I think the nightwear fascination started when I saw 'Bringing Up Baby' with Katharine Hepburn. In one scene she's wearing a sheer polkadot dressing gown whilst on the phone to Cary Grant, pretending to be attacked by a leopard. Ever since then, I've had a bit of a predilection for glamorous nightwear. My Mum let me wear an old knitted bed jacket of hers from the '60s when I was younger - powder blue, in the softest knit. I wonder what happened to it? Despite my little collection, my husband prefers to see me in nightwear of the '90s grunge variety, i.e. pyjama bottoms and a band t-shirt. There's no accounting for taste.
I was aiming for 'languid' in these shots but am not sure I pulled it off - I didn't have my tripod, my husband was fast asleep, and I have no remote, so there was lots of frantic running back and forth and constructing towers out of furniture because I wanted to capture that beautiful early morning light.
