Amp Your Aura (and Karma) in Dean Russo Jewel Tone Tees From The #MountainArtwear + Giveaway!

The Mountain Dean Russo Rescue tee

A good day = Picking up a new foster kitten from the Richmond SPCA wearing my Dean Russo The Rescue Collection kitty t-shirt from The Mountain
®. No makeup required.

(Rescue cats are my passion, y'all.)

So today, y'all, I'm talking about The Mountain clothing company. More specifically, The Mountain's Dean Russo Rescue Collection of pet t-shirts - in all their bold, benevolent, jewel-toned beauty. I mean, do you see that shirt I have on?!

Wait, look at it up close...

Note: I modeled it backwards so you could enlarge the image without my feeling cheap. Though, it looks pretty good backwards, trust me, the tee is much more becoming facing forwards. 


And, can you see that wonderful earthy effect in the dye? Not only is there interest in the t-shirt fabric itself, but due to a unique printing process, after one wash, I can't feel a difference in the cat design and the rest of the shirt. The 100% preshrunk cotton fabric is substantial (not wafer thin, requiring a second layer), but soft and non-constricting. I'm wearing an adult size SMALL (unisex). I'm also 5' 8+" and slightly fluffy. The small fits me perfectly when paired with relaxed-fitting denim. If you are smaller than I (thin/petite), you'll get a looser fitting top (would look great with skinny jeans/leggings), or you might try a kids' size XL

Have I mentioned before that this precise shade of green is my favorite color? It is.

The Mountain tees amp your aura
This is what it looks like (using a special, neuro-light-splitting-electromagnetic camera lens) when one's aura is amped while wearing a The Mountain t-shirt. #notreally #theauracomesfromwithin #thispiciscoolthough

And that I love wearing jewel tones* and t-shirts? Especially cat and dog and the occasional farm animal (oh, yes, I ordered it) t-shirts?

Made from environmentally friendly fabrics and dyes, in the USA t-shirts?

Maddox could be the model for this tee, don't you think? Check out his HUGE polydactyl mitts!  

And pet-loving artists who put their dog, cat and other animal art on these t-shirts?

One more, with a derp face. ☺ Gosh, I love my old man!

And animal-loving companies that sell these artists' artwear and then turn around and donate part of the proceeds to animal welfare organizations, like the awesome no-kill Best Friends Animal Society?

Well, you do now! And guess what? The Mountain company and its t-shirts fit ALL those criteria! Yay! 

* "Neons can make you sallow. Pastels can make you look wan and gray. But jewel tones - from smoky quartz to pale citrine - make anyone look glowy."

Y'all, it's not just me; these Dean Russo shirts will make you look positively GLOWY (even on the INSIDE, because your purchase is helping animals, hence the "amping of your aura"), and you don't even have to have a baby 9 months later! Score!

"Attention, please. Kooky selfie-taking pet lady in produce. Use caution when approaching."

Truth: I walked a circle around meat and produce about 5 times for this 6 seconds of video. AND, a manager with a clipboard scooted in beside me in the salad section, pretending to look at something in the case (when she was really trying to assess whether I was a nut case), before saying "How are you, today?" and strolling off.  I guess they thought I was using my camera to spy for a competitor. Haha, if they only knew...☺

P.S. Remember that "boxed" foster kitten I had in the first image? Yes, well, this is what came out of the box when I got home...

    1. Yes, it is! I ordered a shirt with a big donkey head on it and another Russo shirt with a happy pittie. If I was loaded in dough, I might get the sleep shirt with the skunk on it, just to bug my family. ;)

    1. That blue dog is love shirt is SO pretty! I don't know if I've seen the yorkie one yet. :) Sorry about the Twitter handle; if you entered something, you'll still get the entry credit, I'm sure.

  5. I love your shirt! And all of the shirts really. I was thinking about trying a kids XL for myself, since I wished it fit more like yours does. I love your glowing aura picture! lol ;)

    1. Well, for future reference, try the kids XL (I used to be able to do that back in the day when I exercised). :) I love the yellow shirt you picked for your post, by the way; if I'd gone dog, that would've probably been the one. Oh, and I don't know what the heck we were doing in that glowing photo (the dogs were looking at me like I was glowing, though, weren't they). :D PicMonkey is the bomb!
