Friends, I was once like you. I used to look at the romper and think “ugh, I had one of those when I was six*, what, is that like the summer Snuggie for people who’ve given up on life?”
But friends, I am here to tell you that I have changed my ways. A romper came into my life and showed me all the promised glory of cute, chic, comfort and style.
You see friends, I toss and turn a lot in the night. Nightgowns get tangled, and I have yet to find my dream pair of Liz Lemon-esq pajamas in which to work on my night cheese.
But one day, at TJ Maxx, I spotted a pink tag on a garment that would change my life forever (One of my superpowers is the ability to spot a Betsey Johnson tag from a mile away). This deep purple, pink rose-print cotton romper with a ruffled black satin trim and little rosettes was calling my name. I bought it and took it home and promised him that if it looked stupid or was uncomfortable, I would take it back.
That night, I discovered that sleep did not have to be marred by twisted shirts and baggy boxers. I could lounge comfortably with coffee in the morning. And it looked fetching with my pink satin kitten-heel slippers.
Ian called it a “gateway garment” that would eventually lead to a Snuggie and, possibly a Hoodie Footie. But friends, I am here to tell you that those are THE DEVIL’S LIES. Go out and buy one in every shade and you will NOT be sorry you did!
(This does not mean, however, that the romper can be worn outside. Then it just looks stupid and frumpy.)
*It had Rainbow Brite on it. Top THAT!
