One of the things that strikes me as odd about London is the lack of gorgeous sleep wear in its plethora of gorgeous stores. Weird, I know. Back in Australia I had drawers buckling at the hinges full of Peter Alexander slinky nighties, PJs and (stylish) moo-moos. Naturally, I expected to be blown away by a shopping mecca like London. Perhaps I should have known better than to think that a city that never sleeps needs sleepwear! Alas, heavily disappointed Hannah sulked all the way home for some online shopping and that was that.
While my British drawers have now been rectified and are vibrantly filled with PA once more, my obsession with the Australian Pajama King continues. Do I really need another pair of PJ bottoms? You bet your right bed sock I do. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered the latest collection is a reinvention of his too-relevant-not-to-share Wizard of Oz collection.
The new range is part of PA’s ‘Movie Night’ theme, which also includes Gentleman Prefer Blondes, Harry Potter and Star Wars. (Obviously, I think the Wizard of Oz is the standout). (Not biased). (Also don’t work for Peter Alexander).
Besides being utterly and fabulously relevant to our blog, the Wizard of Oz collection will brighten up your holiday bed time. You might not get a lot of sleep while you travel, but you are going to look fantastic, and hey, hotel rooms are public places making a new sleep outfit a justifiable investment.
Here are my picks from Peter’s latest collection and your future wardrobe.
