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: Flirty Frocks

By |February 10th, 2012|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|


The flirtiest frock a girl can own is the type that isn’t meant for the public to see.  As a matter of fact, it doesn’t matter if anyone ever sees it as long as she feels good when she’s wearing it.  It’s the prettiest, dantiest, most feminine frock in her closet and whether she does her dishes in it or finds herself showing it off, she’ll feel like the most beautiful woman alive.
