Jumpsuits, or roomy unitards as I like to call them, can be full on utilitarian, sometimes tailored and often sexy. Either way, I haven’t felt like wearing one since early last year. Causes? Maybe because it’s down trending. Maybe it’s because we’ve designed a ton of them at my job. I can’t really pinpoint the reason enough to say. But when I went to the Diesel outlet Black Friday weekend, I forgot about everything. 30% off of 50% of what? Jock strap looking thing? Sure, I’ll take 12! I was like a starved pig at a corn hash county fair.
So I bought this Diesel flightsuit, wore it once and hated it. When I threw it in my “for sale” pile, (less passionately impulsive) Moustache Man came to it’s rescue. “Let’s do a post and see how you feel.” And here it is, looking pretty darn cool.
I haven’t decided whether or not to keep it, but I’m certain when my inner mechanic re-surfaces, I’ll wish I had it. I guess that should be reason enough to stash it away for a rainy day.

This Halloween I’m going to be a fashion blogger who’s SOL with credit card debt (online shopping of course) and needs to pull a heist to pay it all off. It’s very original.
Today’s been one of those “I’ve been hit by a truck” feeling days, which require your boyfriend man’s clothes. I borrowed MM’s Rag & Bone military shirt to wear as a jacket. Despite the disturbing fact that it fits me, it hit the spot like a good chai does on a spooky, gloomy day.

. . . why are there so many people out? I bet they can see us from those buildings. Must try to pose . . . but don’t try too hard. Move feet!
Here are my thoughts as Moustache Man and I try to take some pictures out in the open. It is a horrifying experience for us introverts. But the last thing I want to do is bore you with more indoor shots. P says it’s an adventure worth making!

Sweat pants are for the home and the gym. Furthermore, if there is a message sewn on the rear they should be left in the closet. But these Nicholas K sweats are far from having a certain Juicy je nais sais quois. Below are four-ways to wear them. Available at funkylala.com in khaki.
