Holiday Gift Guide Day 2 - Blue Platypus Clothing Review and Giveaway

Today's gift idea is brought to you by Blue Platypus.


Blue Platypus was conceived in 2003 and features vintage inspired clothing with a modern twist.  The talent behind Blue Platypus takes vintage furniture, prints, architecture, and art and transforms their inspirations into bold, eye-catching clothing. 

This shirt caught my eye right away -


But because it was out of stock, I decided to go out on a limb and try something new.


At first I was not so sure about the shape of the shirt and how it would fit. I have to say though, after wearing it, I absolutely LOVE this style of shirt! I am big on layering and the shirt fits a little short. It would be great for petite people or for people who like to layer colors.

And talk about color! This shirt has so many fun things going on. The sail boats are bright and the lines on this shirt are so fun!  The material is stretchy and the shirt has a fun sailor neck line. And it looks exactly like the picture on the website. It is very different from anything I have seen.

Shipping was unbelievably quick. No problems and I am very pleased with overall product!

To Buy It - The bold eye catching designs makes Blue Platypus Clothing a great gift for the fun fashionista!
