First Slip ExperienceMy first ever slip experience was with a pretty pink Marks & Spencer's slip way back in the 1980's. It belonged to my aging aunt who I used to stay with a lot when I was growing up. I was 9 or 10 at the time and used to help her with hanging out the washing sometimes. One particular day I was handed this gorgeous slip to hang out. It was dripping wet as she used to like to drip-dry such garments. I just knew that at some point I just had to try this slip on. A few weeks later I got the chance to sneak into her bedroom where this slip was hanging over the back of her bedroom chair. I took it to the bathroom and tried it on - I've been hooked ever since! My aunt died a couple of years later and | managed to keep that slip and another aqua coloured one just like it. That was the start of my slip collection addiction - and I still have those two original vintage items. So soft, so beautiful to wear, I love them. I love wearing them wet too - I've never forgotten my first touch of a wet nylon slip and recreate it as often as I can. I have dozens of much more modern slips but they just don't feel the same - wet or dry!
