Mama Loves Style - The theme is Bond, James Bond

A while ago a friend sent me this jumpsuit.  I pulled it out of the bag, looked at it, shook my head and thought "this will never work on me", and folded it back into the carrier.  You know that feeling?  When you just assume that something won't suit you, and in my case that as usual, it would be too long, and being petite I would just feel frustrated at the amount of tailoring needed to make it work.

Wrong!

A few weeks later, I decided on a whim to try it on - it fit like a glove!  


I've been seeing super-hot gals wearing these trouser jumpsuits for ages and looking amazing in them, and wistfully wished for longer legs as usual, while also thinking that it just wouldn't suit me, and that I also just wouldn't have the confidence to pull it off.  But this number from ASOS Petite - why didn't I look at the label?!? - is absolutely fab, and I can't wait to wear it to a James Bond themed party with some killer heels later this week.  And without the tshirt underneath!

It was a good reminder to step out of my comfort zone, that confidence comes from inside, not from what you wear, and also that my friend is ALWAYS right when it comes to style.

  5. You look fabulous! I love the whole jumpsuit thing, but I can never seem to find one, other than a floaty Halston Heritage one I've had a few years that doesn't end up with the undercarriage bit going where I don't want it too ;) #AllAboutYou xx

  8. I think you look great in that jumpsuit! I find myself doing that sometimes too. Picking something out in a store and thinking that there is no way this would look good on me. Now, I try it on even if I think that just to see. Sometimes I am surprised and sometimes I'm not.

  12. You look amazing - it's all about the cut of the jumpsuit, it could've been made for you.
