It's the Murder Mystery Tee from ModCloth, one of my favorite indie clothing sites (tons of retro and vintage-y clothes and accessories). I'm jonesing for this shirt because I love pianos and murder mysteries, and also because it's quirky and my wardrobe needs more quirky.
But I don't want to look like a scary homicidal goth girl. Blood stains are typically not a good fashion statement (unless they're in my novel!). Doesn't it seem, though, like the perfect shirt for an aspiring mystery novelist? No? Yes?
Fashion is so hard sometimes.
And at $28 it's a little pricey for a t-shirt, but I get the ModCloth e-mails with discount coupons, so it'll probably be more affordable in the near future.
Just in case you loathe the above shirt and are scared to visit ModCloth, here's a beautiful dress I'm drooling over:
It's the Secret Society Dress and it's gorgeous.
Uh oh. Do you see a pattern here? Is it possible I'm falling in love with the names of the clothes more than the clothes themselves?? Darn you, ModCloth, and your genius naming system! If you get in a "Nancy Drew Scarf" I'm totally buying it. Ditto a "Secret Agent Blouse," "Mata Hari Jacket" and "Super Spy High Heels."
