SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashionably Late + 3 Ways to Wear the T-shirt Everyone Wants!





Must-Have Tee: “Sorry I’m Late” t-shirt worn by Tracy Tang
Available this coming week at Blue Hand Home


There seemed to be a theme at Cindy Vach’s birthday gathering earlier this week. I predictably arrived late. Perhaps, only in honor of the birthday girl, who also is famous for being fashionably late? Nice try. Then, Tracy Tang (the owner of Blue Hand Home) arrived even later. With one glance at her t-shirt (worn under her chic black blazer), all was forgiven, drinks were ordered and everyone had a new t-shirt to add to their Pinterest or in my case, Instagram feed. Cheers to that!


The t-shirt, emblazoned with the simple message, “Sorry I’m Late” seems to have become a mantra for the current human condition, as evidenced by the emphatic response Tracy’s photo garnered on Facebook within minutes.


Susan Johnson admitted, “I really, really, really need one of those. The sad truth is, I probably need one for every day of the week” while Wendy Reavis exclaimed “The story of my life! I must have one too!!”


These time-deprived, punctually challenged women (myself included,
naturally) are in luck! Tracy recently placed a large order of these babies to arrive at Blue Hand Home (arriving early this coming week) but are already taking orders.

To give you a head-start on styling this t-shirt every day of the week
(Susan), I’ve styled the “fashionably late” tee 3 different ways.


I leave you with one last question from Facebook friend Kristie Liana Pate: “Is that shirt for the woman who is arriving ‘fashionably late,’ or announcing to her boyfriend that she’s pregnant?!”


Uhhh, here’s to hoping it looks cute enough to cover all (or almost
all) sins!
