romp·er (rŏm'pər) n.
1. One that romps.
2.A loosely fitted, one-piece garment having
short bloomers that is worn especially by small children for play.
The definition of the word romper states that this is an item of clothing that small children wear. But not anymore! Rompers are a great summer outfit. It’s easy to wear because once you put it on; all you have to worry about is accessories and shoes.
In my opinion, rompers really came back into fashion around 2 summers ago. As I started becoming a fan of Katy Perry I noticed that she wore a lot of these really cute and colorful outfits that of course were rompers. AND I'm not saying that Katy Perry singlehandedly brought rompers back into fashion but I think she did help a little bit :)
Around this time it was very hard to find any rompers in stores but thankfully the next summer more websites and stores started carrying them. And now, it’s hard to walk into a clothing store without laying your eyes on a romper!
So here are some of the rompers that I have found on the wonderful world that is the internet:
I found this classy little romper at http://www.modcloth.com/. It's called "wings of a dove" and it's $59.99 .This romper is more of a fancier one because of the sleeves and the lace.
This "Pompidou" romper can be found at http://www.anthropologie.com/ for $58.00. I figured it would be more expensive but I guess not. Oh and I highly recommend to check out the website. I swear if I had all the money in the world I would buy all my clothes from anthroplogie.
This romper can be found at http://www.macys.com/ for $59.00. I THINK THIS ONE IS ADORABLE! I love the polkadots. This romper would look even more adorable if you decided to wear a flower in your hair : )
This "Moon Collection" romper can be yours for $48.00 at http://www.shopkitson.com/
I wish we had a kitson boutique because the print on this romper is so gorgeous.
This romper is from the brand Pins and Needles and can be found at http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/ for $48.00. I know it looks more like a dress but I swear there are shorts under there! This one is adorable and perfect for a summery day.
This Volcom "take cover" romper I found at http://www.pacsun.com/ This romper is more of a casual one that you could easily put over your bathing suit whenever you go to the beach. This one is $36.50.
I think this one is really cute and really inexpensive compared to the other ones that I listed. This romper can be found at http://www.wetseal.com/ for only $24.50. I'm thinking I might try and find this one whenever I go to the mall soon :D
So I hope this post tickled your fancy. It took me longer than expected...probably because I was such in a bad mood yesterday. Well better late than never.

I’m yawning right now but you can’t tell. Taraji P. Henson wore a silver/lilac dress by Mandalay. She usually wears really great clothes and has amazing style for award shows but this one is just really boring and the shoes don’t help.

Some of my two favorite designers made appearances at the premiere: Elie Saab and Marchesa!
Kristen Stewart wore a white Elie Saab mini dress and paired it with Christian Loboutin shoes. At first I wasn’t really feeling the dress, but not that I look at it more, I actually really like it a lot. I’m glad she decided to wear a white color instead of the black that she has been wearing lately. BUT I would have loved the dress if it were just sleeveless.
Dakota Fanning wore an Elie Saab dress with Christian Loboutin heels and OMG do I love those shoes! The dress is gorgeous but I think she would have looked prettier if she would have worn a dress with a more vibrant color because this pale color make her look a little washed out. But maybe she’s just really into her role as a vampire??
At Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara Ball, the lovely Lady GaGa wore a custom made latex jacket by Francesco Scognamiglio, face mask by Victor&Rolf , jewelry by Chopard and shoes by Tatehana Noritaka. The shoulders and the sleeves are amazing in this jacket, I wish I could have seen how he made this. I love this whole look but I could have gone without the facemask. I normally don’t like it when she covers up her face. Which is why I added a picture of her without it!

Salma Hayek wore a YSL dress that’s perfect for summer and paired it with a red belt and shoes. It’s a classic outfit. I’ve always loved the colors black, red, and white worn together. She looks beautiful but I think the matching dress and belt are a little much. Right? Or is that just me. I don’t know! Killer shoes though!
Jamie Chung wore a Tibi watercolor silk dress. I love everything about the dress! The colors and the shape look amazing on her. I love that she chose to wear shoes with a lighter color because anything else would have clashed and been too busy.
IF ANYONE WANTS TO BE A SWEET ANGEL THEY SHOULD BUY THIS DRESS FOR ME! IT’S ONLY ABOUT 400 DOLLARS! THANK YOU
Whitney Port decided on this Moschino little patterned mess and black heels for the awards show. I expect better from her since she is a fashion designer and all and she should know what looks good! It just looks so blah! Hopefully she’ll wear something better next time around!
Miranda Cosgrove appeared in a very fun and youthful Diane Von Furstenburg printed dress with Christian Loboutin shoes. I love Miranda Cosgrove’s outfit choice because she still looks her age, unlike a certain backwoods hillbilly that can’t be tamed …Anyways she is setting the perfect example that you can still dress edgy without showing EVERYTHING! Her shoes are adorable!!!
