Whenever I get an idea — and I get lots of ideas every day — I hear Boris Karloff’s voice saying, “Then he got an idea. An awful idea. The Grinch got a wonderful, awful idea.”
So here’s my latest wonderful, awful idea.
I love this dress and I love the way this model looks wearing it.
But even I accept that you can only push the envelope so far.
I cannot show up for work, or even a work party, wearing a dress undone over shorts and go-go boots.
It’s simply isn’t done.
Or in the words of Sillerton Jackson, “I didn’t think the Mingotts would have tried it on.”
But what if we were to marry this inappropriate robe with another equally inappropriate garment . . .
Marry it to a garment that I didn’t expect to see resurrected in my working years . . .
the sLiP DrEss???
And now I must share my strongly held views about the slip dress.
The slip dress is just everyone being lazy — designers and wearers.
I am totally enamored of this idea. Two wrongs shall make a right!
