EDIT 10 July 2010: Winner announced! Thanks to everyone who entered and voted!
When I first saw Alexa Galler's t-shirt line Eighteenth, I immediately wondered, "Am I cool enough to wear something that cool?" Her shirts are awesome, and I swear they look like something a girl on The Sartorialist would be wearing while crossing the street on her way to a modeling go-see (except the model would be wearing pants... hopefully!):
See! I told you they were cool! I love that they're also available locally at Kick Pleat as well as some other shops around the country. My favorite part? It's a twist on the basic t-shirt! Alexa had this to say about her line:
Exploring the design possibilities of the beloved tee, Eighteenth is a series of black and white shirts that combine unique detailing with a minimalist sensibility. The T-Shirts are innovative, yet never over the top, and present a fashion forward alternative to a basic style.
But the coolest part? You can win one of these. I can almost promise you that wearing this will land you on the front page of Lookbook or Chictopia if you add a couple of the elements from the "Anatomy of a Fashion Blogger" list!
In good humor, Alexa has agreed to the most fun contest we've had on Adored Austin, yet! There are two ways to enter:

Huge thanks to Alexa, the designer and owner of Eighteenth, for her generosity and sense of humor about my idea for the photo contest. I hope y'all are as excited about seeing the entries as I am! For now? Comment! Enter! Go!
