Have we brought skulls to the mall? Absolutely.

A rare Thursday Styles article that I identify with. I have a few shirts with skulls on them--some more subtle than others--and I'm unashamed to say I bought most of them at H&M. A few years ago, I asked my mom to buy me a shirt with a Jorge Guadalupe Posada (not Jorge Posada) cartoon on it so I could wear it for Dia de los Muertos. She was hesitant. "But it's cool to wear a skull shirt on that day!" I said.

"I'm more worried that people will think you're a Grateful Dead fan," she said.
