The first tee was purchased by my grandmother from Built by Wendy. It depicted Scout and Boo Radley from To Kill A Mockingbird sitting on the front porch swing speaking for the first time. I absolutely loved it because I had recently read the novel in school. Paired with black indigo denim skinny jeans and a black cardigan, this was one graphic tee I didn't mind wearing.
Another, which I no longer own, I purchased when I was seventeen. It was a Persian green with hot pink print of a cobra snake neck with Mark Hunter, The Cobra Snake's head atop. In the Los Angeles area, the Cobra Snake was a party photographer snapping shots of my heroine chic icons of the day - Cory Kennedy and her ever-changing crew of luscious young ladies mixing designer items from Chanel and Ralph Lauren with 1980s-90s thrift store finds all the while redefining the word 'party'.
Another shirt, one of my very first Urban Outfitter's purchases at 16, constructed of a light cotton blend has ruffled sleeves and screen prints of owls on leafy green branches. Incredibly comfortable, I wore that shirt so proudly in so many ways. It furthered my love for owls, and, although the shirt no longer fits, I still the bird.
Well, add this Simeon Farrar Kate Mouse t-shirt to my list because this is a beauty! I love it to pieces, and want it now, now, now! And, better yet, despite its $80 price tag, you can take comfort in knowing that over %50 of the proceeds will go toward rebuilding Japan after the earthquake through the Red Cross. You can find it online at net-a-porter.com While your at it, pick up one for me. ;)
