For the guys- American Apparel tri-coffee tri-blend tanks and a 50/50 American Apparel t-shirt in new silver. $24 each.

For the gals- Alternative Apparel Kimber tee, burnout and oversized for $32. I also have the snake racerback tank for $30.

Check out the snake t-dress. It was featured in the AIFS show last weekend. It's a great summer dress!
