Pardon Me, But Your Slip Is Showing?

You know… when one morning you decide to wear another skirt underneath your really itchy skirt rather than a slip because it’s longer than your slip - thereby offering more of a protective barrier between the itchy skirt and your legs… and when later in the day this "substitute slip" (which happens to have a very wild and colorful pattern) decides to come unbuttoned and hang down below your nice, beige, conservative, itchy skirt in the back by oh, say four or five inches… it’s nice to know that someone will tell someone else to inform you that it shows.

I don't expect anyone to follow, or understand any of this.

Honestly sis, when's the last time you WORE a skirt.... I thought so. It makes no sense cuz you don't REMEMBER it! (oh and they make those screw on wine caps so you don't get THIS wasted!)

I'm really not sure how well I want to understand this one ;o) but I'm thinking what's the bet we'll see this trendy new style at the fashion shows this year?

This would be one of the reasons that I don't wear skirts (very often), actually...!

This is pretty scary: I think I understand completely.

Note to self: Never buy an unlined skirt.

I TOTALLY GET THIS POST! I once had a beautiful slip which lost its elasticity in the waistband in church no less. When I stood up, it ended up in a pool around my ankles. Oh ya, thats a fond memory!

I do follow and I do understand and would like to say that I have been there and done that but I haven't. But I have had to be the one to tell the embarassing news to someone about their "wardrobe malfunction". ec

It's like having a booger and no one tells you. I always tell the person. I told someone one time that he had a booger and I had just met him. He appreciated it, and remembers it til this day... fondly of course.

I am with Jamie on this one. I cemented a friendship here at work last week when she kindly told me I had a soldier straying from the nose. Now I KNOW she's a dear friend for life.

Better the skirt thing happen to the underskirt... than the only skirt. that happened a few times this past summer with a skirt I bought that was just too big. I'd stand up and feel a breeze... notice my skirt is practically lying on the chair I was sitting on. N-i-c-e!

Once, while my date, her sisters and I were going up a flight of stairs to a fancy, dress-up gig, my date's slip came apart and started sliding down her legs. She nearly fell over cuz of it. Not a date-friendly scene.

She eventurally became My First Wife anyway and we still talk about that.

Hmmm. Blogging material?

The other day I was in Victoria's Secret smelling the pretty lotions and apparently got one, a yellow one, too close to my nose. It was only an hour or so later when I happened to walk by a mirror and noticed a yellow blob on my nose that looked just like a booger. It was a blob of lotion, I swear, but I was so embarassed that I had been walking around like that for an hour!

I always tell ppl about their unknown problems. Because I know I would want them to tell me, before I spend the whole day walking around the mall with my fly open and my shirt tail hanging out. Not,,,like that has ever happened to me :-X
