[WAYW] I Survived The Battle of New York

Tees? Not my thing. But when a sizable amount of comic book wear comes in the form of my age old nemesis, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Which is essentially customising a tee by cutting it up. Boy, I’m just a regular superhero aren’t I.

As the “I Survived The Battle of New York” was a ~special exclusive~ from NYCC, and NYCC broke me as a person BUT IN A REALLY GOOD WAY, this will be a two-parter on How To Style A Tee When You Don’t Really Wear Jeans And Tees Are Not Your Thing Okay.

Quickie Fashion Advice Time With Lin: Teeshirts don’t have to be same old, same old. Give crew necks a touch-up by cutting a wider neckline; cut basic sleeves at an angle for insta interest. And you don’t need to fancy it up, either — a quick way to navigate around this is to flip the bird at old adages, and just tuck it in with a skirt or a pair of skinny jeans. Add heels or ballet flats, and a funky belt. Voila!

Special heart-shaped thanks for the patent Coach wristlet because it was a birthday gift from Mandy, my favourite asshole. Whenever I use it, I think fondly of the time we almost died of alcohol poisoning and comic books.
