One of my favorite luxuries is vintage sleepwear! Nothing can compare to the sheer glamour and luxury of those sweet silk and lace confections. I thought I'd share some of the creme de la creme of my modest collection. All of these pieces are 1940s to early 1950s, and all were thrifted for $3 to $10!!
~ 1950s nightie, 1940s bedjacket, 1920s silk roses:
~ 1940s/1950s "Tula" seersucker dressing gown, 1940s satin dressing gown:
I feel like Jean Harlow in the satin number, it's such a dreamboat. Was thrifted for ten clams... among my greatest vintage victories!
~1940s "Tutundgy Original" dressing gown:
....this pretty piece was clearly well-loved, and has quite a few stains and pinholes towards the hem. I think I'll take it up a few inches to eliminate those, and perhaps add some strategic snaps and sport it as a day dress this summer.
~ Some graceful midcentury nightgowns:
~ 1940s bedjacket:
~ 1940s mens' "Tootal" rayon robe:
....well now, what's happened to all the glamour?! Honestly, on many nights I just wrap up in this. A little more practical than floor-length satin, I daresay!
Oh, and of course, no vintage lady's bedroom is complete without a li'l boudoir doll...
