dressed up like a lady: Look out! I'm romping!

May 29, 2008

Look out! I'm romping!

I love a good romper -- also known as a onesie, a jumpsuit, a playsuit, a shortsuit, a onepiece, and probably a hundred other names. It's a hassle to pee while you're wearing one, but they're cute and different and have a great sense of fun about them.



What I really love about this romper is that it's made of silk. This is a total 180 on the original purpose of the jumpsuit, which was supposed to be something to work and play in -- a garment built to take abuse with roughness and activity. Eventually, everything becomes pure fashion.



Romper: Kimchi and Blue via UO
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell via UO



Tiered Necklace: Thrifted
Key Necklace: Vintage via the Getup


It seems too shiny and pretty for it, but I still wonder if this necklace of keys might have been the actual set carried by the groundskeeper at some estate or something. They're all "bit" keys, but the teeth on each of them are a little different, and some are different lengths. It would seem like a bunch of keys made just for decoration would have more simple uniformity, but who knows. Maybe there's a hardware expert at one of my antique stores who could tell me.
