Fashion Fix: Summer Romper

Have you ever lusted after a trend so much that it made you sick? That's how I felt about rompers. Rompers were a leg lovers dream and I was itching to rock them last summer....that was until I started trying them on and realized they weren't made for me. My body type can be tricky to shop for. I'm only 5'2", have athletic legs and a 36dd top ... to sum it up finding a romper that flattered my shape was a mess. They were either too loose and sloppy looking on me (my boobs push out the top so I need the waist to be accented), too tight in the butt (having a wedgie isn't the business), or not for anyone with big boobs. It was a pain in my ass constantly seeing women rock this trend and feeling like I was left out lol...

Well, my luck changed because this weekend I scored two GORGEOUS Lucca Couture rompers from Urban Outfitters. I miss spending lunch breaks browsing the racks of the State St. store, but AZ has done me right. This flirty romper is affordable at $58 and comes in 7 colors but I narrowed it down to my favorite color (black) and the bright blue! I can't wait to pair this with some of the hot shoes I've been scoring. I'm a year late on the romper craze but these fit me like a dream so it was worth it.

Just because something is trendy doesn't mean it can't be for you. Don't let your body ever hold you back from a style that you like... there's always a way to find something that flatters you and that you can make your own!

Those are too cute! I am also on this romper craze. I love them! I am going out to find one today for my friend's party Saturday. Thank heavens that most of these look great on me. I'm 5'6 and more on the lean side. I do have junk in the trunk so I have to be careful when buying these too short. I can't have booty cheeks hanging out, lol!

Very cute, I really like that black one...sidenote: Did you move back to AZ?

@ Mrs Denga - Yes, booty cheeks hanging out isn't the business. Leave that to the ghetto chicks on the back of motorcycles this summer lol. Urban Outfitters has a BUNCH of rompers right now. Tons of different styles and colors. You may wanna go there... I'm sure Akira has a decent selection too... but Urban Outfitters has a better quality, in my opinion.

@ Dana - Yep, I'm back in AZ for a while...

I LOVE rompers. My favorite one is from American Apparel. Rompers are so comfortable and you can dress them up or down. Looks like I need to make a trip to Urban Outfitters :)

@ Angelina - You definitely should! There are 2 Urban Outfitters close to me and one doesn't carry the same inventory as the other. I don't know what the ones are like around you, but definitely try to go to the larger one. One of their stores had 2 colors... the other had 6!! lol..

I have scored some adorable rompers for the low low. I purchased 1 black one with ruffles in the front from Marshall's for only $11 and a multicolored one for $14.99. I got a black one from TJ Maxx for $9.99, and a plaid one from Old Navy on clearance for $14.49.
