Slick Slits Tee

My love of t-shirt transformations continues this week in the form of a sunburst/cage motif around the neckline of a slim fitting tee, creating an edgy effect on an otherwise simple shirt. I always have a problem finding a top to match a wilder bottom, like a punchy-print maxi skirt ¬†or studded shorts, because I […]
