I has been approximately twenty years since the last time I wore overalls. I think I was a freshman in High School when everybody was using this iconic piece in Brazil. If you really wanted to belong with the cool kids you needed to wear the brand Redley.
They must have made a fortune in the 90s. Everything from jeans, t-shirts, and shoes was absolutely a rule for girls and boys. I remember me and my friends in waiting lists for a pair of leather sandals that we couldn’t exist without. I’m pretty sure the US must have had something similar. (If you haven’t guessed my age yet there are more clues to come)
Well the years went by and I thought I would never ever put on overalls again. Well maybe in some celebrate-the-90s party but never in day-to-day life. Obviously I was wrong. As soon as the temperature started to rise I just couldn’t picture myself in leggings.
Let me explain. I’m a hands on mother, riding my bike around Hoboken, going to the market, playing with my daughter in playgrounds, all of this involves a lot of movement and the last thing I need is something disturbing me.
So now the overalls are back. There is no Silverchair shirt, My So-Called Life on TV, Jarred Leto on my bedroom wall, Jagged Little Pill on repeat (well this I still have), and now I have to figure out a way to use it in a more adult way. I’m accepting suggestions!
So, let’s get to the real challenge! Have you guessed my age?
