the Rosebud Romper

I have been waiting for months to wear this little vintage Laura Ashley romper! Today, a blustery yet sunny day was THEE day to break it out. I had a thrifting date with the lovely Kerry D, and nothing says first-rate fun like second-hand finds. My inspiration: a Wayne Tippets photo of a vixen wearing a satiny ROSEPRINT one-piece pant suit. Today I  "followed suit" , and donned my cotton jersey rose- print-on-black "onesie," and dolled it up with striped socks and shiny heels. YOU LIKE?

"nothing says first-rate fun like second-hand finds."

Girl this romper is absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

Oh and on a side note I read your email the other day when I was super busy and didn't get a chance to reply, and now I can't find the original. So I have to tell you all of this on your blog. I appreciate your support more than I can explain in silly words. I always look forward to your comment, they are always so sweet/meaningful/sincere. I would love to do some sort of interview just email me again so I have your address!!!!!
