It may look like separates, but this is, in fact, a jumpsuit – no less than a vintage DVF jumpsuit.
You can just see at the sides it’s joined at the back, but with that clever tie-front it looks like a (very modest) crop top and trousers. It was gifted to me by The House of Pandora, the same vintage shop that lent me the tapestry coat and patterned shorts suit set I wore (and nearly wore, respectively) to London Fashion Week. Their selection is amazing – owner Louise has the best eye for fabulous vintage pieces and sources her stock from all over the world. If you want someone to take the work out of scouring the web for great vintage pieces for you, The House of Pandora is the place to go.
I make no apologies about the fact that I absolutely love this jumpsuit. I can understand it may not be to everyone’s taste – it does look a little like pyjamas – but as regular readers know I’m past caring about what I ‘should’ be wearing at my age, or whether anyone thinks something flatters me or not… I love this jumpsuit and I’m gonna wear it! It was a hot day so it kept me lovely and cool, it was comfortable for a two-hour journey in the car down to Cornwall, it’s by Diane von Flippin’ Fürstenberg – what’s not to love…?
Do you still wear things that you know others may consider unflattering or age inappropriate? Have you ever had someone comment that you shouldn’t be wearing something: how did you respond? Do share in the comments – and please please please take a moment to read Glenda’s spot-on thoughts about the same subject 🙂
