I am loathe to admit that I spent the greater part of the early-nineties in a pair of worn out Liberty overalls that I bought at a local thrift store for about two bucks. What can I say? I'm blaming it all on Marissa Tomei for looking impossible cute in hers while skating around the ice in Untamed Heart. Over the past year or so we've all noticed the slow rebirth of nineties fashion. First it was the floral babydoll dresses, then Doc Martens and if I'm guessing correctly overalls may be next (or maybe they already are and I'm just behind the times!). I've seen them popping up in all sorts of places over the past few weeks. But the ones I'm seeing are not my old beat-up, paint stained Liberties - they seem a bit more grown up and tailored this time around. Even though I've often sworn I'll never go back to wearing things I wore in my teenage years, I've spied a few pair that have me rethinking that.
