Fashion, Personal Outfit

I’m obsessed with the silk slip trend, but am having a hard time warming up to the whole wearing PJ’s in public fad. I don’t know what it is, but maybe something about the slip dress is a little too reminiscent of lingerie for me. Especially when the length is so short that it’s impossible to raise your arms above shoulder height without flashing the entire city.

Aimee Song recently posted on her blog about her top 10 silk dress slips and I became inspired by the last picture in the post. It featured a midi length slip dress with a comfy knit layered overtop it. Talk about epitomizing the day-to-night look. I decided to test out this look on one of Montreal’s brisker, windier days, and the results were nothing short of satisfaction. Not only did my dress never blow up above my face thanks to the heavy knit, but I could stay perfectly warm and feel fierce WHILE being comfortable at the same time. Fashion does not have to sacrifice coziness. As Anthony Vaccarello said about his debut show for Saint Laurent (which I thought was wonderful – filling Hedi Slimane’s shoes is no easy feat), luxury is more about the feel and make of the clothing as opposed to how it appears or what the item of clothing actually is. A luxury item can be something that appears so casual, but its make is perfect and the wearer feels confident. This slip dress is actually hand made by my favourite designer (my mother), and this structured knit made it appropriate for everyday. Will definitely be trying out this look more before the cold snaps and I wear the same jeans and knit everyday…
