There are just times when you really want to look your best. One of those times happened to me when I ran into Joe’s ex and let’s just say it was not my finest moment. I wrote about this on the blog a l-o-n-g time ago so I will give you a brief summary of the event for those who might not have seen the post. Joe and I had been married about two years and we were living in Georgia at the time. We came back to Grundy to visit his mom but the morning that we were going to leave I woke up with an eye infection. I went to the eye doctor and he told me that I had to put drops in my eye every 4 hours and not to wear any makeup. Well, great, at least they were all family and had seen me looking bad before.
My eye was swollen and I was constantly having to wipe it because it was watery. The day after we were there, his mom and sister wanted to go to a tiny little store and they wanted me to go with them. I figured since I didn’t know a single person in town what would it matter. No makeup, swelled eye, and a constant watery ooze coming out of my eye was the look. While we were there they chatted with a couple of people and introduced me as Joe’s wife and then we went back home. Later they mentioned to Joe that we had run into Toni and he looked at me and then bust out laughing. What? What is so funny? He could barely quit laughing long enough to tell me that Toni was his ex. He knew that I would be mortified and for some reason that made it all the funnier. Lesson learned, you never know who you will run into when you leave the house so always be prepared!!! All of that to say that I think this black and white jumpsuit would be a perfect outfit for wearing somewhere when you want to impress. The first thing that comes to mind for me is a class reunion. I would much rather go to my reunion in this then I would in jeans and a top. There is nothing wrong with jeans and a top but everyone wears those things. This jumpsuit is trendy, fashionable, and it screams, “I am not old and I am not going to start looking like I am!” I plan on taking this with me when I go to New Orleans in September to an RF Convention. There will be thousands of gorgeous (they all use RF) young women there and I want to look my best. I went with some statement necklaces but went tiny on the earrings. I wanted the necklaces to be the focal point. The large wire knot necklace on black leather strands was one that I received from Purple Poppy. Did you know that she had accessories also? The long silver chain necklace with the large marbled ivory stones is called the Janalee. I only added My Alex and Ani bracelets along with my Ezra bling bracelet. I decided to keep my jewelry simple with the exception on the necklaces. I like the vertical stripes on the jumpsuit, they help you look long and lean. This is by Leith and I am wearing a large so it runs true to size. This is partially lined, like shorts but not all the way down the legs, and is 100% polyester. It is machine washable (yay) and line dry. I like the dolman sleeve and the plunging neckline but if that is too low for you then I would add a little white lace camisole under it and it would look fine. You all know that I am build like a ruler so I don’t have a great definition on my waist. This is really supposed to tie in the back but I brought it around front to try and distract from my thickness in my waist. Here are a few more jumpsuits that are sure to help you stand out from the crowd.
This jumpsuit was part of my latest Trunk Club shipment. I love getting my trunk in monthly because I don’t have any shopping opportunities in town and I love the free shipping and returns. It is like trying things on in the privacy of my home instead of having to go to the store. If this sounds like something that you would be interested in, then go here to sign up.
I haven’t done a giveaway in a while so let’s have one today! I will be giving away TWO Sofia bracelets. Go here to see how I wore the bracelet. To enter, comment if you have ever had an embarrassing encounter with an ex. Lol! This should be fun unless I am the only one who ever had something like that happen. 😱
