I was so smitten by these metallic foil tees that I saw at Zadig & Voltaire; I wanted one immediately.
But let’s get real–a tee shirt for $98? The “I’m a mom now and I’ll have to pay for another person to ‘find themselves’ at college” part of me balked. I became that annoying person you hear at every art festival–“I could do that.” I immediately spun visions of recreating them with fabric paint and a sponge.
That turned out to be a big ‘ole pile of Nope.
Thank goodness I tried this on Target t-shirts, which only set me back $12 each (their drape is great; I’d recommend getting one and then NOT painting it).
If you really have to have it, sometimes the real deal is the way to go.
