Do you guys ever see girls wearing them as casual summer dresses? Or do you wear them yourselves? I've seen a bunch on Etsy. I bought one a little while ago, which i love. But i've only worn it around the house, because i'm worried it looks like lingerie. (which is stupid for me to care, i know, but whatever)

What do you guys think about wearing them?

Mine looks like this:

well, it DOES sort of look like a nightie - i'll give you that  Grin

but if i saw you wearing that in public, i wouldn't bat an eye.  guess it depends on your comfort level in it Smiley

i care about you a homemade oven mitt's worth.

Wear it! It looks lovely on you. If you feel too nakey in it, just pair it with a girlie cardigan, or even a pair of tights or a top underneath. I get tons of wardrobe inspiration from the wardrobe_remix flickr group (check my if you need the link) and they would applaud this for sure!

I too love the look and it looks great on you.  Smiley

I have been known to wear a vintage slip as a dress usually when I go out to a club. But if you are uncomfortable (which btw you shouldn't be since you do look fabulous) you should not wear it out. It's one of those looks that when you wear it you have to own it. Makes all the difference in the world.

I love the teeth!!! And I have one, I don't wear it alone out of the house, but I will wear it out over a pair of jeans.

Love it!! It looks amazing on you and I for sure think you should wear it out. It would look great with a cardigan too. And awesome high heels and maybe a long string of pearls.

I've worn mine as a shirt It's cream colored so I have to wear stuff under it, or a cardigan over it... but I think yours looks great without anything... I've even worn shorter nighties alone... in my punk rock days...

gardenpicnic - if I looked that good in a slip that I'd never take it off! I think you should definitely wear it as a dress Smiley Sometimes you can tell that they're lingerie but I don't think it really matters if you look good and can pull it off.

Thanks so much for the comments, guys!

That's not me though, that's the girl i bought it from on etsy (miscusi.etsy.com), but yeah, she does look lovely in it. Smiley

I really liked the idea of  wearing it with a girly cardigan, very smart Smiley
And now i can't wait till it's warmer so i can wear it out!

And superbelles- that nightie looks gorgeous on you with those combat boots!

i can't bring myself to wear them out of the house either. they're great layered though, over a tank or tee, over jeans or another skirt, etc. pretty.
