Well its looks like I'm kind of stuck on a sleep theme this week; ( or lack there of ) been having a bout of insomnia lately.So today is Wednesday and it's time for some fashion....hmmmm but how to fit the theme in here ....got it!
At My Bridal shower my Mom gave me a Peignoir set. It was gorgeous. It had beautiful delicate lace and was very long. It reminded me of something you'd see in one of those cool 40's films. This picture here looks exactly like the one my Mom gave me. I wore it on my wedding night and maybe a few times after that but then it was put away. You see I'm a man's t-shirt and cotton shorts kind of girl. If I wear jammies they are usually lightweight cotton and roomy!
Remember the Engalls Girls? They wore long gowns and I always wondered why they wore those bonnets to sleep...turns out that people then wore them to keep out lice and to contain very long hair .
This is Audrey Hepburn in a scene from Breakfast at Tiffany's. Her "night gown" is a man's tuxedo shirt.
Sewing pattern for a Peignoir set from the 50's. The pink one looks like something women might have worn out.
Lucy and Ricky wore matching PJ's on their show...I wonder if they did in real life?
Baby dolls were very popular in the 60's
So which one do you like the most? I have to admit that on any giving day I am wearing one of my husband T-shirts...( they are so comfy!) The footsie pajamas are too confining...I can't stand having hot feet when I am sleeping.
Lanz the company that makes this nightgown has been around for 60 years. Their gowns are comfy and great for those cold winter nights.
Do these footsie PJ's make you feel comfy cozy?
How about a bit of silk?
or are you a tshirt and boxers kind of person?
how about just a regular slip nightie?
And for the guys... Do you like the the footsie onesie look?
The classic looking PJ's?
Do you like to match the Mrs.?
or is the Scrooge look more to your liking?
Its is very late and so I am going to try and catch some ZZZZZ's. Have a great Wednesday!
