Embracing My Life as a Clothing Nerd.

Every few months, my favourite store for online shopping has a sale, causing me to break my budget and buy some cute and quirky shirts I don't really need. I'm not a big shopper though, so I figure that splurging every once in a while is okay.

Yep, it's the Threadless $10 sale again, just in time for Christmas. And as per usual, I've decided to indulge by nabbing myself some tee's. Anyone who's been reading these parts for a while will know that I'm addicted to them, as I find it amusing how most people just don't get the humour behind the designs. (Like this time.)

You might recognise some shirts on the website. The famous noun shirt that shows off my inner nerd. The alphabet shirt that I love wearing to school. The starry shirt I wear to concerts which gives me a glow in the dark bosom. The awesome evil bunnies shirt which makes me giggle. The scrabble shirt whose label reads 'well that just really sucks'. Plus just a couple more. I'm a trifle addicted. I love them.

What's that.. you want to click some more to see today's purchases? Alrighty! Here's what I nabbed for myself today, in a semi-boob squishing Girly XL:

Insomnia
Three Plus... One

So Far This Is The Oldest I've Ever Been
Tragedy Struck
A Key for Everything


If you're up for doing some shopping for gifts or for yourself, you should definitely check the sale out. And if you feel like purchasing, you could always click on my referral link while you're at it. Just think, not only are you nabbing yourself a bargain, you'd be helping contribute to the "Keep Aly Clothed" fund.

Happy shopping!

Dear Alynda,

I am reading your blog now for a while, but I never
react. I will try to this more often. Regarding these
shirts, I do not get it. I am from The Netherlands,
and I understand you are planning to moving to the UK and
I can tell you that it is pretty cold up here. So you
might not be able to wear these shirt until next June.
Further I do not think we find them very stylish in Europe.
How did you meet your English BF and for how long are you
together? Good luck with everything!

No wonder you're addicted to those. They are great. My favorite one among your new purchases has got to be So far this is the oldest I've ever been.
I almost fell over backwards and now I want one :)

Noelle said...

Since I'm addicted to Facebook scrabble, and I have to do all my shopping online this year, I think I found a source. Thanks!

Valerie said...

I LOVE novelty t-shirts. When I was teaching I used to wear one that said "Reading is FUNdamental" and it had a bookworm on it."

I'm totally getting the noun one and the loch ness monster one.

Ree said...

Tragedy Struck. Hee!

Did you know they recently opened a Threadless T-shirt store in Chicago? Your blog entry is the third time I've been reminded of it this week. 1) My good friend went to the store for the first time. 2) My brother told me the only thing he wants to do while in town this week (besides eat turkey for Thanksgiving) is go to the Threadless store. 3) And now you have mentioned it, too. It's hot, eh?!

This sounds like a great idea for someone's Secret Blogger Santa...! :)

sognatrice said...

These are so fun, and so completely lost on anyone in southern Italy :(

On the bright side, I've tagged you:

Laurel said...

I love the sheep one too (or at least I want to be twins with Janet.) Too cute!

Operation Pink Herring said...

I read this post last night right before bed and I DREAMT ABOUT THREADLESS SHIRTS. Specifically, the insomnia one. That one is real, right? With the sheep? It better be real because I NEED IT.

Two questions for you before I blow my paycheck on tshirts: Do you recommend buying a size up from regular? I think you have said before that they run small. Two sizes up? And secondly, was there once a link where you got credit for referring people to the site? Where would I find this if it exists?

nicheplayer said...

Have you contributed any pictures of yourself to the galleries there?

Katie said...

Those are hilarious! I really love the Loch Ness Imposter one :)

Operation Pink Herring said...

OK, I am terribly embarrassed. Please ignore both my questions as I have now re-read the post. I want the insomnia shirt for a reason!!

Candy said...

So far this is the oldest I've ever been! ::snort::

nancypearlwannabe said...

I totally bought a couple of t-shirts, too. Love Threadless!

Leslie said...

I adore the keys and "Tragedy Strikes"! Too funny! And anyone that doesn't "get it" is a chuckle head! (Kidding!)

Jamie said...

I love the noun one!

Viviane said...

Haha, those are great shirts!

katelin said...

I love the "This is the oldest I've ever been" shirt, haha. That is great. Actually I love them all, nice picks :)

MMDesigns said...

I LOVE Threadless! They have the best tees! :)

Larissa said...

Oh, no! The Threadless sale is so freakin' dangerous!

Heather B. said...

I like you because you're just as obsessed with Threadless as I am. Also, you probably say all of the themes of the shirts in a cool accent. That is all.

(this is why I read but don't comment; because they are all crap. Ugh)

Amanda said...

oooh i just checked it out and the designs are GREAT.

Not really my top style though - the neck line would choke me. I must have a fat neck.

Miss-Mrs a blog of everyday delights said...

I LOVE the stars one! and the sheep. and scrabble. i might have to go shopping.... :)

Ashlie said...

I've never heard of that shop before! I'm now trotting over to see it asap.....

kerrianne said...

Um, yeah. I'm now in BIG trouble. I totally forgot about Threadless sales. I mean, who can forget, really? But I DID, and oh, how my bank account was in bliss.

She Likes Purple said...

I'm going to have to go browse now. I thank you sincerely. Mike thanks you sarcastically ;)

Audrey said...

Thank you for mentioning this sale! Tim LOVES quirky T-shirts, and thanks to you, I am now no longer stumped for what to get him for Christmas. Thank you!!!

Audrey said...

Shoot! I just saw that "Tragedy Struck" isn't available in Tim's size, and it would have been perfect! That's okay, there are a couple of others that he'll like. How does the sizing run on the guys' shirts, do you know?

Stephanie said...

Oh yes I am a huge bargain shopper and I always make sure to have enough to go out and take part in those sales. Gotta love cute skirts when it comes to summertime that is for sure. Nice post!
