This is one of my go-to outfits, when there's no fancy meeting to dress up for, but it's not Friday yet? It can fly with many different tops, jewelry and shoes; even the tights can go—I prefer them because the skirt is a bit short, but then I do have some of these to play with:
A Slip Shop (Etsy) is pretty cool; the ladies there will make you either a standard- or custom-length half-slip, with a variety of lace trims to choose from. I dithered between them and The Cotton Mill, where they'll make you a cotton half-slip to order (again with lovely lace trim options). A Slip Shop's nylon half-slip was more practical to my needs; it is a regular ol' half-slip, at the end of the day, and can function as such, and add length to skirts which need it.
This could be terrible news for your wallet, but ASOS is having a summer sale:
Naturally I noticed their cool web interface, where you can select your way handily through mammoth amounts of clothing. Mind you, I'm ratcheting down new clothing purchases, but I'm all for losing my ASOS virginity at these prices.
Hmmm...I'm shagged, actually. I'm converting my online add/drop/change program to be entirely online-submissible. It's a fairly interesting process, if only because you have to pretty much replicate what the currently-used PDF form does...without replicating the drawbacks of the form...and this form does everything for everybody.
