If you read my recent post, ‘My new favourite YouTube channel’, you’ll know that I’ve fell somewhat in love with the Dolan Twins over the past six months, and therefore when they announced they were releasing their own merchandise range, I was pretty damn excited. I ended up spending a small fortune on the collection but I can honestly say I absolutely love it. Who’d have thought I’d still be a fan girl aged 18?
The main thing from the collection I had my eye on and was desperate to get was the black hoodie, after spying Grayson wearing it in a fan photo. I feel like I literally live in hoodies at the minute, since England is absolutely freezing, even with the heating on full blast in the house. I also came to realise that all of the hoodies I currently own are the same colour (who needs six burgundy hoodies, me apparently?) so a black hoodie was very much needed.
I also picked up the purple ‘Tuesday’ t shirt, since I’m such a sucker for slogan tees and Tuesday just so happens to be my fave day of the week. I’m only hoping I can get away with wearing this top on other days of the week too, since I love it so much.
I have been in desperate need of a new phone case since spilling ink all over my beloved Coconut Lane one, so I took this opportunity to treat myself to the peace sign one from the twin’s collection too.
The thing I love most about the range is that it doesn’t scream !!!YOUTUBER MERCH!!! Don’t get me wrong, it’s very relevant to Ethan and Grayson themselves (I mean the hoodies literally have a silhouette of their faces on), but it doesn’t have their names plastered across it like merch from other YouTubers (that style is just not up my street). I feel like the items I got are pretty subtle and could be sold in high-street stores, which I why I think I can just about get away with wearing the merch as an eighteen-year-old (or at least that’s how I’m justifying it).
The merch is genuinely so comfy to wear and I’ve been pretty much living in it throughout December. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings for the twins and their merch line.
Thanks for reading,
