options, ie non British!).
These girls however have shown us that you don’t have to wear hotpants, nor do you have to wear a floral headband!
What you will need is a warm jacket (unless you’re lucky enough to attend a festival outwith the UK, in which case just a good pair of sunglasses will do); a slouchy jumper and a nifty pair of shorts. You need to be able to dance as energetically as Jagger and be fit enough to walk for miles without getting wet feet or being in pain!
Going to a festival is a test of endurance, literally! I remember my 1st festival, T In The Park and having a blast during the day in the rain only to go back to the campsite for the evening and discover a rain flooded tent. You need to have patience and expect all seasons! Your festival ‘wardrobe’ , should therefore be a survival kit, packing light however is the key; ensuring all essentials to make the experience easier. If you think about what you’re wearing once you’re there, then its FACT that you’re not having enough fun. If your shoes or dress cross your mind once when you’re inside those dance tents, then walk to the nearest bar or fun fair immediately – on our command!
So we have taken the heat for you & scoured our online store (we have a fancy online festival fashion shop set up too just for you) to help you find shopping ideas to help you cater to every kind of festival, to make sure that fun is your priority, not what you look like! The perfect denim-cut offs; the suede jacket that will keep you warm when day turns to night; durable, but stylish footwear ideal for dancing; and the dress that will make you feel as carefree as boho 70s chic! Brands like unif, minkpink and the ragged priest are quite simply made for festivals!
