Tutta Del Passato Overalls
spent a lot of my teenage days in overalls; they were a cool
alternative to disco polyester for the neo-hippies of the day. I wore
mine with an old filigree pin found at the Portobello flea market,
pinned on the bib, for a touch of Victorian Dandyism!
So, when I saw those, I had to revisit the memory… these overalls have
been adorned with 2 variations of the same type of Kenyan fabric, both
variations on a very warm palette of bright orange and yellow. Some
tassels and beads punctuate the rhythm of your walk. Multicolor beading
on the legs, bib and back pockets,
The only accent is a wonderful pin I found at a consignment store. I
was told it comes from Eastern Europe, a country possibly starting with
an “A”… Albania? Armenia? Anatolia? In any case, the pin is a basket of
sorts adorned with 2 doves. You can actually unscrew the basket open
and add some charms. There are quite a few charms: oranges,
pomegranates, some kind of water ladle that might be used for
ablutions, and an urn. For some reason, I can’t help thinking that this
charm holder-pin has some religious meaning...
The finished piece is a great multicultural wink to stylish comfort.
