Superfantastic reader Erin asked:
Slips: Do you wear them? How long are your slips? Because you’re a year-round dress- and skirt-wearing woman in a cold climate, I assume that you’re a slip fan. Slips keep my skirts and tights from ending up in a horrible tussle on my thighs (no one wants to see that). I think, however, that there may be some ladies who think slips are old fashioned, fussy, and unnecessary.
Well, friends, it’s confession time: I am utter crap at slip implementation. I own several full slips, but they only get worn when I have about a billion heavy layers over them because they’ve got lots of gorgeous lacy embellishment … which means they generally show through my shirts. Also since I am generally on a mission to show off my waist, a traditional full slip only hinders: Unless worn with a dress (and most of my dresses are either lined or slippery), it pooches out at the waistband.
