I never really thought these words would come out of my mouth, but...I'm sort of interested in buying a "romper" ie, a onesie.
My interest was piqued during an episode of What Not To Wear a week or two ago when a woman came out of the dressing room in an adorable, chambray-type onesie with a cute belted tie at the waist.
I'm unsure where exactly a romper would fit into my wardrobe. Would I want a casual one that I could wear on the weekends for errands, etc. - maybe something that would work in the same way that shorts and a tank top do in the summer? Or would I want something a little nicer (maybe in a lush fabric?) that would work for maybe a nice restaurant/casual-ish party, thus replacing a summer dress?
I have two major concerns, though:
1) age appropriateness
The lengths on all the ones I see online look super short. Now I know this isn't a dress, so a little shortness isn't as shocking. But I definitely wouldn't want something shorter than the shorts I already own.
(For the record: I know that some people love to wear really short things [and that mini-stuff is in style right now], but just for my own personal taste, and considering how tall I am, I don't love things that are super, super mini.)
But here's my big question: are rompers age appropriate for me? This might be correlated with the length issue, as well. I've not really seen many women wearing them in Memphis. This makes me wonder if that's because the people wearing them are aged 15-25 and we aren't really frequenting the same places.
Thoughts, my fashionista friends?
