Thrift Inspiration, doing it the Jumpsuit way!

Well, thanks to my lovely mother in law, she tracked down this vintage Biba 80s jumpsuit for 50p for me!! It fits just right and I can't wait to wear it in summer!!

Hi Sharon!

What a lovely jumpsuit! I have a short summery linen jumpsuit. I do not know it what kind of trademark. I think it made in U.S.A. I love it, but your vintage Biba jumpsuit is cooooool! :)

Hi there - you seem to have a really nice mother-in-law! That jumpsuit she got you looks great on you, but overall jumpsuits are not an item of clothing that I fancy.

Sharon S said...

Hi Cate-thanks for your lovely comment-I think jumpsuits are a trend you either love or hate, LOL!

Your mother-in-law has such a great eye! What a good find...I'm hunting for one, too...

Unknown said...

Aaah jumpsuits ... I remember them being big in the '80s! I'm glad they're making a comeback. They're like dresses (1 pc. clothing) but more comfortable. Yay!

Love your white one, b.t.w.

Just found your blog. I love that you post a lot of pictures of yourself. I don't have the curves to rock a jumpsuit - I think I'd end up looking like I was dressed in my big sister's clothes - but I love watching everyone else wear it. Really sick.
