I found this badassical Kelly Wearstler top at Secondi, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was made in the USA. I was even more pleasantly surprised to learn that is the case for the vast majority of her edgy offerings, from clothing to accessories.
I'm not exactly sure how I would classify this shirt: punk? graphic? goth? sci-fi? It's sort of all of those things mashed up into one awesome mesh wonder, and when I tried it on, it just felt right. It's appropriate for many of my dream occasions, such as dinner with my favorite sci-fi writer or drinks with Patrick Stewart. And one should always be prepared for dreams to come true, yes?
Below are some of my favorite made-in-the-USA pieces by Ms. Wearstler-- I really love her aesthetic, but of course I love her commitment to manufacturing here at home all the more.
