The Hunt For Overalls

If you follow Fringueuse on Pinterest, then you know that overalls hold a special place in my heart. They have since I was in middle school. I couldn’t be more thrilled that for Spring’13, designers are reproducing the look for us grown ups in a myriad of fabrics (velvet, silk, leather and denim, of course) and styles. Similar to my current fascination with the jumpsuit, overalls are an easy breezy option to getting dressed. Although, I know this look isn’t for everyone. Overalls are an acquired taste and not everyone is fond of looking like a giant toddler. Personally, I can’t get enough of them!

I’m on the hunt for the perfect denim version. I once found that exact dreamy pair at a vintage store in Boston: form-fitting, the perfect shade of dark indigo and wide legs. For some really stupid reason, I left them at the store convinced I could always find a better pair. Well, it’s been three years and I have yet to find one that even comes close. Not to mention at such a freaking steal ($50!!). The other day I was on my search, again, this time online. I landed on bohemian vintage shopping site SpanishMossShop.com. I am happy to report that they are currently carrying a small selection of vintage overalls.
