Well, better late than never! The new Shirt Snob baby has made this post a little harder to get out this month, but since April an exciting month for us, we couldn't forget to do our monthly round up. So it's just coming a bit later than usual.
There were new tees at Busted Tees, a bunch of new ones at Threadless, we discovered Miele Fresca Tees and Rhidden Clothing, discovered Gama-Go's new spring collection, and once again praised Pregger 'n Proud with a review of the tees they were kind enough to send us.
As for blouses, there were a bunch of great ones we found this month. Our favorites include the Dry Knit Linen Slim Tank and the Pleated Baby Doll Tee, both by adam+eve, the Artemis Smocked Lace Top by Paul & Joe, the Tinkerbell Top by Sweetees, and the Edita with Chiffon Babydoll Top by Diane von Furstenberg.
Of course, there were tons of sales in April too that we told you about. Too bad they are all over now, or else we'd rehash those as well. We think it was a great month, the addition of Anderson William making it the best month of the Shirt Snob's life!

March has been a great month here at Shirt Snob. We have found a ton of great tops that will be wonderful for your wardrobes as spring came in and summer approaches.

Some of the t-shirt highlights include the new collection from Blue Platypus, new tees at Supermaggie, That's My Shirt tees, Ktt Shirts, By George!
