I never thought I’d be one of those people who “only” wore a certain garment from a certain place… It seems so celebrity and irrational. Queue an array quotes from big muckity-mucks about how they “only” wear Lanvin flats, and J Brand jeans, and “only” carry Mulberry/Marc Jacobs/Dior bags. Blech! What happened to opportunism? What happened to being inspired by the moment, and playing/experimenting with fashion? Becoming exclusive with a brand or item seems so limiting.
Well, at least, it used to seem that way before I discovered the most perfect v-neck t-shirt from an… unlikely source:
It shocked me that I became so unbelievably attached to the Route 66 V-Neck Tee from the Kmart near my parents’ house in rural-ish Washington. They are the perfect weight, cut, texture, price… I’m obsessed. I just stopped in and bought four more (in mustard, heather green, moss green, and black) to add to my collection of heather grey & white at home. I buy a size up because I like them baggier. $7.98, are you kidding?
Where do you get your basics?
