Heck fillies, sometimes you just have to make a bold statement and you have to make that statement in STYLE! Yes, you can be loud and proud without even uttering a single syllable if you let your clothing do the talking. With sassy slogan-strewn sweaters and t-shirts, the savviest sisters know that you can SLAY in the most fashionable of ways. So click this way and discover how the power of the written word can speak volumes…
Ok…I admit it – I am a word nerd! My love for language and its power to empower, evoke and elevate is a forever kind of romance for me. How combinations of these phonic delights can conjure up and convey the deepest of emotions through a series of shapes is incredible! A simple sentence, a string of words, can create love, hate, hope, terror, laughter and a plethora of possibilities in between…it’s just magical, right?
That’s why discovering Virgo Seven and its range of utter word porn-worthy sweatshirts and t-shirts is my holy grail! Their combination of tongue in cheek statements across the brand, coupled with fabulous quality and wearability makes them stand out from the crowd. When I slip on one of their tees or sweaters, I feel that I am dressing on two levels: 1) To please and empower myself with the statement I have chosen to wear and 2) my chosen outfit lets everyone else around me know what I am about, without having to say a word and so they can choose to engage with me accordingly! When I am wearing my “I Slay” jumper, to get all 90s old skool on yo ass…you better recognise!!!
As I get older, I am realising the importance of being in the”Self Love” club. Not in a two fingers up to everyone, big headed love affair with myself kind of way. But in a look after myself, “Know you worth. Add tax” vibe and one that I think everyone should have. So in-keeping with this, this “I Slay” jumper is totes approps. A gentle reminder to the world around me that I know that I can handle whatever dragons this life might send my way to slay…plus it’s as cosy as a mother trucker too! And…who doesn’t LOVE a bit of gold lettering to flash about? I ruddy love this jumper!
Yes, I have talked about why we should all channel our inner Beyonce on the blog before (click here to catch up). Whether you like her or not (not probably being the wrong answer), you have to love her ethos and her strong message to women not to put up with any kind of shiz, yet support your fellow ladies.
Women of the world – my message to you is this: You will not get anywhere in this life by unscrewing another women’s lightbulb in order to make YOU shine brighter! That being said, never let anyone dull your shine either. We all rise by working together. And let’s do it in Virgo Seven’s sassiest slogans!
