Hi. Hello. Ah! I'm in a panic, my friends, because I just bought this romper and you need to too!
Last summer before I started this blog and before I decided to get to know myself and purge my closet in preparation for a capsule wardrobe (that project is currently on hold), I came across this adorable romper on Extra Petite and my heart ached and ached because damn it was expensive! But so, so cute!
And it's not particularly cheap right now at $50, but remember how we've talked about buying quality pieces and investing in pieces that you love?
Trust me, I love this romper.
And patience is seriously a virtue, because I've waited... 7-8 months to buy this thing yet here it is ON SALE.
So, you may be wondering how does it fit and feel?
It runs small.
It is really short (great, sexy length for petite ladies).
The V dips very low in front (should be an easy fix).
The design of the wrap is superb!
The waist is an excellent cincher and shaper.
This will need to be hand washed and dried flat to avoid shrinking.
If you're petite, I highly recommend you get it!
Here is a nice reference for you: I am 5'2", about 115 lbs. and below is how it looks on me (excuse the extremely messy room and cat butt) I bought a size small (XS is for the super petite!):
I absolutely love the hourglass shape it provides me.
I'm incredibly obsessed with black and white. This is a pattern I will never get tired or bored of!
I am really a fan of long sleeve rompers, because I've mentioned this before, but I'm insecure about my arms and shoulders.
So this romper flaunts my shape and legs, but covers me where I feel most insecure. Which means... confidence booster.
I also like how it's classy and sexy.
It's a more refined look that is polished without being overtly, in your face - BAM - sex. And it would look great with a blazer, which you know by now is a piece I'm obsessed with. Here are two I've bought and love (still waiting on the white one to come in):
If you want to check out how Jean on Extra Petite styles this piece, you can see that here. I can't wait to share in the future how I will style it!
Sorry if I alarmed any of you. I'm clearly excited! I'm not sure how long this item will be in stock, but I recommend you at least consider it.
I'm trying to adopt a more minimalist mind-set, but that doesn't have to mean being devoid of style or joy in my wardrobe. I know this is a piece I will wear again and again because it fits my style.
I think it's important to figure that out for yourself and I talk more about that here.
Are you as obsessed about this romper as I am? What is your go-to look for nights out? Please tell me in the comments!
