Obsessed much with the nautical wear? UM…YEAH! I’ve been so for the last 2 years. I think it started after my fetish with jumpers/rompers. But things got better and someone in the creative heavens known as D.C. came up with reading my mind and putting my two fetishes together- the sailor romper. I’ve been eyeing this romper for a while now but opted not to buy it because of budgetary restraints. But after appearing on a markdown sample sale, my sister, Steph bought it for me for an early happy birthday present! It’s a whole bag of cheetos, finger licking good. The chambray fabric gives it a very loose, casual feel, without it being too stiff, and the cut it just about right. Being pretty short, myself, the shorts don’t ride too high on the inseam, but is a modest length. Also, it’s playful, easy to wear, and doesn’t require a separate belt. When I walk out with it, I get a lot of compliments, not to mention it compliments the sailor blouse I bought 2 months ago, made by the same designer. -ps. Thanks, Te! I’ll add it to my collection of rompers.

OMG. I LOVE rompers; I can wear these everywhere. They are so comfortable, even my husband commented on the material, and he’s not a fashion kind of man. Let me just say, the picture doesn’t give this piece any justice! Someone get this romper a model! I’m 5’2 and small, so I had to size down to an XS, which fit great, and still with a lot of room left over for the material to flow and move. The top is, however a bit too long so it drapes a little longer than it should, but still looks fine when worn. The legs are a little longer too, but when it’s hiked up to the calves, they stay on there. When pulled down, they reach my ankles, but I don’t like how it looks when worn all the way down. My last disappointment is that the elastic waist is a little big so it tends to drop all the way down […]
