I have absolutely no excuse for my slacker ways. Where have I been for a week? I don't know. Not blogging, unfortunately. I have so much to post, I need to get on the ball.
I actually do have one excuse, my friend Andrea was in town from MI. Also I'm job searching, which is a motivation sucker.
Enough of that. Do you remember my day of glory at Goodwill As-Is? This Vintage 1960's French Maid Lingerie Company Slip is one of my finds.
I didn't know much about the slip when I dug it up. Here's what I did know:
1. It was Old-ish, potentially vintage (based on the tag)
2. It was in amazing condition
3. There was no way in hell it would fit me
Normally, I don't buy clothing that doesn't fit, but for $1...! The design is so intricate, feminine, pretty, soft, etc. Something this special just cannot be passed up! I wish I could wear it, but that would require self starvation and a breast reduction. Instead I will probably bring it to one of my local vintage shops.
Googling French Maid Lingerie Company is a little frustrating. Try it. You will find a lot of French Maid Lingerie Costumes that are, um...not modest.
Most of the relevant items I could find were on Ebay, Etsy or Classy Option. I don't know much about Classy Option. I found them while researching. They actually have a category just for the French Maid Lingerie brand.
For the record, if the slip did fit I would NOT have modeled it for this blog. Ha!
I hope you're having a great week so far!
