It's not a Kenzo, but...

tiger tee, graphic tee, vintage tee, safari jacket, skinny jeans, booties, H&M studded bag, headband, bangles, New Histories rings

... it is pretty fierce.  Right?  Can we please talk about graphic tees for a moment?  They have been all over the place all season and I didn't own a single one... until I got to Germany and started converting Soldier Boy's bachelor pad into a less fratty-something-resembling-a-home.  Part of that process was cleaning out his closet(s)... all 4 of them (!!!... yeah... I only have 1) AND the suitcases of clothes that he's been carting around the world but hasn't opened for years.  

Well, tout le monde, in those suitcases was a horrible trove of treasures... the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Apparently, when Soldier Boy's daddio used to travel, he'd send Trip a strange t-shirt with a graphic print of an animal of some sort from each place he visited.  Not a single one of them actually fit in any way resembling well, and so... I have now inherited some strange cargo of my very own!  

I am happy to unveil my vintage tiger tee (from Florida)!  Just wait until I bust out my cobra... or the bald eagle shirt I cut into a muscle tank... just you wait...
