In Dita Von Teese's profile in the Times' "What I Wore" feature, she details the outfit she wore while walking through the English countryside during a friend's weekend-long birthday celebration.
I wore a Louis Vuitton tartan waistcoat and paired it with a heavyweight black wool slim skirt, a '40s trilby hat and my button-up boots with flat heels. When we got back to the house, our boots were covered in mud. I changed into black thigh-high leather Moschino boots — perfect for our afternoon of ferret racing. Yes, I said ferret racing. I had never seen anything like that. It was kind of hysterical.
Because what else would you expect from a woman who wouldn't dare leave the house without a set of matching underwear? She adds that while doing some "light housekeeping" in her Paris apartment a few days later, she wore a vintage slip paired with a Wheels & Dollbaby cardigan. She stayed in said slip until she headed out to do Pilates in—omg—plain black leggings.
