Durango street style: A dress that’s in-between

by Patty Templeton

Dark tousled hair and a sly smile mark Janae Hunderman. When DGO caught up with the blastedly brilliant, absolutely fantastic Hunderman, she was awaiting the badass cellist Russick Smith to start his set at the Diamond Belle Saloon for the iAm Music Festival. She wore what could only be considered the best damn dress of the fest.

“I got it in Peru at a shop called Hilo run by a German woman. She has her sewing machine set up and she makes everything right there. You walk in and there’s one little room, like 20 by 20 and then maybe a side room about the same size. Everything in there was cool stuff.

I tried on this dress and I really liked it. I saw this and I was like, “Pockets! Yes.” It’s very utilitarian and, yet, I wore it to a wedding last weekend. I tried it on and told the owner I wanted the dress and she said, ‘Put it on again, I want to see you in it.’ I was like, ‘OK …’ I put it on again. She was like, ‘I don’t think it fits you just right.’ And I was like, ‘Shoot …’ and then she took my measurements and fixed it to fit my shape. Which is so cool.

It’s sturdy as heck. I get a lot of comments on my style, but I’ve been in education a long time and so my wardrobe is either workwear or outdoor gear. I struggle with what to wear on the weekend, the in-between. This dress is strange because it’s dressy but it’s not fancy-fancy. It’s that in-between.”
