An appropriate sailor's girl shirt
I decided a long time ago that I don't look even remotely presentable in a t-shirt. Something about the shapeless, rectangular appearance of most shirts just makes me feel frumpy and dreary-looking. However, I had to make an exception for the shirt above from Anchor Apparel because it looks amazing and has the old vintage military Operational Security adage on it: Loose Lips Sink Ships. You can see it in the bottom of the ship, written in cursive.
I created the graphic above over two years ago during my boyfriend's Asia patrol. It's surprising how the font almost perfectly matches the text on the shirt graphic. I can't wait to receive it!
