While working to build a Eco-friendly and long-lasting capsule wardrobe I have managed to find some awesome brands while shopping around, but I discovered Blue Platypus brand by complete accident while visiting a friend in Jacksonville Florida.

Blue Platypus: Discovering the Brand

While shopping around at The Avenues Mall, my bestie insisted we visit a shop called Subculture Corsets & Clothing’s pop-up shop. (Another shop that I highly recommend visiting if you ever have the chance!) Admittedly, I during my visit I didn’t feel as though I was in the intended weight range (or mindset) to really try a lot of their amazing clothes at the time, but one of the helpful assistants brought me this amazing shirt to try on.

Blue Platypus: Great Materials & Design

I was shocked at the fit and how soft the material was. The $40 price tag also alarmed me a bit, but as I inspected the seams and the material I found that the construction of the shirt was absolutely top notch. The tailoring was also obviously done with extreme care – the gentle tapering in hit my natural waist perfectly, and the overall length of the shirt hit just below my hips to create a perfect break that created an overall slimming silhouette!

Made with Love in the United States

Blue Platypus hosts their entire production process in the United States. From design creation to construction of their awesome shirts and dresses, they manage to keep their clothes within a reasonable price range. The clothes that I have purchased from them have held up through the washing machine and never faded, and the designs have never chipped or separated from the material. If you are looking to build a wardrobe that will withstand the test of time, I could not recommend a brand with greater joy.

Not to mention that if you are looking for a unique and slightly vintage look, you won’t be disappointed!
