A blog post for m'ladies! Guys, come back in a few days for the next post (unless you are looking for some vintage lingerie for your woman, then go directly here to my etsy shop!).
I found an absolutely darling vintage nightgown at an estate sale. It is oh so Betty Draper answering the door to the milkman...woo-woo!
Let's be real here girlfriends, the lingerie at Vickies Secret is sexy and fabulous but the majority of us need a little fluff and pouf to hide those minor imperfections! Our hubbies don't care about those little lumps and bumps, but lets face it, in order for us to not feel ridiculous, we need a little structure or mystery to our bedroom garments.
This beautiful blue nightie comes with a robe to layer on top of the gown. It is long enough to remain lady-like while prancing around the house or sipping a cup of tea. It is modest enough that you won't feel silly wearing it 'just because'.
And, it's just sheer enough without the robe that your man will like it in the boudoir!
The husband came with me to this estate sale. When I was paying for this piece, the older woman who was collecting the money looked at my hubby and whispered "have fun" while a long line of people looked on behind us!
I will not be keeping this pretty find, it is in the etsy shop and would be perfect for a bride or as a gift for yourself.
Have any of you found vintage lingerie while at the estates? Share below!
Wow! I remember when those were new!Very pretty and Draperish...I must say. I find things like nightgown/penoir sets more than any undergarments. I wish I would find some good ole bullit bras for myself...PS: love your blog. Found it over at Mick's.ReplyDelete
Love Mick's blog, always so fun with the cheery music he has playing! Thanks for stopping by and following :)Delete
supercute! It's good to remember that there are more options out there than tanks and pj pants.ReplyDelete
I know MBFS! Its just so easy to throw on the good ol' standbys.Delete
Really pretty, and love the color.ReplyDelete
Hey, I love your new blog header too!
Kym~Someone else thought it was pretty too because it sold overnight in my etsy shop! Less than 24 hours in the store.Delete
Thanks for noticing the banner. I worked with a web designer and cartoonist in Florida. It was fun watching my vision come to fruition :)
This makes me laugh. My sweet kind elderly neighbor wear a gown outside to get her mail and water a few plants. We always call it her "moo-moo" but I would never be caught wearing it to open the door, let alone walk out to get the mail!ReplyDelete
