Exactly my feelings toward this t-shirt. This t-shirt and I go back a long way, we've got history...even before I owned the t-shirt.
I grew up loving GNR, and I still do. And hands-up,
holla--AXL is my fella HOOSIER!
Too bad for him;
I'm in LOVE w/SLASH!!!!
Now, believe it or not, this pretty gem of a vintage concert tee was bought for a whopping $0.25! Yet another reason I love The Village Thrift in Ohio (Cuyahoga Falls location). It was actually an XXL, so I saw no reason to leave it hanging on the rack-quickly I snagged it before someone else's greedy grubby mitts could take it. Being a fashion girl at the time (this was back in college), it was no problem to whittle it down, resize it, and make it my own. And Voila! Seven years later and I love it dearly still!
I did laundry today, not exciting. Yet, all the while I couldn't help but feel like I should be back home at our annual summertime
"Thunder on the Ohio"--I do recall it happens every August. It's a hydroplane race on the Ohio River in Evansville, IN for any of you not familiar. And basically, this outfit is the typical uniform of Southern Indiana folk at such an event. Just insert a Budweiser in one hand, and a cigarette in the other and I'd fit right in.
Ironically enough, I spoke to my parents today, and my father proceeded to tell me that "Thunder" (nickname for said event)was happening as we spoke!
Maybe "Thunder" and I were unconsciously channelling eachother. I dressed the part, and Thunder entered my thoughts. Who knows?

Back in the day (college years), I stupidly thought studs made everything so much better. I proceeded to take action, studding away at this tee. Since then, many of the studs have fallen off, leaving holes as permanent reminders of my "BEDAZZLED DAYS" of yore. I wish it were possible that all these studs could come out, leaving no holes. Oh how stupid young kids can be, why did I think studs were a good idea?
Ooopsie-worst photo EVER! I must've been walking or moving around since I can't seem to stand still while my self-timer counts down. Sorry folks. But it's a NECESSITY that I show you the back view too.
