right before my eyes

Remember the mood rings of grade school days? Somehow, they were suppose to determine your mood by the ever changing color. I don't remember having one but I do remember finding them peculiar. There were also pencils that changed color once you gripped them. Now, I like those. But then, I like pencils of all assortments. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, there were color changing t-shirts by Generra Hypercolor but I barely remember those. I guess I didn't have one.

Every once in awhile, I like to go to the American Apparel website and check out their "coming soon" section. I was a bit intrigued when I saw that they were carrying their own thermochromatic t-shirts... shirts "made with a temperature sensitive pigment that changes between two colors - one when cold, one when warm." It brings me back to days of mood rings and color changing pencils. Hmmm... if the shirt starts to change to a light color, could you say that you are getting excited, nervous, or anxious?

It also says "avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight." I wonder what would happen. Supposedly, your shirt would get ruined but how? Anyways, the idea is pretty cool. If only they made such a shirt in one of their deep v-necks, my American Apparel t-shirt of choice. If you like them, you can get your hands on one now.

Soon after, I would discover the label ANZEVINO and FLORENCE and their own version of color change clothing. If you have a few extra bucks to spare, I would go this route. I prefer the boatneck cut and raw edge detail of their T. They also have an equally fabulous tank dress. I want one of each!

FYI: If the shirts are left too long in direct sunlight, they permanently stay the "hot" color.

...and I totally remember the color changing pencils!! how fun!
