In this style-off, we both picked slips of our choice to make into an everyday outfit.

I think I am a slip dress hoarder…. Really. There’s nothing better than getting home after a long day, throwing on a slinky nightgown, and pretending I’m one of the characters in Gossip Girl (dibs on Blair).
Maybe that’s why I have, like, 20 of these bad boys. Or maybe I just have a hoarding problem. But, hey: what better way to spice up your slip life than to wear them in a style-off?
Theresa’s 90s inspired outfit was perfect for a day-to-night look, and paid homage to the start of the innerwear as outerwear trend (hello, Kate Moss). She paired her slip with a Free People sweater and a full Topshop leather circle skirt. Theresa also wore a pair of vintage Stuart Weitzman’s I found at a thrift shop last year.
I decided to go with a more relaxed look that I could see myself wearing to class. I tucked my slip into my UO highwaisted shorts and found a lightweight plaid buttondown to wear over top. I paired this with my favorite set of weird loafer bootie shoes that I bought my older sister for Christmas but kept for myself. Sorry, Cara…..
After wearing this outfit, I’m planning on going home and hopping straight into bed. Dorota, where’s my champagne??!
