Work Outfit Challenge - Day 141.

Today I'm going to take some of you back in time. Back to the time when tencel was high on the wish list of every tween ... and before that term even came into existence. A trip to Just Jeans with mum would always result in a request for the newest tencel product on the market. I was super lucky to have a pair of light denim jeans AND, wait for it ... a pair of black tencel long overalls.

How stylin' was I?

I was DEVASTATED when a classmate from primary school decided he would be cool and give me a wedgie at a grade eight social. My oh-so-cool overalls ripped and I think I cried. Yep, I was more upset about my beloved overalls being broken than getting a wedgie in front of a whole bunch of my peers.

yep, I'm one cool dude ...

Oh, in case you are totally confused, I'll let you in on the tencel connection. These new additions to my wardrobe (the pants) are 100% tencel baby. Oddly, though they don't feel as soft and flowy (oh, and COOL) as the ones I sported back in 1996.

I remember tencel - I think I wore my baggy tencel pants to the East 17 concert.....with on oversized tee. I thought I was so cool. I also slept outside the entertainment centre for the concert. Hardcore;)

I had forgotten all about tencel until I read yesterday's post :) I can't remember owning anything in tencel but I do remember it being very soft. :)

I had numerous tencel items in my cupboard when it was in and then have to admit to having a burgundy tencel skirt that I wore until a few years ago.... sad but true... LOL
