The LBJ: The Little black Jumpsuit

Recently I’ve been seeing jumpsuits everywhere from on television to in stores. Jumpsuits in black are quickly gaining popularity and are becoming the new must have alternative to the LBD ( little black dress). 
Jumpsuits come in various colours, styles and fabrics so there is always something for everyone.

Luckily for me I found this particular one in the back of my closet, which  I purchased years ago.
I then paired this plain black jumpsuit with this vintage gold sequin blazer, however it can be paired with many other different items.


As part of my no shopping challenge for the month of March, I’ve been forced to utilize what I already own. I will be honest, I have not been able to  completely curve my habit of shopping, but I have generally been doing well with not buying.


Want to be able to shop your own closet successfully?

 Here are three general tips to shop your closet:

1. Know what you have: that means regular closet cleaning and organizing

2. Invest in more classic and basic items that never go out of style and make sure to take good care of them so you have them longer (example of basic pieces :white button-up, a great fitting pair of jeans)
3. Be creative

    Like the way you pulled this look off! The embellished statement jacket paired with gold heel sandals, metallic belt, earrings discretely adding color and texture to Glam up the jumpsuit and still kept it minimalistic … Genius! ;)I own three jumpsuits (suspender type) would purchase more, but … they can be somewhat awkward in public restrooms! o.O I'm not a blogger but know how demanding it is, Smart move having your Sister as your Photographer and adding another Contributor should relieve the pressure making it easier to keep things Fresh and Fun for each of you! Intelligent move!Thanks for sharing! Job Well Done! Have an Awesome Day/Weekend! 🙂

      Cheri, thank you for your uplifting comments! I agree they are a challenge when it comes to public restrooms. The things we do for fashion :)Stay blessed and thank you for your support.

    It's such a fantastic outfit! I love the addition of sparkle here and there, very glamorous and reminds me of the 1970s and studio 54 at their best. I think the idea of rewiring is a great one – I am not a frequent shopper and do follow similar "rules" when it comes to digging into my own wardrobe. I think it's something you learn over time – to be very selective when picking new things, but then enjoying them more because they really spoke to you in the first place. x

      Hi Natalie! Thanks for your comment. When I think of the 1970s I picture vibrant colors, bold patterns partnered with spunky attitude :)What are your "rules". Would love to learn about them if you are open to sharing.
