Like most girls, Nancy Drew was (and still is) one of my most beloved heroines. I have read all the books and *deep breathe* play the video games. Yes, they make Nancy Drew video games and they are pretty awesome (at least some of them are), even if they are rated for 8 to adult. I take a lot of liberty with that “adult” part. I just solved a mystery about a ghost in a Ryokan in Japan, what have you done recently, hunh? HUNH?!!
Sorry, I get a little defensive about my Nancy Drew video games. We’re all allowed our guilty pleasures right?
ANYWAY, my friend Kara knows that I love Nancy Drew and gave me a Nancy Drew T-Shirt for Christmas!
It is honestly my new favorite thing ever. Not only is it luxuriously comfortable and fits me beautifully, but for every t-shirt sold, the company that prints the t-shirt (Out of Print Clothing) also sends a book to a community in need through their partnership with the organization Books for Africa. I just about died. This is the most PERFECT thing! And although nothing really competes with Nancy Drew, the rest of their t-shirts are pretty wicked too:
One company has managed to combine everything I love: literacy, charity, design and print-ography. So much love for this operation, their aesthetic and what they do. Too. Much. Love.
(PS: thanks kara!)
