They come and go, the slip dresses, the barely there nothings suspended on thin spaghetti straps... And I just adore them, those glorious dainty beauties! I melt every time we cross our paths and I simply want them all, almost all...
In a midst of fading autumn, as the spring collections made their first appearance, I fell in love with the Max Mara Ebbri, in silvery grey - after all who would not? It was irresistibly gorgeous in its timeless chic simplicity... The blue Maiyet was equally wonderful, but its four-figure price tag made my life feel totally unfair. So it was TheOutnet and one of their fantastic 80% off designer sales, the only kind of shopping I actually enjoy.
Another great thing about a good slip? It keeps you in shape! No more excuses about short days, cold mornings and no motivation to exercise - those dresses require toned arms and elegant slim shoulders. Might sound like a challenge, but just imagine how wonderful you would feel and look at the end.
