jumpsuits, overalls, or onesies
good things come in small packages



Alyson Walsh

I love jumpsuits but mostly in theory. I have never been able to find one that fit me in a comfortable way. Mostly it’s the rise of most jumpsuits that just is not right. Whether you call them jumpsuits, overalls, or onesies, I don’t think my fit problems are unusual.

The crotch drops, I feel like a hip hop artist, and my thighs chaff. I’ve tried to use a belt to hold things up, but that doesn’t work, and it kind of defeats the style purpose of the jumpsuit. In any case,

I think there are all sorts of fit problems with jumpsuits.

Another person who loves jumpsuits and wears them better than anyone is Alyson Walsh of That’s Not My Age

I think it may have something to do with her height, but in any case it works for her. And that’s the thing I’ve always believed: everything will work on someone, but not everyone can wear everything. You can quote me.

Perhaps my last-ditch effort to find a jumpsuit, a onesie for adults really, is above? It seems to have more of an actual waist to start with, which tends to suit me better, and it also comes with that waist-cincher.

I like that it’s 100% corduroy, which would make it a more realistic choice for winter wear. And I also like the soft, neutral color. Last ditch effort from Ajaie Alaie.

This ring, from Badger’s Velvet, is similar to this one by Pascale Monvoisin

I don’t know what it is about this style of ring that attracts me this much? Maybe it’s the daintiness? Maybe it’s the antique feel these rings have? Perhaps I want to imagine that I found this or that ring in at the flea market in Paris? 

I don’t know, but I do know that we are all mysteriously drawn to certain styles, colors, shapes, textures, and substances. Sometimes it’s a matter of what we’ve been exposed to, what we learned to love. Sometimes it’s a matter of nostalgia.

But at other times, it’s like falling in love. You see it and whether or not you can ever have it, it’s somehow yours.

Sometimes it’s a city, at other times a ring. A cat in a window? A scarf around someones shoulders? I love that feeling. You?
