Vintage Sips - inspiration for Valentines & Spring 2012
I collect vintage slips like these and have been wearing them in the warmer months as nightgowns. Since the weather has been so cold, I've found myself drawn to them and am wondering how I could fit them into my daytime wardrobe.
The challenge is they tend to be a bit long for our modern styles, and too much slip showing at the bottom of your dress/skirt looks odd.
They look too much like a slip to be worn as a dress, so I'm a bit stuck on how to style these without have to get them hemmed. ANY IDEAS???
More popular in past decades, the slip was functional as it kept your look modest - but it was also an important undergarment to keep bumps smooth and your dresses cleaner.
For this Valentines day - why not slip on a slinky slip (sounds like a catch phrase) and give your boudoir routine a theme? You can usually pick up lacy full and fitted styles fro around $8. A total bargain.......Here are some more inspirational pieces:
See how long they run? I would love to hear any styling ideas....
