I was going to title this item 'something for the boys', but you know what? If I had a little girl, I wouldn't think twice about putting her in this shirt. Times, you see, have changed. It's called progress. Anyway, I digress. Why is this pristine 1950s find my Item of the day? Well dear reader, let me tell you a little tale.
When I was a young girl I went on holiday to the Suffolk coast with my Grandparents. One evening they gave me a choice. We could either have a barbecue on the beach (*Big smiles! Jazz hands! Excited little jig*) OR (*quiet voice*) go to the cinema...obviously I picked the cinema. And thank goodness I did, for the film I saw that evening was Back to the Future lll, and it was the start of something pretty special in my life(including a crush on Michael J Fox, but that's another story...) Imagine my delight when I discovered that the film, which I adored and still do, was the worst of the trilogy!
The point is, for yes, there is a point, the first time I saw this shirt it reminded me of Back to the Future. There's just something about it that screams Hill Valley High, 1955, and that made me fall in love with it all over again.
The shirt is available to buy in the shop, only £10!
And seeing as it's Friday, here's a glimpse into my happy place...
