On Overalls

April 11, 2012

Recently, an unusual infatuation with onesie styled denim has overcome me. Blame it on a looming Coachella or simply the mere fact that you can take the girl off the Man Repeller, but you can’t take the Man Repeller off the girl. Website MR vs philosophical entity MR in case you’re confused by the sentiment I tried to convey in that previous sentence and I suspect you must be. The fact of the matter is, rain or shine, day or night, all I want from life is overalls. Below you’ll find two outfits that may help get the wheels of your closet moving should you find yourself in a similar predicament and enable your, you know, life. The rain or shine portion of it is really more just because denim gets wet and that’s okay. Day or night depicts a casual vs. fancy dichotomy that gives longevity to the over-all experience at hand. That’s a play on word(s).

Overalls by NSF, muscle tee from Topshop, sneakers by Superga x The Row

Scenario A: Caught in the act while doing jumping jacks, Naomi wanted this photo to embody the playfulness of decorating a large portion of your body in denim. They just sort of take you back to the nineties where jumping rope and jacks then playing jacks was a day well done. I think we did alright. Lots of skin remains shown but look to the nearest man and gain an opinion. Does he want to bone me? I speculate not–and I say this in confidence pulling from personal experience.

Now, I’m not one to leave an outfit un-accessorized, enter the fancy.

In transit to Scenario B: Look at me, look at me, I have eyes. The hills have eyes. Look at me, look at me, my feet look like two tiers of mushroom haircuts. What? You don’t get that yet, but you will really soon.

Dannijo necklaces, Giambattista Valli shoes, Ferragamo blazer, Valentino clutch

See? Mushroom haircut feet. The thing about this clutch, while I’ve never thrown up inside of it, I did win it–yes, win it–at an internal sale Valentino hosted while I was interning there. I paid something like $150 dollars for it. It retailed for a billion, which Facebook could have afforded–Instagram now too, but me, not so much. On to the photo though: I recently tweeted a picture of these overalls and called them my most offensive conquest of 2012. It may not seem that way from current view, it’s actually quite trendy, but you know what they say, when you assume you make an ass out of both you and me. So…
Feast your eyes on this saggy ass! The funny thing about presumable negative space when it’s between a chunk of denim and your butt is that it’s not so negative. I think this mission ends successfully repelled. Go on, resume living. Actually, please first look at the contenders up against one another.

Which do you prefer? Tell me. I have to know.

    Humm, picture N° 1 ? No, number 2, definitely ! That reminds me of this uncomfortable pregnancy overall I had… I think I'm gonna cut it into a shorter version ! Thank you for your wonderful inspirations !

    Pretty cool paired with the jacket and heels!

    I love the look on the right particularly because it introduces color, but also because the one on the left would constantly remind me of my 'look' circa Babysitters Club movie (aka Schyler Fisk's summertime outfit when she wasn't wearing oversized striped tees and backwards baseball caps waiting for Dad at a suburban street corner).

    The first one is more like "I'm 10 years old, again" but it's pretty cool and it looks comfortable. The second one is really trendy and original, I like the idea of making the overalls an elegant garment ;)

    First photo…..thumbs down. Overalls. No. Please. Don't. But when tastefully covered almost entirely by other pieces of clothing and accessories, it's not so bad. But out of all the wonderful things in your closet, surely you don't need these bad-boys? and my bad-boys I mean completely, utterly ugly, and by that I mean 100% Man-Repelling. Congratulations. You've done it again. haha

Love how you turned something so "I-will-never-wear overalls-again!" into something stylish and a possible full on resurgence………P.S. where can I find the DANNIJO necklace in the 2nd image (not in Shopbop or DJ website)?

    I remember when overalls made a comeback in juniors clothing 5 years ago. I guess its not so far away from a romper. I can see these making another comeback. more like a denim romper then overalls

    You never fail to make me laugh! Definitely man repelling with both of these looks. I'm partial to the casual one because I don't think overalls can be successfully dressed up… but you did a hell of a job trying. Looks cute with the blazer and fancy accessories, but something about denim onesies just doesn't do it for me.

    The second look is super cute, but I feel that the overalls just want to be overalls and covering them with a blazer is denying them of their real essence. Plus you look like 15 years old in the first one! I love it :)

    Last time I wore shortalls- well all I could really remember was what a pain in the arse it was to pee, maybe that's why I quickly disposed of them.

    Left: will surely make it a cinch to order off the kids menu and nail that job as a train conductor
    Right: Guys won't even think twice about the hassle of unhooking those straps off, they'll just jump at the opportunity

    So maybe you can think of a hybrid between the two? haha

    By far the second one. The blazer is much more of a refined take on the classic trend. The shirt underneath on the first outfit seems a bit of a farmer type of look instead of chic. Not that that is ever a bad thing! But I truly do love the more sophisticated look.

    How the fuck do you look good in dungarees? That's what us Brits call overalls. Dungarees is a much more satisfying word in my opinion. But, either way, you look good in them and I would prefer to have your legs. Big up the 90s. I had a smashing blue and white full length pair with big roses on them as a kid. Loved a dungaree.

    Both are cool, in different ways. I must say although that the clutch is the MOST grotesque thing I have seen in a long time, it looks like a cheap £1 bag from a market and not in a good way. I'd ditch the bag…

    I say go with the look with the blazer, LOL

    I love you for this! I lived in overalls in the 90's , yes I was in elementary school but that's beside the point, ever since then I've had a small hope that one day they'd come back. I don't think I'd have the balls to rock a pair of overalls today, but i love that you did!

    That said i like the 2nd one, since I did 90's playground in the 90's on a playground.

    The first one is a really fun look which I could imagine myself (or not) wearing when I'm hanging out with friends (or more likely as I wander the streets alone). But the second, dressed up, look is perfect! Although it might need to be disqualified from the competition because it doesn't really look like you're wearing overalls.

    I remember overalls in the 90's AND 70's. Any woman with large-ish breasts should stay away! That said, I wish I never threw away my painter's pants. They always follow overalls in trends. ;)

    This is the best thing ever. I can't stop laughing. To be honest- look one- it's super cute actually. Plus I have this thing when I see people in overalls…I think wow, they are cool, creative, and I bet there busy doing projects like painting or building in a really swanky loft space somewhere. Which is really irrational. But I think it everytime…

    They both work! However, I guess I'm of the mind that if you're going to rock overalls you should do it all out. Thus, the muscle tee and flats.
