A Grunge Twist On A Nostalgic DARE Shirt

Wednesday, December 07, 2016 Unknown 6 Comments

I still remember the DARE shirt I got in fifth grade. It was gray with big red letters and it was an extra large which was simply comedic on my tiny child body. I wore the shit out of that shirt. So you can imagine that when I saw this one - but in black and with fab distressing - I had to get it immediately. It was partly for nostalgia and partly because I loved the idea of grunging it up with my leather jacket and fishnets.

The shoes are a recent thrift store find that I'm still freaking out over. I have the best used shoe luck. I think they're absolute perfection paired with knee high socks. This might be my favorite outfit for the entire year. If I had a pick a uniform to wear the rest of my life, this would be the one.

Did you have to take a resist drug and violence course in school? Was it the DARE program? Did you get a rad t-shirt? I'm especially curious what your program was called if you're outside the US!
