Ahh! I've wanted one, no I've been craving for one for so long, but it's so hard to find the perfect one.. I've seen some ysl seqenced ones, those are my favorites :)

Epoch Vintage said...

totally great finds..!!! If only the women I worked with (dayjob) had this kinda style..!! I'd probably be in trouble so maybe its a good thing they dont...lol. great post.. jeremy

janettaylor said...

I totally love the second one and the knitted Missoni! :)

Anika said...

Hello gorgeous CC, hope all is well with you.

I adore the idea of 'unionsuits', and especially well-crafted ones. The Ferragamo one is calling out to me. Yum!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend, and happy easter :)

Dooder City said...

I am on the fence with the unisuit. I feel like all great fashion ideas it can go totally great and totally wrong. I think girls should really be inclined to find one that works with their body. I do love the one with the shorts...the purple one.

dapper kid said...

These are sooo beautiful!! I am on the hunt for a good mens jumpsuit actually. Love the Miss Sixty piece and the Nine West satin jumpsuit is soo beautiful!

HuyLuong said...

Oh my....Natalia's extreme pose totally got me in love with that Chloe metallic jumpsuit. Another great collection there, thank you for the add!

HuyLuong said...

one thing: i don't know it is just my screen or Blogger's glitch but your text and pictures are separated. Like all the text in one column and images will just pack together. Sometimes make it hard to indicate which is which!

Tina { Luphia Loves... } said...

chic! love the Roksanda Ilincic one :)

Savvy Mode SG said...

i have been thinking about this j-suit deal. i have to wear heels, else my legs become chopped off.

Blair said...

I could never pull this off but there are such fun and beautiful options right now that I am would be willing to try! Love the phillip lim version. Have a lovely Easter weekend! xx, b

Hanako66 said...

I am really loving a few of these...such a playful look!

LoveMore said...

Pop Champagne said...

Oooh the pink Barbie dress is my fav!

MISS GLITZY said...

I really have to think about it and find the perfect jumpsuit. I'm kind of like the one by Isabel Marrant. Have a wonderful week-end, xoxo: MG

lauh-ren said...

i feel like these are risky to wear (the long pant ones) because it can either look great or terrible! i have been looking for a romper for so long.

Bella said...

Ahhh, I desperately need a 'one piece wonder'... okay, and maybe those B&W Fendi wedge heels too!

Tracy-Girl said...

I like the grey - sweat suit looking one! It reminds me of the outfit Jessica Simpson filmed her roller skating music video in :)

WendyB said...

I'm sticking to the one I got from Shrimpton Couture, I think! Do love the sequins though.

HoneyBunny said...

Love it! I think I prefer the short version:)

stylewithbenefits said...

Love all of these! I'm totally on a jumpsuit binge right now.

Erika said...

I want the Barbie one. Between the ruffles and the color I'm sold!

Notion said...

I'm not a big fan of this kind of one piece out-fit but with the heels it givesit the edge it needs to be sexy i love heels on women

Notion said...

i love women in heels

wrennybird said...

I've been looking for just the right one for a long time and that green one with shorts and short sleeves is it. *sigh*
P.S. I've linked to you; think your blog is well edited.

Fastidious Babe said...

freeTEYme said...

Siljesfashion said...

Love it! I bought a jeans romper last year, and got myself a denim jumpsuit just a couple of days ago.

G said...

i love all these short ones!

Cammila said...

So many jumpsuits, so little town. That Chloe pleated one is making me swoon...

Marcella said...

This may be highly predictable, but I can't help but gravitate towards the shiny sparkly ones!lol Another great post, I always feel strangely compelled to go out and buy whatever it is that you've featured...!

(btw my shoes from my last post were by Siren :)

Sol said...

Rompers/Onepieces weren't that popular this past summer here, so i couldn't really experiment with them. I'd love to see them around next spring/summer to see what i can do with them. They seem so comfortable!

Cassiopeia said...

:-D the first one and the orange-purple-yellow-turquoise-and-white patterned one are immense :-D great picks ;-)

I'm in LOVE with Rebecca Taylor's floral short jumpsuit. I have to go and get it....Great post!

The Clothes Horse said...

These are getting so popular...I still don't think I'd wear a romper or j-suit though.

Yuka said...

E said...

hmm.. a one piece would look a little silly on me (I'm sure the right one would look okay though) but they look fab on the models!

& thanks for the tip about what to eat after the gym, I will try a protein bar next time.

Trisch said...

I'd love to find a nice, short romper. The Phillip Lim one is perfect.

Girl Japan said...

I loved wearing Union suits.. well mine was more of the terry cloth variety but all the same.. I used to steal my mums and her heals (sneak off to school).

I've just fallen in love with the short green one..

Swell Vintage - Frankie said...

I'm all about onesies this season, and these are all gorgeous! x

ZombieLace said...

I remember looking at this post before but can't remember if I commented or not. Just wanted to note how AWESOME a good jumpsuit is-- I've been on the onesie wagon for a while now, and am glad to know this makes me fashionable and not a grandma. Not that the two are mutually exclusive.

Maud and Penny said...

you´re welcome dear, glad u like it !! xo
