As you know I always like to add one or two statement pieces to my outfit to make them stand out. And what better way to make a statement than with a “statement” tee? I love how graphic tees are used to express our emotions and feelings and wear them on our sleeves (literally). Not only can they be witty and funny, they really make a statement on their own. State of Grace is a brand that I discovered that carries a great selection of tees, tanks, and accessories with fun, urban sayings. One of my favorites is “Bye Felicia.”
To be honest, when I first heard this saying, I didn’t know what it meant. Thanks to my trusty Urban Dictionary (one I rely on to keep me hip), I found out that it meant. So for those of you who don’t know what “Bye Felicia” means, allow me to educate you.
The Urban Dictionary states: When someone says that they’re leaving and you could really give two s***s less that they are. Their name then becomes “Felicia”, a random b***h that nobody is sad to see go. They’re real name becomes irrelevant because nobody cares what it really is. Instead, they now are “Felicia”. Bye Felicia” is a memorable quote from the 1995 comedy film Friday which is often used online as a dismissive farewell.
While I am no mean girl (I left that back in high school), I can appreciate the humor in this saying and actually picked this shirt for the muscle tank cut more than anything else. The tank itself is super soft and goes well with just about anything. I like pairing graphic tees with cut off shorts for a more casual look, but I also love mixing styles and pairing a tee with a skirt for a more street chic look. Since the statement “Bye Felicia” is more of a cool girl saying, I decided to go with a leather skirt and faux fur to add to the sass of the tee.
While graphic tees are fantastic to wear to spell out your mood, I also enjoy entertaining sayings on my accessories as well. I found this amusing water bottle from State of Grace which says, “”WATER, because wine isn’t acceptable at 9AM.” Isn’t that the truth?
State of Grace has many clever statement tops and accessories that can be used to display your mood. It is a great place to shop for yourself and for unique gifts. Definitely check them out for your chic and funny friend!

Hi Rachel, thank you so much! You have great style yourself babe!
Your pictures are always on point! I loved how in-depth you explained “Bye Felicia” in your blog post – now I feel well-educated on the saying, heh. I, too, didn’t know what it meant at first and Urban Dictionary is seriously a lifesaver for all new, trendy slang words these days, haha! Love how you paired the fur coat with this edgy look. Killin’ it! 🙂

Your choice of tshirt is so funny, but I love how you styled it! I’m normally not a fan of graphic tees either, but I do think there’s a way to wear them in a stylish outfit like you did!
Great pictures and such an amazing tee. Well styled as usual. I’m loving the faux fur.
OMG I am obsessed with your studded skirt! I totally agree that a nice statement tee can really enhance a look when worn the right way. I personally like simple statement tees like the one you have (nothing overly distracting or obnoxious). I’ll bet that fur jacket is keeping you nice and warm on this gloomy day! <3 Have a good one hun 🙂 xo, sharon
Beautiful per usual. Loving that faux fur jacket – and that tee is perfect!
Thank you Lindsey. The tee makes a statement and the fur coat announces its arrival. =)

Graphic tees are great to wear with just about anything and can be dressed up or down which is why I love them. You do them so well too!
i love statement tees! This is such a cool way to style them up! I always wear mine to the gym as it fits my attitude when I train. But I’m definitely going to try and style one upand see how I feel in it 🙂
That is such a good idea, to help you get pumped up for working out too. Love that they are so versatile and can be worn with anything!
I love how casual this graphic tee is but it presents a bold statement! You did an amazing job at styling it up 🙂 love how fierce it looks with that studded skirt!
Thank you Jenn. Graphic tees are so fun because they can totally spell out our mood (literally) without us having to say a word. =)

You would look amazing in this skirt Lauren!
I love the entire outfit. Statement tee’s can really make or break an outfit, this one was totally right tho!
Hi Sofia, they totally can and I love seeing all the fun sayings or logos on them!
I used to love statement tees so much as a teenager! I remember going to little stores around Asia trying to find cute sayings – always standard white text on black or vise versa! I think I might just get one from the store you linked. Great find!
Totally right, Bernice?! Yes, check State of Grace out because they have so many fun ones for adults!
that coat rocks! your style is so rad!
Thank you Kelsey. I can’t resist faux fur ever, and a good statement tee for that matter.

Yes totally true Anna. If you can’t say sassy things, then by all means wear it! Hehe.
That top is awesome. I had no idea there meaning being”Bye Felicia!” And actually find it comical! Makes the top that much better! .
You’re bottle sounds awesome, too.
Isn’t it such a mean but funny saying. Now you know and make sure no one ever says it to you! =)
Haha my baptist name is Felicia so I don’t know if I should like the statement or not, it’s funny nonetheless :’D
Oh Dear Bumblebees
Hi Felicia, and omg, you’re right! For those that are named Felicia, I can totally see where this line is not funny at all! =)
Thanks for the education. I had no idea what it meant, but love the combo & sass of the shirt.
This is such a beautiful outfit! I love the styling, so bold and fierce! 😀
Your style is perfection babe!!
