Snapmade T-shirt: I'm here for the beer

Question: How to wear your boyfriend's clothes when he's 3 times your size? 
Answer: Tuck it in woman!

The time has come to present the second t-shirt from Snapmade, which I decided to get for my lumberjack man of the house. He's an avid appreciator of beer, sometimes I jokingly call him a beer barrel, a beer potato chip, a beer keg... I think he doesn't mind, or at least if he does, he must be very passive aggressive about it because I can't sense it at all! 


If you missed it, you can have a peek at my Snapmade review here. If you're too lazy to read, (you bum) Snapmade is a website which specializes into selling personalized gifts. They have a stamping tool and you can pick any sort of merchandise, from bottles to pillow cases and stamp it with your own text or geeky picture. 


I love these guys! The beer t-shirt must have had some magical threads sewn into it, because the boyfriend was willing to pose and be photographed. Which is like making a cat posing for a camera! An impossible feat, but when the planets adjust in the right position at the right time, the result is a photo shoot that you can only see once, during an eclipse! So bask in the glory of my boyfriend cat-like creature while you can!


The outfit he chose is a timeless classic: t-shirt with a longer shirt layered underneath and sporty military pants with sneakers. You'd think that this is something the boyfriend put some thought into, but he's the type of man that never thinks about what to wear...You know, like those strange humans that don't like to dress up...those strange strange humans that don't like clothes...they creep me out. O_o


Of course, I liked the t-shirt so much I couldn't pass the opportunity to immediately slide my skinny body into it! Since I'm three times smaller than the boyfriend, I looked like a deformed grocery bag, so I decided to play it cool, tucked the t-shirt into a leather skirt and placed my new aztec print cardigan on top. 



For this outfit I wanted an overall feeling of cheerfulness, because beer, so I picked a cardigan with more color to it, purple lace boots and mirror glasses. I thrifted the cardi from Humana's second hand shop, alongside with a few other goodies I'll be posting about soon. Basically everything here is thrifted, except for the t-shirt and glasses. I'm a second hand junkie!

Noisy May Christine Knit Cardigan + Nmenouno Bag

What I always say about bags is, except the fact that I wish mine came with a freezer compartment so I can store food, but another thing I always say is, a women's bag is not a bag if you can't fit a crossbow in it! My new bag from Nmenouno does the exact opposite. I wore it when we bought the crossbow for Christmas, which I showed you in my December favorites, and not only did the crossbow fit, but the bag had a few small pockets for storing my lipstick too. Double win!


Jokes aside, (I'm not joking, I'm dead serious) today's outfit is an attempt at mixing different fabrics, and Nmenouno's bag was perfect for the job. I wanted to create an outfit consisted of vast amount of patterns, colors and textures, so for the first layer I chose a feminine shift dress with lace. I think the mixture of the bag's sturdy fabric and creative motives, and the delicate material of the dress is a winning combo. 


For the upper layer I couldn't help myself but wore my new Christine knit cardigan I was secretly saving for a second hand haul post. The reason I'm so excited for the cardigan is that it is from Noisy May, but I found it brand new in a thrift store for the amount of 15$! Whoever gave away this mouthful of deliciousness, thank you!!! It now has a proud and happy owner and I'm giving it away only over my dead gorgeous body!


For jewelry this is the first time I decided to wear my golden swan necklace that was hand crafted for my graduation. I must have been a very delicate soul back then, considering I wanted a swan. If you ask me what I want handcrafted now, I'd probably say a golden pizza. I guess when you turn 25 priorities shift!


For a complete textured finish, I paired everything with my favorite chunky gray socks, camel booties and black leggings.

If you had a chance to get a handcrafted jewel what would you want it to be?

Neil deGrasse Tyson and Carl Sagan Geeky T-shirt from Snapmade + Review

Check out my new specks you guys!!! I look like a sexy teacher! Okay...moving on!

I don't know how it is in your countries, but here in Bulgaria, stamping and customizing gifts is a drag. We've got the type of stupid sayings and pictures, you wouldn't stamp on the coffin of your worst enemy's funeral and even if you did, you'd end up with a crappy faded stamp anyway. 
I tried stamping a few t-shirt back in the days and after I received a few faded and cracked stamps, the mere thought of customizing my crappy coffee mug with crappy pictures, made me shiver!
So when Snapmade invited me to review their products I was overwhelmed and relieved by all the witty and thoughtful stamps they offered.


Brand Summary

Snapmade is an online store that helps you design and customize your own personalized gifts. They have an easy to use online customization tool for stamping all sorts of lovely merchandise, which you can pretend were meant as a gift, but in the end keep for yourself, because you're an egotistical sociopath like me! ^_^
The store offers a wide variety of products like candles, pillows, aprons, bottles, bookmarks, as well as an adorable little teddy bear I want to suffocate with love! O_O 
Considering my previous history with crappy t-shirts, I decided to leave the teddy bear for future Keit and tried out their custom made t-shirts service!


What I ordered

They had a lot of geeky and funny stamps there, so it was hard to choose. I picked two stamps from their collection and ordered two t-shirts, one of which I'm wearing here, the other I'll be showcasing next week!
You guys know of my love for the Cosmos series and Carl Sagan in particular, so upon seeing this stamp I literally forgot to breathe and almost died. Okay, fine, it was probably not as dramatic, but I did forgot to perform basic bodily functions like swallowing saliva and breathing, as well as blinking! 


Impressions

At first I wanted a different design of the t-shirt with a v-neck, but they didn't have it, so they gave me a bonus pin with the same stamp for compensation, which I think was very sweet! 
The shipping took a month, but I think it was because I ordered everything right before the holidays, when packages are being delayed and even lost. So I'm guessing if you order on a normal and not so busy time, it will arrive faster. 
The quality is spot on, the t-shirts are pure 100% cotton and the stamp is crisp, vivid and not chipped at all. Overall, I'm very pleased and happy by the collaboration with Snapmade and I'm planning on getting my hands on that teddy bear sooner or later! O_O
Have you guys ever shopped there? What was your impression? Stay tuned for outfit shots of the second t-shirt!
