Lovely all around

Tonight as I was getting ready for bed, I looked down at my oversized sweatshirt and sweatpants. Warm? Sure. Cute? Not so much. I wouldn't even answer the door to a solicitor in these things. They aren't ratty or anything, but to me sweats just say to people you see that "Hi, I don't care what you think of me."

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind when other people where sweats or anything. I get the days when jeans are just not looking that good. It's just for me I can't wear them in public.

So I was thinking about a little something I have been wanting for a few years now, but I can never find one up to my expectations.

Remember the nightgown Eliza wore while singing "I Could Have Danced All Night" in My Fair Lady?

I want it. Real bad.

Any tips on where to find one similar? It doesn't have to be exactly the same, but whenever I see that similar style I go weak in the knees. I just find them oh-so romantic, don't you agree?

PS. Isn't she just darling in this movie?? It's my favorite of hers.


  1. Try TopShop!

    Go to and then scroll down on the left hand side and click "last chance to buy", then on the right hand side click "lingerie & nightwear", then go to page 5 and on the top row you will see "Stripe Oversized Nightshirt".

    Hope that's what your looking for! :)

  2. I love nightgowns. Seriously. I only own one day, but one day I will collect them! They are sweet, feminine, and so so comfy! Good luck with your finals!

  3. A) this is one of my top ten movies of all time.
    B) I have a nightgown like this. (I know. Awesome.)
    C) Might I suggest, Laura Ashley, Crabtree and Evelyn or googling "country" or "traditional" nightgowns.
    D)I actually got mine at victoria secret 15 years ago.
    E)They do don't carry things like this anymore
    F)But you can get sweatpants with the word pink on your butt there.

  4. I agree. I do not like sweatpants!! I wear footie pajamas to bed and around the house! They are the best!


Leave some love! (I'd love if you did)
