If I told you that I found these overalls at a hair salon in Winnipeg, you probably wouldn’t believe me… but it’s true! The Edward Carriere salon is a hybrid beauty/boutique. You may recall that I posted about them last year. More and more salon owners are offering an array of clothing and accessories for sale in order to compensate for the decrease in sales of hair products due to beauty supply stores and online shopping. I, for one, am happy about this, because I don’t know that I would have otherwise found these!
The last time I wore a pair of overalls, must have been 1989, and I am not joking. They were not the most flattering of clothing items and were difficult to wear. Most of us wore them loose and baggy and no matter the vantage point, they did nothing for us. Fast forward to 2015, and voila, this version is simply fabulous. Black denim updates the look from faded denim work coveralls, to out to dinner chic-ness. They are fitted at the waist and the bib lies flat which elongates the torso. You can wear them to work with a simple white blouse and a delicate necklace, or add some vibrant jewelry (like this bib), and take them out on the town.
