THOUGHTLESS DRESSING

Jun 27, 2012


Zara jumpsuit // CÉLINE platforms

I'm a bit OCD about packing for trips (amongst a million other things). It's almost like I try to outdo myself each time by packing less and less. Black is obviously my go-to for travelwear since it requires the least amount of coordination and/or thought. But this time I took it another level - one piece dressing.

I had been on the lookout for a shapeless relaxed jumpsuit for some time and a last minute trip to Zara yielded this find (alternatives here, here, and here). I saw it hanging sack-like, without it's intended belt and immediately recognized the potential for minimal summer dressing. Took the original lace off as soon as I got home and replaced it with leather. It was the perfect thing to pack for NY with easy day to night transitioning. 

Laziness at it's finest.

yes to jumpsuits this summer, esp shapeless ones!! (well, i'ts horrible to say but u've gotta be at least skinny-ish to pull off shapeless stuff and still look good) but love the OCD minimal packing, same as me! lol.. but shoes are a whole other deal, more please.... lol

for me it's either black or print looks, not much in between oddly hahaa... maybe some texture ones too but thats it-

Ooo. I saw that jumpsuit and passed over it because of the lace. Wish I'd been as smart as you. The leather is a fantastic idea, and you look fantastic as well.

you look rad! please teach me your minimalist packing skills, I hate being the girl with the overstuffed sausage looking bag...also, your hair is looking killer these days!!

Anonymous said...

It's a wonderful concept in theory, but if you can embellish it with some leather, why not design your own jumpsuit? That seam down the middle just screams poor quality/weird production shortcuts.

Gloria Quiroga said...

Of course your version is much better than Zara's! you are great.

The jumpsuit is flawless. I love that you added the leather in place of the lace. It's minimal in such a badass way.

May the force be with you.
