100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (6.08.08)


wardrobe remix, originally uploaded by La Meow.

My favorite post in the 100% Thrifted flickr pool this week was hands down La Meow in her vintage denim floral overalls. I am a BIG fan of overalls and as I exclaimed in her comments, these are probably the most perfect little overalls I’ve ever seen! I adore the cut of them which is quite unusual with a small bib and slim straight leg. I just love it, and a dainty little flower pattern to boot! The cream colored tee and matching shoes allow the overalls to stand out for full appreciation and the big sunnies add just the right amount of flair. Perfect outfit for a sunny day bike ride, on a sweet bike as well!

While this is one of La Meow’s more subdued outfits, I should also mention that I am a huge fan of her rare talent for taking pieces (mostly from the 80’s and early 90’s) that would look downright wacky on most of us and working her creative styling magic to produce the most amazing outfits. Two things come to mind when I think of her: acid wash denim and florals, and when she puts the two together magic is bound to ensue. She rocks the high waist acid wash tapered jeans like no other and is the absolute queen of floral denim. I am constantly amazed by her fun and original style and always look forward to her posts. Check out her vintage eBay store for fun unique pieces of your own!

Wow, those overalls are amazing. I really admire people who can wear something so look-at-me and unusual (as you do, Missa! :) ).
