You can walk into any clothing store right now and find a selection of graphic t-shirts. Some of my favorite graphic t-shirts have come from Delia’s, Hot Topic, Macy’s, and Forever 21. One thing we usually do not think about when purchasing t-shirts is “who designed this?” or “I wonder what the story behind this shirt is?”.

A place you can find cool and unique graphic t-shirts with a story behind them is Dfrnt Pigeon (Different Pigeon). This brand was created to help give homeless and at-risk youth a direction. Dfrnt Pigeon is based out of Portland, Oregon, and each t-shirt is created by a teenager in the group.

All of the shirts are printed by New Avenues ink, which is a screen printing company in Portland. Not only does this company print the shirts, but they employe and provide paid job training to the homeless and at-risk youth in the area.

I am wearing the ASL shirt, which is part of their current Identity collection. This shirt is very comfortable and easy to style. For this look, I paired this tee with burgundy skinny jeans and my new black booties from Toms.

These suede booties are also very comfortable and they have extra cushion on the inside. I love the cute tassels on the zippers too. You will definitely see these booties in a lot of blog posts for the fall and winter.

No outfit is complete without accessories, and for this outfit, I had to wear my favorite black hat. I kept my jewelry and sunglasses pretty simple with black and white pieces to match my shirt.
