The one item I wanted from Top Shop was not at the NYC store and sold out online. It was a perfect black silk one-piece with a tie waist. I must have deleted the image in a fit of rage. But I'm still obsessed; I think the silhouette is a new basic.
Finding these online is a treasure hunt because the webmasters don't have a category for the hybrid. I guess the UK determined they'll last because Top Shop and others have a category for them, be it jumpsuit, onesie, romper, playsuit ... (further enabling your regression to age 4).
That being said, there are some actual dresses below too - all the style of a romper with none of the crotch!
Left to right from top:
1. Thakoon, $800 (a dress).
2. Top Shop, $90. Go! Don't let bad shopping timing happen to you!
3. Miss Selfridge, UK 35.
4. Heartloom, $145 (another dress).
5. Forever 21, $22.80. That extra 80 cents'll kill ya.
6. Vivienne Westwood, $915. That extra $800 bucks ...
