I gazed over at it, all black, lacy and smug. It was right.
Sure, consulting a medical professional over the alarming frequency in which I converse with garments may have been a more appropriate idea (don’t even get me started on the banter I exchanged with a sock last night, oh no!), but I DID IT! I yanked the nightgown out of the clearance basket and I BOUGHT it!
The method behind my sudden (ha, sudden. Please!) madness? To whisk it home and see if it could be fashioned into an everyday ensemble, a la a style challenge, perfect for shopping and sitting on bridges in (and definitely not just for slumbering in), and here we have it!
Miss “I’m $2. What more could you want from life?’’
Honestly (and surprisingly), it was functional. COMFORTABLE. There were no “quick! Did you see that twit? She’s wearing a nightie!’’ whispers as I stomped around town, and my boyfriend didn’t get that particular flash of fear in his eye as I marched out of the bedroom. (Have you ever seen that look?! Oh, it’s a goodie! It last made an appearance when I attempted to smother myself in a tulle number for a barbecue. Fun!)

Doesn’t Emily from Emily O Photography‘s night gown-over-jeans combination look sensational? Nice work!
And then there’s Gala’s divine powder-pink slip! (Which, if it was any cuter, I’m preeetty sure we’d have to notify the Cute Police about.)
And finally, WOW Megan Nielsen! That’s a nightie?! What a spectacular thrift find!
Have YOU ever donned a nightgown in public before? Would you ever don a nightgown in public? Is it an item that can successfully be introduced to the outdoors, or are you just shaking your head right now and thinking, ‘’Corrine, you look like a complete fool. And you’re wearing a NIGHTIE!’’?
