Cause Baby, When I Saw You, For The First Time I Knew

You guys? This happened:

Silk Romper

That is a strapless silk harem panted romper. Yeah. That's what it is. It's over the top. It feels like walking around in lotion. And it is AWESOME.

I don't get the impression too many of my guy friends are impressed. But I don't care. IT"S SILK. AND HAREM PANTS. AND AWESOME. Did I mention that it's awesome?

It was originally sold at Anthropologie for around 80 bucks, but I got it at Buffalo Exchange for 21.50.

It not only feels good but it feels fun. I felt so happy in this romper. And I wore it straight from work out to a nice dinner with friends. (OK, I admit it, I had to change into flats after work, but the romper stayed!)

I can't wait to wear it again!

I admit to being a little weirded out by the 'idea' of a harem panted romper - I'm sorry a what?, but you look completely adorable in it and hello silk? how awesome is that, especially in the summer.

Stephanie said...

What an amazing find. So stylish and comfy at the same time.

If there wasn't photographic evidence of the cuteness, I admit, I wouldn't believe you. :) I do like the idea of a swishy silk romper though.

Dying over this! I thought it was a strapless bubble dress at first. The fact that it's a romper [where I don't have to see every single bit of you!] is fantastic.

That looks fabulous on you...loving that bold look!

you're rocking the crap outta this mindblowing garment, yo! i kinda love that it's a romper/harem hibrid that doesn't seem to lean on either trend too heavily. instead by combining the two, you get this totally unique and subtly funky look. you = gorgeous!

Ana - Better in Sepia said...

Holy crap, you look awesome. Also, Hi! It's been forever since we've chatted!

Rebecca said...

You can definitely pull of a strapless harem pants romper, so wear that baby with pride!

Keely said...

A-maxing! So adorable! I never would have guessed it was a romper-I thought it was a dress. It's to die for!

Elissa said...

Okay, so you know how I feel about rompers. But I also have a passionate love affair with anything Anthro, especially at Buffalo prices. So...I have to admit that this romper works. The print is beautiful and I love that it's silk. It's fun and crazy and great for these super hot days we've been having. And I can't imagine anyone else pulling it off as well as you.

WendyB said...

Looks fab on you!

Chalkdust and Boots said...

Awesome? YES! Ohmigod, I love that so much and you rock it like it's your JOB. I'm actually jealous. And your hair is looking A-MAZING!

Twills said...

My four year old son, who is himself a sartorialist, saw this post and said, "That looks fantastic!" So you have kid approval for sure! I've been secretly wanting to try something like this and now I just might! :)

Amanda said...

You look great!

On paper, I wouldn't have believed a silk strapless harem romper would be a good idea but it looks fantastic on you and very comfortable.

Lovely dress, looks so good on you girl. To be honest the model is so classic and the color is just making it even more beautiful.
