An Impluse

11 Jun 2012 Permalink

Whenever I go shopping, thrifting or otherwise, I always try to be as unimpulsive as possible.  Putting thought into the items that I buy…trying to make sure anything that ends up in my cart can easily work with the current things in my closet.

With that said, when I came across this little piece, I lost any and all senses and promptly headed to the register…

This one-piece is way too short for me to wear out and about in public!  It’s perfect for lounging around the house though…but for the real test, I needed to see how well it would play with other pieces in my wardrobe.  And so I headed home for my favorite part of shopping…playing dress-up with my new purchase!

This strapless romper works great as a top!  I paired it with this blue pleated skirt, with this short pink skirt, and with these striped pants.  Next post I’ll be wearing it with a different skirt…

After putting together a few fun outfits, I don’t feel so bad about breaking my rule on this $2 romper!

    It’s amazing! I try to be logical in my shopping too – but I find sometimes it is those impulsive buys that end up being big wardrobe staples! Perhaps my impulsiveness knows me better than I do?

    I think this is a great purchase even if it was an impulse. I can’t wait to see you wear it. I love it with the blue skirt or pink shorts. So cute!

    Yay for keeping that romper! I love how you re-fashioned it into a cute top for layering under pieces! Great idea! :)

    PS. What camera do you use for shooting? Lovely pics!

      Thanks, Chioma! For pictures I use a Canon Rebel t2i with f 1.8 lens. And I also play around with picmonkey for editing ; )
