Think it was couple seasons ago, Marc Jacobs had a collection where Disney’s iconic ambassador, Mickey, was prominently featured on crop tops worn by seriously seductive models. Shortly after, Miley Cyrus sports the look right on the money, winning countless features in fashion magazines everywhere.
I mean, who can blame Miley? Mickey Mouse is hot! I had been looking for an affordable-non-Marc Jacobs-version of an everyday shirt with Mickey front and center for a long time, so you can imagine my giddiness when I spotted this grey cotton tee at an Uniqlo in Tokyo. It was our first night in the city and we were so overwhelmed by every bit of Shinjuku, so much so that we only allotted 10 minutes to shop (you can’t NOT walk into a ginormous Uniqlo when you see one).
Needless to say, I sneaked back into the fitting room and changed into the shirt immediately after checking out—I looked in the mirror and somehow felt more Tokyoan than ever.
