Friday Frocks: Chemise-try 101

lingerie clothesline bridal showerI remember slumber parties.  I don’t remember pillow fights in my panties though.  I think that cliché is some sort of sleazy scenario concocted by pervy males, when in reality, most slumber parties I attended involved Cosmo quizzes, Dr. Pepper, and pizza.  I guess nearly nude party games do sound a bit saucier.  At our age, most of the sleepovers we now attend are a bit more exclusive- like party of two and maybe a lucky dog at the foot of the bed.  While we probably should keep playing games of truth or dare until we die, we don’t necessarily need to continue donning oversized t-shirts and Soffe shorts of platonic slumber parties of years past.  One way to ensure the fire doesn’t dwindle after hours is to dress for bed like you’re dressing for your first date.  Not literally, of course, because you wouldn’t necessarily wear something see through to dinner at Le Cirque and a bodycon dress for bed might be too binding- but maybe you’re into that.  Swap your boxers for something silky, skip the pillow fights, and get right to the pillow talk.

Friday Frocks: Don’t Play No Games

workout fashionYou know what can ruin a perfectly good Eggs Benedict?  Watching a girl wearing sweaty yoga pants join the table next to you post [insert latest/trendiest workout] class for mimosas and toast, gluten free, of course.  I understand the stress of squeezing in a workout pre-weekend gluttony.  Getting from point A to point B without upsetting all parties and attempting to look like you didn’t just emerge from Tulum’s sweat lodge.  The struggle is real.  Whether you’re looking to find love on the tennis court or love in the club, these sporty little dresses are perfect for slipping on post calorie torching.

Friday Frocks: Jump At the Chance

jumping jumpsuit whydidTechnically not a frocks… because, well, they’re not dresses, jumpsuits are panted versions of the maxi dress.  A jumpsuit can be both casual and comfortable as well as silky and sleek.  Whether you opt for uptown or down, just fair warning: it’s going to be a struggle in the bathroom.  Allow for extra time and be prepared for angry, full bladdered women to anxiously sigh while repeatedly interrupting your bathroom break with angry knocks as you try to free yourself from straps, belts, and other accoutrements.  That aside, jumpsuits are kind of like wearing very stylish onesie pajamas out in public without attracting public scrutiny, plus you don’t need to bother shaving.  Jump at the chance to wear one this weekend.

Friday Frocks: Flip It & Reverse It

Not only are double duty beauty products helpful for packing, so are dresses that are multifunctional and able to be worn in more than one way. Whether it’s a maxi dress that moonlights as a skirt or a frock that’s altogether reversible, having options that take up half the space are magic in and of themselves.  So, pack light, put your thing down, flip it, and reverse it.

Friday Frocks: Queen of the Night

queen of the nightIt’s ironic that someone who spent the majority of her life obsessed with apparel and who threw her very first temper tantrum at the tender age of two over a pair of shoes would rather spend most of her time as an adult wearing as little as possible without catching a charge for indecent exposure.  But the moment the door clicks closed behind me, all bets are off and so are my clothes.  It should come as no surprise then, that when the summer heat kicks into full swing causing me to question whether or not I’m suffering from early menopausal hotflashes, that I will find any means possible to wear what might equate to a tissue’s amount of fabric as a frock.  I’ve been known to wear a nightie to a cocktail party and I don’t see why I should deprive the streets or the city from the same royal treatment… day or night
