This is what I wore this Sunday.
But what I would really like to talk about is what I wore underneath it. Okay, I wouldn’t really like to talk about that, but I do think that as a favor to the world I must call your attention to the marvels of the full slip.
Far too often women play with the extremes of either wearing little to nothing under their skirts (the horror!) or else stuffing themselves into
sausage casings Spanx. Both choices are rather self-defeating. There is not much point to going out of your way to wear a skirt or dress if you are not going to bother to actually make it look good. And if you are wearing Spanx then you may think that you are feeling all ladylike–and you probably are–but what you are not feeling is truly lovely.
If you think that wearing dresses is a particularly good idea, then you really must appreciate the remarkable virtues of the full slip. They can be quite inexpensive (I got my most recent ones from Ross for $5-$10) and they are worth every penny.
