I keep seeing posts in my blog feed about overalls or dungarees or whatever you want to call them. I can see that some people can pull them off (kind of) but all I think of when I see overalls is one thing.
Eh, you say?
Back in 1995/1996 overalls were THE hottest thing out. I had a light denim long pair and a pair of tencel (who remembers that?) black short pair both from Just Jeans. I loved and lived in them. I wore the long ones to one of the first 'socials' I went to in grade 8. For some reason a guy that I went to primary school with decided it would be a good idea to give me a wedgie. It was a wedgie where my feet were not touching the ground. To add to the humiliation my overalls broke and wait for it ... I cried. SHAME.
Fast forward seventeen years (am I really that old?!) and I've ditched the tomboy who used to get around in converse basketball shorts and oversized nike tees and replaced her (or is that him?) with quite the girly wardrobe. I feel a bit huge in this dress but LOVE the pattern and LOVE the monochrome.
