Sienna Miller, Alexa Chung and Karlie Kloss in 2016.

The 90's slip dress is back with a vengeance, from the top runway shows, down to the shopping mall shops! you'll find it everywhere nd perhaps it's the second time round, like me! I love it, I wore it a lot in the nineties, not with Doc Martens, I wasn't that cool, but with Converse sneakers and a black velvet choker!! Over the years I've collected a fair share of slip dresses, some in Ibiza, ( wore them to the beach!) , in Buenos Aires, (one of them inspired my wedding dress) and any vintage store that carries actual slips. Used as undergarments before my time, they're normally found in vintage stores and much sought after, as much to sleep in or to lounge around, as well as to wear out. 

Vintage images...

From Princess Diana, Drew Barrymore, Courtney Love, Naomi Campbell to the No. 1 Slip dress queen, Kate Moss, it was de riguer in the nineties!

So vintage...

The late John Casablancas, ELITE  Model agency founder and I, in New York, sometime in the nineties! The slip dress was literally bought in the sleepwear section from Calvin Klein, and I wore ti with some Bruno Magli gold T-bar strappy sandals, and I thought I looked a million dollars!

Two of a few of my vintage slip dresses.

I'm going to wear this trend differently this time around, probably with a T-shirt under, perhaps a blazer over, maybe with high strappy heel, if it's knee length. If longer, definitively flats. And if it get chilly, it looks so god paired with a man sized sweater.

What to Wear

Wish a great weekend,
