i've had this t-shirt for years but i cut the sleeves off last week after being inspired by this picture of sjp. i wore it to work with my white, cropped tuxedo jacket (last worn here), but it was too hot to wear for these pictures, which were taken during a quick walk through the des moines arts festival.
it reminded me of the year my best friend, erika, and i got really "creative" with all our clothes. we started hacking away at shirts, shorts, pants...making holes, drapey necklines, et cetera. we ruined a lot of t-shirts, but had a few successes. i remember getting busted at my private school for cutting the necklines on all my uniforms. so much for artistic expression. (which, i suppose is why they're called "uniforms.") i'm sure my mother was less than pleased. after that i wore safety pins as earrings and bought crazy belts to wear with my khaki pants. i probably looked silly, but at least i didn't look exactly the same.
