If it’s black, has pockets and goes from day to night…it is definitely for me. I scouted this piece for a client this summer and loved it right away. When I took it to her, we discussed how FUNCTIONAL it would be in her wardrobe and how she probably “had to have it.” Later that day, I was out doing my exchanges from her appointment and couldn’t stop thinking about it. That’s my trigger. If I can’t stop thinking about it…I buy it.
Long ago (in my novice shopping days) I used to ponder over an item for weeks. Usually by the time I decided to purchase the item, it would be long gone. So, I changed my thought to make more efficient buying decisions. Most people buy emotionally, including myself. I mean, if I can’t stop thinking about an item, I have made an emotional commitment with said item. Hence, that item becomes a new friendly face in my closet. It’s a win win. I buy it before it sells out AND get to enjoy styling the item right away too.
Romper || Topshop Buy it now!
When I saw this black 70’s inspired button front romper with front patch pockets…I thought “Oh the possibilities!” Never mind the fact that I already own 2 other black rompers. This one was different. I will mention that it is from TOPSHOP which can run a tiny bit on the small side. However, I normally wear a size 6-8 and I bought a size 6.
Why I fell emotionally in love with this romper and why you need it too!
- It has pockets. Deep pockets. Who doesn’t love pockets?
- It has an attached string style belt that you can tie to nip in your waist. (Fave)
- The fabric is polyester crepe. Wears well. Washes well. And has just the slightest amount of stretch which means it is comfortable.
- Roomy through the thigh.
- Front button closure for easy in and out.
- Dressy enough with a chunky heel or dressed down with a sneaker or sandal.
Also, this piece is totally perfect for transitional weather. Right now, it is perfect all by itself. But, when the weather starts to chill out a bit, I will style it with a leather jacket and booties. Done and done.
