giving them the slip


Some guy was screaming something in a bullhorn on Oxford Street, and these girls were trying to figure out what he was screaming. I like the eyelet lace slip like skirt.

When I saw this girl wearing a whole slip, I didn't feel as odd wearing a slip as a skirt (with a pink top). Actually: no one noticed in the least. At what point did wearing underwear as outerwear become normal? Or is it just, this is England and everyone assumes you're just eccentric?

I must admit that I'm timid when it comes to this. It must be a result of being a teacher. Do you ever go on Maison des Reveries (blog)? SHe has this amazing outfit with her bra showing--but somehow it's done so classy. Wow. Guts.

Oh, I'm not saying this particular look is good. I don't know her and most likely she won't see this so I can say it: this is not flattering to her shape. Even with the blurry shot, from a distance, I could see it. (In fact a lot of the shots I took yesterday weren't necessarily great looks, just fun shots).

But what I love about the underwear thing - which I'm going to go into in a post soon - is it's a clever use of what we've got (I never wore my half slip, for example - we don't really wear slips, do we? - just found it in a drawer, brand new).

I'll look for Maison des Reveries, thanks - it sounds familiar.

How's my home town, the Big Apple, holding up? : )
