A Retro Denim Lady Date

My junior year of college myself & my roommates Kelli & Kelley had an obsession with our Gap overall capris. And, yes. Would wear them on the same day. In public. I swore I'd never make such an embarassing fashion faux pass again. So when I heard someone declare that, "Overalls are back" -- I thought, "Yeah. Right." On who? 6'0" models who can pull off the most ridiculous of trends?

Well then sweet as sugar 5'4" Anna of Tulip Louise showed up for our lady date in overalls. And proved me wrong. Y'all, does she not look SO adorable?!

Meanwhile, I was proving myself wrong. Two years ago I would never have worn this outfit because it didn't show off my figure, my waist. I never wanted to dress in flowy clothes because I thought they weren't as flattering. The truth is, starting Dean Street Society has given me such confidence that I now see how self-conscious I was before.

Now, I realize that people aren't analyzing how thin I look. They see a well-put together outfit with chic details & that's what stands out, that's what makes me look lovely. Wear flowy if you want to. But the devilshly good style is in the details: Chic, nice fabrics, well fitted, cooly accessorized. Those details are how easy 70's boho chic, still looks put together professional.
