Some of them are cuter than others:

http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/category.do?cid=38953

I have the colorblock one in black and gray, the one in the black print that looks vaguely zebra-esque (both made of rayon which I find nice and slippery and cool on a hot night). I also have a plain black cotton one which is not on the web site.

Certainly they don't compare to some of the exquisite vintage slips I've seen, but they're much cuter option for lounging than sweatpants.

thanks for the tip. I like the black and gray colorblock, you can never have too many black slips and i'm feeling the floral ones, I don't have any floral slips and i'm normally not into floral but for some reason those are catching my eye.

i agree i love vintage slips the most but i like a mix in my slip collection; things in different colors, prints, lengths, and from different eras.

I think slips are very beautiful, and can look quite sexy peeking out from under a dress. I don't think they'll ever disappear completely!

The first slip is gorgeous, Deborah! I'd love to invest in a pretty design like that - my slips are only black or white. Today I bought a Vanity Fair white half slip for $2.99 at Goodwill. The fabric is very soft and there is no visible yellowing, so I suspect it is new. Just a heads up for anyone in need of a slip - thrift stores are full of them; all you need to do is sort through the used ones and find the brand new designs.

I usually wear slips as regular dresses. I love vintage slips and I've found my most beautiful ones from thrift stores. I love to wear them in the spring/fall under a chunky knit sweaters or under shorter dresses with a bit of lace peeking out so I don't look so tarty . I don't think slips will dissapear, they are just no longer seen as pieces that should be hidden.

Also I got this dress from bcbg which looks like a slip.

I just only very recently got into the idea of slips as part of an outfit instead of just being "underwear". I have seen several outfits wherein the lace bottoms are peeking out from under skirts/ dresses, which is so subtly sexy IMO.

The all saints slips are lovely. I have wanted for a while. They do silky ones as well now.
But, they can look a bit tarty on girls with big boobs, I went with my friend to get one and the pink one looked too much with her breasts. She got cream.

You are too cute LOVE IT!

By the way, I collect vintage silk slips (the exceptionally beautiful ones anyway). I like to think I would wear them to bed but I never do.

Shockingly, I don't own any, because I generally like the idea of embracing 'dead' trends, and old-fashioned attention to detail. But I would probably buy slips with only one skirt of mine in mind (at one time), and acquire an unnecessary collection. I just know it, so I don't go there.

Just last week i was looking to buy a satin slip in Wolford - they didn't have any - just the spandex long tank. I need a slip that is slippery for fine sweater dresses
