It must have been windier than I thought-- look how I am leaning to my left in every photo! I am left-handed... and left-brained... and I have two left feet. Perhaps that has something to do with it!

I purchased this romper from the Goodwill in early summer. I was nervous to wear it because I had heard from so many people, friends and bloggers alike, that curvy girls should not wear rompers. To that I say, "Faugh!" Who says what is flattering? Who makes these silly fashion rules? This blog has helped me gain so much confidence in my sartorial choices and my overall heart. To my readers, I say a huge "Thank you." I know that my choices aren't necessarily what you would choose for yourself, and isn't that what fashion is about? Thank you for visiting me everyday and just accepting me for who I am... or at least for what I wear.



  1. Hi Louise!

    Thanks for being the first two entries on my giveaway! You're so cool. I love your outfit today. Rompers are so comfortable. I'm a curvy girl too, and I say do it.

  2. I have been wanting to wear a romper for the longest time but I have a pretty well endowed booty and haven't even tried one on. But I think I just might! You look adorable.

  3. Oh I didn't even notice it was a romper, I thought it was a super cute dress! Incredible color combo here, and your blog is just so fun&lovely!

  4. Hey Lou!

    Very cute! I'm intrigued by the effect of the bright cardigan, which creates a slimming and geometric contrast to the romper

    If you have a sec, could you drop by my blog and check out my recent post on men, body image and media standards? I think you'll find the article an interesting read, and it's somewhat relevant to your own blog-commentary on fashion, self-confidence and real beauty.

    I'd love to hear what you think!

  5. You know what's funny? It's almost NOT a romper. At least, it doesn't really look like one. It almost looks like a dress, which is kinda cool.
    I admit, I own a romper, but I wear it to sleep in :)

  6. You look amazing, as always! I love the color of your cardigan, and that boater hat is too cute!

  7. I love the charcoal with the bright pops of color! It's refined and funky.

  8. Great look. At first I didn't think it was a romper, but you look great in it! I like the color of your cardigan as well! :)

  11. I love this look. I never thought I'd say this about a romper, but it's very elegant! Love the black boater hat, too.
