30s lace... Go bare if you dare

 Lace dresses from the 20's and 30's were originally intended to be worn with a slip, usually the same colour, creating a textured but still 'floaty' silhouette.  It is rare to get a gown with the original slip.  I often team them with contrasting coloured chemise, making the dress take on a totally different appearance with each wear.  It is also fun to play around with underwear.  A well cut pair of pants creates a daring, but still 'covered up' look.
