We like the Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Top by Graham & Spencer because the cowl neck seems to extend into the entire front of the blouse. The draping is lovely! There is also long sleeves, and it is sheer.

Blue Platypus has some new designs. This is one of our favorite t-shirt companies, but they rarely come out with anything new, so this is exciting. Check out Queen Anne and Blue Owl.
Over at Snorg Tees, we think I Love Math is perfect for the Geek in your life. There's also Real Men Don't Sparkle for any Harry Potter fans or those who don't like Twilight.
Threadless has some cute reprints such as Dandy Lions and Guess Who.
Finally, over at Nerdy Shirts, we love their new tee Double Rainbow.
Everyone needs something that they can pull on at a moment's notice and still look great. We like the Relaxed Raglan Pullover Sweater by Ami Dans La Rue as it's casual but still a great looking sweater. It features a crew neck, ribbed edges, long raglan sleeves, and stripes throughout. It is finely knit and available in three color combinations: black/silver, charcoal/red, and denim/suede.

Threadless is making some great changes! Their Select line will now include tanks, dresses, and different cuts of tees. We are very excited about this development because we'll have so many more choices in the future. Some of these include the designs Dandy Lions and Birds of a Feather. As for their regular tees, new designs include A Happy Place, the hoodie AnalogyPartly Cloudy. There is also a favorite in reprint, Frida's Garden.
Hip Hop Horray is too cute to pass up over at Snorg Tees. We also like their new design Sarcasm.
For any die hard Office Space fans like us, check out the Initech tee at Nerdy Shirts. If you're more of an Office fan, there's also a new Dunder Mifflin tee.
Finally, Red Prairie has a beautiful new design Flower Garden.
Wolf & Harrison is a new t-shirt company that sews patches on their shirts instead of the typical screen printing. We like this because it's a little different, and they look great. Their shirts have a southwestern cowboy feeling to them, so if this is something you like, you need to check them out. Right now they have seven women's tees, and hopefully they will add more in the future. There are men's designs available too.
