Always Wear a Slip

Filed under: — Kate @ 3:54 pm EST

Today I decided to go for the tall boots + skirt look. Everything was going fine until I started walking to work.

The front of my skirt kept sticking to my tights, and quickly riding its way up my thighs. I had to yank it back down after every four or five steps I took. I’m sure I looked like a total idiot.

I thought maybe it was just the wind doing this to me, but alas, the little bitch continued to misbehave even after I got to the office. Really, it was a bit ridiculous. I ended up having to take off the tights. Much better.

The moral of this story? Girls, remember what your mothers told you: always wear a slip.

Or at least make sure you can walk down the street without giving everyone a free show.

    I kept a can of Static Guard at my desk a work when I wore dress pants… for the same reason. Now I just wear khakis so it’s no problem. But when the weekend comes and I break out my skirts… then I hear ya, sister!

    I just wanted to nominate more pictures such as these on the blog.

    Do I have a second?

    Static guard wouldn’t have helped. They were sticking together like those felt things you played with as a kid.

    And Holz, if you like this one, you should see the new boots I just bought!

    I’ll give Holz the support he needs, but only because I feel bad for the dirty old man. ;)

    I cant say I ever really had a problem with the static thing. of course I am not quite fashionable to wear such clothing that it would be a problem..

    What’s the big deal, anyway?

    Either a boot fetish or a leg fetish or specifically your legs in leather boots.

    Pick the one that’s least icky and run with it.

    Yeah, I was going to say, it can’t be the three inches of leg I’m showing, so it must be a shoe fetish.

    What can I say, I like tall boots.
