Last week I ruined my white t-shirt in painting class. I brought my crappy painting shirt with me to put on over top of my t-shirt when I got to class, but forgot to do so before I started painting and got red paint all over it, and somehow got more paint on it while I was trying to wash it off. Of course once I put the crappy painting shirt on I didn't get a single thing on it the whole class. White clothes are just magnets for everything terrible, it seems. So anywho, I needed a new white shirt. Normally my go to t-shirt is the deep V from American Apparel but I've put myself on a strict budget so I went to Goodwill instead, and found this perfect white t-shirt from Gap. This is the second time I have found a Gap t-shirt from the thrift store and it's been absolutely perfect. I talked last week about my goal this year to not buy any clothes from brands that use sweatshop labor. My one exception is buying these brands via thrift shops, because then I'm not supporting the brands directly and depending on the thrift shop I could potentially be supporting good causes. And thrifting is also recycling, which is something else I support. The point of this story is that Gap makes great t-shirts, but unfortunately they use sweatshops to make them so don't shop at Gap, but if you find a Gap shirt at a thrift store you make sure you buy that sucker!
