Health Warning: May Cause Blindness

You like pink?
I got some pink.

Yes I'm wearing my PJs.  Not just any old PJs mind you, these don't get to slip between the sheets and crumple up.  No way.
These are a migraine-inducing pair of 1930s lounging pyjamas in a very fine, floaty silk that I imagine the original owner donning for the odd game of late-night poker and gin-slings.

The colour is so intense that I get a visual shock every time I walk past my clothes rack.
They make me smile.

A massive green silk rose is the finishing touch.  Not much else needed except for cocktail rings and a snakeskin clutch.


I love the details like the scalloped collar and all the red and white spotty edging and how about that embroidery?  The set is mint and I feel so lucky to have found it on Regina's eBay store, Neo Retro, several weeks ago.

Vivienne Westwood Melissa wedges are optional - I grabbed these for half price when the Melissa Australia online store had them for half-price in a Melbourne Fashion Week snap promotion.  Yay!
Couldn't decide between metallic purple and light blue nail polish - picked both:).

I've been so touched by all your very kind and sensitive responses to my last post featuring the Klimt swimsuit.  Thank you so much all you wonderful readers.
I'm trying to keep on top of responding, slowly getting there - I get so engrossed in reading and perving at all your amazing posts.
