an ecclectic method of fashion

"I dared to wear a vintage satin slip from the '50s as a dress. It was a thicker satin than most of the dresses out there today. It was really cute paired with a shrug and pearls for that special evening out!"

I got this little quote from a list of tips on a couple years ago. (You can still find that list on the site) I thought that was such a great idea. It's only by coincidence that this lovely lady is wearing an outfit similar to the one described. Her dress is in fact, a vintage slip (with thicker satin) that she found at Decades.
If you like this look, Decades has a beautiful collection of vintage slips, (on State Street, just south of 600 south) and the prices of the slips are lower than other vintage clothing.
And let's just face it, feather accessories are just so swank.
