Where are the “Donna Reed Full Slips?

The Donna Reed Show

Do you – any of you – remember The Donna Reed Show?  Yeah, 60’s – very lovely woman with the “perfect house, perfect wardrobe, perfect children”?    Well, I’m sure that the series never did show Donna Reed in her full slip underneath those very crisply ironed dresses of hers, nevertheless, trust me, she did have a perfect, very white, silk slip underneath her perfectly pressed clothes.

But try to FIND one of those full slips ANYWHERE,  in America, they don’t exist.  Anymore.  In France, yes, they do, but it would take a bank loan to purchase one.    In America, EVERYTHING that goes underneath your clothing is SPANX.  And spanx, is not bad, if you don’t care to be squished to death underneath your clothing.   When I searched last August, I found that there were spanx coverings and spanx “slips” and spanx tops and spank bottoms, but no regular as I like to call them – “Donna Reed type whole slips!”  ANYWHERE.  They just did not exist in the U.S. of A.

SO, —-Today, I went to the  outdoor market sole-ly for fresh tomatoes.

I came home with a real – bona-fide – white – lacey – silk slip – for under 20 euros!!!!

Imagine my happiness today, when going to the market for only TOMATOES and a few fresh veggies that I stumbled upon a “lingerie booth” – complete with a “cabana type closet” where I could try on my “underlings” – the passer-bys just inches away.  It was fantastic.

"Cabana" to try undergarments  - very fun

So!  After searching markets everywhere in the United States, and boutiques that HAD “whole slips” but were so incredibly expensive I would have had to sell my house – I found – today – in CASSIS – at the market that I love the most, the most beautiful, the most sensuous “Donna Reed Whole Slip” that I’ve been wanting for a very long time.

Cassis Markets – ROCK
