obsessed.: Tee Fury


When it comes to casual wear, you can pretty much expect to see me sporting the ever-classic t-shirt and jeans combo whenever I'm able. I love the comfort and the ease of the look, plus the many opportunities for layering.

I've got a whole lot of t-shirts in my closet, many of them featuring nerdy art and hailing from the little boy's section at Old Navy. (They always seem to have great superhero and Star Wars shirts in stores.) Should I probably be looking for more age-appropriate attire to wear on casual Friday and the weekends? Sure. But where's the fun in that?

Before Christmas last year, I was alerted to an until-then unbeknownst to me site that is good for my closet, but not so good for my wallet: TeeFury.

The site's business plan is a unique one—one $10 shirt is sold per day. When 24 hours are up, another goes on sale and the previous one is sent to the archives. (This is why it wasn't the best site to use for the giveaway, since there aren't a variety of options to choose from with TeeFury like there is with Threadless. You have entered the giveaway, yes?)

I ended up buying three shirts from the site for Colt for Christmas (two of which I also got for myself) and have since then bought two more for myself, and two more for Colt. It's really easy to get obsessed. with checking the site each morning, and talking myself out of yet another shirt-of-the-day has become a weekly challenge.

I guess I should apologize for sharing this link with those of you who love t-shirts as much as I do.

The Curtis household now owns:

Who Watches the Empire?

Prydon Academy

Totem Totem Pole

Exterminated

Apple Pi

Han Shot First

The themes of the art vary so widely from day to day and week to week that it's hard to cover them all. They're most often on the nerdier side of the spectrum, rather than the artsy, but it's definitely worth a look if you're at all interested in pop culture.

The shirts themselves are really nice quality. Both Colt and I like our shirts on the longer side, and I find that the girly American Apparel shirts often run super small.

(Also, many of the shirts can be found at other sites online, so if you're scrolling through the gallery and see something you just can't live without, just give it a Google.)

  5. You're all welcome, but don't say I didn't warn you. It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the 1-day, $10 tees! :D
