Jumpsuit Nation

I had always assumed jumpsuits weren’t for me. This long torso of mine would ruin the look, I figured. My natural waist is at least two inches lower than where clothing wants it to be.

Approximately two years ago, I bought a jumpsuit on a whim. It fit, but I fussed with it the whole first wearing, tugging the waist to where I wanted it. Unsurprisingly, said jumpsuit largely languishes in the back of my closet.

Still, all summer, I saw so many cute, casual jumpsuits, particularly in my neighborhood and it made me want to try again.

That is how I became the proud owner of three new jumpsuits.

First I found this casual one, in black, from the Gap. I am definitely taking it on my upcoming vacation. Of the three, it’s the easiest to take off in the ladies’ room.😄

Camo done wrong

Camouflage is a big fashion trend right now.

But I’m pretty sure the woman I saw on the bus wasn’t making a fashion statement when she dressed.

Guest post by @eimski: Organizing, Polyvore and Other Good Stuff

How do you organize?

I am an organizer by nature. I like to plan in advance for all eventualities. If I am stressed or anxious I usually find that several hours of organizing calms my mind. Yes, I am Eimear and I have an organization addiction.

This fascination with planning extends to my trip wardrobes.  Recently when I visited NYC I let slip to @1chicklette that I use Polyvore to outfit plan prior to traveling. She found it fascinating and suggested I write a post on my reasons for using it, so here you have it.

The first question that I know people will have is why.  Well, ever since I first saw Clueless I have been fascinated by the idea of having a database of all the clothes I own and being able to press a button ala Cher Horowitz to generate an outfit idea.

I recently discovered that Polyvore somewhat allows you to do this. You can add pictures of any items you have purchased from any online stores (such as Gap, Old Navy, ShopBop etc.) to your ‘Items’ and from there create pictorial ‘Sets’ (basically outfits) using pre created themed templates.

I bought it: Kate Spade Suzette coat

I like the show New Girl – cutesy catchphrases and all. But I haven’t been watching this season live, for the most part. Too busy.

Recently though I did catch one episode live: the one where Zooey Deschanel’s Jess wore a fantastic blue coat.

I immediately turned to twitter and asked @Possessionista if she had details of this gorgeous coat.

Duh.

Within minutes, @Possessionista (aka Dana) had told me not just that the coat was from Kate Spade but also where I could get one of the last few available for sale.

Merry Christmas to me. It’s here and I love it!

Sadly, it’s sold out just about everywhere now. Even the not-Jess-worn red version. Try ebay if you’re determined.
