Jonesing for a Jumpsuit on a Budget

Until I can figure out how to get in on the boatloads of money being made in the international drug trade, I will never be able to afford anything remotely on par with these smokin'-hot jumpsuits by Alexander McQueen, Chloe, and Marc Jacobs. Luckily my trusty standby, Urban Outfitters, has released a Silence and Noise version that seems just fabulous enough for an almost-but-not-quite-yet-college-English-professor like myself...



MCQ Wool Tuxedo Jumpsuit, $670, Net-a-porter.




Marc Jacobs Velvet Jumpsuit, $2,050, Net-a-porter.




Chloe double-breasted jumpsuit, $1,650, Net-a-porter.


My Fix: Silence and Noise Button-up Jumpsuit, $78, Urban Outfitters.

Hey! The Urban Outfitters one looks super cool!! I really like it, even more than the others, might be the straps I think...
