BIRTHDAY (JUMP)SUIT

Pepper Place Design Linen JumpsuitI’ve been searching everywhere for a jumpsuit for spring and summer. Something linen, striped and with short sleeves and wide legs. Pretty specific, I know. I found this one, from Pepper Place Design, about a year ago while browsing Instagram and instantly fell for it. But the sizing was limited and since it’s handmade I was uneasy about having it hemmed.

Fast forward to this spring. I hadn’t found a jumpsuit that fit the bill and was still dreaming about this one. I went out on a limb and asked Amy, who designs and hand makes these, if she’d hem it for me, knowing full well she’s a busy lady with lots of customers. Not only did she agree, she was incredibly helpful as I struggled to determine the appropriate length for something I had never seen in person, let alone tried on. She went out of her way and, as a result, I am over the moon with this jumpsuit and Amy’s shop.

This is exactly why I love buying clothes from the actual people who make them. I know that’s not always possible, but Instagram is a great resource for small shopping. And let me just note, at the $60 preorder price (or the $72 full price), this jumpsuit was more affordable than most of the others I had found online.

It’s softer than I expected, fits better than I thought it would (the length is perfect) and feels like it was made just for me. Because it was. It arrived just in time for my birthday so I wore it for a night out with my husband, welcoming 35 feeling comfortable, confident and, of course, stylish. Worth every penny.
