Welcome to yet another post about some upcoming pyjama parties-apparently the hippest bashes to be seen at this summer. Given the amount of money I’ve spent over the years on gorgeous jammies, only to have them wasted on my man who only ever notices what I’m wearing if its nothing, its nice to finally have a chance to show them off. I’ve also borrowed one of Vintage Secret’s gorgeous 1930s dressing gowns- we have a few more in stock, as well as bed jackets, kimonos etc; they’re not on the website but you can make an appointment to come and buy or borrow one.To brush up on your bedtime style. have a read of the recent Queens of Vintage article; Vintage Nightwear; A History.
This week’s bedtime offerings include The Last Tuesday Society’s lecture by D.J Taylor on the Bright Young Things– also famous for galavanting around London in their PJs and having a spiffing time.You may remember the wonderful Stephen Fry film of the same name- the lecture should give you a real insight into the true life stories behind the characters.They’ll also be a set by the Broken Hearts DJ duo, and if you go in your PJs, the entrance fee is halved to a fiver!
And on Wednesday, David Carter is once more opening up his gorgeous boutique hotel, 40 Winks for a night of Bedtime Stories– think silk eye masks, fluffy slippers and your teddy a la brideshead.Email email@example.com to book your place for £20, drinks and nibbles included.
