Who said only geeks wear ties?

Though I keep telling Karen over at the Rocking Pony that she needs to send Connor a pony for review she keeps insisting on sending us adorable shirts instead. *ahem*. Heh, seriously enough if it came down to it and I had to choose a favorite design from the Rocking Pony etsy shop it would be nearly impossible. Her tee shirt designs, especially, are exactly the sort of thing we look for in a great product. Unusual, fun, well made, and most importantly really and truely made with love. Connor got a Croc tee to review awhile back and I cannot help to admire it hanging in the closet. It looks a bit like a mini art quilt than a shirt and let me tell you it turns heads. So when Karen signed up to be included in our birthday event this year I was really honored.

Karen suggested we get a birthday tee for the event but I already had my heart completely set on a tee that I have been wanting for some time and she was more than happy to help us. The monster tee and the business as usual tee has been calling our names for some time so imagine my glee when the business as usual tee arrived in our mailbox. Connor is getting to that age now where getting him to wear well pressed shirts for a formal event is not only nearly impossible as it is pointless as even if you do convince him to wear it the odds are he will have it dirty before you even step out the door. Rocking Pony's business as usual tee conbined the comfortable feel of a tee shirt with the look of a dress shirt. Actually half the reason we love it so much is the fact that it is really sort of rocker to wear a tie with a tee shirt much less a tie sewn into a tee shirt. I can not even tell you how rediculously cute this tee looks with a pair of jeans or even just running around the house with a pull up. I keep waiting for Connor to pull out a briefcase and a cell phone and run out the door.

What really surprised me is the fact that the "tie" is a real tie. Cut and sewn very securely to the shirt. Connor really likes just running his fingers down the tie as its a totally diffrent texture than the rest of the shirt. All the little details really is what makes Rocking Pony so unusual and special. I can also tell you from experience and washing our Croc shirt that all of the sewn on aspects of the Rocking Pony shirts are very well sewn around the edges so no fear that it will unravel if you wash it at all. Actually as dirty as Connor gets if it didn't hold up well in the wash it would be a lost cause, and I'm glad to say that our Rocking Pony shirts have held up to all the damage they have taken around here with no problems.

I really like the "Chocolate Chip Is My Favorite" shirt, but I would want a different color - Gray is blah.
