Something I've been meaning to do for the last couple of months is to weed out my closet. I think I'm to the point where I have too many clothes. But the thought of going through and getting rid of stuff is kind of overwhelming to me. So I decided to make it a game. A game, partially inspired by my friend Chris and his blog 365 T-Shirts: a sense of doubt blog. On his blog, he's going through his t-shirt collection and doing up full blog posts for each. I'm hoping to do something similar. I plan on wearing each of my t-shirts just once until I've gone through my entire collection. I figure that by the time I'm through them all, I'll have a good sense on what I'm keeping and what I'm not. Do not expect the awesomeness of Chris' blog on these posts. I won't be doing one for each shirt and there won't be very much interesting commentary on the posts either. But I plan on posting pictures of them all and maybe a few words to go with them.
Today is the 3rd of January and I've worn one every day so far. There are days when I won't be wearing a t-shirt, though they should be pretty infrequent as I live in t-shirts. I'm excluding from this challenge my gym shirts as they are dirty and gross and I wear them over and over. But everything else is fair game.
This is one of my absolute favorite t-shirts. I only wear it this time of the year because of the (implied) Christmas theme. It's a Doctor Who/Doctor Seuss mash up with all the Doctors done up in a Grinch style. This shirt just makes me smile ear to ear. At least, it did until a few weeks ago. An updated version of this shirt was offered on one of the t-shirt of the day sites I love. The updated version includes the War Doctor on it. He's the Doctor who we recently found out comes between the Paul McGann version and the Christopher Eccleston version. But I didn't order it, as tempted as I was.
A generic Green Lantern symbol shirt. I have another one similar to this, so I'm not sure what compelled me to buy this one other than loving Green Lantern. I think I may have had a little store credit somewhere and didn't want to keep carrying it around with me, so I got this. I think.
This is my newest shirt. I mentioned on the January 1st shirt that I look at the different t-shirt of the day sites and shop them frequently. Actually, I go to teemagnet.com and they show the offerings from a half dozen or so sites each day. I got this one from RIPT Apparel, I believe. It's a Doctor Who/Power Puff Girls mash up. I think it's so fucking cute. I've got a thing for Doctor Who shirts, as you'll soon discover.
I do love my t-shirts. For the longest time I was too fat to buy any since they don't make anything interesting in circus tent sizes. Once I lost all that weight, I was going to buy myself anything that made me happy. And my shirts make me happy as shit. On the off chance I don't wear one to work, people always comment. I wore a button up shirt one day last week and half the office made comments about it. It was a little weird.
But there we are. Three days in and three shirts worn. I'll probably just end up doing a few shirts per post since it's been hard enough for me to post more than two or three times a month lately.
