T-shirts for the People.

I was in a sorority in college and graduated with a large collection of sorority/fraternity t-shirts. But as I am now almost 27, married and maaaaybe a little more grown-up I've started feeling silly walking around town wearing "Phi Mu Carnation Ball "97: Where the Wild Things Are" or "Kappa Sigma Beach Party '98: What's Up Beach?" And Andrew screams in horror every time he sees one particular Bid Day shirt with a silkscreened photo of a creepy Anne Geddes babies dressed like a lion.
So....I want new t-shirts. No, I need new t-shirts. Loosetooth.com's Shop Blog is currently a Blog of Note and there are some terrific tees on her site. The "I Love My Life" and "Optimist/Pessimist" ones are among my favorites but they are all great.
Another cool site is Simply Vintage, which doesn’t have a lot of information about themselves but they sell um, faux vintage t-shirts? Some could be reproduction of oldies and others are just goofy for the heck of it I guess. Anyway, how can you not love a shirt with a slice of pizza saying, "Please Don't Eat Me, I Love You"? No? Then how about a "Corey Feldman Center of the Arts"? "Lemon Time"? "Folk it Up"?
Something for everyone......
