Vintage Outfit Post-1930s Lounging Pajamas

If there was a decade that elevated lounging to an art form, it was the 1930s.


Beautiful robes and hostess pajamas meant that relaxing in the comfort of your own home could be a supremely stylish endeavor.


Hollywood stars such as Norma Shearer and Ginger Rogers exemplified the look  in films such as The Divorcee, Top Hat and The Astaire and Rogers series.   Depression era audiences longing for opulence must have appreciated the glamour, even if they couldn't have it for themselves.  

Today such glamorous home wear is a thing of the past, replaced by yoga pants and sweats.   While a  Ginger Rogers style fluffy night gown or Norma Shearer's sequined robe might not be exactly practical, I can't help but have a certain fondness for the look.  That's why I was so excited to see Time Machine Vintage offering a pair of 1930s Style Oriental Lounging Pajamas for an excellent price on facebook.   Kim used to sell her wares on Etsy but realized it would be more economical for herself and her buyers to sell on facebook.  She now offers her wares through the Facebook group 1920s 30s and 40s Market Place which is wear I found these dreamy pajamas.   

They are supremely comfortable particularly when unbelted

and the asian style floral print is classic 1930s.

The best thing ever to wear at home while watching movies with dogs

  1. Ah, I wondered what had happened to Kim! I own a pair of cotton 30s beach pyjamas by her, bought when she was trading on Etsy. They're great for loafing round the house in.

  2. Those silky pajamas look more like an outfit to go outside in BOL

  3. LOVE those, and they look fabulously comfortable!!

  4. Nothing better than loafing in lounging pajamas! I had to make a few and would never live without em.
    These are so lovely and the green buttons really are a brilliant touch.

  5. What a gorgeous outfit for lounging around in! I too feel a special fondness for such gorgeous lounge wear! One day perhaps I will take the plunge and try fabulous opulence at home! <3

  6. Oh Mom loves those pajamas! They do look comfortable

  7. Looks super comfy and very stylish at the same time! Love the floral print very much :-)

  8. Oh I love these! They look so cosy but glamorous at the same time. I have a couple of modern style satin lounging pyjamas that I love but my boudoir wardrobe is definitely lacking an authentic set like this. Top purchase! xx

  9. Deeply, deeply gorgeous lounge wear ensemble. This is one of my favourite looks you've ever shared with us. So chic, sweet and elegant!
