Here's something the world forgot about...

The slip! It seems ladies today have forgotten how great a good slip can be (I've got a bunch). They truly do make dresses lay better and keep your outside layer from sticking to you in the hot sticky weather of a city in the summer. I highly recommend owning one, or seven. Not only are they practical but they make you feel like a real wo-man and they show your guy that you're not all about the show, you've got the goods to back it up. 

A great under-layer can perfect an outfit while never being seen.  The trick is - almost nobody sells slips these days. That is except those vintage vendors we love so much. Modern satiny unmentionables can run you upwards of $300 - like this oh so lovely Stella McCartney chemise - while you can grab her vintage counterpart for under $20.  So do yourself a favor and get out there in the vintage market and invest in a slim fitting slip. It'll change the way you think about your dresses. 

*side note - not going for full matching here, just providing some silky and inexpensive alternatives to the modern day pocketbook killer.

I wear my black slip all. the. time. 
I don't think I need to explain how fun it will feel to wear this under something demure. 
This is just lovely. And it is my favorite color. 
Now go be a real wo-man and buy yourself a slip.
