Hello and Happy Friday, everyone — and DAY BEFORE THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND!!!!!
With a glorious 3-day mini-vacay ahead of us — full of BBQs, beaches, fireworks & fun — it’s safe to say that some of us vintage lovers will be opting for the must-have, go-to piece of the summer season: VINTAGE ROMPERS!
But today, I’m going to get a bit more specific with this snazzy style, as inspired by a recent question posed by vintage lover Lauren G:
” I really dig rompers. I mean could the fashion gods have designed an easier, more stylistic way to look cute on the go? However, I have a little extra “love” in my midsection and don’t want to look like a cute human stuck in sausage packing, look pregnant, or anything else that super accentuates my plus-sizeness.
Although my super mission to get healthy is going well (Down 20.4 lbs!) for the time being I am still on the plus side of life. A beautiful plus size friend of mine recently wore a black romper out and looked stunning, but I really love the floral prints and not so plain ones.
Is it possible for me to partake in this fashion trend in floral print? Or am I doomed to fade to black?!”
Lauren, thank you SO MUCH for this question and CONGRATULATIONS! on achieving goals to feel and live in happy harmony with your HEALTH.
I strive to educate, enlighten and entertain you to see vintage fashion as a great source of style for YOU, no matter your body shape or how close you are to that “goal weight” we all seem to have, no matter our size.
