Blue Platypus Review and Giveaway




Blue Platypus is a clothing store I was recently introduced to. They specialize in cotton tees and tops that are easy care and low-maintenance, yet flattering and stretchy and soft. And everything is made in the U.S. which I think it important to consider, especially in these times when we are losing so many jobs to other countries. This happened to someone very close to me, and, frankly, it just sucks. Anyway, back to the review. :o) Here is what Blue Platypus has to say about their designs:

Prints, patterns, and colors from different eras play a huge role in our designs. Clean geometric as well as fluid organic shapes, e.g. silhouettes of heads, are featured in our designs. We believe that the juxtaposition of diverse elements in surprising ways is essential to the evolution of design. We create surface interest and create a cornucopia of flavors.. We also like to have prints that are interesting from afar, and surprising when scrutinized closely.
I received this Brown Houndstooth Sweatshirt to review. This shirt is extremely flattering to the figure, and soo soft! I absolutely love it! And I really, really love the neckline. It's adorable actually. The quality is very nice, and it hasn't shrunk! I also like how I can dress it down with jeans, or up with a pair of slacks and some fun jewelry.
Blue Platypus also sent me this Chinese Zodiac Ox Tee. I was born in the year of the Ox. I'm not too superstitious, but I do read my fortunes, horoscope, etc out of curiosity, so I thought this shirt was fun. It's also really soft and fitted. It has the picture of the Ox on the front, and the "Years of the Ox" on the back. Just so you know, the years of the Ox are 1925, '37, '49, '61, '73, '85, '97, 2009. Who else was born in the Year of the Ox?

Buy It:
You can find both of these tops at the Blue Platypus website.
