'70s Inspired T-Shirts

Movies and television shows are a huge influence on the threads people are sportin'. Movies like Charlie's Angels inspired everyone to hit the thrift stores. They're after all kinds of retro designs, but one of the biggest fashion trends is funky 70's inspired T-shirts for girls and guys.

For girls it's baby Ts with cool iron-on designs of movie stars, cartoon characters, catch phrases and numbers. They're also available with different colored sleeves and material around the neckline. (Way back when, this was called a baseball-style T.)The glitter iron-ons are hot too!

For guys shirts' the designs are similar to the girls - well except for the baby T part. For the fellas it's all about bagginess and comfort. The designs vary from movie stars - usually Pulp Fiction-ish characters, to rock bands, numbers, chicks, cars and products like Atari video game logos.

You can usually find these shirts at stores that carry urban or street wear. Or you can pick out your own designs and styles in specialty iron-on decal shops. If you get lucky you may find something cool and rare at a thrift shop. Whatever the design, they go great with denim and a pair of retro shades.

What's the Coolest Glittery T-shirt?

  • A big rhinestone butterfly.
  • A catchy word like Rockstar or Supermodel.
  • All the ones I make myself are the coolest.
  • I think the whole trend is dumb.

I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.

Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.  I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't  define you -unless, of course you let it...  She probably wants you to feel "more grown up,"  or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons.  If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
