Hark! A Denim Jumpsuit

I'd show you the link to where it lived on Free People except it blew out like
hot cakes and is gone.
Without A Trace.
(coincidentally one of my fave shows too btw). 

I have been doing such a great job of avoiding the fall fashions.  Clinging to my wallet.  Returning any crap that shows up from Missoni x Target (colossal waste of time).  Suddenly there it was.  Gleaming across my computer screen while some person or another talked on and on about something else that did not pertain to me (conference calls.  what's the purpose?).  No sooner did I click on the link and discover it was only still available in size Large when my dreams of doing Farrah Fawcett proud crashed to the the ground like a cz diamond shattered to bits on the concrete. Moments later size L also disappeared.  Thank God for pictures saved to the desktop.

Not to worry though.  Inspector Shoeseau is on the case.  Yes I realize it's a jumpsuit, but the premise is the same:  seek and find mission.  Denim jumpsuit at 12 o'clock.  

I've been meditating on this very article of clothing for months.  How is it that I missed an opportunity to make it a reality?  What was I thinking participating in Operation Wallet Conservation 2011?  Who am I and what have those chocolate chip cookies done to me?

Standby for a serious post.  One where I hopefully discover this item of beauty and bring it home to its rightful owner (that would be me).  The dream is still alive. Circa 1978.  Back when I didn't have cookies aka junk in the trunk.  Commencing le diet ASAP.

I got two things in the mail from missoni target yesterday. I'm definitely taking the hair clips/headband back...it was way too much for what it was. But I'm considering keeping the black pleated maxi skirt. I like it. Fiance doesn't. I can't decide if he would ever let me out of the house with him in it...that could be a deciding factor.

I hope you find that denim jumpsuit. I'm sure you would be able to come up with the best outfit for it!

Good Luck on your hunt! While I was home visiting my mum I noticed that she had two denim jumpsuits from college. You may want to watch at sears or jcpenny which ever has the kardashian line kourtney wears jumpsuits all the time and when I was there saturday there were at least five in different fabrics maybe you`ll get lucky and she`ll have denim.

Intriguing, but no, I can't do it. It is far too close to one of my most regrettable fashion choices of middle school, the denim overalls.

Good luck with the hunt!

Tara @ Haute Lunch said...

Oh no! How sad that it is sold out already! You would look awesome in a denim jumpsuit! I hope you find one soon!

Cara said...

Love the fringe bag! xo

Courtney Erin said...

Somehow I can see you rocking this like nobody's beeswax whereas it would make me look like I was wearing a really terrible 70s pimp costume. And that's what I love about you.

Those other people are fools-obviously this is a piece that only belongs on/can be pulled off by you, and those girls are going to be running around looking absolutely CRAZY in that jumpsuit. I say you attack the first S you see wearing it.

You are too funny! I'm sure you'll find an alternative very soon. Or mayhaps it will come back in stock magically! Either way, good luck!

The jump suit is awesome. I hope you are able to track it down! Paired with your leopard coat, perhaps?

The other day at work we all went out for coffee and this uber trendy girl walked in just wearing the hell out of a pair of red pants. I immediately thought of you & smiled :)
