I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I love vintage slips. Not only are they a glamorous throwback to a bygone era, they’re the perfect introduction to a world of vintage lingerie..inexpensive, widely available, and flattering on almost everyone.
As a brief aside, there’s one key difference between vintage lingerie and retro lingerie. Vintage lingerie was made in the past. Retro lingerie just looks like it was made in the past–it’s actually constructed in the present-day.
E-bay is always my first choice for vintage slips, with Vanity Fair and Van Raalte being my preferred brands. I’ve found some great deals for under $10 so even the most budget-conscious diva can indulge. Etsy is another great choice, though their prices tend to start a bit higher…around the $20 mark.
What do you think of my slip? I wore one of these on a recent date with The Boyfriend and he loved it even more than my overtly sexy lingerie. Funny how that works, yeah?
In other news, the “L” key on my laptop keeps sticking. I can’t begin to tell you how inconvenient that is when you’re writing a lingerie blog. There’s an “L” everywhere! Good night, lovelies.
