I ordered this Salvador Dali shirt yesterday and I cannot wait to wear it! It is so perfectly quirky and delightfully weird. I have always loved Dali’s work, and now I can wear him and his big creepy mustache. Yeah! Wouldn’t red heart shaped sunglasses be a super cute Valentine’s gift for the one you [...]
