Item of the Week 036

photo(5)photo(2)Hi all. Today I wanted to feature the latest addition to my wardrobe which is my Madeline t shirt from Out of Print via Modcloth. I saw this piece on the Modcloth website a few weeks ago and it was instant love, not to mention the overwhelming number of memories that flooded back to me within moments. I adored Madeline during my childhood. I remember there were times where my life was entirely consumed by Madeline; my sister and I frequently watched it on tv and made up random games to do with the show. I remember being quite obsessed with drawing all twelve of the little girls in their uniforms. Lord Cuckoo Face and Miss Clavell...it's all too good! However, I do remember being frustrated by the fact that Madeline was always the centre of attention. Just because she might have been that little bit smaller than the other girls, I'm sure those other eleven girls were just as amazing in their own ways. Ok, that's just me and my negativity. Plus I was always a huge fan of Chloe...and Danielle and Nicole. Regardless, it is so fantastic to have a Madeline shirt which brings back so much nostaglia. I'm pretty sure I'll end up watching it again soon now I have the tshirt. I can't wait to style it. I've decided I can wear it with my pink jeans (yes me in jeans, it is rare). The little girls come too far down the shirt for any of my high waisted skirts to work which is unfortunate. Speaking of fashion I always loved the uniforms the girls wore on Madeline. One of these days I'm sure I'll create an outfit centered around that concept. Another fun aspects of this top is that I know two other people who have the same one. I posted about this Madeline tshirt on Facebook. Then an old friend from school said she'd bought it a couple of days earlier. Then I influenced yet another old friend to visit the Modcloth website and she bought it too. Matching tshirt buddies! It's also cool to discover new brands. I noticed that Out of Print has some pretty fun pieces on their website from The Hungry Caterpilla to The Great Gatsby. The long sleeve Madeline jumper looks so warm and cosy too. I heard they have the Madeline clothes for men too! I need to get my husband to agree with that!! Wouldn't matching outfit pictures just be the best?

That t-shirt is lovely! I had a bit of an obsession with that movie too, I had an even bigger obsession with A little princess though! I just loved it and wanted to go to a boarding school so bad.

I watched it recently and it made me cry so much. Haha.

It's an amazing shirt, and I love Madeleine too, I had the books and then was a big fan of the TV show, but, honestly I always wondered as an adult if Miss Clavell was a bit too involved in her children's care... from a teacher's point of view I mean. Hahaha... anyway, awesome shirt!
