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.

Ew

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! ūüėČ

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. ūüôā

“Unable to Refuse a Good Deal”…Or “I Have a Problem”?

I wish it were cut and dry, but it’s not.

Here’s the sitch:

I fell in love with this bag when I saw Kristin Cavallari running around The Grove with it:

It’s the Kirsten satchel by Alexander Wang in granite. ¬†I didn’t know this at first. ¬†I didn’t learn who made the bag until I emailed the Possessionista¬†and she wrote a blog post about me. ¬†Yep, here it is:

Yeah, I know. ¬†I’m a freak. ¬†Anyway, I started a mad search for the purse. ¬†Know what I found out? ¬†It was $945.00. ¬†Yeah. ¬†So I tried everything for this baby:

I looked for coupon codes, I searched eBay. ¬†I even asked the newly-divorced guys at work if I could clean their house once a week for a year in exchange for the bag, to which they replied, “That’d be nice, but I can’t spend that much on a bag.”

So I pouted.  I found the Kirsten Satchel on eBay in the taupe color (I wanted granite) and began a bidding war that proceeded to dominate my weekend.  I pouted some more.

And then Bergdorf Goodman sold out of my precious bag.  And so did Neiman Marcus.  And I gave up.

But I was jonesing for a new bag. ¬†JONESING. ¬†So…I found one. ¬†I really wanted this bag for a long time, but couldn’t justify the $448:

I ended up buying this one instead for a damn good price:

But then I wanted the Alexander Wang bag…a lot because of the color. ¬†So I began to hunt for a green bag–olive green to be specific, and since I already had a brown bag, I compromised and (as much as it verifies that I have a problem) I purchased this:

FOR 50% OFF THE ORIGINAL PRICE!¬† And it’s a beautiful green color. ¬†Thanks to my, Tweeps, especially, the Country Man’s Wife!

That either makes me a helluva deal-finder…or a compulsive handbag-buying bitch. ¬†Let’s go with the latter?

I’m a Sucker for a Man in…

Aside from the physical features of a man that I find to be the sexiest, there are certain types of clothing that men wear that will also turn my head.  And when I say turn my head, I mean make me reach out and grab a wall for stability.  So today, I salute the White T-shirt.

Paired with jeans, khakis, work pants, whatever.¬† There’s something about a man in a white t-shirt, and I feel like I’m repeating myself (oh yeah, here it is), but DAMN. ¬†It’s clean, it’s a little clingy in all the right places, and it usually picks up a man’s scent pretty quickly, so if you steal it to sleep in, you’re all set.

I think it’s something about how white t-shirts are easily dirtied, too…so if he’s been working, it’s pretty evident. ¬†(Re-phrased for Jarvis, even though I know this will still offend him.)

They’re simple and classic and wonderful.

I know it’s not much of a post today, but if you can look at Paul Newman in a white t-shirt and tell me your day isn’t a little better, then I’ll make sure to compensate you tomorrow in a much better, more exciting blog post.
