All In One

The revival of the romper (and also extending to playsuits, jumpsuits, catsuits, and bodysuits) - a style that's been with us for a few fashion seasons now. Personally, I have shrills of glee every time I come accross an "all in one" and have probably bought and sold more of these vintage beauties in the past year than any other vintage seller I know.  And for wearability - there's hardly a match for style, comfort, and ability to ride a bicycle in!

Let's go back in time.... to Spring of 1991, the March issue of Sassy magazine fashion editorial All In One.....

"You're a busy girl.  So why would you bother putting on two pieces of clothing when one super romper will give you image, wearibility, newness and fun?" - march sassy p.39

Padma was wearing one crazy ass bright green jumper a few few weeks ago on Top Chef. The contestants' thinly disguised reaction shots were priceless.

Yes, it is a sad day when jumpers haven't made their acceptance in the media. It will probably be a couple more years before people can get over it.

all so cute! but the ladies must pee, so these aren't a part of my closet...but for once in the 70s, but I am in awe of the gals who hold the romper out of the toilet and look swell!
