This amazing slip (or dress?) is something I have seen only once. It is of all-over lace, with a red nylon lining, side zip and a side slit. It has construction features of a slinky dress but in all other ways is made like other lingerie slips of that era.
Imagine wearing this under your party frock or, if you are more daring, alone. Perhaps you won’t want to wear it until after the party . . . .
In any case, it’s a true vintage knock-out item with that great Cat-on-a-Hot-Tin-Roof feeling. Would be a nice little anniversary or Valentine’s Day surprise. When I found it I certainly couldn’t resist.
It was a bit too small for me and I no longer have it (sob). My only regret now is that I can’t photograph it on Stella, who it would fit to a “T”. Eat YOUR heart out, Elizabeth Taylor . ..
