Pourquoi un pyjama?


Vintage nightgowns are one of my biggest guilty pleasures. Pastel colors, sheer layers, lace details... What's not to love? I even wear my favorite ones as daytime dresses! In fact, I was sporting this exact blue nightgown the first time I met my boyfriend's parents. Is that socially acceptable? Hehe. Kidding. 

My best trick to wear nightgowns in real life is to pair them with more structured pieces such as biker jackets, blazers and other menswear-inspired pieces. I also like to temporarily morph the gowns into skirts by wearing a button-down shirt on top and making a little knot at the waist. Voilà, instant magic skirt!

Do you sometimes wear pajamas as real-life clothes?

To Find Out

Lately, I've been finding some pretty amazing stuff while thrifting. This sweet blouse is one of my most recent finds and I was super eager to wear it! It has the cutest peter pan collar and some tiny, tiny shoulder pads that add the perfect amount of structure to the soft rayon fabric. Me like. I used to remove all shoulder pads by default, but I have since discovered that garments with small ones often look better when left as-is.

What do you think? Shoulder pads: yay or nay?

Here + There









Preparing my home tour for Ton Petit Look made me fall all over again for my kitschy living room. I ended up with way too many pictures and I couldn't fit all of them in the article, so here are a few of them for your viewing pleasure. 

If it weren't for the bad plumbing, I would surely keep this apartment forever and ever. Le sigh.
