Tee Hee

Tee shirt spoofs pricey fashion logos --The ''Je Deteste Fakes'' parodies trendy ''J'Adore Dior'' tee and wins over Cameron Diaz and Christina Aguilera as fans

Tired of those overpriced ''J’Adore Dior'' tees, L.A.-based designer Rocio Soler whipped up a sartorial retort. And voilà! ''Je Déteste Fakes'' tanks that send up logo-happy fashion victims. ''I wanted to do a funny spoof,''she says. Soon, her cheeky -- and affordable -- Jolie Vie label (Cameron Diaz and Christina Aguilera are fans of the $40 tees; there’s also a snarky greeting card line) will take on overpampered tots: The upcoming spring line includes an ''I Only Fly First Class'' baby onesie. Sadly, the irony will no doubt be lost on some customers.
