Posh Passé - Home of the Triple Threat Tees

I first learned about the Chicago based clothing line Posh Passé in June when the streets were buzzing about the official launch party. Unfortunately, I couldn't attend but visited the website,, where I discovered that Posh Passé was a line of t-shirts. T-shirts are not usually synonymous with chic but there was something unique about this line. Although they appeared to be your average, everyday screen tees, the styling of the shirts in the photos were so funky! I was immediately intrigued.

Fast forward one month to July>>>>
I am at the Indie Designer Market (which is fabulous, by the way) and spot this super chic woman sporting a cute white tee, some fabulous white wide-leg pants and a funky blonde hairdo. As I approach her, I realize that she is Crystal Crayton, the owner of Posh Passé!

This is my first time viewing the shirts in person and I'm totally blown away by how soft they feel. Crystal, who is wearing what I now see is her "Chic Chick" shirt, mentions that her t-shirts are handmade using pima cotton and deemed as "triple-threats". The shirts are soft enough that one can wear it as normal with an outfit, inside the house as loungewear OR around the neck as a scarf. Seeing as that I couldn't stop touching the shirt due to being mesmerized with its softness, I could SO visualize it being worn all 3 ways.

Also on display were some limited edition Poshe Passé shirts that Crystal recently designed for a fashion show. They are on sale for $89 until the end of August. The "Vintage Chick" limited edition shirt (shown above) - that I'm already preparing myself to purchase at this month's market - features a black lace back while the "Chic Chick" limited edition shirt (shown below) features a white organza back. These designs are truly unique and are a fashionable way to flip an otherwise typical t-shirt.

I'm thinking the "Vintage Chick" tee with skinny leather pants and studded heels like these OR the "Chic Chick" tee with a short, full denim skirt and caged booties like these. Fun, Fun, Fun!

Needless to say, I'm officially in love with Posh Passé and all it has to offer. The fact that Crystal is such a cool individual is just icing on the cake. You can check out the entire line at the Posh Passé online shop or in person at this month's Indie Designer Market (click here for more details).

And tell her that ChiTown Fashionista sent ya!
