Tightwad Tuesday: Becca 'Kaleidoscope' Strapless Terry Romper for Less

Darlings, there are very few fashions that excite me to a point where I find myself counting down the days until the weather is just right for accoutering myself in them. Especially when the style in question makes me long for sultry weather that simply screams for barely-there shorts, and easy breezy tanks which flutter around your form in a fashion synonymous to that of a newly hatched butterfly emerging from it’s cocoon, and spreading its wings for the very first time. Yet the romper falls into this very category.

While sporting a cut that I have not found myself donning since my days of frolicking within the confines of a playground sandbox; the romper has become the object of my affection. The singular style that makes my heart skip a beat, and leaves me wishing night and day for the fast arrival of summer just so that I can wear them; despite the fact that I am a girl who typically adores the cool breezes which so often accompany the arrival of fall. But not all rompers fit the bill. The piece in question must be constructed of the playful, pastel shades one associates with the cool creativity of the warmer months, coupled with a sophisticated aesthetic. Becca’s ‘Kaleidoscope’ Strapless Terry Romper fulfills both of these prerequisites to a T.

Frisky in its design, the blouson bodice shaped by the drawstring waist creates a svelte silhouette; while the scalloped embellishment trimming the strapless terry romper adds a whimsical effect to the style, which is only made stronger by its eye-catching, confetti color – a sure sign that the wearer is destined to encounter all sorts of celebratory good times when wearing such a garment, whether experienced via a beachside bonfire or saucy soiree which calls for dancing barefoot through an elegant hotel ballroom.

‘Tis truly a shame that a creation capable of ingratiating itself into any and all situations that one may find themselves encountering during the course of their smoldering summer vacation, should be somewhat overpriced. For at $68.00, the ‘Kaleidoscope’ Strapless Terry romper is quite a bit out of the budget range for the average Joe (or rather, the average Jane). Forever 21’s Basic Tube Top Romper, on the other hand, is perfectly priced for the frugal fashionista.

Yes my loves, I realize that the Basic Tube Top Romper lacks the drawstring waist and scalloped edging of its high-priced bestie; but at $8.80, it’s a cheery compromise to the Becca beauty that will brighten up your wardrobe in no time flat!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?

Fashionably yours!
