Cute, Comfy, and for a Cause? All The Above! (Literally).

Me and MT #Virgos

Mother Theresa and I share the same birthday. When I saw All The Above’s clothing collection featuring a tee inspired by one of her famous quotes, “Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls” I jumped at the chance to rock my fellow Virgo’s mantra. Embracing fashion a form of self-expression thrills me; I often employ my clothing as a reminder to be confident.

How does it fit? What does it mean?

I ordered a small -I’m 5’2” with athletic curves and it just fit. Like my favorite yoga pants, this 100% cotton shirt will never go in the dryer! Designer Brandi Galluzi created the dream-catcher like design with Origami cranes representing souls to catch joy. Scripty font reveals the words “catch souls”. Imprinted on the inside of the tag-less shirt is Mother Theresa’s quote, so you will always remember the meaning.


With a mission of “Be Inspired”, All The Above is dedicated to creating high quality, stylishly inspired clothing that fosters self-expression. I have to agree with Team ATA when they say, “we believe that fashion is one of the truest outlets for expressing oneself” and I can definitely get behind their goal to deliver fashion with a deeper meaning.


ATA Gives

In addition to the soft and cool hidden meaning on your newest article of clothing, you get to select a charity through the ATA Gives program in which 10% of the proceeds will be donated to at checkout. What’s important to you? What’s important to your Dad? (yup they also have Men’s apparel and accessories) If you know what they are passionate about then you have the perfect Father’s Day or Birthday gift. There are wonderful causes to choose from amongst the organizations benefitting Children, Public Service, Human Rights, and Animal Rights.


So you have an idea…

T-shirt prices range from $19.99-$37.99 and get this, if there is a vision you wish they would take into consideration, you can let them know on Facebook and Twitter @ataclothing. The inspirational concepts come from their fans (primarily via Facebook) and ATA artists turn the concepts into designs that reflect positive, empowering messages. These inspirations come from song lyrics, religious text, world leaders, etc. Win-win.

What brilliance would you like to see fashioned into new pieces for your wardrobe?
