Word of warning- if you're going to buy it, get it from the actual Peter Alexander boutiques, their online store or their mail order system. I originally wanted to purchase it from David Jones but they were selling it for $79.95 instead of the RRP of $59.00. They had even gone over the $59.00 tag with black marker and although you could still see the $59.00 price through the marker, they wouldn't budge on the price.
It's part of the Sleep and Day range which features pyjamas which are a little more wearable for daytime, and I interpret this as still being in my PJs at midday and going to collect the mail- moreso than actually wearing it out as a dress.
I was also looking for bed socks today too. I have the most adorable pair which are like little mary janes and were purchased at St Vincent's Hospital and I'm quite sure were crocheted by a 103 year old nun in the Hunter Valley*, but aside from that, my little tooties need some backups!
Shops are seriously lacking in this department right now. The best I could come up with were these hilarious Doona boots which are a rip off, cheapo version of some more superior and expensive ones I've seen elsewhere.
I bought my sexy, $12.00 versions from Target and while they came in a delicate powder-blue, heart print fabric, I opted for the purple shoe and bag print- They're sooooooooooo Carrie Bradshaw I JUST DIE.
*They were actually crocheted by the awesomely talented woman who delivers the food to the patients at St Vincent's Private. Apparently she also takes orders when she has a spare 2 minutes and can whip up a pair in those same 2 minutes. Unfortunately I've never come across her in all my stays at the Hospital.
When I got them home, I realised that they're kind of like oven mits.
Am I right?
Who picked up on the Fatal Attraction (to Cuteness) reference?
My baby darling Georgina had a big day today too, so I decided to tuck her into bed and read her her favourite story book, Who wants to be a Poodle I don't by Lauren Child.
I found this gorgeous book at Lesley McKay bookshop on Queen St, Woollahra. It's all about a pampered Poodle name Trixie Twinkle Toes who doesn't like being a poncy little Poodle, basically.
It suits Georgina really well as she looks divine but she's a bit of a rough-nut sometimes.
"Who wants a belly rub?!?"
Man, my bed looks small in those pics. Freakishly giant me makes a Queen look like a single. I wonder what NBA players sleep in?
What recent purchases have you made? Does anyone have any hints for other cute jamies for Winter?
