THE Jumpsuit

I don't even know where to start with this thing. A couple weeks ago, while trying to decide the 6 (finally narrowed it down to 3) outfit changes I was going to have at my birthday party, (it was like my wedding you guys, no joke, it was ridiculous), I was perusing online vintage stores and stumbled upon this jumpsuit. At first I thought I thought of it as a joke and emailed my mom the link with "Sweet Sixteen Outfit?" in the title, but then the more I thought about it the more I liked it, and then finally I just had to have it for the big night. Long story short, I had so much fun in this thing. It was incredible. I think a lot of people just stared at me in disbelief and couldn't swallow the fact that I was currently in a head to toe blue, green, purple geometric ... something. But whatever, it didn't matter what they thought. All that mattered was that I liked it. And I did.
Cause hey, I'm 16.

I've gotten a lot of references to the jumpsuit being "Pucci-esque" which I completely agree on. I still can't figure out the date on this thing, though. I thought it was from the 80s, my aunt and her friend argued that it was 70s, but the colors didn't seem right for the 70s. My mom had to agree that it was 80s. Maybe a happy median is a 70s inspired piece from the 80s... yes?

Vintage blue, purple, green jumpsuit from Nasty Gal, my current favorite vintage jade earrings given to me by my mom for my birthday , American Apparel neon nail polish, flea market rings turquoise and tigers eye.

So very Pucci! I think it makes for a very functionally yet pretty bike riding outfit. It's so hard to pull off but you managed to look good in it!

i agree, very pucci-esque! and i was hoping so hard that those earrings would be available online because they look absolutely beautiful but of course, they are vintage.
i seriously admire your confidence to wear something like that. it's insane!

mad unitard !

Love that the brand was called Nasty Gal. I was curious so found it online, but not your jumpsuit. Curious: is it a one-off vintage piece? Definitely Pucci-esque, I'm guessing it might actually be FROM the 60s. In any case, it's amazing, and you look great in it, and hey, you're 16.


Happy birthday!

Colour is everything!

alexandratherese said...

Wow. That is one feisty birthday outfit! Love the fact that you had three changes, and why not?! The geometric prints and the colours are dazzling, I'm intrigued to know what style and colour of shoes you wore with it?

Steffen said...

omg that jumpsuit is insane!!

blue roses said...

you are so freaking adorable all the time i cannot stand it.... i wish we had been friends when i was 16. kindred spirits perhaps.

you look beautiful, and indeed, you are straddling quite a few eras with that one. note that barbie had a line of dresses that look almost exactly identical.

My bet is that it comes from the '89-'92 period. A '60s revival catsuit like that was really big at the time! I just did a little retrospective on it.
