As I wrote in my last post, I had a moment about a month ago. It was a moment where I was stopped dead in my tracks and thought, “Oh, I want that!” I described the moment using Cher Horowitz. When Cher finally came to the realization that she likes her half-brother Josh (I know they’re not blood related but that’s kind of weird), she sees a dress in a store’s front window and thinks, “Oh, I wonder if they have that in my size?” My moment didn’t occur on a shi-shi California street and I definitely wasn’t wearing my prettiest garb. I was on the elliptical and was wearing my workout clothes when the girl running on the treadmill in front of me was flipping through a magazine and had stopped on a page that had images of overalls. As soon as I saw it, I jumped off the elliptical, right then and there, and went on a hunt for my own pair.
And I found my own pair – a white pair of overalls from Anthropologie. I paired it with an H&M tee and statement that was also from Anthropologie. To top off the entire look, I wore dark brown lipstick. The hot pink lipstick trend has been getting a little old.
The look is very fashion forward but I think I can pull it off because I have put so much thought into the outfit. Also, the ensemble will shift very well from summer to fall/winter – instead of wearing open toe wedges as I do now, I’ll wear booties when the weather changes.
On the fence as to which overalls I like better. The denim overalls or the white overalls? Although the denim look is fashion forward just like the white look, the denim look is a little more down to earth, don’t you think? And that’s how I like to think of myself – down to earth and not so snobby shi-shi.
