By day I wear nice, considered clothes and take pride in looking decent, by night I become scarecrow-mum! (LOVELY NIGHTWEAR NEEDED!)

Day-wear: knitted dresses and opaques, tunic tops and skinny jeans, the odd cashmere cardi/ V-neck.

Night-wear: ancient yoga/ gym T shirts, PJ trousers that last fitted me when I was 7 months pregnant (18months ago) with bobbles on the bobbles, anything horribly misshapen, saggy, baggy or faded and socks that they give you free on long haul flights when it's cold (last flight was 3 years ago) {blush].

Please help me end this terrible double life- and show me some lovely, nice quality, comfy and warm (and stylish) sleepwear.

Sleep naked. More cash for day-wear.

you need charlotte

silk 'Autograph' at M&S nightdresses - about £40 each. Buy 7 and lie around insouciantly with an eyebrow raised.

Get a matching silk dressing gown too and some of those whore fluffy mules grin

£25 for a satin one - guess the christmas silk ones aren't out yet

llareggu- I would sleep naked but it's far to cold now and DH nicks the covers.

For ages I have not spent anything on sleepwear- I always think I'd rather buy a nice dress etc. However tonight I realised I really do look like a scarecrow. V old faded PJ bottoms that have grown a few dress sizes and keep falling down and pathetic old grey T that is so thin you could spit through it (as my mum would say!) And the flight socks!

well you probably know my feelings about socks for the bedroom

<<stretches out a cashmere-encased foot, points toes elegantly and purrs>>

Ditch the flight socks, for sure!!!!

lazy me

AngelinaJolly Tue 13-Oct-09 23:13:23

cremolafoam- I like Charlotte, thanks, but LOL at down filled booties.

LaurieFC- LOL at mules. I so wish I could raise one eyebrow- have tried all my life but alas my forehead muscles just won't do it. Could I just get away with tapping my talons on my crystal G&T tumbler??

cremolafoam Tue 13-Oct-09 23:15:19

and you wouldn't look adisgrace on the school run

OurLadyOfPerpetualSupper Tue 13-Oct-09 23:18:36 Nice 'jarmies with a wrap cardi over the top.

AngelinaJolly Tue 13-Oct-09 23:20:20

Oh God, I think I'm developing a fetish for old-fashioned brushed cotton PJ with roses printed on them. Is this wrong for a woman in her mid-30s?

LTEC- I do believe you can purr! Will defo ditch the aeroplane socks- once I have bought some alternatives. (How does one wash cashmere socks BTW?)

cremolafoam Tue 13-Oct-09 23:20:37

some vavavoom

AngelinaJolly Tue 13-Oct-09 23:24:20

Cremolafoam- GENIUS! Night to school wear grin

OurLady- phew, brushed flannel fetish over, those PJs are lovely. How come the Italians get it so right? Honestly M&S is pathetic in comparison!

cremolafoam Tue 13-Oct-09 23:25:00

ooh angelina now you're talking

AngelinaJolly Tue 13-Oct-09 23:30:22

"Peter Pan Collar" <snurk> 'nuff said grin

LaurieFairyCake Tue 13-Oct-09 23:31:27

this used to be the pyjama room but is now called Me and Em

OurLadyOfPerpetualSupper Tue 13-Oct-09 23:34:20

Check out the lace-trimmed vests at BDN as well - it's where I get my ski thermals from don't you know.

But you can wear them all winter under v-necked jumpers with the lace just showing (obviously I wash them between wears).

cremolafoam Tue 13-Oct-09 23:34:22

and I've been looking everywhere fro a loon jean

BettyTurnip Tue 13-Oct-09 23:41:31

Who in their right mind would spend £80 on a nightie? shock
