It's the Mona Lisa chav innit?

This tee is the definition of kitsch, I really love it. I also realised that I must go into TopMan more often as they have some really awesome t-shirts and their XS sizes are perfect for girls too. Also, why are the guys clothes so much cheaper? This Tee was such a bargain at only £14 rather than the typical £20 paid for girls tees?

The Mona Lisa Chav tee really makes me chuckle. Complete with stereotypical tower blocks in the background, a hair bow (really?!) gold hoops, name necklace, sovereign rings and scary false nails. This tee has been going down well with my Art History friends too.

As I said before, this tee lends itself nicely to Art Histoy and I'll leave you all with a picture of Marcel Duchamp's infamous L.H.O.O.Q, where he defaced a postcard version of Mona Lisa, causing much uproar when he presented it as art. Never without controversy, when pronounced in french, L.H.O.O.Q translates as "Elle a chaud au cul", or "She has a hot ass". I'll never forget the novelty of hearing my Art History lecturers say that out loud in class.
