Apparel for the Youf : Lazy Oaf

I'm a t-shirt girl at heart. Throw me a pretty frock and the chances are I'll cover half of it up. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon Lazy Oaf, a collection of the coolest t-shirts, jumpers and dresses I've seen in a long time. Think pared-down early David & Goliath stuff, minus the irritating ubiquity. Never mind that I've fallen in love with their Valentines' Cards (please someone buy me the "You are the Ken to my Deirdre" card), I'll take the lot, thanks.

I love the 80's neon meets 90's grunge appeal. I'd wear them all to bed, to the shops, out in town, generally anywhere. Especially love the pizza jumper, much more interesting than your standard Topshop take on the food trend. Wear them with dirty hair, yesterday's skinny jeans and pile on the jewellery.

Which one is your favourite? Would  you dress these up or down? xox

[Edit : Ok, so from the comments so far I'm presuming that I'm late to discover Lazy Oaf. Is this another brand who has yet to grace the North with their presence? I know there's online, but still... FML, as the cool kids say.]

  2. I'm a massive fan on Lazy Oaf and have been for a fair few years now. Their designs have really got better over time. I recently popped into their Fouberts Place store in London and purchased a necklace. I also tried on the gorgeous Minnie skirt. Which is now sold out :(
