Young Love

Last year I was head over heels for Peter Bjorn and John’s Young Folks; a few years previous I was obsessed with the quirky Napoleon Dynamite; and now my heart belongs to this unconventional Young Love Tee from Delia’s which manages to conjure up thoughts of both beloved fads of my past.

The black and white sketch epitomizes the true meaning of fashionable young love – she in a 60’s inspired ensemble complete with thick-framed glasses, ankle socks, and short shorts; he in a bowler hat with skinny jeans and a trendy scarf exuding a relaxed, laid-back cool guy persona – while maintaining an easy, breezy, retro feel that you could eat up with a spoon. Reminiscent of the illustration’s found within the pages of Louise Fitzhugh’s Harriet the Spy, this is one of those rare finds that impulse buys were made for.

Now that’s what I’m talking about!


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Delia's for the picture.

I saw that tshirt on Delias but didn't buy it. Now after reading your post, I'm tempted to snatch one right now! xxoxoxxo

Oh my goodness, this t-shirt is so nice! Really love it. I wonder if they ship to the UK?

Re: headbands - I love them so much, and really want to be able to wear them in the Blair-esque way that you described, where they sit on your head but allow your hair to be soft. For some reason, I just can't get the placement quite right! Maybe I need to curl the front pieces? How do you do it?

Delia's has really adorable tees. I remember one that I bought from them when I was in highschool said "I ♥ Skinny Boys With Glasses." It looked handwritten, with a scribbled stick-figure Harry Potter looking guy, and it was so cute.

BTW Young Folks is such a great song, great for summer. Love your blog =)
