to bodysuit or not to bodysuit? THAT is the question

Back in 1986, Donna Karan started th leotard sans pants trend that expanded from the runway to both high and low fashions. Fast forward to 2009 and here I am, getting ready to be the original lady gaga aka the wildly androgenous Ms. Grace Jones and I think it's funny that everything I need for the look already exists in my closet.

There’s no doubt that a leotard sans pants is sexy. The bodysuit’s real appeal lies in its streamlined simplicity. It's back with a HUGE shibang! Nicole Phelps at says "Wear it solo for sleek lines, or layer on a blazer or a pencil skirt, as Francesco Scognamiglio and Hussein Chalayan did, respectively, on their Spring catwalks. Celine’s Phoebe Philo and Stella McCartney, both champions of practical chic, showed one-pieces this season. And Karan herself put Sasha Pivovarova in a sleeveless version with a breezy skirt." bodysuit or not to bodysuit? it's your perogative fashionistas. Caution to the wise: You've got to know when to walk away. Watch the scale. Know what works for you.

It's back, live it, love it, breath it. Enjoy.
