Romping Around

And back to posting outfits! As most of my friends know, I may have a slight obsessions with all things one-piece. Rompers, jumpsuits (okay, I don't actually own a jumpsuit, but only because I haven't one with the perfect fit yet and I'm too nervous to buy online), overalls... You name it, and chances are I'm lusting over it. 

A certain friend thinks I'm childish.. or child-sized (seriously, I'm not. I'm almost 5'7"... almost). Really though, one-pieces and rompers are just super easy to wear, you can usually dress them up or down, and their just very chic. It's a smart choice for those as lazy as me in the mornings.

 Speaking about being child-sized... I can't believe this is a 00 Petite. Seriously, it fits almost perfectly (arms are slightly tight unless I stand up straight), despite the fact that I'm no where near being petite. I thought with Marissa Webb designing for Banana Republic, the sizing would go back to relatively accurate (or at least somewhat close to standard designer sizing) rather than the vanity sizing that causes me to avoid Banana Republic. Nope. Still can't fit into anything apparently. Except petite stuff, but I don't necessarily want pants that are too short. Oh well. I will shop there for Marissa Webb, but I'll mourn over my lack of options for bottoms. I don't know how people skinnier than me shop there.

Don't know what I'm doing with my head here, but my legs looked long, so...

I am very obviously out of practice with using a tripod and remote, but oh well. I'll figure it out again soon... I hope. 

Romper: Banana Republic (loving this military style too)

  1. 00 petite? You are one tiny thing! However your style statement is massive ;) Love everything about it. You are definitely not childish, unless by childish your friend means INCREDIBLY chic!

  3. Yes, the vanity sizing at Banana Republic or any of their related stores is crazy! Normally I'm a size 4, 2 at the smallest.

  4. Right?! Everyone thinks I put a lot of effort in, but really, I'm just super lazy in the morning.

  6. Love the color of that romper! I love one pieces too, they're like dresses but much more practical. I don't really have any though, because they're so hard to buy online like you said, and I'm too short for most of them.

  9. Yupp, they're terribly hard to buy online. I tried once, and had to sew in extra darts and shorten the straps. Such is life I guess. =/
