Not Acceptable - Rompers
I recently received an inquiry as to the acceptability of "rompers." For those who, like myself, had no idea what a "romper" was, it is actually just a deceptive term for a one-piece jumpsuit - like a dress with pants or shorts instead of a skirt bottom, similar to the outfit Doc wore at the end of Back to the Future when Marty McFly had to be blasted into the future in his DeLorean. In any event, now that these monstrosities have been brought to my attention, I am able to officially declare rompers in no way acceptable. They look like something a magician's assistant would have worn in a Doug Henning magic show in the 70s. They are shapeless bags that appear to come with dumps already taken in them.
If, during an attack of insanity or boredom, you accidentally buy a romper, you'll be like Liam Neeson at the end of that great date movie, Schinder's List, where he takes off a gold pin from his lapel and says "This, this could have saved one more!" when you look in your closet in three years and see a romper and shoe booties and cry and scream at yourself for buying them when you could have spent the money on Louboutins or personal training sessions.
