City Pulse

If I see one more “Everyone Loves A (fill in the blank with pertinent ethnicity/religion/hometown) Girl” tee-shirt, I’m going to have to hand out citations on behalf of the Fashion Police. What was at first an amusing trend has gotten to be such a ubiquitous statement to boast on your clothing, that like the way of the dinosaurs, I’m hoping for extinction.

I was out scouting the latest fashions on the streets of Soho this weekend, a perfect time to catch glimpses of people in all their Spring Wardrobe Glory, finally shedding layers of heavy, drab hues/fabrics in favor of lighter garb and saw the most fabulous statement tee-shirt, I ran over and demanded information from its owner. Paired with a prairie skirt, over-sized belt and moccasin-style sandals, was an asymmetrical black short-sleeved tee that read “…But He Drive$ a Mercedes.” No need to explain that this time, you fill in the blank with pertinent pejorative information on your current beau. It made me laugh aloud, something I usually need to turn on an old episode of Seinfeld to do. Irreverent and poking a tiny bit of fun at the materialism this city breeds, I have one on express order from it’s manufacturer, a new line called All Types, Every Stripe. There. Spring shopping complete.

To order, call 917-843-5911
