Our next “Editor’s Pick” is a tribute to young Natalie Portman.
One fashion trend that I never seem to get tired of is fan merch. I’m one of those dedicated fangirls who’d always show up at a concert ahead of time, just to pick up a band tee or two. Like they say, I just want to wear my heart on my sleeve — pun intended.
You can only imagine my excitement when I discovered Yu Nagaba‘s movie-themed T-shirt line. I mean, it’s not always easy to come across movie merch without tacky graphics and type faces. If you’re a pop culture fanatic like me, read on to find out why you need to add this minimalist white tee to your wardrobe.
