Loungewear, aka what I wear on lazy Saturday mornings/to sleep in at night. (Check out winterized weekend style—not the stuff I sleep in—with this post.)
I can’t say that I thrift much of my loungewear, because I’ve had most of it forrrrr everrrr. I mean, isn’t loungewear just stuff you’ve had so long it’s not in decent condition to wear out of the house anymore?
I jest—most things that have gone all holey on me saw the garment recycling bag long ago. (PSA: if you live in Atlanta they recycle textiles here.) But most of my pajama-like garb is, in fact, decades-old retail purchases/gifts, or a hand-me-down from someone who didn’t want it anymore.
I’ve thrifted a few pieces and, tell ya what, if you’re like me and want that exquisitely worn-in feel (see below), thrift stores can be the PERFECT place to find something quality (won’t shred on you) but also pre-worn (someone else has already done all the work to get that cotton t-shirt to the ideal softness).
Now I know some folks advocate scrapping all the crappy stuff and buying yourself nice silky pajamas and robes because YOU ARE WORTH IT. (Or you need to say goodbye to a bunch of clothes that are past their prime. On that part, I agree.)
