A Jumpsuit

In anticipation for our move to L.A., I bought this fabulous maxi jumpsuit during a thrifting trip last Fall.  The moment I saw it, I had to have it!  
In fact, I couldn't wait to wear it so in February, the dead of Winter, I went ahead and debuted it anyway with a long sleeve top here.  

Sunday evening, I decided it was finally time to wear it, bare arms and all :)  



I chose to wear it as a halter instead of  over the shoulders as the way it was designed.  I simply tucked in the back straps and let it drape.   Halters work better for my build.  Why wear something that doesn't fully flatter your shape?   I am always attempting to tailor my clothing to make it fit for me, even in the smallest ways.
And I definitely keep that in mind when I go thrifting.


I love the evening tone of this item.  And it could look a lot more formal if I'd wanted but last night, I  decided some cork wedges would keep it casual for just evening drinks in Little Tokyo.


I am a one piece's biggest fan.

And I continue to promise myself that I will get more jumpers and playsuits and don't.  Now that I'm in perma-sun weather however, if I can pop on just one statement piece and go, that's reason enough to make a small collection for my Tiny wardrobe.

  10. Beautiful. I keep looking at the hair and the jumper. My hair is natural and has been my entire life, but it tends to be less thick than most kinky curly hair. I love my hair, but I stalk yours!
