FASHION FRIDAY: Go for a Romp(er)

Fashion Friday #fashionfriday

My friend Megan and I have been hung up on rompers lately. There’s something about the freedom of having your shirt attached to your pants. You could do anything: climb a tree, do the can-can, drop-kick a hamster.

Obviously, it was time to find out what our Etsy romper options were. Here we go!

Clover Romper
Ken sold separately.

Here is a romper for those whose breasts defy gravity. Seller jordanderuiter clearly has a stockpile of lanky, doe-eyed brunettes just lying around to try on her designs.

Blue Jumpsuit
Mysteries of the universe: Where does her torso begin and end?

I don’t know why rompers are called jumpsuits once they have legs, but I guess we’re moving on to jumpsuits. Try this one from seller KSClothing on for size. I’m not sure, but I think it’s made out of blue raspberry cotton candy.

"Demure" Jumpsuit
If this is demure, I am a nun.

Then there’s this “demure” red option from seller ovonion. I suppose the fashion industry’s definition of demure has changed from “modest” or “concealed” to “only shows a little bit of nipple on its way to exposing your entire stomach”.

Black Jumpsuit
See that drop-waist? WINNING.

To finish on a high note, I’ll show you my favorite of all. This classy option from seller MDSewingAtelier reminds me of a silky black blouse I once bought from America’s fine purveyor of fashion trends: Target.

The difference is that I wouldn’t leave this jumpsuit in the backseat of my car, bleaching in the sun for months while I pretended I was going to return it.

Do you own a romper/jumpsuit?? Can I try it on?

 

 

FASHION FRIDAY: Beat the Summer Swelter

Fashion Friday #fashionfriday

The mercury hit 10,000 degrees here yesterday in New Orleans. All the termites came to party; won’t you join us too?

When just walking outside feels like a giant wet hand pressing down on your face, it’s best to wear as little as possible. My minimal picks from Etsy’s summer styles:

Romp like it’s your job

Did someone say “Beyonce”? No, they said “white romper,” and I need to get my eyes checked because HELLO, COMFORT. This vintage ’70s romper from seller BTMVintage is just the ticket for fun summer activities. Like grass stains. And sprinklers.

Luggage bins are located overhead to the left and right.

If you prefer not to combine your shirts and pants, you’re probably someone who wears dresses. Cue this kimono-style summer frock from seller lapetitenina. As the model demonstrates in the photo, the generous cut of this outfit allows for quick and easy pit-sweat drying.

In other countries, they call these “thongs”.

Dust off that athlete’s foot cream and get ready to exfoliate your heels, because these unisex leather sandals from seller PennyHandmade are not hiding anything. On the upside (literally), the tops of your feet will get an interesting tan.

This posture will eventually ruin her spine.
This posture will eventually wreck her spine.

Finally, should the heat slacken a few degrees from, say, solar temperatures to more of a Jupiter-surface range, you can don this open-weave sweater made by seller Eloiseshop.  Or, as the seller suggests, just put it on to make your outfit edgier, no matter what you’re wearing. Personally, I’m thinking it’ll really spice up my pajamas.

Now you have all the tools you need to survive summer in New Orleans, LA, USA. Next step: daiquiris.
