Johnny Cupcakes Faves.

Sorry for two non-outfit posts in a row. I'll post an outfit later today, but...

Being from Boston, I feel like I have to bring up Boston-based t-shirt designer Johnny Cupcakes. A few years ago when I used to frequent gigs at the Avalon (R.I.P.) on Lansdowne Street in Boston, this short little guy who called himself Johnny Cupcakes would show up at every show and he'd have some of his shirts to offer the bands after their shows. This was an excellent publicity move on Johnny's part. His shirts became popular incredibly fast. Kids everywhere wanted a Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt. The first boutique was opened in Boston, plus there's a location in Los Angeles, several boutiques worldwide that carry Johnny Cupcakes items, and an online shop.

Another great thing about them, they're printed on American Apparel tees, which I think fit best. And let's be honest... Who doesn't love cupcakes?

Here are some of my favorite tees:

The original, the Crossbones Classic t-shirt. The one that started it all.

Crossbones Fork

Frosting the Snowman

Support Local

View Baker

Tongue Flag Pole

Pink Frosting

And they sell a few other cute little things as well:

Sterling Silver Large Logo Necklace

Kitchen Handbag Black

Ants In My Pants Girls Undies

The cute little shop is set up like a bakery:

And when you walk out of the store, they wrap up your shirt and put it in one of these cute little carriers:

Later today, I'll show you me in my Johnny Cupcakes tee!
