you may remember right before the holidays, i released my very first design collaboration with only child! i’ve always wanted to design my own clothing, so this was a really fun and exciting opportunity. and this jumpsuit is what we came up with! though i can’t really take much credit because the design actually came about from the comments and feedback i received while sharing the whole process on instagram. if anything, it’s really more of a design collaboration with all of you! i was so uncertain on which direction to take that i put things up for a vote and the overwhelming response was for this jumpsuit design. picking the fabric was a tough choice, but we all agreed that denim would be a really great option because it’s durable and works for all seasons. case in point: i wore this layered over a turtleneck and paired with a wool jacket this winter. but now that it’s springtime and the temperatures are warming up, i’ve been wearing it on it’s own or layered under a lighter jacket.
before embarking on this collaboration with only child, i really had no idea what to expect. all i knew was that i was super excited to be involved in the design process, and to be working with such an awesome oakland-based designer like haley tucker. i had a certain level of confidence because i got so much helpful feedback from everyone on instagram, but i was too anxious to think too much beyond that. so it wasn’t until the first few orders were being made that i became overwhelmed with excitement. it is such a good feeling to work on a project like this and to know that there will be people walking around wearing a design that i helped to create! i’ve seen a meme floating around that says something to the effect of, “when you make a purchase from a small business, an actual person does a happy dance.” and i can personally tell you that is 100% true in my case.
so today i thought i’d give back a little bit and offer you the chance to win your very own only child x calivintage jumpsuit! i even took it out for another spin to show you a different way to wear it. i am so pleased that it ended up being the versatile type of wardrobe basic that i love to have in my own closet.

if you’ve been following along on instagram, then you may have noticed that i’ve been working on a design collaboration with oakland-based designer, haley tucker, of only child. i’ve always been interested in design, so i was beyond excited when she asked if i’d like to make something together. i have no formal training, so the entire experience has been such a cool opportunity for me to get involved and to see everything that goes behind taking a design from concept to reality. we started out with a few different ideas based on some of her current selection, and haley did the hard work of sewing-up some prototypes for me to test out. but i think my level of enthusiasm was a bit too high because i wanted to make everything haha. so i went to instagram to get some help crowd-sourcing my final decision. i probably shouldn’t have been surprised, but we got an overwhelming response to this jumpsuit, so we knew we had to make it! and you know how much i love a good jumpsuit. i think i now officially have one for every day of the week, and i am still not tired of them!
so here it is: the only child x calivintage jumpsuit made of a beautiful mid-wash, 100% cotton denim. the design is a limited-edition, meant to be a seasonless addition to your wardrobe. it’s a bit chilly, so i styled it with a turtleneck and the madelyn wool coat for now, but it’s also going to be a lot of fun worn simply with a pair of sandals and a straw hat when the weather warms up. it has been months in coming with lots of care taken into the process, so i really hope that you love it as much as i do!
