Label Rebel Olivia designed these awesome hot mess express shirts for her friend’s bachelorette party! They were a hit!
Here is the story behind Olivia’s “hot mess express” design!
“All of the girls LOVED the ‘hot mess express’ shirts for my friend’s bachelorette in Boston, including the conductor herself! We got tons of compliments and comments everywhere we went and the best part was that ‘hot mess express’ kind of became the theme for the rest of the wedding festivities! We also wore the shirts while getting ready on the wedding day and just could not stop with the ‘choo-choos!’”
“I have been going through Customized Girl for almost five years; ordered gear for my sisters’ weddings and a few of my friends’ weddings including bachelorette shirts, gear for the bride as a shower gift, and even funny personalized honeymoon shirts for the bride and groom. I think it’s such a different and thoughtful gesture for the Maid of Honor to design t-shirts for the bridal party because she essentially sets the whole tone for the party. And, if others are anything like me, I am ALWAYS last minute with this stuff. But my procrastination as never been an issue because most of the time I have ordered custom gear, it has literally been a week or two before the event and I don’t even have to pay for rush shipping because I almost always get the gear in a few days!”

Label Rebels – Chicks Crushing Cancer

We said we wanted to put our customers in the spotlight and today is the beginning of that movement! Our customers create so many great designs for so many meaningful moments that it is time to share them with the rest of our community! When you create your original looks we consider you “label rebels” because you are not settling for apparel that others companies think you should wear. Instead you are creating fashion that is one-of-a kind on Customized Girl.
Our first label rebel is Amber of Chicks Crushing Cancer. Amber and her family are on a mission to raise funds for cancer research and the customer apparel she created played a big part in their fundraising efforts.
Here is the story behind her design.
“I have been using Customized girl for years to create and personalize shirts and gifts. The website is easy to use and the customer service is great! This year I decided to run my first marathon with the determiNation program to help raise funds for the American Cancer Society. I will be running the Chicago Marathon on 10/13/13. I was very intimidated asking people for money and didn’t know where to begin with fundraising. I had an idea to get t-shirts made for me and my four daughters. I started a facebook page called “Chicks Crushing Cancer,” which is the fundraising team I joined to raise money. My daughters and I started wearing the shirts in each of our races throughout the year and the girls would also wear these shirts to the races too! I always made sure to take lots of pictures of us and started posting them on my page. I never even had to ask people for donations, only to “like” my facebook page. Before I knew it, I had raised more than $1000 in a little over a month.
Today I have more than 200 “likes” on my page and over $2000 in donations. We recently had a great photographer take some pictures of us in our shirts and I was really happy with the turn out. Everyone has been so supportive and it feels good to be making such a difference. I lost my dad to cancer a couple years ago and hope that we can some day find a cure. I always tell people that EVERY donation counts and I try to get a $5 donation from everyone I see!
If anyone would like to help support me and my cause please like my facebook page and consider donating. [Chicks Crushing Cancer Facebook Page.]
All online donations need to be in by October 28, 2013. [Amber's fundraising page on the American Cancer Society's website.]
