summoning the storm xxl



I caved and I bought this tshirt. Knowing its unexpected rise to popularity, I am surprised I got it for such a decent price. The sellers could have easily marked it up twenty thirty dollars and I'm sure people would still be buying it. Hell, Topshop's version is going for nearly three times the amount I got mine for. I have come across tutorials on how to Margiela-ize the tshirt with shoulder pads and a few yards of black fabric, but I actually prefer it in its original form. Nice and baggy, to be worn as a dress.

  17. I love that tee! I've had my eye out in for similar ones in thrift stores, but have yet to stumble across the perfect one. And the fact that you can wear it as a dress makes it ten times cooler. Colour me jealous!
