You know I’ve always been the kind of girl who was attracted to articles of clothing that bore words on them. Nouns, verbs, adjectives...I don’t discriminate. I mean like, it doesn’t really matter what it says. Fifth grade may be when my obsession took hold. In 5th grade I ironically rocked a Pokemon tee, Pikachu and all. (I never played Pokemon, I simply liked that graphic...this baffled my mother.) In 6th grade , I had two seperate tops that read, “Princess; one in pink glitter and the other in faux white diamonds. In 7th grade I wore a baby pink wife beater printed with the puzzling (to a 13 year old boy) “I’m a Carrie.” In curlz. In 8th grade a I wore a tank whose straps could be untied at the shoulders, that said “Hot and Spicy”, in a Far East (Asian) inspired font, if you will. In high school, my grahic tees took a turn for the commercial, with my messages reading “Hurley”, “Volcom”, and “Billabong”. Even as my taste has (somewhat) matured, I still find myself drawn to those words. I think it’s fun to use them as a prop to tell your fashion story. In this look, I used the kitchy “Heart Breaker” to channel Patricia Arquette as Alabama Whitman in Tarantino’s “True Romance”; with a dash of some 2013 freshness, of course. Wore this out with my boyfriend for drinks at the Memphis Cafe on Saturday night for some true romancin’ of my own...
