Urban Jungle


If there’s one thing that I’ve learned about life in Los Angeles, expect anything and everything! I can go from Skid Row to the swankiest of areas and almost everything in between in one single day. Each area has a personality of its own, and the characters that you come into contact with are often quite entertaining!

For instance, while snapping a few photos in this look we ran across an array of personalities. Two people in separate instances stopped to ask us for money, both including rather lengthy explanations as to why our contributions were essential. Others folks stopped and stared, along with their children. One car parked alongside the road over on the side street and decided to take in the entire shoot with the afternoon breeze. 
A security guard helpfully managed to keep a few people at bay. For the cherry on the top a resident of the building where I snapped these shots graciously serenaded us with loud music and a tambourine, even opening their windows so that we wouldn’t miss a beat.

The next photo opp location (which happened on a different day) appeared to be somewhat secluded, which by the way- is always my ideal setting for taking pictures. However there we noticed a posted sign that said that you must have permission to film and or take pictures...Needless to say we had to check in with the owner before getting started.

About 5 pictures in, she came out with an update: Although we could take pictures, they could only be in certain spots, and we had to avoid shooting the entrance, as they’re currently under contract to film a TV show. In LaLa land there is filming of some kind practically every single day!

I wore this jumpsuit twice, as I often do with new additions to my wardrobe collection; The hubby says that he knows I really like an item if I wear it at least 3 times in a row. Wearing an item multiple times straight away helps me to get a true feel for the piece and to generate more ideas as to how I’d like to wear it.

This jumpsuit is a fantastic olive color, and the fit is wonderfully generous. The pockets are situated on the front, and sit deep allowing for full functionality. I cannot stand pockets that are merely for show/decoration! I’m on the short side, the length of the pant legs were quite long even with four inch heels on. If you’re tall and curvy this jumpsuit is a win-win! Otherwise, it’s a good idea to consider having the legs taken up a bit. Last but certainly not least, the fabric is very lightweight. I found control undergarments to be essential.

Jumpsuits are such fun pieces to wear, and practical for a number of occasions. Now more than ever a variety of options are available for the full figured beauty. You can shop this jumper for under $50, use promo code "joi” for an additional 5% off.
Until next time Loves!

  4. Just saw this on the gram and I Love the fluidity of the fabric. How it hugs your kurves is such a bonus. I do not wear jumpsuits due to the constant bathroom action, but I Love it on YOU.
