I wasn’t quite sure what else to title this post because if you are A. Over 40 and B. Have considered wearing a one piece romper contraption – well this leads to C. You ask how you’re going to make it to the bathroom. It’s like algebra for middle aged women.
And let me just also tell you that I certainly did not want to buy this romper, own this romper, or wear this romper. Because romper. I don’t have many hard and fast fashion rules – like once you turn 40 you can no longer wear certain fashions. My rules are basically…
1. Does it look nice
2. Does it feel nice
3. Can I afford it
4. Do I NOT look like my tween daughters
6. Can I pee easily
Pretty simple rules. But another one that I kind of follow is that if I wore it the first time it was in style than maybe I AM too old to wear it the second time around.
I wore rompers – and fondly remember stars like Emma Peel and Kate Jackson rocking them too.
In fact, when I put this romper on – my husband was all like “You look like that Charlie’s Angel lady?” And I was like “You don’t mean Kate Jackson, right? Because she wasn’t the pretty one with the good hair.” And he was all like “Yep, her..but hotter.”
So my dear friend Rachel talked me in to the damn Patio Romper from CAbi(Now sold out) and it sat in my closet for a few months. Until I had a few glasses of wine and figured what the hell – let’s give her a roll.
AND I LOVED IT. And looked a lot like Kate and Emma’s love child. DOUBLE BONUS POINTS!
BUT WHAT ABOUT PEEING? Many people messaged me with the same concerns. And YES – you have to get like totally naked when you hit the ladies room – BUT YOU WILL LIVE – because you look rocking hot in your romper. And all those girls wearing all those fancy dresses will be totes jealous that they didn’t buy a romper too.
And pretty soon everyone will be wearing rompers because Kate Jackson is NOW the hot Angel dammit.
So my unpaid romper review…
1. They are comfy
2. They are practical
3. They are hot
4. You will not pee yourself
5. And you are never too old to try something new
You’re welcome. Now go buy a romper. But not the kind with snaps in the crotch.
