Slip Dress – Too Risky For Us Mortals?!
On Saturday my beautiful fellow bargain hunter friend and I went to Salvation Army for some great finds. Unfortunately I found nothing but my pal found too many gorgeous dresses. One of which was long black tight netted material with a slip. PERFECT for $6!!! It would look great over a bikini on vacation or for a date night over the top of a slip or if you are feeling confident (obviously venturing into Francene world) then you can put it over your black underwear. HOT!
It got me thinking about pieces like this, slip dresses and showing off your bra.
There are some rules us girls need to follow to not go too far and look like Jodie Marsh/Jordan.
– bra under blazer is sexy peeking through.
– bra on its own.. Never good!
– slip dress with minimal accessories. It is better to keep it all simple
– wear nipple pads (yup even this has been added to my wardrobe basics!)
– only display hot underwear – no faded whites!
Kate Moss was the queen of slip.. Recently Rihanna has been trying to steal her crown. There’s just something so sexy and laid back about this dress, the way it resembles a seductive nightie, yet it’s not, the way it feels to the touch, so damn silky and luscious (must be the silk fabric doh.), the way it’s so easy to slip into, hence the name. Doh. I mean… it’s fucking great!
Style wise it goes a mile… as it can be worn in a billion ways, equally effortless and hot. It looks great with high heels, the kind that were hot in the 90s as well. Think strappy sandals, or even lace up stilettos. Personally I don’t like how it looks with pumps, and chunky ugly shoes, nor wedges, buuuut… if you love it, why the hell not.
Then there’s the basic style: flat sandals, or gladiator flat sandals. Don’t like ballet pumps with this, nor espadrilles.
The blogger look. Or today’s sporty glam relaxed style: the slip dress and sneakers. Or birkenstocks. It’s different, but quite cool. Quirky and fun.
One more massive plus the slip dress has is its styles, cuts & designs. Sure, all are basically the same: thin straps, silky or chiffon fabric, cut to the body line, but not fitted, yet while keeping all its traits intact, designers are giving us plenty more. Colors and prints (although… please don’t be rolling your eyes right now, but the black slip dress with the lace trimmings is still the best.). Different lengths, from minis to maxis, all is out there. Cutouts. Fabric insertions, and what not.
I searched high and low for the Zara slip dress which came out in 2014. I FINALLY found a brand new one on eBay and I LOVE it!
You need the confidence to pull off this outfit in fashionable sneakers and a cute bomber jacket but why not! The weather in Houston is about to become unbearable so wouldn’t it be nice to just slip into your outfit !
