The other fabulous thing? It's not too hard to find, and I've found it to be relatively inexpensive (depending on the piece). I have a growing collection of 1930s and 40s nightgowns, and there's only one that I've paid over $20 for. The one I'm wearing here today I think I found in a flea market. With a cleaning and a small mend, it was ready to go!
It's made of silk charmeuse, and if you've ever worn that fabric you know that all others feel like sandpaper in comparison. It's the softiest, drapiest, loveliest fabric ever. Super comfortable and elegant to wear. It does wrinkle if you look at it wrong, but the way it feels makes it worth it!
I also love 1930s gowns because they're usually cut on the bias. They cling without being tight and have some give for when I'm moving around. This one has a cute little peter pan collar and buttons down the front. The morning I took these photos I had just showered, started a new skin care regimen and left off the makeup, and pin curled my hair. I settled in for a day of relaxing and blog work at home, and it felt especially lovely to wear this gown while I did it!
I'll be sharing more of my loungewear in this "Lovely Lounging" series in the future!
Do you have any vintage loungewear you especially love? (Feel free to leave a link if you've posted it!) What is it about vintage pieces that melts your heart?
