How to Wear a Slip Dress and Sneakers

Published

on

To be honest, it happened on accident. I had decided to give up sweatpants altogether and make use of the rest of my wardrobe. Though I hadn’t visited the slip-dress section in quite a few months, I felt the urge to wear something sensual and sexy, even while working from home. With the temperature rising, I made my decision: a slip dress it was. Every day, my partner and I take a social-distancing walk around the neighborhood, and that’s when I teamed the aforementioned slip dress with sneakers, because slippers aren’t exactly functional for an activity that involves getting from point A to point B (though in my most recent experience, point A is always the bedroom and point B is always the kitchen).

Upon checking myself out in the elevator mirror, I realized I really loved my look. It felt effortless and sporty, but a slip is such a feminine, boudoir-inspired piece. My outfit said, “I can take on the world right now — I can spend time in my home and also get some fresh air outside with just two really simple basics from my closet.” While a lot of people think of their sneakers as the answer to bike shorts and joggers right now and their slips to be reserved for date night only, I’m here to challenge the notion. Ahead, evidence that this combination doesn’t just work but also works well.

FORT WAYNE Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Over 100 local artists are painting the plywood on boarded up businesses downtown. These artists teamed up with Art This Way and the Downtown Improvement District to re-purpose the boards on businesses.

The plywood covering windows broken from last weekend’s protests, are now canvases for artists.

“It felt like a obligation as an artist in our community and to bring awareness for the black community and oppression,” local artist, Theopolis Smith III said.

As a professional artist, he says he jumped at the chance to paint the boards covering the broken windows at Fortezza Coffee.

“The goal is to re-purpose but also once more, what’s going to happen after we paint these beautiful pictures,” Smith III said. “What are we going to do? What is the city going to do? And we have an obligation and a mandate to do such.”

Art This Way manager, Alexandra Hall, says over 100 artists reached out to her and now almost every piece of plywood downtown is painted.

“Obviously the boards can have a negative connotation,” Hall said. “Something negative did happen here, but obviously the business owners are interested in portraying the right message.”

She says there’s already 27 pieces being painted, each with a message. One of which, includes the word ‘peace’ painted in 67 different languages.

“It’s a glimmer of real hope and happiness,” Hall said. “It shows how much our community is aware.”
