TREND ALERT: OVERALL DRESSES


 I'M V V V EXCITED.

for two reasons:
1. I'm finally utilizing my merchandising profession & launching TREND ALERTS on NICOLE LEIGH.
2. my favorite childhood outfit is on trend: the overall dress.

since starting my career, I've experienced many different fashion realms and throughout all of them, one thing stayed true: my love for trends, following & sometimes chasing them. I was always most fascinated with how they trickle through social and economic classesstarting w/ the high-end, couture customer and then ending, years later, with the price-conscious, discount shopper. 

I always knew I'd end up merchandising, but I never knew it'd be for an e-commerce company. pleasantly surprised, though! now, I can't imagine myself working in any other industry but the online one. it's so exciting to have trends at my fingertips, literally.

now, onto the overall dress and why I love it. this reoccuring trend is perfect for the girl, like myself, whose not totally sold on wearing dresses. the chunky straps & mini denim combo creates the perfect tomboy feel. 

dress it up, or dress it down. 
put a leotard underneath, or just a bralette.
wear it w/ sneakers, wear it w/ boots.
& whatever you do, always remember that the 90s were the 💣
