As soon as I laid my eyes on this floral print jumpsuit, I was ready for it! So, I picked out my usual size and I happily waited for it to come in the mail. It sure did and like always, I was so excited to try it on. As soon I pulled it out of the package I immediately noticed it was complete see through, hmmm....not what I was expecting. Anyway, I tried it on and everything was going very well until one of the straps broke while I was trying to pass it over my head. "Aww, man", I said, very sadly.

Like they say, "When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade". In my case, Walktrendy was nice enough to send me this jumpsuit but sometimes things don't always go as planned. I really liked the jumpsuit so I deccided to figure out of a way to style it to make it work for me. I just wish i thought of it much earlier. I did only two things:

Since they were cross-back straps, i cut the one that broke off completely and just sewed the other strap into a halter neck by simply stitching one end to the jumpsuit.

I am not sure how else to wear a cross-back mega see-through outfit made with chiffon other than to wear the the right undergarments and outerwear or better still, sew in a lining. Luckily, it was still spring weather, so i wore a pair of tights, cut off the feet to make it 'em footless tights and threw on an open-front top over it. I order for me  can wear it on hotter days, i will have to take it to a good seamstress to line the inside for a permanent coverage. Besides that all that fixing i had to do, I really like the retro style jumpsuit, it is so trendy and the bold prints definitely do make you stand out.

Thank you all for stopping by. Now you may share your thoughts.

When I saw a photo of this outfit on your IG, I just immediately fell in love with it. The colour combination and print of the jumpsuit are simply beautiful.

It's so good that you managed to fix the straps and still wear it!
