Some of you may recognize this T-shirt, it’s the official t-shirt we got in the swag bags at the Blog Paws pet bloggers conference.  As a T-shirt designer I have to say I would never be seen in a big boxy t-shirt. They’re not doing any of us ladies a favour when it comes to the female form. However, I do have a remedy for that…it’s called Shred It Like A Rockstar. Think about it, you can take any t-shirt and elevate it to rockstar status. I’m going to show you easy it is to shred…just walk this way.
