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! 😉

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.  It rhymes, D comes after C, and I was heavily watching Gossip Girl right before I bought the bag and I freaking loved Dorota.  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.  So “Dorota” pays homage to my love affair with all things Gossip Girl.

DOROTA!

And for good measure, here’s Chuck Bass in a onesie. 🙂
