Underwear as Outerwear

For those of you utilise your weekends to wear a fabulous mix of your favourite clothes.. 
OR
Those of you who are lucky enough to do this everyday of the week.. Here's some weekend inspiration to roll over into Monday and beyond! 

At Tallulah we have the most dreamy slips of every nature. Whether it be short, long, a foundation piece or something to be chased around the boudoir in, we have the most luxurious. 

I admit.. Some of them are for bedroom purposes only. A slip made entirely of vintage lace, a bit of ribbon and not much else wouldn't go much further than the bedroom door. 

However.. 
Some of our slips are so beautiful that we ask the question, why wouldn't you wear them as outerwear? 
The reaction is usually, "Nooooooo, REALLY?" and the answer is always, "Definitely, Yes!" 


Here's how you wear your slip as outerwear AND take it from day to night. Don't say I'm not good to you.

The day time look - Shell Belle Couture brought back a 1920's pattern to produce this divine Gatsby slip. I would pair it with Dr Martens and some round lensed sunglasses, adding a touch of rock and roll. Alternatively some pretty sandals would be a great addition if it's super hot and your feeling girly.

Amour by Simone Perele is the perfect underwear to disappear under this gorgeous slip. The beautiful detailing doesn't disturb the neckline of the Gatsby, creating a gorgeous shape. 

It's always nice to be able to wear pretty underwear even when it has a purpose to serve as a foundation piece. 
The lace overlay is so soft that lumps and bumps under delicate fabrics is a thing of the past.

If your feeling modest or just feeling the cold your favourite foundation slip can disappear underneath the Gatsby. Next week I'll be introducing Tallulah's dreamy versions of a foundation slip - get excited!

The night time look - It's easy isn't it.. I would just kick of my Dr Marten's and slip into some of Emmy's Shoes. Let the gorgeous champagne, gold lace and glistening embellishments from you Sandys' do their work in turning you into a picture of elegance for your night time activities. 
With your Simone Perele Amour set still working it's magic there really is no need to do anything else! 

If you were having a chilly day time and decided to wear a foundation slip, maybe whip it off or exchange it for a shorter length. The sheer element of the gold lace makes the look a little more sexy.




I hope this inspires you to extend your mind to your slips when your asking yourself, 'What should I wear today..'
Enjoy the weekend sunshine, preferably with a gin & tonic!
