Fashion, Style

Just for you

Because I am so incredibly fashion forward, I receive Matches Fashion’s customised email newsletter. Or maybe I once ordered a pair of flip flops and have since been on their automated mailing list – who knows? The other day, this popped into my inbox:


boiler suit

I am not sure if I should laugh, cry, or be terribly insulted. Seriously? Just for me? Like in ‘everybody else gets to dress decently but we are going to have a laugh about you’?

After googling doing some serious research on the topic, I realised that Kate Moss, Gwen Stefani and Stella McCartney recently have all been spotted in the above attire. I also realised that they all looked completely hideous in it.

Boiler suits should be reserved for people who have to protect their Sunday bests from, let’s say alien slime. Boiler suits might also be worn by people who wear diapers. But that’s where the story ends.

Ahhhh, the benefits of getting older and basically not giving a toss about what someone else declared as your personal must-have.


  1. Unless, like me you have a fondler. Since I stopped him getting to my boobs, he has started lifting up my skirt to get to my tummy! A boiler suit could be the solution ;P

  2. Hahaha, when I read the title I thought it was a giveaway, and having seen the pic, my immediate reaction was “Seriously?!” Haha, the funniest post in quite a while 🙂

  3. Oh my! I am not sure that outfit should leave the factory. You have the body for it, but it isn’t very attractive. Thanks for sharing.

  4. haha! It looks like something Hannibal Lecter might wear. I really do not get the point of either those, or onesies.

  5. A boiler suit? looks more like a wet suit. I can vaguely remember when I might’ve thought that would be cool. How do you go to the loo? Anyway, thanks for making me laugh x

  6. Tanya says

    I couldn’t agree more. I’m also a fan of wearing what fits my shape, not just the latest trend

  7. You made me laugh out loud here (sat in the sofa with a immunisation- feverish baby and two hungry older boys who had to wait longer for dinner due to crying feverish baby;)).
    Have a great evening! xx

  8. Oh no! Boiler suits are for dirtly work. Just like those onesies (which my 5yr old daughter received as a Christmas gift and refuses to wear!) should only be worn by little babies!

  9. They obviously think you are terribly groovy! I would love to order from Matches but shipping prohibitive – money saved I suppose…I did try on a similar one in New York and It was not flattering. Did wonder too what happens when one sits down with a stretchless one-piece. Oh-er missus

  10. Wait…an adult onesie……or…..a new plumbers outfit? Awful…. Kate Moss’ fashion sense has never impressed me anyway. 🙂

  11. Oh my god. When this popped through in my feed I hoped against hope that you were going to have a laugh about it and not be actually recommending it…. LOL!
