what i wore

welcome to “what i wore” at the pleated poppy!  share with me your fashion posts and we can inspire each other!  i started this originally as motivation to get out of my daily uniform of jammies or sweats, but now i am encouraged and held accountable to put a few extra minutes aside for myself and try new things.  i’d love for you to join me!

what i wore at the pleated poppy

back in the late 90’s, i lived in overalls.  i think i owned at least 5 pairs – denim, corduroy, velvet (dressy overalls?).  while i’m not sure if i can pull off traditional overalls anymore, i found these that i love!  i first saw them on a couple friends and ordered them immediately from urban outfitters, even though they were pretty pricey at $69.  unfortunately, the fit of the pair i tried didn’t work for me.  the sides scooped so low that even with a really long t-shirt you could still see inside the pants (not good) and the hips were wide and stuck out a bit.  their fit was not at all like those my friends wore. maybe it was a random ill-cut pair?  so sadly i returned them.  then a couple days later i spotted these on shein and decided that it was worth the $15 to try them.  so glad i did because they are great!  the fabric is not nearly as nice as the linen of the uo overalls, but not bad either.  i haven’t washed them yet, so theres a chance these might completely fall apart in the wash.  i’m planning on hand washing and air drying.
