Jumping on a Jumpsuit Challenge!




Sometimes the stupidest comments can get me riled up! For instance, my husband’s friend was talking about jumpsuits several months back, stating that they were hard to pull off so most people shouldn’t try. Well, if you want me to do something just say it’s next to impossible and I’ll be all over it like a fly on you know what! Plus, I quickly pointed out that I wear jumpsuits frequently and have for years, but he didn’t believe me.  So here is one of said jumpsuits, a vintage nightie which I have seen fit to wear out of the house.  The added bonus of being super comfy doesn’t hurt one bit either!   So don’t hold back, please tell me if you would do this particular don’t!!
60s leopard print jumpsuit nightie, $10 ebay several years ago
70s shrunken fit child’s Lee jean jacket, $5 thrifted several years ago
Diba pointed toe flats, $5 thrifted in Seattle when our friends got married 4 years ago
Vintage chain belt, $1 thrifted several years ago
70s sunglasses, $1 thrifted several years ago
70s Sarah Coventry necklace, $10 ebay last week
killer chain earrings, $8 porkchop rules via Crimson and Clover

  1. I believe in doing "don'ts" my friend has been wearing the most awesome polka dotted jumpsuit on our road trip and my respect for her totally soared thru the roof, it looks awesome. I don't wear them, though, b/c it makes peeing annoying.

  3. YOU are one be fashion Please DO! Love the jumpsuit, but I love "onesies" on prinicple. Love how you make this outfit so fun, and way better than marching around in public in a track suit.
    Here's to "breakin' the rules" !

  9. You definitely can pull the jumpsuit very well.
    I use to wear the 90's version of the jumper (they were like mini dresses with wide legs) with tights.
    The belt, necklace and sunglasses are so cool!!
    Have a fantastic weekend!

  11. Rockin' the jumpsuit, there! I love the leopard print on you, so rrrrrrrrrrrrock 'n' roll.
    I adore my jumpsuits (it's just getting them back on after I've made a toilet stop).
    Nothing worse than someone going all fashion fasicist and laying down the law with what we can and cannot wear, it's like a red flag to a bull and I have to go and find one out and wear it. xxx

  13. Well, I LOVE a jumpsuit and have worn them forever - though I wear them less at the moment because they are a 'trend' item and I am contrary and don't want to wear them if anybody else is!

    You look AMAZING and is there anything better than a jumpsuit? YES - a LEOPARD jumpsuit. So I bow down to you and your jumpsuit and tell your friend to stick that in his pipe and smoke it!

  14. I used to have a jumpsuit that was hard to pull off. Literally. And since I have to pee a lot, I let it go to someone else. Here's to those who can wear them comfortably.

  15. You look terrific. I like jumpsuits: they have elan which is an attitude that suits you.

  16. Vix!!! I pity the fool who would challenge your outfit choices!! A red flag to a bull indeed! So funny!
    Clairejustine! Thanks for you compliment and visit!!
    Sarah!!! I'm cracking up at your contrary stance!! I feel the same way, when I go to forever 21 it's to see what not to wear!! Trends are so unimaginative, not for bold syle leaders such as yourself!!
    Judy C!! Hard to pull off, literally! So true, I must admit I may not wear them if I'm goin on a beer swillin binge!! Thanks for stoppin by!!
    Shybiker!!! Thanks so much, I really value your opinion as true original in a sea of conformity! MWAH!

  20. Dear girl!! Thanks! I'm glad I never get rid of anything, no regrets! But no closet space, either! I'd love to see the one your mom made!!

  21. The more I blog, the more strange things I want to wear. I see so much possibility! I don't know what I love the most: that you're wearing a nightie or that it's a jumpsuit or maybe I just like your glamorous take on the whole thing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. debbie baker burns!! Thanks for the compliment!! I think the nightie was well made (like most mid century union made garments) and it is fully lined so I don't fear for overexposure! And it's just too fun to keep inside!! So glad you enjoyed your visit!! You're always welcome to stop by!!
