I have wanted a jumpsuit for a while now, especially back in December when there were holiday parties galore. I looked everywhere for a saucy black number to rock and yet came up empty handed. Again, I do this to myself, but I’ll invent exactly what I’m looking for in my head and then will spend forever trying to find it. Last time around, nothing.
But when my girlfriends and I made plans for Derby that involved not actually going to the race, I decided I wanted something fun and different, not just a new dress. I had some sort of pant option in mind, but ruled out a jumpsuit since I hadn’t had much luck the last time I looked. Then one Saturday I strolled into Nordstrom Rack on a whim and found this little ditty hanging in the back on a marked down rack. Cha-ching.
I’ve worn it three or four times since then. That’s when you know it’s cool. That also when you know I have multiple social circles to navigate.
