The Perfect T

V-neck T: Victoria’s Secret PINK – find HERE

Pants: American Eagle – similar HERE

Shoes: Sperry Bahama’s – find HERE or HERE

Necklace: Nordstroms 

It seems like I’m always on the hunt for the perfect v-neck. I’ve had so many grey v-neck’s over the past few years it’s not even funny. It doesn’t seem like I ever discover the imperfections of one until the 3rd wash, either.

Situation: I purchase the PERFECT fitting v-neck. Take it home, wear it once, all is well. Until…DUN DUN DUN..I wash it. After the first wash, I notice the neck is stretched out weirdly or the t has shrunken completley. The love affair is now shattered.

Situation 2: I purchase the PERFECT fitting v-neck. Take it home, wear it AND wash it once, all is well. Until… DUN DUN DUN…the second wash. After the second wash, I notice the t has stretched out and is ridiculously ill-fitting. The love affair is now shattered. The t is out.

Situation 3: I purchase the PERFECT fitting v-neck. Take it home, wear it, wash it, wear it, wash it, and all is well. Until…. DUN DUN DUN…the third wash. After the third wash, I notice the fabric of the t is balled up and worn looking. The love affair is shattered. Time to buy a new t.

This was my life (I know, I know first world problems), until I happened upon this baby at Victoria’s Secret PINK. I wasn’t sure it was true love until I wore it after the 3rd wash…and now the 4th and 5th as well and it has proven itself reliable and wonderfully perfect. What’s better? At $17.50 (or 2/$28), this essential v-neck comes in a variety of colors.

Am I saying YES to this T? YES. Ah true love 

Do you have 3rd Wash problems? Or have you found the perfect T? Let me know!!

PS Just got a Twitter…SAY WHAT? Girl is way late at jumping on that bandwagon. Oh well…better late than never:]

    I'm glad you included the info about the washes. I hate when I wash a shirt and the neckline gets stretched out. I will check out VS because I have been looking for a t-shirt for a long time! Do they run true to size? Should I size up if I want it to be a little slouchy?
