“opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” // t. edison
do you remember 1989?
i have the rather unfortunate capacity to recall pretty much everything, and so, 1989 is rather clear in my mind – and let me tell you, it was terrible. it came replete with braces, a disaster of hair that grew in curly after years of wavy, braces, and let’s be very honest – rather regrettable skin. adolescence, obviously, is an exercise in humility.
yet, there is one relic from that time that has not escaped my sensibilities, (though my arse would never dare to wear it now); the overall, but closer to the point – the denim-short overall. oh, i loved it so.
oh yes. i wore them – with hi-top chucks and a bonne bell red lipstick that clashed with the yellowing of my ‘clear’ braces. with this remembrance there is a faint whiff of nostalgia, for both my used-to-be slim hips and the knowledge that with the jumpsuit/overall trend, i shan’t be climbing aboard – but if you’ve got the gumption and a slender bum – you really should hitch a ride.
