One thing this summer's lab outfit constraints have reminded me of is my collection of graphic tees. I lived the supremely casual fashion lifestyle until a few years ago. I love my shirts, so they're still hanging around underutilized, but filed nicely in a drawer (you can see more shirts waiting to be folded in the background):
While I don't think a string of Outfit of the Day posts featuring jeans and a graphic tee would be that interesting, I thought a few of the designs would make a nice mid-week post while I'm out and about at school.
|Katamari Damacy (a gift)|
|Labyrinth, my favorite film. Got to see a showing in the Castro w/Brian Henson!|
|Saw a gal with a different cartoon deity on her shirt the other day. Wish I could have taken a picture of our blasphemous selves together.|
|AZN from Target. Fake, still pretty.|
|The city college here does great shirts. And science.|
I think of the tee as the zero point garment of American style: it's the bottom line, the cheap basic item considered "clothing", and going below that may be considered unseemly or exceedingly casual, such as wearing a bra or a pyjama top in public. The way the graphics and cuts of this basic clothing item keep changing has intrigued and attracted me, as a casual comfort oriented person. Do you keep plain or graphic tees around to be comfortable in? Do you wear them outside or are they just worn in the home?
