The Babydoll Sleeper

Selkie

The Dolly era of the 1960's is the inspiration behind this "breakfast in bed" babydoll "sleeper" (although you probably won't be sleeping in it, let's be real we have been blessed with sweatpants) You will certainly look like a fabulously frilly pink cupcake, wondering the house listening to oldies, making popcorn, watching marathons, and getting the attention of a certain someone- as these seem to be the only evening activities of late.
The history of the babydoll dress is fascinating, and no one explains it better than AnOther magazine's Olivia Singer;

"The babydoll dress (loosely defined as a garment with an empire waist and a skirt ending above the knee) has a storied history, and one somehow always rooted in gender politics. From its appearance at the turn of the 20th century and later revival by Balenciaga couture, through to Courtney Love's kinderwhore styling and Meadham Kirchhoff's homage to her, it has designated everything from the formal to the salacious, the irreverent to the chic. But, whether employed as 40s nightwear or in 90s punk performance, the babydoll has always been somehow synonymous with female liberation, whether emancipation from corsetry or the strictures of hemline etiquette."
