There’s one thing my mom will begrudgingly tell you about me: My clothing style has always been a little different. I drove her nuts growing up because all I ever wanted was thrifted T-shirts. I was that teen that refused to be mainstream…and I wonder why my girls are difficult with clothing – ha!
While becoming a mom has tamed my style a tiny bit, I still get giddy when I find clothing companies that match my taste for uniqueness, whether it’s colorful, bold prints, or vintage-inspired styles.
Enter Blue Platypus Clothing. This company has been on my radar for awhile thanks to our mutual friend and photographer Deanna Spivey. I instantly fell in love with the pieces I saw, which were whimsical, colorful, and FUN.
I mean, how cute are these styles?
I swear I had the biggest smile on my face looking through all the options on their website.
Boatnecks, big buttons, tulip sleeves, wrap dresses…Too much cute to name. Best of all? Everything is made with comfort in mind. That means the world to this mama!
I was ecstatic to learn all of their designs are created in Brighton, Michigan, while the clothing is produced in Los Angeles. It feels great to purchase clothes made in the U.S.A. since that seems to be a rarity these days.
Sizing is contemporary, which means if you are usually a medium or a large, that’s what size you should buy. Such a relief when buying online!
I love the tunics they have — perfect for wearing as a dress or paired with leggings. How fun is this one with grey foxes on it?!
They also have a great selection of wrap dresses, which are flattering for ALL figures. This wrap dress makes me feel so happy, and I love how soft it is. I can’t wait to wear it this summer for special events.
ABOUT BLUE PLATYPUS CLOTHING
Straight from the owners: “We are mid-century modernists at heart, although we find inspiration in various places. Our biggest inspiration is probably vintage furniture and clothing. Prints, patterns, and colors from different eras play a huge role in our designs. Clean geometric as well as fluid organic shapes, e.g. silhouettes of heads, are featured in our designs. We believe that the juxtaposition of diverse elements in surprising ways is essential to the evolution of design. We create surface interest and create a cornucopia of flavors. We also like to have prints that are interesting from afar, and surprising when scrutinized closely.”
Pretty great, right? When you wear Blue Platypus Clothing, it’s like you are a walking work of art.
