It’s been a while since I have posted a DIY project. (For my regular followers, I heard that, it’s been a while since you’ve posted at all….fair, fair :) )
I’ve got to say - I.LOVE.rompers. It’s like a stylish onsie for adults! Throw on a romper + right shoe + a few accessories and you look fantastic for day or night.
With the renewed popularity of rompers over the last few years - you can snag one for under $20 from H&M or Forever 21. However, if you’re anything like me- like a jealous lover, you cringe at the idea of encountering your onesie draped across the body of another and conversely crave the feeling in which you know that you are wearing a rare or even one-of-a-kind piece. My shallow pockets and lust for originality dovetail well with the art of thrifting.
Last year, my local thrift shop was doing a sale in which I got 3 jumpsuits (long pants rompers) for $10 each (only have 1 before shot-sorry! The other suit I had cut by the sales clerk…which was dumb because he didn’t cut it even). They were wild, super 80s, intense and I loved it. As you can see from the picture above, sometimes you got to trust your gut and see through the ugly.
Here is how I transformed them into cute modern rompers:
