I’ve always been a late bloomer.
Some call it being late to the party while others say it’s all about following the beat of your own drum. I like that. The same mantra applies to the clothes I choose to wear.
Despite their universal appeal, I’ve can safely reveal that jumpsuits rank alongside rompers and peplums as well as pencil skirts and kitten heels as still being on my
attempt to-wear bucket list. And herein lies the beauty of a collaborative effort. Being part of a group which takes turns in determining themes means that one can only choose what one prefers once, and only once. Thereafter, you’re pretty much at the mercy of the whims and fancies of the other members, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing as I’ve come to discover with The Fab 40s.
It was Ann’s turn this month and she decided we ought to shine the spotlight on jumpsuits. I confess. I was at my wit’s end. I do not own a single jumpsuit and up until Ann’s email telling us of the theme, I had zero intentions of purchasing one let alone being seen by the world wide web audience actually wearing a jumpsuit. But in the spirit of being a good sport, I hunted high and low, and I found one, put it on and styled it with an asymmetrical plaid cardigan. While it didn’t look too bad, it was just lacking the fun and zany and free-spirited bit that was me.
Truthfully, I was close to despair when I found it. The jumpsuit. The one which spoke to me. And spoke of me, and plastered an enormous smile on my steroid-bloated face (sigh, that’ll take another 3, 4 weeks to subside but hey, at least my face is completely healed now).
I call it my flying squirrel jumpsuit.
Enough of me and my flights of fancy 🙂 have a look at what the other ladies wore.
Does anyone else notice how they’re all wearing Black and/or Blue save for me??? And that they look super duper F-A-N-T-A-B-U-L-O-U-S?? Now, I might know the answer to this question but how about you? Do you love jumpsuits? I’m still on the fence but I believe I’m slowly becoming a convert.
