Lazy Oaf and all that Jazz.

22 March 2010

I've never actually bought anything from Lazy Oaf before but whenever I'm in London and around Carnaby St, I always stop by and check out their fun printed tees. I saw these sweater dresses on their website and I really want one. Bit of a dilemma though because I love both and my lowly student funds only stretch to one! I'm swayed more towards the sailor one, what do you guys think?



I'm also itching to read this book (once I've handed in my assignments) that was sent to me by the lovely people over at Aussie which was sort of part of the competition that I won with them ages ago (I went to Jasper Garvida and Betty Jackson through this competition). They took note of me mentioning it way back in December and I got a wonderful surprise in the post! Kind of shocked that they actually read my blog and did their research. Honestly, they are the nicest people ever.

To cheer me on from the dreaded work, I opened an email which made me smile, the amazing Jazz from Jazz Loves You More sent me another illustration! I loved the last one (see the side bar) and this one I love too!

Thanks Jazz! I might have to use this one in a future header!

  9. Great illustration!

    I can totally relate with the lack of funds. I would go with the sailor version just because I think you can play around with it a bit more. the second one is more hipster-ish and slightly more limiting, but still fantastic.

    As for the dresses, I like them both, but I think the first one may be more wearable (?)

  15. I j'adore Lazy Oaf! I have a bag, a pass, and loads of other bits and bobs from a goodie bag, and the Sailor Dress! It's quite expensive but it is a gorgeous design and well made!

    I recommend it :D

  34. I like the jungle print best. It's like a tongue-in-cheek version of Henri Rousseau's 'Tropical Storm with Tiger Surprise'.

    & I love those sweater dresses! I definitley prefer the sailor one though.

    As for your question about my lashes - just by using a LOT of mascara! & sometimes falsies

  38. I think I prefer the first design as the second design, whilst pretty, seems a little bit too busy to my eye. I love the nautical look that has become a Springtime favourite also. :)

    Congratulations on winning the book too - looks like a great read!

  46. I love Lazy Oaf as well! Unfortunately, I'm on the other side of the ocean so it's even more expensive to get the stuff over to me. Boo. One day I will make that purchase... I do like that sailor sweater though!
