It was not enough for Lee & Andrew Sequeira, the husband and wife team of the popular online boutique to launch a new line of t-shirts. They wanted to give them purpose, and are doing so with a promise to give back to the community by donating a portion of each retail sale to the Battered Mothers Resource Fund Inc., a non-profit organization for battered women with children.

The Sequeiras were inspired to create something new and unique to the line up as well, and the result is CosmeTees, a pretty, yet cheeky line of tees embellished with Swarovski crystals which give the shirts a diamond-like sparkle.

CosmeTees celebrate everything from individuality to female milestones, with bubbly expressions that make a statement. A few of the tees include: Cosmo Girl, Bombshell, Spoiled Rotten, Drama Queen, Cute & Kosher and Desperate Housewife. There are dozens more, including a boutique line for brides, the bridal party and expectant moms.

Additionally, the company has an exciting line of "Dare to Wear" shirts for women who have had cosmetic surgery and wish to celebrate it. "It helps to have a good sense of humor to wear these tees" states Andrew Sequeira. For the bold and humorous, shirts include Nipped/Tucked in the USA, I'm Under Construction, I Love the New Me, Work in Progress, Nose Shown Not Actual Size and many others which embrace the process of change and recovery rather than the attempt to conceal it.

Says Lee Sequeira, "The purpose of launching this new line is to make women feel good about themselves. I thought clever sayings paired with quality shirts and beautiful Swarovski crystals were the perfect combination. Most importantly, I wanted the line to support a good cause and to help women who are in a time of crisis."

The Sequeira's also recently acquired Sparkle Plenty Designs, Inc ( a business working directly with Swarovski to bring their stunning crystal jewelry and tee shirts to web shoppers and boutiques around the country.
