This t-shirt rules, especially when you consider this other one that is totally bullshit.

Note: This post comes from an e-mail to my friend Joanna, to answer her question about where to find cute tees that don’t look silly on a grown-ass woman.
Because it is sometimes necessary in life to spend $30 for a t-shirt. As we should all be out of that part of our lives where we no longer wear oversized concert tees, we need to satisfy that "I want a nice t-shirt I can wear to the party where that guy from order entry that I want to make out with will be" urge.
Please don’t say it’s just me who gets that urge from time to time.
Also, let me re-emphasize that it’s oversized concert tees that I have issues with. Jacalyn’s Jane’s Addiction baseball jersey from today was fantastic, and a perfect example of what grown ladies should wear when it comes to band swag.
And now on to the list. Feel free to pass on to whoever you feel could use this advice. Like I really know anything. I mean, I wore a lurid orange t-shirt which bore the legend I Hate What You’re Wearing on it. People either looked annoyed (just about everybody) or loved it (you lot, Jon A.).
Scoop (overrated, but there might be some good deals in the sale section)
Anthropologie (a bit precious at times, and the construction can be a bit skeevy, but so pretty)
Kitson (if you’ve always wanted to shop straight out of US Weekly, be my guest, but know that any store that doesn’t have the sense to not carry products designed by Paris or Nicky Hilton will never see my money)
Brass Plum (yeah, I know the models look cheesy, but look at the cute tops!)
Now I know we said American Apparel was plain, but I like the look and fit of the following (also, the color range is amazing):
- sheer jersey 2-sided top
- sheer jersey shoulder tie tube top
- sheer jersey ruffled front cami
- interlock high-waisted skirt
If nothing else, love the selection of bold tees from Giant Robot (especially the ones from Geoff McFetridge and Yoshimoto Nara, both in the Clothing/2K section)
You don’t have to be Pinoy to celebrate Filipino Independence Day (which was just this past weekend — d’oh!) nor do you have to be Pinoy to wear this fly-ass t-shirt. Feel free to rock it any time, anywhere, anyplace — at church, the karaoke bar, or dinner at your nanay’s.
And if you are so inclined (and of legal drinking age), get yourself some tasty San Miguel to wash down the lumpia you will most likely crave once you wear this shirt. Though if you’re like me, you crave lumpia all the time, t-shirt or not.
I saw this at my local Urban Outfitters, where they had it in pink, along with the beige shown in this photo. The guy’s really cute, so I find it hard to believe that he has never known the touch of a similarly adorable person.
Both Nadine and Jacinda didn’t think I should buy it — Nadine because it would get me all sorts of unwanted attention, Jacinda because she thought it would be funnier if I just made a t-shirt that says “Trust me, I masturbate”.
And so begins my Christmas wishlist for 2004. Go to http://emotionlotion.org/moz and get yourself a cool-ass Mozfather t-shirt, for just $10! Help April go see Morrissey as many times as she can stand it! I’ve seen Morrissey live four times, including a show at the old Limelight that got shut down early by the NYFD it was so dangerous, and he is incredible. Go April!
