I really loathe summer...well, the heat, more than the actual season. I suppose it's not its fault, exactly. One of the best ways to survive the heat is to don cute, flirty summer dresses so that you can remain absolutely gorgeous while your make up melts and you get oddly shaped sunburns (oh yes, that is a personal reference).
I've been madly in love with the idea of slips/nightgowns as outerwear since I was a youngin' watching Courtney Love, L7, and Babes in Toyland videos on VHS tapes. I began to think that this would be a PERFECT inspiration to start this summer's fashion adventures...but where can you find such fabulous, vintage slip-age for plus size dames?
Cue the queen of adorable vintage nightwear: Shrinkle! Her etsy shop is full of her own handmade collection (which, sadly, seems to be only size Small items) and a cornucopia of adorable vintage pieces! She has many items up that would work for sizes 1X-4X, just look for a free flowin' silhouettes and items marked Bust 44" and up or XL and up. Here are a few of my favorite plus size choice from her shop!
Free Size $42
Mix these with cardigans, pastel fishnets from We Love Colors, combat boots, and hair bows to bring out your inner riot grrl. Shrinkle ALSO has her own eyeshadow line, Sugarpill. I haven't tried it yet, but it's VERY cute, yes??
Do you have a favorite place to buy vintage dress/slips? Leave a comment with info...I'd LOVE to find even more places!
