With every outfit there is always a story or a series events leading up to where you wear a certain outfit. This one in particular has a humorous story, I suppose. This beautiful red/wine velvet romper was purchased way back in October for my birthday. Now I will mention again that I like to plan certain outfits WAY ahead of time, even if I don’t know where I am going just yet. Luckily this began with a place and I planned my outfit around it. Well sort’ve. I was determined to go to Vandal and take a picture in front of their famous graffiti staircase! And looking like fire while doing so… the plot began. To find the perfect outfit.

I wanted to be different, like that statement is new. So of course I decided to order from a company on the other side of planet earth, AUSTRALIA! I secretly have a love for the country and its fashion, one day I would love to visit … and swim with sharks. Great White Sharks are there. I’m veering off topic here.. What I failed to look further into was the sizing conversion. I was so excited to order my romper (last minute mind you – so I stupidly paid for express shipping) so I failed to convert my sizing. Since I am half Irish and half Italian, my bottom half was graced with my Italian side. Panic mode. WHAT SIZE DID I ORDER?! OH GOD MY BIRTHDAY ATTIRE IS RUINED! I ordered a size Extra Small… I needed a Medium to fit these hips that don’t lie. The universe granted me with a birthday wish that the romper did indeed fit, maybe a little bit more fitted but I didn’t care I was going to wear the damn thing any way and have a blast.

By the time I got to Vandal and cautiously walked down that infamous staircase I was too happy to have made it down in my monsterous heels that I forgot to take a photo. It didn’t help that my phone suddenly decided that the battery life was drunk. So no fancy photos were taken that night, minus one that I will share at the very bottom of this post….

So lets get to the details of this very revealing romper shall we? It is a deep v plunge neck line, rather risky and limits your dance moves. I took a tip from Kim Kardashian-West (who is terribly missed on social media) and used packaging tape to keep my “itty bitties” in place. Literally taped myself into the romper, using some bandaids as pasties and I was set to go. The robot is my signature dance move so it was ok that I could barely move so that my chest wouldn’t be exposed for all of the NYC nightlife to see. We DO NOT want any of those fashion mishaps. To add a little bit of sparkle to my outfit I wore a star burst y-necklace/lariat necklace from Dynamite & some gold rings. These rings are so old and very much part of my jewelry archives..

Outfit details…

 Oh and as promised the one photo from my actual birthday celebrations. Don’t believe me? JUST WATCH

I wasn’t kidding when I told you that I LOVE ROMPERS. No really, I do. Not as much as I love Quay Australia Sunglasses (style I’m wearing is called Vivienne). It has rapidly turned into a small collection. The romper I’m wearing today is so light weight, its perfect for a hot summer day… and yes even with the long sleeves.

How did I encounter this really awesome romper you might wonder? Let me share..

This is a story about a girl named Lucky…

EARLY MORNIN… Apologies, this quickly took a wrong turn down bad karaoke lane. YIKES!

In Long Beach Island, there is a great boutique called Island Gypsy. Every year that I visit I always make it a top priority to visit this great shop. What makes boutiques like this so much fun to shop in is that not everyone will be wearing the same outfit as you since they carry limited quantities of each clothing item. My personal style has always been to stand out from the crowd, so boutique shopping is perfect for me. This shop has multiple locations you can visit, I highly recommend checking them out!

Being the determined girl I am, I searched high and low of where to buy this romper online. Success! Well somewhat, you can purchase this Love Stitch Romper here. They don’t have the navy option that I’m wearing, both styles in black and cranberry are definitely worthy of a purchase.

Last part of my outfit is the sandals.. which are now filled with sand. Oh, the lengths one will go to create a cute blog photo. These are Steve Madden sandals which I purchased earlier this spring and are also sold out. Need not to worry since I found a similar pair you can purchase at Macys here. Would you look at that, they are on sale too!

Summer Romper

Its summer. Its hot. Sometimes sticky and gross. Who are we kidding here, it is just not comfortable. But what is comfortable is a romper. This past summer it has been my go to look, some of these can even be worn straight into the fall. The perfect transition outfit in between seasons (summer into fall and spring into summer).

Today I’m wearing the O’Neill Nashville Romper paired with Steve Madden Gladiators. This entire look is the definition of COMFORT. These sandals I purchased earlier this spring and I am so happy that I did, from spring to summer I got A LOT of use out of them.

Although the romper is a bit of a splurge, I will share my secret of how I purchased it. Amazon. The app is the best thing since sliced bread – my bank account would disagree. It is complete up to your discretion if you would rather purchase it through the O’Neill website. On amazon there is a few dollars worth of a price difference, in my eyes a few dollars saved is better than nothing.

Summer is almost over, stay cool!

 

 

P.S.

A warning to all the ladies rocking a romper…… Godspeed.  9c1e0ea8d7f415bd0b918887cb0c4824fc27af40cb32747d98f71cfe216602f3
