it was the wolf who ate the bird.




As most of you may know, there's been a huge internet obsession with wolf tees ever since collegehumor.com took notice of an Amazon review written by some random man about the "Three Wolf Moon" t-shirt. In the review, he said something about how it fits his girthy frame and makes all the woman at Wal-mart flock after him (even though he didn't own the shirt) which sparked the interest of some funny ones over at college humor, and the rest is history. It's the number one selling tee on Amazon and an internet phenomenon that you couldn't avoid even if you tried. Dwight even made a joke about it on an episode of The Office! My boyfriend got real into the whole thing last year (yes, he's an internet nerd), and even purchased a similar tee from Amazon shortly after.

When I saw Valencia's wolf tee over at Roll Up Your Sleeves I went a little crazy! I told her how much I like her shirt and all about our obsession, and being the sweet thing that she is, she offered to send me and Jake one for Christmas (since Jake already had one wolf tee in his mix of shirts, she got him a lion instead). It' now the best t-shirt in my closet and a weekly staple in my wardrobe which I get a ton of compliments on every time I wear it out.

Here's a short feature from ABC News about the ridiculous wolf tee infatuation.

Yayyyy,I'm so so happy you really love the wolf tee I sent you and that Jake like his too:)

Awesome with the skirt and that belt! Surely easy to match with any basics and that's what I love about it. Oh yes,up next we got to find our galaxy tees.

What person doesn't love a good wolf t-shirt to bring home the ladies. That is hilarious and I can't believe I never heard of that before. You pull the look off well, btw. Super cool.

I love wolf tees and sweaters...or basically anything to do with wolves. I love your oxfords too (:

Rosie said...

My boyfriend used to work for that company in that video! That is awesome! I just showed it to him and he knew one of the guys they are interviewing! Too funny, thanks for sharing, Starr.
P.S. I'm in MA, so if you're ever in the northeast, hit me up!

amanda said...

that t-shirt is so rad! whoa. my brother used to be obsessed with wolves when he was a teen. he's love to have one like that! it looks so great on you. and your eyes look amazing. they always do but i think the wolf's eyes are so striking that they bring yours out too. so cool. anyway, we didn't get any crazy weather last night (thankfully) but benton made the national news! can't believe there was a tornado down there! we only had a little bit of rain and now it's cold!

I've read that review before, and, I'm not going to lie, think of it every time I see a wolf tee. I have a Brand New t-shirt and it has a fox on it for their album cover of Daisy, and I always say I'm wearing a sweet wolf tee. Not really, but I can pretend.

I love wolf shirts, my boyfriend has the three wolf moon shirt and I steal it constantly, I love how you dressed it up!

lovelove, M.

Mel said...

I have heard about the wolf t-shirt phenomenon but never thought about getting one! However, the way you wore yours is so cute with that skirt, I'm thinking about getting one :) Or maybe another animal would be cool.

kate maggie said...

Ulrika said...

Valencia Lia said...

Re:Awwww,girl! You're too kind with your comments! You make me covet on what you wear for your outfits all the time too. Its true,no kidding:)

I want to hunt down a galaxy tee next! Wooohooo

Justice Pirate said...

Thing is, One of my brothers have owned many wolf shirts for over a decade. It is interesting how something so small can make an industry boom!

Mousevox Vintage said...

That first picture is so totally creepy and beautiful. Love it! xo

Lucy Marmalade said...

I am ALWAYS struck by how bright blue your eyes are. Good God they are striking and beautiful, as I'm sure you hear day in and day out. You are rockin' that wolf tee!

Amanda said...

How funny, I always wondered how the heck Dwight got that idea when he wore that shirt!

Sher said...

Oh yes, I'm equally intrigued by Valencia's wolf tee everytime she wears it on her blog! And so sweet of her to get you a wolf tee of your own! You look stunning in it, I adore the lil bird cage:)

xx

Clare said...

Yay for that wolf t-shirt!!

Christine said...

I might be lucky to have H&M, but driving 45-60 minutes over to the store isn't great. I make a monthly trip if that!

Hahaha, I love wolf tee's! Coming from the Southwest where the seniors wear them daily, it's too funny! I recently thrifted one and I've gotten many compliments on it!

Amanda said...

Well thank you!
And that's good to know...I've been reviewing cameras lately (i'm saving up for a new one) and I always love your photos so I was just wondering your opinion of your camera :]

Sara Lynn said...

wow I did not know about that at all! But it is really funny!! I think my mom would find that pretty awesome, she is obsessed with wolves.

I really like how you wore this, I have been really into T's with volume skirts lately. :)
