Where does my enthusiasm for (slash borderline-obsession with) graphic tees come from?! Perhaps it dates back to high school when I only wore t-shirts, so they are nostalgic. Or perhaps it's a desire to "elevate" my style origins, so I'm constantly looking for fun new ways to dress them up. Or maybe that's just always been my default, and some things never change? (Kinda neat to think about why we are drawn to specific things!) I have, on numerous occasions, wished I had a graphic tee with red on it that wasn't Mickey Mouse, SO... David Bowie is new. Welcome to my closet. It's going to be a wild ride...

Also: I recently posted about this coat from ModCloth but unfortunately it didn't work out. Love the color and polka dots but the shape is definitely "cocoon" on me, which is code for really boxy and unflattering. Looks really cute on her though!
