Related #1: Fashioning Nightwear

Every so often, I write a column where five hundred words just isn't enough.  There's all kinds of pictures and resources that I would love to share.  I'm starting a series of posts the day after each column comes out in print (ehm, that's Friday then) with some supplementary material.  It won't ebe every Friday, but it will be a recurring thing.

If you read yesterday's post, then you'll know that I don't really take nightwear too seriously.  I do, however, have huge love for pajamas.  Pajamas are great.  The best pajamas are the sartorial equivalent of a hug.  The ultimate in loungewear, a nice pair of a pajamas is only one point in the triangle of the perfect relaxing winter evening (the other two points being a hot drink and a good book).

Here's some pajama related information and inspiration.
