Stockings and Garters and Slips, Oh, My!
As I was getting dressed for work this morning I was thinking about a conversation I had with my friend Silke about slips, and how no one wears them anymore. I read in a fashion magazine the other day that slips are outdated, out of style, and unnecessary. Huh. I never knew this and I beg to differ. Not only does a slip fulfill it's original purpose of keeping folks from seeing through your dress, it's also sexy and girly and makes me feel like Maggie the Cat.
And what about stockings? Doesn't anyone don their legs anymore? I live in the tropics where it's too hot to wear clothes most of the time, so I'm assuming that's why even businesswomen have bare legs, but is that true? Do you Northern gals go about your day sans hosiery? I'm kinda sad about this because I love the look of garters & stockings but other than playing "dress up" occasionally I never wear them!
So, tell me, dear readers, is it me and my casual location? Or is this lack of undergarments widespread? My Inner Pin-up would really like to know.
