Revenge tee: Connected Generation*

A couple of weeks ago, I was made aware of the rather lovely premise behind Connection Generation. They sell t-shirts in a range of designs (more and more are being added to the site by the day) and if you're feeling creative you can even design your own and upload it to be printed on a tee.

Shirts cost £25 and £5 of every sale goes to help fund a project - all of the projects supported by Connected Generation are charities which benefit children, either locally or internationally.

So, you choose a t-shirt design, choose a story to support and then place your order. Even after your shirt arrives, you'll be supplied with updates so that you can see how the project you supported is going.

My tee arrived a couple of days after placing the order and it's great. Really good quality, my usual fear about white tees being a little see-through were not a problem here and the fit is great. And the design? I absolutely love it. It's a lyric from one of the designer's songs. I love the illustration - a perfect mix of slightly gothic, Tim Burton-y darkness and yet the girl also reminds me of Nadine from Twin Peaks.

As I don't ever wear jeans or trousers, I was a little unsure how to style it, but then the sun was shining and I had about ten minutes notice to get ready for a picnic, so I threw something together which I thought would be suitable.

Armed with wedge trainers (the most practical picnicking heels I could get away with for our local National Trust grounds), a huge handbag to throw just about anything into, and a straw hat ostensibly to protect me from the sun (in reality to hide the fact that my hair was a mess, as usual) I was ready on time. 

How would you style up a tee from Connected Generation? Well, you needen't imagine it; they've offered one reader the chance to win a t-shirt of their choice from the site. You can enter below. The giveaway closes on 29th May and a winner will be picked at random from all eligible entries. The giveaway is only open to followers of t*rexes and tiaras.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing and the opportunity of a giveaway Char! I saw Karen blogging about Connected Generation so I have heard of them and their noble charity project. It's great to see that brands raise awareness and try to actively contribute to sustainability and also give something back. Hope you're well and we'll speak soon. Have a fantastic bank holiday weekend xxxx

    PS: Got a giveaway, too so if you fancy some cake just come over :)))
