Yes... it really is true. Our very first STYLE-O-MATIC pick ever is the 'MOSSIMO' basic T-Shirt collection at TARGET! Really?... you ask!
Well, call us crazy, because we are... crazy in love with this super affordable collection of time tested. indispensable, foundational basics... a stretch bra strap camisole, 100% cotton ribbed tank (not pictured) and flat knit short sleeve and long sleeve T's... which are pretty unbeatable in every way.
According to VIA VTG VOX POP's own 'VPC' (Value per Cost) formula (simply dividing the price you pay for something by the number of times you use/wear it), they are the best in category fashion basics around. Ones we can't imagine our lives without... and we've tried them all from high designer to fast fashion rivals.
Averaging $9 to $14 (with sales frequently making those prices even more enticing), we feel simultaneously guilty and overjoyed for all they give us at such low cost... great fit, lasting quality, seams that barely twist, cotton that rarely pills and the basic colors we need (white, heather grey, sand and black) each season. An added plus, is that larger sizes can double as slouchy, oversized tunic bodies for some.
The basic Mossimo stretch cotton legging is a great no-brainer too, though from season to season it's fit can have identity issues as can their trendier, non-basic, t-body offerings, so proceed with caution!
As our #1 go-to's for nearly every outfit we imagine, we stock up on them twice a year (Spring-Summer/Fall-Winter). Not because the old ones have failed us, but because we've worn them to comfy perfection and crisp, fresh ones feel in order to kick off the upcoming season. Once you try the collection, you will too!
We have a thing for vintage, but we like to mix high fashion with low too.
We look for value in what we buy at all points of the cost spectrum.
We hold no allegiance to singular brands... YEAH!
We aren't married to any style ideology... YEAH!
We don't worship at the alter of 'designer'... YEAH!
We are open minded, non-discriminating, equal opportunity design and style enthusiasts
bringing YOU the best of what WE feel is the best here... period... never swayed by cash, fame or the like.
(Thank you for the appreciative round of applause!)
