Slip into Slip Dresses for 2019
I have had my eye on the satin slip dresses for a while, and I finally snagged two of them from one of my favorite online stores, lulus.com.
Comfy, stylish, and classy are the three words I would use to describe the satin slip dress, and out of all three of the descriptions, comfy is my favorite.
When shopping for a dress I usually go for a tight-fitted, fit and flare, or a bandage look which always works but sometimes those styles can be uncomfortable. While wearing both of these slip dresses, I did not have to worry about sucking my tummy in after dinner. I know there are some ladies out there who can relate.
Deciding to begin my search on google, I typed "satin slip dress" in the search engine, and Lulus was the first store to pop up with their "Wild Child Blush Pink Leopard Pink Midi Dress." As pink is my favorite color, the dress was in my shopping cart within thirty seconds. Immediately placing my order, I knew this was going to be a great addition to my summer 2019 wardrobe.
This dress ended up being perfect for a dinner date and scored a compliment from the waitress.
I accessorized the dress with my favorite turquoise blue necklace from Nordstrom and a pair of black heels from BCBGMaxazria.
Falling completely in love with that pink and leopard beauty, I decided to order another slip dress after receiving an email that Lulus had free shipping, and anytime Lulus has free shipping, I take full advantage of it. Deciding to click on the sales tab, I came across the "Caulmond Royal Blue Satin Midi Slip Dress," which was discounted for $14.
It was a chilly that night so I wore a lightweight faux leather jacket which complimented the dress very well.
I wore this dress to MGM Casino Lounge in Maryland for a birthday dinner.
The pumps are by Jessica Simpson, and my purse is by Kate Spade.
The blue dress is still available to purchase and is a must-have for any occasion. Also, the satin slip dress looks good on many different body types, which is excellent because fashion and inclusivity is a great combination.
After doing a bit of research, I learned that the slip dress originated in France during the 20th century. This was known as an underwear-as-outerwear trend and as history is known to repeat itself, fashion does that also. Some trends never go away and some leave and come back. I am glad to wear a style of dress that was worn by Queen Marie Antoinette and other stylish ladies during the 1700's.
