When was the last time you looked at your underwear? I mean really looked at it? Is it still pretty? Or has it fallen into “serviceable” condition? Or, the worst, the undies that are relegated to princess time so that you won’t worry about damage?
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that one way to seem more glamorous is to only wear beautiful clothes–or, more accurately–that make you feel beautiful. But as our mid-century charm mentor, John Robert Powers reminds us,
To be among the best-dressed, you must also be among the best “underdressed.”
So, as spring cleaning time approaches, I encourage you to include your lingerie drawer on your checklist. Get rid of any undergarments that don’t make you feel fabulous anymore. Your mother told you to always wear clean underwear in case you were in an accident and she is right. But, you deserve better than clean undies that are holey and stretched out. Make every day a “special occasion” and wear your pretty niceties. Just for you!
