I have a weakness for trompe l’oeil clothing:
- Trompe l’oeil stitched motorcycle jacket
- Trompe l’oeil safety pin skirt
- Trompe l’oeil zipper dress
- Trompe l’oeil ribbon neckline dress
- Trompe l’oeil Lego dress
But I don’t like wearing a “crisp white shirt.” The fact that a “crisp white shirt” is supposed to be a wardrobe staple irks me. I don’t feel comfortable in one at all. In addition, I hate the fact that everyone feels obliged to use the word “crisp.” Can’t it just be a white shirt? Does it always have to be crispy? That said, this adorable trompe l’oeil crisp white shirt from Proenza Schouler‘s second collection made me waver. If I were going to get a white shirt, it would be this one. At least it’s got a sense of humor.
I’m not going to do it, so knock yourself out!
Meanwhile, as a New Yorker who doesn’t cook, Jeremy Scott’s take-out tank had a lot of appeal, but it’s sold out
