 HOW TO WEAR A VINTAGE SLIP

or trying to got a size 32 slip on a 44 body

Oh, dear!

maybe if I try this.......

Houston, we may have a problem

maybe this will work

A cowl neck wrap

Or embrace your inner pirate. Avast me hardies!

I always look for vintage slips when I go thrifting. It's hard to find  slips in the retail shops and I use then in the shows. Last summer I bought a pretty polka dot sheer dress, it was screaming at me "wear a slip, bitch!" After not finding anything in 3 stores except for Spanx like bodyshapers, I was about ready to give up. A couple of weeks later on a trip to Tallahassee I went to Dillard's and finally found a basic slip. Is it just me, or is it really hard to find basic items? A couple of Christmas' ago I had the same problem finding The Doctor a Levi's trucker jacket.

I'm wearing: stripped t-shirt $1 rack. Nice black slacks: bought new 2-years ago at Coldwater Creek $80. Vintage slip as headwrap $2

 HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. When in doubt, wrap it, stick it, tie it, glue it, pin it or balance it on your head!!

    It's hard to find plain slips anymore--and forget finding divided half-slips (these are like bloomers but open at the bottom--cuts down on thigh rub!
