“ro∙sham∙bo baby makes amazing sunglasses for babies, but recently I’ve become totally obsessed with their pint-sized t-shirts that rock amazing pop culture references, like a Saved By The Bell tee that names the entire Bayside crew and for the hip-hop lover another that lists rappers (Tupac, Biggie, you get the idea).”
