Overalls a Thing of the Past? I THINK NOT.

Header-01

I’ve always loved overalls. ALWAYS. I remember wearing them through my awkward Jr. High days. And when I was in college, I found an incredible pair of Union Bay overalls that I’ve worn…and worn…and worn. I wear them to paint. I wear them to lounge. Hell, I wore them to the bar a few times. Here are a few examples.

So you can imagine how sad I was when I realized that I couldn’t find overalls anymore. I mean, good overalls. All I could find were these sorry excuses.

Who wants skinny legged overalls? It was either this or the super rugged ones that were actually meant for work.

Then I saw Gwen Stefani. In overalls. And Gwen Stefani is cool, so I thought, “I’ll just find her overalls!”

Problem #1 – they still look KIND of skinny leg. I’m a lil curvy and I want them to fit like my other ones. These COULD have been the answer, but before I thought about seriously buying them, I couldn’t find my size on any site.

Which is why when I came across these babies yesterday, I pounced.

They look wide leggy enough. They’re distressed. They’re fashionable (they’re Ralph Lauren, people). And some of the sites were already running low/out of my size. So…I did it. I couldn’t help myself! I’m waiting anxiously for them to get here. I hope that they’re everything I dreamed they would be, because the old Union Bays are falling apart. And they’re better overalls for it! šŸ˜‰

Frye Bags and Onesies and LOVE, oh MY!

Header-01Oh shut up. You KNEW I was going to post pictures of my new purse (along with my other Frye purse), so don’t judge me! 2014-01-17 13.05.49 When I got my first Frye bag, she was just so saucy and red and wonderful and I named her Carlotta (after a character on Friday Night Lights). So when I ordered her tiny counterpart, I named her Dorota. Ā It rhymes, D comes after C, and I was heavily watchingĀ Gossip GirlĀ right before I bought the bag and I freaking loved Dorota. Ā Plus, my style was affirmed when I saw Chuck Bass wearing a OnePiece Onesie (which I now own two of because I’m farking addicted to those, too) to play basketball. Ā So “Dorota” pays homage to my love affair with all thingsĀ Gossip Girl.

DOROTA!

And for good measure, here’s Chuck Bass in a onesie. šŸ™‚
