In my last post ( read it here ) I talked about trying to find an outfit with bell sleeves and was partly interested in a romper with a bell sleeve. Well, my search for a romper in the Fall in NJ ultimately led me also trying on jumpsuits. Prior to this month, I had all but given up on jumpsuits. I had tried on too many to count without finding one that was right. Project Runway was fresh in my mind and I was trying to stuff anyway so I figured "why not?" and tried on a few. As usual, they weren't fitting. My body is still a weird size and I am petite, only 5'2", so it's hard to find pieces that aren't too long without needing major alterations.
Lo and behold, as I was leaving the mall empty handed, an 80% off sign at Macy's caught my eye. I stopped to glance through the rack just in case and grabbed a couple dresses to try on. At that point I was desperate! I also grabbed two jumpsuits. I didn't check labels or prices. At that point as long as it fit and looked ok then it was going home with me.
It was a miracle! One of the jumpsuits fit me perfectly! It didn't need hemming, is comfortable, and flatters my changing body. I actually did a happy dance in the fitting room. The jumpsuit is by Nicole Miller from her Nicole line. It was marked down to $15.99!
I ended up wearing it to the wedding I attended in California. I didn't get many good pictures of myself but here is the best:
I planned on wearing black, patent leather heels but at the last minute switched to sandals because the ceremony was outdoors in a grassy area. I was afraid of tripping while holding my baby if I wore heels. i don't think the sandals are awful- I just always think heels are better! I accessorized with a sparkly headband from Forever 21 and my sparkliest earrings. A necklace would have been good too but impossible with a baby. My lipstick is Mac's Russian Red which is one of their matte shades. I really like it.
