Forever Frugal Friday

Dilemma: Keeping your work shirts tucked into your skirt or pants.

Solution: The Bodysuit

Yes, I am a bit hesitant to share this find with you, but awhile back the lovely Mrs. R expressed her frustration with keeping work tops tucked in with suits. She explained that she had been looking for bodysuits and I just about spit my mouthful of water into her face.

I was taken back to seventh grade when bodysuits were kind of cool, and even though I wore them, I hated them. Now, as I attempt to look somewhat “fashionable” at work, while still keeping it “corporate”, I am constantly struggling to keep my shirt from sneaking out the top of my skirt. I love the sophisticated and clean look of a tucked in shirt with a skinny belt, but when achieving the look, not so easy.

So my friends, it is with great hesitation (and a bit of embarrassment) that I let you all know that I am considering rekindling my friendship with the bodysuit. It will strictly be a “business only” relationship and probably hidden deep in the depths of my closet. I think this Ruffle Front Satin Bodysuit is a good start to our new relationship.

Okay, opinion time…

I think the bodysuit is…
A) Practical
B) Stupid
C) Awesome
D) All of the Above

This is not what I'd pictured when you said bodysuit...this is totally doable!

I won't lie... I might be giving this a try! Blog request: I'd love to see some of your ideas for full outfits for looking 'fashionably corporate.' I struggle with this!

honestly, i've been thinking about the body suit too so i'm glad you've brought up the dilemma. it's definitely practical and pulls off the desired look. i think it may be worth the hassle! it's definitely on my need to buy nest list.

I think totally practical for work, only.

I'm imagining myself trying to be seductive in it and getting all tangled up..

Ladies,

These were a "HOT" item back in the early to mid 70's when I was a teen. I think it's a hoot that the body suit has made a come back. See, wait long enough everything comes back into style.

okay, i bought one similar to this from VS a year or so ago....loved the way it was so perfectly "tucked in" looking, but seriously, it is WAY funny looking when you are getting dressed in the morning.

my husband saw me one day and started laughing - and never stopped. ;-)

it is not a flattering fit when that's all you have on(before putting on your pants). long story short, i no longer wear it.
