Sweat-shop free, and innovative marketing. American Apparel makes cotton basics anything but. Recently I went perusing on their website (I really want their new Look Book) and found a handful of items that would improve my life dramatically. Ok, I exaggerate, but these are clever additions to my what-to-wear list.
Brogues/Oxfords. These are a must have item for summer. I already have a lovely vintage white pair, but want black leather brogues. American Apparel has two offerings of these beautiful basics, both made in the USA.

Nautical Striped Sweater. Oooooh-fucking-La! This sweater is so adorable it makes my teeth hurt. And would go so great with my denim bubble skirt and "jeggings." And pretty my entire "Mayflower" red, white and blue ensembles that I usually wear all summer.
Lace trimmed biker shorts. I wear short skirts and dresses but am a girl of modest means. Meaning I have modesty and always put on a pair of bloomers or shorts beneath my high hems. These shorts would be great to wear under a breezy mini, or paired with a long T-shirt or sweater.
Polka-Dot Body Suit. What a great layering device this little bathing beauty could be. I've always liked wearing body suits as they are incredibly versatile, and this polka-dotted number would wear so well underneath so many of my things!
Dear Reader: What would YOU want from American Apparel this spring?
