Old Navy Graphic Tees & Tanks

I haven’t looked at Old Navy in what feels like ages. They traditionally haven’t had anything super cute that I “must have” the way I often feel with other brands like J.Crew. However, I accidentally clicked on the Old Navy tab while browsing Banana Republic and “accidentally” saw they currently have a bunch of pretty cool graphic tees and tanks. Tees with “cool” sayings like the parodied “Homies” tee have been all the rage lately, so not surprising Old Navy decided to jump in, but what is surprising is that out of the countless graphic tees and sayings I’ve seen, theirs are actually pretty witty (as opposed to corny or teeny-bopperish) and wearable. Here are some of my picks. Snag ’em now with the 25% off sale currently on site!

Old Navy “Sleep is My Cardio” Slub-Knit Tank

Old Navy Sleep is My Cardio Slub-Knit Tank

Lol, “Sleep is my cardio.” I chuckled to myself when I saw this. I’ve been eyeing the ubiquitous “Shopping is my cardio” tee for the longest time, thinking it was pretty witty. This one is even funnier, because it’s just so lazy-bumish.

Old Navy Sleep is My Cardio Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

It’s technically a sleep/lounge tank, but I’d totally wear this out. Pair with a pair of denim shorts and you’re good to go for a casual day out. Get yours here for just $12.94. If you’re so inclined, and I sure am, pick up the other also cute versions below.

Old Navy #Snooze Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

Old Navy #Lazydays Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

Old Navy #Lazydays Graphic Slub-Knit Tank

PS. Slub knit has been my fav material since I discovered it a few years ago with J.Crew basics. Super comfortable, drapey, and flattering. Get either the #Snooze & #Lazydays tanks here for $12.94.

Old Navy “Take Me Away” Vacation-Graphic Tee

Old Navy Take Me Away Vacation-Graphic Tee

This “Take Me Away” slub-knit tee reminds me of something Madewell or J.Crew would produce. I can imagine dressing this up with a super cute full skirt or paring it down with just shorts and flip flops for the beach. The typography is simple but chic. Currently on sale for just $11, get this steal here.

Old Navy “Fabulous” Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Old Navy Fabulous Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Another “fabulous” tee that I could see coming out of Madewell or J.Crew. Again, this will pair very well with a girly full skirt and heels or just shorts and sandals for the beach. Love the simple typography on these. Get yours here for $14.94. Same goes for my last pick, which also got a chuckle out of me when I first saw it.

Old Navy “Holy Chic” Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Old Navy Holy Chic Graphic Slub-Knit Tee

Heehee. Get yours here for $14.94.

7 Most Popular Bags in Shanghai, China

Took a quick trip to Shanghai and was really surprised by how many designer bags I saw on the street. I knew the luxury market was skyrocketing in China, but I had no idea almost every other person would be carrying a designer bag, both real and fake. I was also somewhat surprised by the specific styles that were taking off there; some aren’t nearly as popular in the US.

Longchamp Le Pliage Large Shoulder Tote


The Longchamp Le Pliage Tote has taken off all over the world and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a true workhorse bag, but also very classy and effortless. When you don this bag, it seems to say you know and care about fashion, but not obsessively. You’re down-to-earth but are put-together. All that comes with the low price tag of just $145. Really a steal. If you haven’t gotten this bag yet, now is your chance here for $145.

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel Bag

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel Bag Black

I was really surprised about this being so extremely popular in China, considering I haven’t seen it that much in the US. I know it’s popular here, but not so popular that one in 10 girls carry it and most colors are sold out across all the stores…that’s a different level of insane obsession. The most popular color is Black. Very cool and chic. Also available in a range of colors, from Buff to Violet to Taupe. So many choices, so little time. Get the Black one here.

Michael Kors Selma Satchel Tote Bag

Michael Kors Selma Satchel Tote

The Michael Kors Selma Satchel has really taken off in China, in all sizes. Surprising considering it wasn’t even on my radar. However, now that I’ve seen it in real life on so many gorgeous girls, I can definitely see the appeal. It’s minimalist, great sturdy and practically rainproof leather, is the perfect size to carry around all your junk all day but isn’t massively large and heavy, and the gold logo adds the perfect subtle touch of glam. Black, red, and cognac were the most popular colors. Get yours here for $358.

There were a lot of people with the Michael Kors Mini Selma as well, which I didn’t even realize existed. It’s not only adorable because it’s mini-sized, but it’s even more functional because it’s super light and able to be carried crossbody. Hooray! A few people had it in an awesome neon yellow color, which can stand out from a mile away and certainly drew all the attention.

Michael Kors Mini Selma Crossbody Bag

I think the neon yellow color is pretty much sold out, or at least I can’t find it. Have no fear though, many other colors are available, particularly my favorite – cognac! Get yours here for only $178.

MCM Stark Backpack

MCM Stark Backpack

I’ve never even heard of the brand MCM before the trip, but it was literally everywhere in Shanghai. Everywhere. All variations and styles. I think it has something to do with J-Pop or K-Pop stars being seen with these, and the phenomenon is making its way west. Since they’re not leather (they’re coated canvas), these backpacks are relatively cheap, ranging between $600-$800 for most of the normal styles, sometimes depending on how many studs are on the bag. If you’re into this style, get yours here.

Prada Saffiano Lux Tote

Prada Saffiano Lux Tote

The Prada Saffiano Lux Tote has been so popular in China that it’s widely known as one of the most faked bags of all time. To the point where people are hesitant to buy it because it’s so ubiquitous on the street. Well, it’s so popular for a reason; it’s the epitome of a Prada classic. Classy, elegant, understated, and very practical. If you like the style, there are many colors and size variations to try. Check out your color options here at Saks, all priced at $2200.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Neverfull Tote


Yes, just as in US, the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote is also everywhere in China. Though many people are increasingly gravitating away from the loudness of the LV monogram, significantly more people still love it. The Neverfull Tote is one of the cheaper options in the LV line, and the bag is extremely practical and functional. A true workhorse. Get yours here from Louis Vuitton (MM size) for $1,260.

Louis Vuitton Alma BB

Louis Vuitton Alma BB

Love for the Louis Vuitton Alma BB is understandable. Hell, I’m even kind of obsessed with it. It can be handheld or just slung over you as a crossbody bag, when you can barely even feel it’s there. Perfect for all those petite girls out there, hence probably why it’s so popular in China. It’s also just adorable, like all things that are miniature versions of normal things. Also comes in a number of gorgeous colors, giving them a I-want-to-collect-them-all quality. Comes also in a variety of leathers / canvas, from Epi to Monogram Canvas, and even Ostrich leather. My favorite is definitely the Vernis, but in Epi it’s just as indestructible practically, so either way it’s a highly functional yet super adorable bag. Get the Vernis here from Louis Vuitton for $1,820.

Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag in Brandy

Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag is the LV Noe style I never knew I wanted. Actually, I never liked the bucket “Noe” style until recently. I always thought the LV monogram version looked a little too mature, but now that Mansur Gavriel has done a whole new fresh take on this style, I’m realizing this style is definitely worth a second look. It’s so unique, a little hipster bohemian and casual, but definitely still elegant at the same time. Especially in Brandy. Drool.

Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag in Brandy

Like all of Mansur Gavriel bags, you can choose the color of the lining. As with the Mansur Gavriel Leather Tote, I think the best lining color for Brandy is still raw. Something about taking a large piece of high-quality cognac leather and making into one seamless bag just gives me the fuzzies.

Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag in Brandy

The Bucket Bag comes in two different sizes, Mini or Regular. They’re not that different in size, so you really can’t go wrong with either one. Given I’m relatively tall at 5’6, I may opt for the Large size. Looks beautiful in real life. It can make the most casual outfit look well put-together, and actually is an awesome neutral that will match pretty much anything. This Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag comes in 8 different colors, all in either Mini or Regular size. Get the Regular here for $495.
