Help me replace my girlfriend's favourite smiley heart t-shirt

Whilst in LA recently my girlfriend bought this t-shirt of a smiley heart face. She loves it, but it got ruined in transit. She is unhappy. Can you help us find it again?

She bought it from a small clothes store in LA, in Silver Lake.

The design looks like it was branded onto the t-shirt, which might account for the blackness coming off. It might be screen printed though.

Any leads on this would be amazing!!

it's really easy to get t-shirts made with a given design. all you need to do is copy the design and go to a place that prints t-shirts. so you could scan the t-shift, clean up the image in photoshop, and get a copy made.

That design is so simple it'd probably be easier to recreate the shirt than replace it. If I had a high-resolution scan of the graphic, or even a straight-on photograph, I could whip up a TIF or EPS file in a jiffy.

Response by poster: I agree that making this again might work. BUT the original is lovely. The way it is branded onto the t-shirt, as in, burnt on, gives it a quality that a print - and especially a reprint - will never capture.

Is there no way for her to figure out where she bought it from--maybe a credit card statement? If she's able to contact the store, they might be able to work out sending her one via mail?

There aren't THAT many clothing stores in Silver Lake, especially if you filter out all the vintage stores. Can't she just go through Yelp and see if she recognizes a name or a picture?
