I'm Bringing Back The Overall

I'm not blogging tonight. I've already had three glasses of Merlot in bed while watching an episode of Ugly Betty I had on Tivo, and I'm just tuckered out.
But here's a really cute picture of my friend Erica and I, one of my best friends, when we were 15 and 16 years old, respectively. I'm on the left (duh) and I'm wearing my high school staple, overalls. As a fashion designer, I'd just like to say, I would have brought back these comfortable suckers last year had I not been fired for, oh what to they call that, a lack of style.

Side Note: Sophomore year, circa 1997, I had railroad stripe overalls from the Gap that I wore with a pale yellow T-shirt, and although I know this is a look now favored by boys of around 12-18 months, it was adorable, and I'd wear it tomorrow if I could.

Regardless, I miss overalls, and often stare lovingly into this photo that reminds me my youth was at least filled with comfortable denim, unlike the skinny jeans I wore yesterday that were so tight I swear I had to pee every five seconds.

See?

Aren't overalls the obvious choice here? My bladder is thanking me already...

  1. I missed the overalls too but I found an alternative, look for pantsuits... very comfortable though I haven't seen one in denims yet.

    I can relate with the skinny thingy, oh well, sometimes we do sacrifice comfort just to look good. whew!

  2. I think it is hysterical a fashion designer is a fan of the overall. It's nice to know that people in the fashion world appreciate comfort.

    Thoughts on the yoga pant? I live in them.

  3. I had four pairs of awesome overalls: light denim, dark denim, brown courdoroy, beige courdoroy. In 1997, I was in college, rocking my brown courdory overalls to frat parties. Damn, I was cool. But not as cool as you.

  10. I used to have several pairs of overalls back in the day. To be honest, I don't really miss them, since they weren't too flattering!

    Look at you, little miss model in your pic!

  13. I had a motherload collection of overalls! Shorts, capris, pants, and even...dresses. It was the ugliest and most certainly the comfiest years of my life.

  14. I always love overalls too. Every time they come back in some form or another i always end up buying a pair but never end up having the guts to wear em. The last pair I bought was with a skirt not pants and yeah, they never got worn either!!
