"the telephone in your house wants to sing" by purpess
This has long been one of my favorite shirts because of the versatility of it. Of course, there's the obvious direction, the tuxedo inspired look, but these two ladies went somewhere else with it and this is WHY polyvore can be and IS so inspiring for so many fashionistas. I picked these two sets because in character, they are very similar. Both are using bold, block colors, both paired the shirt with unusual pieces, and both have a certain "geek chic" mentality about them that I mean in the best way possible. However, while Etranger chose to feature the shirt, purpess chose to use it as an accessory, almost as a shell underneath the dress. both work equally well.
