The Cat's Pyjamas!

So StyleHearts, I have a lovely plan for kicking off the labor day weekend. The Art Deco Society of Los Angeles holds an annual Art Deco Festival, (a weekend homage to one of my most fave periods), on none other than the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Art Deco is a design style that spans from the 1910's through the 1930's. 

And I for the first time EVER, will be there! The kickoff events will be a Welcome Cocktail Party and a Bon Voyage Pajama Party! Of course, this calls for some serious sewing and some fabulous research to be done! So I share with you the fruits of my initial labor.

In researching pajamas of the period I found that there are not only fabulous samplings of lingerie and pj's to pull from, as pictured above, but a whole category of pyjamas I knew nothing about!  Beach Pyjamas! Fabulous, beyond wide leg, lounging pant sets and leisure jumpsuits for the beach and created by Ms. Coco Chanel herself! 

Murder! I've got so many great choices. Maybe I'll go with more of a hostess pajama. Perhaps a little gold lame, a lace turban, the works! Or perhaps I'll go whacky and wear a cat suit! After all a girl wouldn't want to get the high hat at an ace romp! That would be all wet.

  1. Well, this post certainly gave new insight into pajamas!

    Beach pajamas sound like an awesome idea, until they get wet. ;)
