eVintage Blog Tag - Slip of a Thing

This week Ang at the eVintage, Vintage or Bust! blog is talking about vintage slips.

The vintage slip. A demure, innocent and simple concoction of fabric and lace….from vintage nylon to sleek, curve hugging vintage rayon to rustling, party ready vintage taffeta. A garment once not considered an option for women wearing a dress or skirt that has become a garment that is actually an option to be WORN as a dress or skirt. Vintage lingerie lovers…..lets talk slips!

1) Show us your favorite vintage slip in your inventory (if you don’t have one, show us one another eVintage member has!)

I no longer sell slips (though I have some I need to lot up and sell soon!). I found this gorgeous cherry red, chiffon trimmed, vintage 50's Van Raalte slip at Senorita Hollywood Vintage.

2) Lace trim or chiffon trim? Whats your favorite?

I'm quite partial to chiffon. It's so etheral and sweet.

3)Colors or neutrals, whats your preference?

You can't go wrong with black, but when it comes to pretty vintage slips I love finding pinks and other bright colors.

4)Favorite label in vintage lingerie? (Vintage Vanity Fair, Vassarette, Movie Star, Barbizon….)

Vanity Fair and Van Raalte never disappoint!

5)Full slip or half?

Full are always prettier.

6)Slips worn as dresses in public…..yea or nay?

Heck yeah! I'm all for wearing what ever makes you happy!

Now hop on over to see Holly at Confessions of a Fashion Diva!
