>> ...for creating the I <3 NY logo. The problem is, I feel like everyone else feels the same way. Which is fine, but it's made me shy away from wearing it -- it seems so popular, it's done. It's become a guilty pleasure for me, and I've been searching for a way to reinvent the logo to make it new and different. So lucky me, I was looking at pictures of Karen Elson after hearing the news, and I came across this great picture of her with THE shirt on. I love it, the juxtaposition of the punkish distressing of the tee itself and the feminine ruffles in place of the sleeves. And, the best thing about it, I feel like this is totally something that can very easily be done -- a little snip snip here, a little rub rub there, eh voila! C'est magnifique!
Then, it must be my lucky day -- I came across an even more doable option in the new issue of Teen Vogue (read: no snipping, no rubbing) -- the tote bag option. It's just different enough, and cheap, to boot ($11.99!). I don't know about you, but I'm cuted out by it.
If you like sticking with the classic, the tees are here for $14.99.
