Thriftventuring...A List to Thrift by: Item #2 Overalls and 70's Shirts

So I had hoped to reveal my patio project
today.....but alas...it was not to be. April showers visited last week and I was unable to finish painting all my furniture!!
So...how 'bout sharing another item in my "Thriftventuring...A List to Thrift by" series!

Do you know what makes JDP smile?

Overalls!!!! Long, pedal pusher length ,short,shorter....hot pants short(worn with tights of course!).
I LOVE Overalls! They have been my go to Mommy uniform for almost 15 years (wait a minute...my oldest baby can NOT be almost 15!).
Did I mention the thrift stores are BRIMMING with them...and for practically NO money??

They pair rather perfectly with crazy 70's shirts. This fabooooo "waves crashing on rocks" print ....recently thrifted for a couple of bucks.... is a new personal fave.
I have always believed in styling them in unexpected ways as seen here and here in past "My Own Vintage Fashion Magazine" spreads.
Hey I think its time for a Spring-time issue of my on-line vintage zine!

The hubs has always found my sense of style both fascinating and perplexing.
What do you think of overalls?
Happy Tuesday and happy thriftventuring!
