Spot the Real: Sol Angeles Joie de Vivre Tee

Can you guess which t-shirt costs more?
We all love a good French phrase t-shirt, be it from J.Crew or Old Navy. Everything sounds better in French and looks better, too, when it's a graphic tee. But why pay $58 at to get that certain je ne sais quoi when you can spend $14.90 elsewhere? See if you can guess which of these two French phrase tops costs more, and click a link below to find out!


Old Navy always has the cutest graphic tees!

All right, alright...are you going to translate the expensive shirt for us Dianna? I know Life is a Joy but the other? FYI: oh baby, congrats on your pregnancy...what a wonderful event!

Ok I've consulted a French friend who tells me "Chouchou de la semaine" means loosely, "favorite of the week" (chouchou mean honey, sweetie, or favorite one) and de la semaine is "of the week" - and of course Joie de vivre is "joy of living." Guess one should know what they're wearing! ;-)

They're both super cute but I like the Anthropolgie one this time around!

They both are looking good. I think that the left one is the more expensive. Let us see? :-)

Buzzfeed had a funny posting on this where they had French speakers translate these shirts as well as others
