Hello everyone! Today I am introducing you to the awesome brand named Fivepoundtee* who have kindly sent me some of their clothing to share with you guys! Straight off the bat I can tell you they provide such good quality products for what I consider to be such reasonable pricing! A good t-shirt for only £5!???? I received such a lovely email from the company asking if I would be interested in working with them and of course I was thrilled, looking at their products I made a mental note of tees I would even purchase myself when pay day came around. The designs range from illustrations on the breast pocket to text across the chest, large designs on jumpers or fun quotes.

I always seem to realize how much I love graphic t-shirts or jumpers when I have them in front of me, they're great for adding that extra detail of interest to an outfit and sometimes can nail your personality in one design. They interact with modern culture, picking popular quotes and images, but making these designs their own to portray such a unique brand. Not only have I wanted to share Fivepoundtee* with you but I also wanted to share how I have dressed these items. For me a graphic t-shirt and jumper can be the hardest things to style, so I hope you find this post to give you some ideas...

(my hair looks so blue why is it blue?! I want blue hair)

I fell in love with this Stone Head Sweater* the moment I saw it, something about the sculptured head reminding me of my trips to the galleries in London and also Greek sculptures (even though I am unsure what origin the sculpture is in the design). I am a fiend for only wearing long jumpers to lounge around the house in, so for me this was a challenge to dress but I wanted to see how I would style it myself to wear outside. I went for a casual approach but with aspects that were myself, for instance the hat and these awesome black and white checkered legging material trousers I recently purchased at Primark. You could either style this with some heels to make it fancy or dress it down with trainers. At only £12 I think that is an absolute bargain considering plain tops sell for that price. 

I love this Crown tee* not just because it is black and that's what I'm all about, but the design is also quite illustrated along with text. 'Post Modern' is the text written below which again links to my art interests, I thought it was quite quirky as I haven't seen a top like this anywhere else. At only £5 a t-shirt I cannot fault Fivepoundtee*, they are clearly doing something right as the quality is amazing, along with fit. 

I decided to dress this t-shirt a little more like myself as I can pair black with anything, going for some high waist skinny jeans, leather jacket, boots and a floppy hat! I love this almost 'Haim' style of dress, the full print of the t-shirt being on show which is what I aimed for. I could also dress this with a high waist skirt or tucked into the jeans, but for showing the design this look I found worked well. 

Thankyou so much Fivepoundtee* for sending me these cool pieces! I definitely recommend checking them out as c'mon, their tops are only £5! Are there any pieces from their website that you like the look of? Let me know in the comments!

Thankyou for reading guys, till next time
