This or That: 80s yellow jumpsuit


Since I buy with my heart, I end up with a lot of pieces in my closet that I don't know what to do with. Sometimes they never see the light of day until packed up and sent off to be recycled.

This jumpsuit is one of those pieces. My intent was to sell it but it has some defects and I love it. It's on the outskirts of my comfort zone with it's totally 80s vibe but I'm ready to rock it. I'm just working on accessories that won't make it look so retro.With what though?

Black or brown accessories?



What would you do?

SN: I have my new camera. Now I need to figure out how to operate it.

Hm, as for 80s, I had those black shoes (exactly) in bone in 1979...

I was out shopping today and saw new jumpsuits, so I say go for it either with black or brown.

I say go for gray accessories.

I like the brown shoes. Take the sleeves off.

Love the jumpsuit! A purple clutch could work and I like the black/leopard belt and shoes!

We'll see. I have to find the right place for it. Maybe an 80s party!

Mama Violet said...

hmmm grey. I'll have to do a new board. Yay!!!

Mama Violet said...

Good idea...I better wear it one time with sleeves first though. I'd hate to screw it up.

I love purple with everything! I'll have to see what I can find in the closet or just do some shopping! What's your vote?

Thanks Tavia. I wouldn't mind that pair in my real closet instead of a virtual one!
