i think it being that dark blue, makes it look more like a dress, like if were pastle or like red w/ black lace then iy might seem weird out and about it.

but frankly it looks hot ! and not at all slutty or any thing, i think you should go for it, rock on lady!

I have one that has a cute tiny floral print on it and I do wear it in the summer.  I also have a short cardigan with 3/4 sleeves I put on with it.  Go for it!


Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.
hello color!

Lookin' good! I want those teeth!

I don't have a slipdress, but I have a vintage slip (in hot pink with white lace!) that I wear out with a pj-dress. The slip is a little see-through, and the pj dress is not but it's wayy too short, so they are perfect together! One time, I was in a touristy area, and some people stopped me and asked to take a picture. It's that good! So I think you know what my advice is Wink

Slips are too pretty to only wear around the house or hidden underneath dresses! I wear them out all the time in summer, usually 2 layered so it isn't sheer. With a little cardigan too. People would sometimes make dumb comments like, "aren't you forgetting your dress?" Haha. I think it's still a really cute look though.

I wore mine on halloween (freudian slip) and no my age (high school) knew what it was.  So there was no problem there.
It was when i went to work at the coffee shop and was serving older folks and they knew exactly what it was.  If i hadnt been ready with an explaination of my halloween costume, i dont think it would have gone over very well.
Although, I did make more tips than i ever have that day.

If you don't feel comfy about wearing it as is, you could always layer!
If it were me I would wear some capri-length leggings and a little cardigan or something over it.  That way, if you feel comfortable in it, you can de-layer, or if you don't feel comfortable in it, you can just keep your layers on! Smiley
It looks really cute btw!
I have two that I've been mulling over wearing as well, but after seeing yours, I think I'll dye mine a darker color to make it look a little less lingerie-ish.  Smiley
