Tomorrow marks the launch of Abandon Ship Apparel‘s pink slimer birthday tshirt, for their third Birthday surprisingly enough! Looking back through previous products you can see how far the brand has come, and you can understand why they have a loyal and ever growing customer base. In my opinion this is one of the best designs they’ve ever done, pink slime?…clearly a winner! When I got asked to style it I jumped at the chance, plus it meant that I got a tshirt before the release 🙂
All I can think of when I look at it is Ghost Busters…
Surprisingly the tshirt is really easy to style, wearing it with highwaisted jeans and a shirt underneath gives a little rockabilly nod. A casual coat and creepers make this a perfect day outfit. The detail on the tshirt is spectacular and the contrast with a white collar just makes it stand out more. I would also recommend popping some victory rolls in, because well you can’t go wrong with a wee vintage hairdo!

There’s something cleansing about wearing white, even just a little mixed into an outfit can lift the whole look. The colour pop boots lift the blue in the tshirt and the leopard jacket creates a nice contrast of colour.Boots – AX ParisBag – ZaraJacket – Pull & Bear
Lately I’ve been loving clashing prints, a check jumpsuit over the slime tshirt just seemed like the most subtle choice…for good measure I thew in a geographic bag from Lunaamani. Whenever I wear a jumpsuit I pretty much turn into a big kid, the combination of this, my docs and the tshirt print make me just want to go outside and stomp about.

The Birthday Tshirt will launch tomorrow at 5pm in their Glasgow store and 6pm online. Last year their Birthday Tshirt sold out in just three hours! There will also be awesome goodybags for the first 10 customers to spend over 100 online and in store.
There is also a little in store party tomorrow night, all details here.
A Glasgow pop up store has been long over due from the boys at Abandon Ship Apparel, and after months of looking for the ‘right’ property an industrial style unit became available in the Iconic Princes Square. The store reflects the brands ethos perfectly. The lifestyle section is where you could loose yourself for an hour or two sitting on the couch chatting whilst your other half shops or having a go on the vintage arcade game and get pretty angry when pac man doesnt do what hes supposed to!
The visuals of the store are very clean and the taxidermy and paintings add a lice homely feel to the space.
The Launch party was a chance to showcase some new designs, treat our customers and generally have a bit of fun…which we love doing!
Hope to see you all at the next one <3
