I take back what I said about harem pants
I had no idea this day would come. In fact, I cannot believe the words came out of my mouth when they did. You see this all happened several weeks ago when a friend of mine and I went to just try on clothes at Diilard's. I tried on seriously ridiculous prom dresses (have you seen this seasons atrocities? Ugh), a cute retro inspired dress and a black jumpsuit I picked up on my way to the dressing room. Even though I'm not shopping, I seriously love to try on clothes and look silly.
Of course the dresses looked awful, the retro one looked amazing, and then I put on this jump suit. I turned to my friend Adrienne and said, "Um, I actually really love this." She replied, "It looks really great on you!". And as I scanned my body in the mirror, I stopped... this jumpsuit had harem pants... and I liked it.
The designer is Kensie and I contacted Mel asking if they had a picture of this jump suit anywhere since I tried it on, loved it, and it had harem pants. I told Mel my story, and she went to work looking for a picture of it. A few days later, I get a message from Mel saying, no luck on the picture. I was bummed but just put it out of my mind and realized I wouldn't have to share the fact that I am now putting my foot in my mouth... Then... I go out to the mailbox and there is a package from Mel... It felt squishy... and I was thinking, oh maybe she sent me some of her crafty knitting or something... I open it up and felt the slinky black material. Looking at my roommate, I exclaimed, "She sent me the jumpsuit...". I pulled it out and read the sweet note. (Really, Mel is so sweet!)
The first time I wore this jumpsuit, I dressed it down for work. I kept it simple with a t-shirt layered underneath and flip flops. It is comfortable and so incredibly easy to wear. I can unroll the pants and feel instantly chic. I cannot wait to wear this out during a hot summer night, cool as a cucumber sipping on a nice cold drink.
