Monday Mode ☆ Black Romper

October 28, 2012
tags: ,

I bought a romper finally. I’ve seen it around and always wondered why rompers became so fashionable and popular. It didn’t speak to me as attractive or cute for some reason for a long time and the design of it didn’t look so practical either. Then one day suddenly I wanted to have one. I can’t explain how I came to that conclusion, but all of a sudden it looked cool and appealing to me. Now I own one in black and I love it.

Great thing about rompers is that you can change the look of it by accessorizing to make it look casual or somewhat chic and dressed up. What you see here is obviously casual. I like combining my romper with my converse, but if I would like to dress up, I would wear my heels with dressier jewelry such as bigger silver necklace or long pearl, bracelets, and bigger earrings.

When I looked up romper on google, I stumble upon this blog called The Tokyo Think Tank.

It was really random that I found this blog and I read an article on there about a romper called The Romper Rant [fashion?]. It was very entertaining and hilarious. I had tears in my eyes from laughing. It’s always good to hear what men think of certain style in fashion. I can see their perspective.

I must say that a jersey fabric romper like the one I am wearing is super comfortable. I have to be careful with what and how much I eat though because your stomach shows very easily.

ロンパーを最近買いました。ずっとロンパーが何故そこまで人気が出たのか不思議でした。そんなに可愛いとも思えなかったし、とてもお手洗いにも不便そうな気がしました。それなのに、突然ロンパーが欲しくなり、ついに手に入れました。何故意見が変わったかは自分でも不明なのですが、かっこいい!と思うようになりました。黒いロンパーを手に入れ、今ではとっても気に入っています。

ロンパーの良いところは、付けるアクセサリーによってカジュアルにもなるし、ちょっとよそ行き着っぽくもなる所です。私はコンバースと一緒にロンパーを着るのが好きですが、ちょっとお出かけ、という時はロンパーにもう少し派手目のアクセサリー、例えばハイヒールを履き、シルバーでもっと大きいネックレス、イヤリングそして腕輪を付けたりします。

ロンパーをグーグルで調べていたら、The Tokyo Think Tankというブログに遭遇しました。英語なのですが、とっても面白かったので、もし興味があったら、上の写真または記事のタイトルをクリックしてみて下さい。ロンパーを着る女性をからかっているのですが、納得なのと、視点が面白いと感じました。ロンパーを着ている女性をこう見ている男性も居るんだ、と勉強になりました。

私が買ったロンパーはジャージ生地で出来ていて、とっても着心地が良いです。ただ、食べ過ぎてお腹がぽこっと出ると、とても目立つデザインなので、気をつけなくてはいけないですね。

      Oh, I didn’t put where I got the romper. I got it from Target in the U.S.
