Really, what I've been virtually living in all weekend (and what I'm wearing right now as I type this) is this very cool early 1930s one-piece cotton loungewear getup (the label calls it "lonjerie"). I initially thought they were beach pjs (and I've seen a 1932 picture of Carole Lombard wearing beach pajamas that were shorter like these). However, it seems to me that these are also somewhat similar in style to the "kitchenette" one-piece pajama garment, the pattern for which I saw over at Decades of Style. According to a 1930 advertisement posted by Painted Woman, really, the ideal footwear with such "loungerie" would be Daniel Green slippers. Duly noted on my greedy gutserie list for next Xmas. The little lord really wanted to be in the pictures, so I let him make a fleeting appearance.
