Outlandish Loungewear, circa 1933


If a big bag of money suddenly tumbles from the sky and plops on my lap (and my hips magically shrink several inches), this 1933 lounging suit for sale in Coronet Weeds Vintage's Etsy shop just might be the first thing I'd go for (although, even with a bag of cash, I would still find the $550.00 price tag far too pricey).  Bag o' cash or not, I probably should just buy this Eva Dress pattern and make it myself.  I love that it's a bit over the top...just what I, the outlandish Baroness, would like to lounge or garden in ;)

It is a little over-the-top, but still super-cute!

OMG, I love love love that suit! but yeah it's a tad overly price, but come on if you did have that bag o cash, $550 just burning in your pocket, you would buy it wouldn't you? ;) I know I would! =D

I've been eyeing that outfit for years it seems. It's been on Ebay and I saw it on Etsy. Love it. Smarter to go the make it yourself route at that price though!

Love it, and of course I stared at it too for ages. Over the top? Noooo, I'd wear at any day!
But if I had that money available, I would probably buy several other pieces rather than blow it on this one thing, as wonderful as it may be.

I love these clothes. I sooo wish we lived in a time where "loungewear" was an actual important part of your wardrobe. (And sweats and workout gear does not qualify.)
