On my list of style icons 3 Feet High and Rising era De la Soul is near the top. I saw this picture of them from around that time and noticed that Maseo (a.k.a. Plug 3) is wearing a shirt that says “Plug 3” on it. Wearing a shirt with your name on it is great, and I like that it looks handmade. I’m especially into the peace sign and those finger painted mud flap ladies.
This is me at a young age sitting in dirt. I really liked this picture once I realized that the shirt I’m wearing appears to be hand painted by my mom (that heart in the upper left hand corner with lines coming out of it is a total Mom heart). People are always talking about wardrobe essentials like navy blue cardigans and black pumps, but I think these images demonstrate that your closet isn’t complete without a shirt hand painted for you, especially by someone who loves you or at least kind of likes you.
