I bought this vintage jumpsuit last week. I have to say it was a very difficult item to buy on my own. Normally I prefer shopping alone, but this time I could have done with some trusted company. I originally went hunting for high waisted peg leg trousers, but couldn't find any, so I went to have a look in Beyond Retro and this jumpsuit caught my attention straight away. It is made of a really soft crepe and has a satin collar. The size is perfect as well, which is lucky with anything vintage. Generally I see a dress and it is either too big or too small. I wasn't 100% convinced I could pull it off when I tried it on, and couldn't ask anyone, but I remembered how I let that Diane Von Furstenberg jumpsuit escape last time, so I was determined to buy this one.
I wore it out on Friday night to a friend's birthday and I have to say the operation jumpsuit was a big success. Everyone complimented me, which made me feel confident about that look. There is something really empowering about wearing a jumpsuit, I don't know why that is. I do know I sound like I am completely up my own a** when I write things like this, but am not sure how else I can explain the feeling.
