Probably my favorite part of reading other blogs is the outfits posts and/or vintage finds posts other vintage-inclined ladies around the world share. I'm pretty terrible about doing them myself (I think I've done a grand total of one so far), mostly because I really am pretty awkward in front of the camera and am really not photogenic (it's okay, I'm fine with my real-life self. But the camera doesn't like my face), but I also have little patience for fiddling with the self-timer.
Anyway, I finally did some today, because I recently added a 40's robe to my collection, and figured I may as well share that and my others as part of the series! I apologize for the rather unimaginative posing, this would be my camera awkwardness at work.
I'm also wearing Daniel Greens in all of these - I've got three pairs! They really are so comfy, I wish Daniel Green would re-issue their designs from the 20s-40s because they perfectly wed prettiness with comfort. The heels aren't bad at all - on the two dark blue pairs they're only 1.5 inches, and the light blue ones, which I think are late 40s or early 50s, are pretty tall, but are still fine!
|The robe that goes with the above set. I just love all the buttons down the waist and the delicate creamy lace! Le sigh. I rarely wear this because I'm so afraid I might damage it.|
|I got this in a tiny town in Massachusetts. Again, I was a sucker for the lace and peachy pink color!|
Do you all have any favorite boudoir or sleepwear finds? I'd love to see them - link them in the comments if you've got some to share!
And if you do have some lovely vintage nightwear, do you ever wear it/how often do you wear it?
I find that I hardly wear mine, at least when I'm at home or at school. At home my parents and brother would tease me, and at school in dorms/group housing it would just be awkward and probably give people the wrong impression. The only time I've ever reguarly slipped into my vintage loungewear is when I was living on my own in Boston, where except for a never-present roommate, I could just do my own thing without worrying about people judging my desire to swoosh around!
Happy zzz's to all of you,
