Yes, If You All Jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge...

Well, I did it. I finally surrendered. I threw in the fashion towel. So many of you bloggers have done it with such success that it was only a matter of time before the summer staple of 2010 landed on my back. And yes, I was hesitant but truly how could I resist? I present to you all, my romper.
But where can a nearly 40 year old woman possibly rock an inappropriately short and kind of tight romper?



The Playboy Club circa 1966?


Eartha Kitt’s 23rd Birthday?


How about a Dean Martin Celebrity Roast?



Event: Baby Dean’s 2nd Birthday Extravaganza


Theme: Dean Martin Celebrity Pig Roast



My ensemble was met with a mix of shock, horror, amusement and ogling. But in all honesty that could have been caused by any number of factors: A entire roasted pig laying on my kitchen table, 20 toddlers walking around with plastic martini glasses slurping (obviously non-alcoholic) Baby Dean-I Martinis; A father roasting his one 2 year old son (“ I’m not saying he is big for his age, but we wear the same size shirt”) Do you like how we used a kiddie pool as a cooler?







The romper was thrifted as a pants onsie- circa 1987 I am sure. The shoes, Via Spiga, were thrifted so long ago that I don’t even remember were I got them. This is the first time I wore them and I know they were thrifted because on the virgin soles there was a pile of 5 or 6 red stickers and the top one read “1.00.”



So now that the planning and preparation for this event is over I can get to my one true love- taking pictures of myself and posting them on the internet.

  1. You look amazing!!! And screw age...I'm almost 38 myself and wear whatever I feel like. LOL

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. So glad to be introduced to yours. Looking forward to following along :)

    Oh and yes you're right, nothing wrong with upstate at all. I just didn't want it to take up my entire weekend. It wasn't really a relaxing catskill getaway or anything. Just a family party and driving the mother-in-law all around NY. Drove from NYC to LI back all the way UPstate, then back to LI to drop her off and finally back to the city at like midnight. But at least I'm home today! :)

  4. Dude, you look smokin'. Smokin'. In a romper. Did I just say that? Yes, I did. By the way, I am dying over Dean Martin Celebrity Roast - DYING. See, if we lived closer together, my Jack could've showed up - as toddler Jack Benny, of course.

  6. I was there...and you rocked the dress! And the party was great. One my highlights at the party was when a four year old heckled your husband during his roast. xi

  8. Girl you look fabulous! And I love that you wore simple shoes opposed to this lady I saw wearing a romper yesterday in Target with caged heels! The horror!! I almost died. It's not what you wear, it's how you wear it. And you did it classy and sassy! xoxo
