One question that repeatedly arises in regards to my blog is “Are all those clothes your own?” Depending on who’s asking, I either sheepishly or proudly reply affirmatively. Yes, every piece I’ve posted thus far has been straight from my own closet. Though I’ve bought a new item or twenty since I launched the blog, nothing has even been bought specifically for the blog. I do think about whether or not something will photograph well, but that does not determine the purchase. There are things in my closet you will never see here, simply because they don’t look good on camera. You are probably either impressed or disgusted at this point. And rightly so. Believe it or not, you have only witnessed a fraction of my wardrobe. The reason I bring this up though is because today is the first day that I repeat a main item. Yes, I’ve worn the same shoes, necklaces and jackets throughout, but not the headliner. But, I thought these overalls deserved a repeat performance. My first overalls post (seen here) was actually one of my most successful posts of all time. Apparently, there is a huge audience when it comes to overalls. Who knew? So, why not give them an encore? I made the sequel a little more (LA) winter appropriate with a longish sleeve shirt and booties. Heck, if this post goes as well as the first one, overalls may become a triple-threat on The LA Survival Guide.
