Shop crush: Market Twenty Seven and the skinny b*tch top ( + GIVEAWAY! )
Few things make me happier than cute clothes or cute animals. Hilarity is one of them — especially when it’s of the irreverent, absurd, smart and / or sarcastic variety. The kind of humour that makes you open your mouth and go “HA!” or “BWAHAHAHA” or “YES.”
This tank top by Market Twenty Seven made me do all of those things:
Please excuse my post-popsicle mouth.
I first discovered Market Twenty Seven a few weeks ago when they retweeted something snarky I said about orange people.
Anyhoo, I fell in love with M27 before I even know what their shop sold based on their yomom.ma custom URL shortener (RIGHT!?!) and choice Twitter stylings:

“Like most boys and girls, the sisters behind Market Twenty Seven grew up in a home of severe dysfunction,” reads the shop’s about section. “As a result, these girls learnt not how to be decent, loving or kind, but rather they realized that love can be shown through many different channels, including, but not limited to: sarcasm, cruelty and (playfully) offensive remarks.”
I don’t find their cards / prints / apparel offensive, but maybe a pearl-clutching myaw-case would.
It matters not. These tops are adorably hilarious, not to mention soft. I have the skinny betch giraffe (see above, duh) and this cute little Polar Bear tank.
Fitting, as Sean and I are both up to a full Litre a day of Diet Coke… each. I know. It’s OOC. Can I go to rehab for Cola? It’s my very worst health habit. I’m straight up addicted. IT’S SO HOT DANG REFRESHING!!!!
I also have a big crop of their wicked cards, including this, my favourite one:
Like these cards as much as I do? Well guess what? You can ha dat.
Market Twenty Seven will be giving one LaurenOutLoud.com reader 5 cards of his or her own choice. I highly reccommend this be one of them because the kitty is cute (as long as, for the love of god, you don’t send it my way.)
To win, simply:
- Like Market Twenty Seven on Facebook
- Tell them which card you like most (mention that I sent you, too)
- Leave a comment here to let me know that you did and you’ll be qualifiedm, bang bang boom!
… That’s a Hanson song, isn’t it?
Nope. Nope, says Google. This.
I used to thing the least douchey-looking one was cute… I wonder what he’s up to these days?
No, j/k, I don’t. NO TIME FOR WONDERING! TIFF imminent. More (so much more) on that later.
