How to wear overalls

One of the things I love about vintage clothing is the uniqueness, perhaps these perfect broken in overalls. While shopping for vintage goods at Design Archives Emporium here in North Carolina (Greensboro), I found these rusted color overalls hanging in a corner and I believe they were calling my name. I love clothes with movement, so I knew these babies were right up my alley. Next thing I knew I was wearing them with a couple of modern pieces in order to update their look.

Una de las cosas que más me atrae de la ropa antigua es que son únicas, por ejemplo estos overoles anchos y perfectamente suaves debido a su edad. Mientras que andaba de compras en Design Archives Emporium aquí en las Carolinas, encontré estos overoles colgados en una esquina y la verdad es que me pareció que estaban llamando a mi nombre. A mi me encanta la ropa con mucho movimiento y por eso yo sabia de antemano que estos petos eran para mi. Cuando menos acordé, los llevaba puestos con accesorios modernos para darles un toque actual.
