Actress Laura Prepon, who was born in Watchung, plays Alex Vause on Netflix’s hit show Orange Is the New Black. Alex has a major role in Season 4 (no spoilers here!), and has proven herself to be more than just Piper’s on-again-off-again prison girlfriend. Now you can celebrate all of Alex’s fierceness and contribute to a good cause with this “Like a Vause” charity t-shirt, featuring an image of the character, her signature glasses on her head along with three red roses. The shirt is being sold exclusively by crowdfunding site Omaze.
Season 4 of @oitnb is here, so you have your weekend plans—but I’ve got one more for you. Treat yourself this awesome exclusive tee by snagging one through: omaze.com/laura All shirts support @lowlinenyc the world's first underground park! They've developed innovative solar technology to illuminate a historical trolley terminal and create a beautiful green respite in the heart of New York City. #oitnb #alexvause #likeavause #support #lowlinenyc #omaze #park #nyc #limitededition #exclusive
The heather gray shirt comes in v-neck or unisex, and as Laura says on the site, “We made this shirt just for OITNB fans! There’s a little Alex Vause in everyone, so grab this shirt, support a great cause, and be the ultimate Vause.” The proceeds benefit Lowline, the world’s first underground park. As Laura described Lowline on Instagram, “They’ve developed innovative solar technology to illuminate a historical trolley terminal and create a beautiful green respite in the heart of New York City.” Sounds like it’ll be the perfect stop for a day trip from Jersey!
Because they’re being crowdfunded, the shirts are only available for a limited time, so you’ve got until Saturday to snag yours (shirts will ship two weeks after the campaign ends). If you’re a major Orange Is the New Black fan, you’ll want to rock this and gain a little inspiration from Alex’s approach to life. We already know Laura is a fashion star, so any look she’s recommending, from red carpet dresses to an everyday t-shirt, is surely a sartorial stunner.
