Salsa @ Lula Lounge

Oh man – this past weekend was a fun one!   I had the pleasure of celebrating a stagette Salsa style!!!

The Lula Lounge (Dundas W/Duffrin Sts) in Toronto has a number of party packages, which makes celebrating a special event easy-peasy.

A gaggle of us -some more tipsy than others- with flowers in hair and penis-staws in hand …. visit my Instagram for that one friends 😉 … arrived for dinner (any appetizer + any main + any dessert), a beginner salsa lesson and then got to dance the night away to three sets by the live salsa orchestra (with a DJ in between sets.)  And before the night was done, we were served up a round of Blushing Bride shooters!!!  T.R.O.U.B.L.E. 😀

My Entree: Red Snapper over Polenta, with zucchini-corn-bean salad    ~~~~~  My Dessert: Poached Pear. Delish!

Much thought had to be given to outfit choice for the evening.  The MOH (matron of honour) assured us that there was no ‘theme’ requirement in the dress-code for the party she had planned, which naturally translated to:

Saturday Night Titty City Attire was encouraged and welcomed!!! 😛

I couldn’t find a hot pink hair flower …so feathers had to do 🙂

‘The Girls’, who too often are forced into hiding in an effort of making others more comfortable in their presence, extra precautions always need to be taken to keep them at demure levels of exposure.

But not tonight.

Tonight, “Thelma & Louise” (aka…’The Girls’) were coming out!!!  STAND BACK!

All Black Everything – jumpsuit style!!!

The pants are a bit on the long side on my 5’2 bod.  So this outfit only really works with a significant heeled shoe.

I picked up these black booties recently – while in search for sandals for my upcoming Asian Adventure –  from Payless on sale for $33 and they work perfectly.

Now, I bought this all-black jumpsuit online, from Reitmans, just after Christmas.  Buuuuuuut due to the amount of boobage I’ve avoided wearing it much.  This one-piece has a sexy deep-v, back tie-up belt and nice broad sleeveless-shoulders to hide a supportive bra – requirement for fast paced salsa dancing.

And….there are pockets!!! Perfect for lip gloss, iPhone, credit card & ID.  BOOM!

End of the night outfit shot — bridesmaids came to my hair flower aid 🙂

How I Got The Look:  Black jumpsuit from Reitmans; Black booties from Payless;  Necklace from SexyPlus Clothing; Earrings from Aldo; Hot pink feathered headband, gifted.

Now I wasn’t always a fan of the plus-sized jumpsuit.  For more jumpsuit action on the blog ….click here and here and here.

Onesie for me

You must have notice all the hype around Jumpsuits and Rompers in plus sized fashion these days….especially for summer.  Wondering what your thoughts are on them?

A few months ago I did a roundup post on this, trying to figure out if this trend is for me.  Click here for my initial reactions to this plus-size fashion trend.

And then while perusing the sale racks of Reitmans this happened..20140803-172246-62566250.jpg

I wasn’t quite sure this trend was for me …. a onesie in any season seemed to be more trouble than it was worth.  Plus, the length and hip-to-shoulder ratios would typically be all off on my petite-plus sized bod.  Any any alterations that would be required would only increase the price point I was willing to pay for THIS fashion trend.

But this gem fit!  I found it in straight-sizes as an XXL …it wasn’t too long at all, the shoulders were only slightly larger than required AND it was only $19!  #winning  🙂

What I really like about this jumpsuit/onesie is the thoughtful details of the flattering v-neck and the added bonus POCKETS for your phone and lip gloss!

I could totally see myself taking this from DAY-TO-NIGHT with a chic blazer and pointy-toed pumps, to get this office/boardroom ready. Transition to evening cocktails or weekend fun with layers of gold jewelry and metallic sandals.

This jumpsuit could easily be a great  option to keep your packing light on vacation. Pair it with simple flat sandals to stroll by day, and wedges for an evening look.

An additional bonus…is that there’s a slight elastic ankle, which allowed me to wear the pants shorter if I wanted to…like I did above.  With the interesting dark navy pattern of the jumpsuit, I chose to keep all the other accessories simple and gold to standout a bit more, along with my white ceramic MK watch.  And lastly, I added a skinny gold belt to the waist, as it is the only GOLD belt I own.

Sorry for the headphone cord getting in the way of this belt pic…

Ideally, I would have liked to have worn this onesie with a more substantial gold belt…like the ones I’ve been coveting on my Polyvore collage board:

How I Got the Look:

White cross body w/gold stud purse, gold drop earrings & gold coral necklace, Aldo Accessories; Gold & white sandals, Le Chateau; Navy patterned jumpsuit, Reitmans; Michael Kors watch; Gold skinny belt, Dressbarn (from an old dress)
