A Pajama and Loungewear Obsession: Part Two

This part of the loungewear series centers mostly around robes and fancier boudoir wear.

Le sigh... I want all of these pretties! As impractical as the fluffier and feather-y-er ones are, they just look like so much fun to wear!

Ann Sheridan in a silky boudoir robe.
Claudette Colbert in a lovely patterned silky robe, with an interesting corset-y bodice method for tying it up.

A pretty dressing gown/robe on Amy Adams in Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day! A wonderful movie with some great costuming. 
Jean Harlow in a glamorous boudoir set (looks like a slip beneath the robe) with some seriously feather-y goodness going on around those sleeves.
Joan Crawford in a silk set. 
Carole Landis preening in style.
Miss Crawford, again, this time in the 1940s in a floaty robe set.
Screenshot I took from Moon Over Miami of Carole Landis relaxing in a gorgeous blue silk and cream lace boudoir robe.
From another Betty Grable movie - Betty and June Haver in The Dolly Sisters in matching boudoir gowns.

Jean Harlow again with more fluffy sleeves. 

Another image of Jean Harlow in the same robe as the first picture of her. 
Jean, yet again, in a less elaborate but still lovely robe.

Greta Garbo in what looks like some men's inspired pajamas and a robe.
Rita Hayworth in a comfy looking dressing gown.
Alexis Smith in a very pretty gown. And those slippers (on the ground by the couch)!

Judy Garland, in a robe with some frilly cuffed sleeves.
Margaret O'Sullivan in a simple robe.
The wonderful Judy Garland again, in a sheer robe/gown.
Audrey Hepburn in a sheer robe that is too frilly/lacey/choking for my taste, but I had to include her.
An absolutely gorgeous robe on an unknown model.
A simple yet glamorous robe on on a lady whose name I am totally blanking on! Somebody help me out, it's driving me mad because she is so familiar..!

Joan Blondelle in a really cute boudoir set. From Screen Goddess
Alexis Smith, also from Screen Goddess.

  1. After having been ill for a week I REALLy appreciate the need for some prety loungewear!

  2. Oh dear! I hope you feel better soon... pretty loungewear would surely speed up the process, I think. ;)

  3. What lovely images! I'm working on sewing myself some new loungewear (a 1930's dress and jacket made in a flannel). Thanks for the inspiration :)

  4. How lovely! Do share the results when you've finished, I can't wait to see!

  5. OMG who is that actress? It's going to drive me nuts!
