In my early 20s, my friend Kristen served as an initial practice client. Since she was operating on a law student’s budget, I had to be creative about where to find fabulous pieces; Specifically, which department could offer the most for the least.
I had seen women wearing lingerie the same way you would wear anything else- with jeans and heels, under a blazer or sweater. When I price compared ($75-100 for a camisole versus the $150-200 for a standard blouse), the difference was compelling. Additionally, I loved the simple femininity of the pieces, the absence of [too many] details that are often the mark of modern designer clothing.
Now, to be clear, I’m not suggesting you sport a teddy with your new flats. Lingerie as clothing must be modest, full coverage and elegant. And when it is, the look is unbeatable and the price is right.
