anyone who knows me knows there are two unequivocal truths about me:
1. i am terrified of tsunamis.
2. i love love love one-piece outfits. rompers, jumpsuits, bodysuits, etc. if it's one piece, i fall to pieces for it.
i am also obsessed with workout clothes - if lululemon had a frequent shopper card, i'd be gold status. last week, they dropped the "One for Om Bodysuit" - which is a cat woman-like one piece yoga leotard. when it first came out, i was like...as if. then i actually went to the store and i was inspired to try it on. and i fell in love. obviously.
so at first i was like...how will i wear this? it's insane. a yoga leotard? i can't think of one situation where i'd be like "yeah, my skin-tight, open back, one piece leotard/catsuit is the perfect outfit for this!" but whatever, i bought it anyways. Purdue, get ready to experience a chick in a catsuit.
so there it is - in the dressing room. i am NOT joking when it say it's skin tight, as you can see. so this morning, i actually did yoga and wore it, and it's awesome. and then i experimented with how to wear it off the mat. and i came up with this.
tank & bodysuit, lululemon
so i threw the "wandering yogi tank" on over it, which is a burnout material, super loose 'n breezy tank, and much to my satisfaction, i look somewhat normal! i mean it is still definitely a cat suit...but with at tank top over it. so moral of this insane story - it's okay to buy cat suits, just be prepared with a somewhat normal accessory, like a tank top.
in the same vein, i also busted out my fav roller-girl-esque red-velvet-with-pink-piping romper. this is straight out of the 70's/Studio 54 with a level of skank that only American Apparel could manufacture. nonetheless, i f'ing love this romper!
i even wear it with heels. eat your heart out, Babe Ruthless. romper, American Apparel
and my piece de la resistance - my Bianca Jagger full length jumpsuit. this baby comes out as evening wear or maybe even for class in the upcoming semester.
so engineering grad school - prepare yourself. i'm taking this love affair on the road with me and me & my rompers/jumpsuits/catsuits will be in full force down in West Lafayette!
