jump in

 
It all started a few weeks ago when my friend (bag designer) Clare Vivier showed up at a gallery opening wearing a jumpsuit. She looked stylish and at ease. And smart too, because she probably didn't spend thirty minutes like I did getting dressed! Then a few nights later, another friend (a stylist) arrived at a cocktail party sporting a vintage YSL black tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit. And my new obsession took hold. The jumpsuit has many merits after all: it's one-step-dressing, works around the clock and comes across unexpected looking. I especially love the modern strapless style, above, as it's day-to-night-proof (with a blazer thrown over it at the office). I found a similar Zara version, imbued with a sleek Stella McCartney-meets-The Row aura. I am also digging these genius takes by By Malene Birger, Viva Vena! by Vena Cava and A.L.C (on sale!).

YAY! I purchased a black jumpsuit last year and just bought the raspberry one from Zara last week! Now I'm thinking all I need is a printed one and my collection will be complete!

XOXO, Jenn

I just worry about how to handle this in the bathroom! (lol) Needless to say, jumpsuits and rompers are trends I have stayed away.

So Charlie's-Angels-good.

Ya, I definitely prefer not to get fully undressed when I need to use the ladies room.

I am not big on jumpsuits, but this one I have and it looks so elegant.
