Slogan Sweatshirt with a Difference

While I love slogan sweatshirts on other people, I never wear them myself...until now. The heavier sweatshirt material and the tight waistband always look unflattering on my body shape so the couple of times I've bought them, I never ended up actually wearing them apart from as loungewear. Equally, the messages many slogan sweats have written on them don't always sit right with me. 

So I'm delighted to have come across FWP by Rae, completely by chance and I wore the Premier Cru sweatshirt yesterday for the first time and absolutely loved it.
Black Coat - preloved from DejaVu - Gerard Darel
Jeans - KOI from TK Maxx (old)
Star Trainers - Topshop - past season - similar here
Bag - Yoshi - past season (gifted)

I say by chance because I actually bought mine from an online friend as a preloved item, rather than from the company directly. I had been vaguely aware of other people I follow on Instagram wearing the brand but hadn't really considered looking at them because I assumed they would be the usual unflattering sweatshirt shape on me.

Rachel who was selling it, mentioned that it was a generous fit (too big on her) and nice and soft so I thought why not and I was delighted when it arrived because it's nothing like a sweatshirt fabric. It's a gorgeous soft lightweight material which reminds me of Pyjamas actually...and I mean that in the most positive way. It hangs beautifully and can even be tucked in.
It does come up big - I'm wearing the M and it's more like a 12 on me but I like that as I want to wear it with skinnies. And if Premier Cru isn't your cup of tea (or wine), there are a couple of different slogans, all referencing wine with a french twist. Not glamourising drinking or anything - just very classy and French. And who doesn't want to look classy and French? Especially while standing under the Tates Avenue bridge in front of a badly graffitied wall...

Hope your weekend has been treating you well. I've mostly spent it eating bad food and driving the mum taxi. Though I did go out with the Freedom runners this morning for the second time. Go check out Holly's Instagram if you're local. It's the most wonderful outdoor workout on a Sunday morning, suitable for all levels of fitness. Completely exhilarating...and fully legitimises an afternoon of eating more food...in my case, at my sister in law's - huge yay to not having to make Sunday dinner today.

Have a good one - back soon!
