Fashion Fridays: Holey Tees and What I'm Wearing

Don't forget to enter the Freckled Bug giveaway (ends Tuesday, August 17th at midnight) and submit your button designs for the contest!  And head on over to Facebook to enter the Facebook fan giveaway!

My clothes went through a phase about a year ago where about 50% (well, maybe not quite 50%) of my tees would get all holey at the bottom, dead center.  Most after only being worn ONCE!  It was infuriating.  I still don't know what caused it because my tees since are hole-free.  And I've got some shirts that I've had since I got married that are hole-free, too.  It's a mystery that I don't think will ever be solved.  It almost makes me wonder if some tiny animal was living in my drawer and chewing them up at night.  But whatever it was, it left me with a bunch of perfectly good shirts-well, perfectly good minus the hole at the bottom.  So now I have to come up with clever ways to camouflage my holey tees without it being obvious that I'm covering something up.

Some of them aren't even small holes!

This one is kind of hard to see, but there's a bunch of little holes and I only wore this shirt 5 times!  5 times is not a lot!

This one started out small enough that I could just mend it, but then it grew and multiplied and became a big mess.

My stack of tees in need of repair.  Each one of these has mystery holes.
  I've managed to come up with solutions for each and will be showing you my progress as I get each one "fixed."

And, as promised, here's a look at one of my H&M pieces:

My brother-in-law graciously snapped this pic for me before we went to run our errands today.  What I've got on:
Plaid Button Up Top: H&M-I love their button-ups because, as a woman with a bigger bust, I have the hardest time finding shirts that fit me across the chest and still have that tailored look and theirs fit me all over!
Dark skinny jeans: thrifted American Eagle
Shades: mark.


  1. I have had the same issues with tshirts. Someone said once, it is from getting them wet and leaning, like when you are at the sink washing dishes??? I have not been good about wearing an apron, maybe that would help!

  2. One of my most favorite t-shirts has holes like this. It's so disappointing! I can't wait to see how you fix these!

  3. I wonder if you have a cat...I have holes in my tshirts like that too and I always blame it on my cat! I am a new follower, coming over from Along for the ride! Great blog!

  4. maybe its moth holes.
    I had them as well. I bought camphor blocks because I couldnt work out how the holes got into my brand new tees.


I ♥ your comments! They make my day :)
