YES, THEY’RE BACK! We all had a pair when we were little. And probably wore them with some teeny tiny leggings in some form of velour, or floral print, and a pair of Doodles (you know, those canvas little shoes with the t-bar strap that came in loads of different prints?!). Thats right, I’m talking about DUNGAREES. Or overalls if you absolutely must (bf had no idea what dungarees were. Maverick.)
I had spotted a pair on Sabo Skirt, a site I was introduced to in Australia (see my post on it here), and considered buying a pair, but concluded the blonde tanned skinny model was probably the reason they looked so good, and waiting weeks on end for them to be shipped would probably end up in an evening of self loathing and throwing handfuls of chocolate at the mirror before stuffing my face and drowning in a chorus of fat slurs at myself. But when I spotted a pair in Primark for £12, I thought they were worth a shot. I won’t lie, it took me, NO JOKE, three trips into the store to actually get around to buying them. Each time, I picked them up, walked around with them, and then changed my mind. But tonight, I took the plunge! (Mainly because I panicked when I saw that stocks were depleting and I thought time might be running out!).
OKAY SO I ACTUALLY ADORE THEM. Do I wish my thighs were thinner? OF COURSE. But hey, that’s something I think I’ll always have to live with. Yet still, elephant thighs aside, I love these bad boys. They’ll be ideal for summer with a bandeau underneath, or a white or striped tee! I’ve definitely got my smug face on – the one where I get a complete bargain that I wasnt expecting to pull off.
Topshop has some similar pairs too, in faded wash denim, and I’ve seen them in Forever 21 as well, I think, but to be honest I’d recommend grabbing a pair of Primark’s finest. They have them in loads of colours, not just denim. I’m almost considering snapping up a white pair. Who would have thought it!!
Please tell me someone else has jumped on the dungaree bandwagon like me!!!
Here they are!
Anyway, late night blog posts must be short and sweet! I need sleeps!
