I’ll be honest: I usually sleep in some combination of old T-shirt, XL sweatpants, and cotton undies (sexy, right?). I’m probably the last person in the world who’s about to drop $500 on a silk nighty and matching robe. But there is something so alluring to me about the fantasy world where this stuff exists. Who wouldn’t want to pair their floor-length “dressing gown” with the most impractical shoes of all time, which would be baby pink feather mules? And who wouldn’t wouldn’t want actual matching pajamas, made in the softest silk, to wrap yourself up in before you get in your 5,000 thread-count sheets?
This alternate universe bedroom (boudoir, if you will) where I only wear silk, satin, lace, and feather boas or something is very far from my reality. But hey! A girl can dream. (And tonight, my dreams are fancy AF.)
