Very Special Nightwear

What a woman wears to bed is important. But then maybe it takes a certain age in a woman's life to understand how important, or maybe I am only generalizing considering others' points of view. Yet I can attest to those women friends who give testimony, husbands are pleased when a wife wears special things, and the femininity factor for the woman is priceless. You feel so lovely.

That is why you will find me at the Verena annual sale in July. I have reached the point in my life that these are the only nightgowns and robes I wear, and fortunately I have been able to accumulate quite a selection by going to these sales.

The laces are designed and made by the company. They are not scratchy, but so very soft next to your body.

And since a special friend, who holds lots of love in my heart, has a birthday this week, I chose one for her and wrapped it in tissue paper and tied it with lace. She can be even lovelier.

Just as a reference, the gowns, robes or pajamas are made in cotton, satin or chiffon, and range in different levels of oolala.

Beautiful! I need to make special nightwear more of a priority especially when it's as pretty as the photos you posted.

I find a very soft cotton to be what I love to sleep in. However, there are times when that can be very boring. :o)
Funny that you posted this, as I just purchased a new pretty for our anniversary getaway this week-end.
I felt that the gowns purchased for surgery and recovery need to be given a rest, not just in our sight, but mentally too.
Your robe is just beautiful, and what a lucky friend you have to receive such a lovely gift.

Wow quite elegant. My usual bedtime clothes are cotton, but I think you may have given me some inspiration.
