ever since I used to watch Sabrina Explains it all (or whatever that show was which starred the girl who later starred in Sabrina the Teenage Witch)- I have always wanted some awesomely cool pyjamas. She always had really good ones. I think I remember some which had sushi printed all over them. They were generally big and roomy, and had awesome prints on them.
But! PYJAMAS SUCK!!! Ok, pyjamas themselves don't suck- I love them dearly, especialy since most days I wear them all day. But the choice of pyjamas availaboe (atleast in this fucking country) is terrible!!! There's either the bordering on sex-clothes (satiny fabrics, lace, underwires, etc), or the extreme other end of the sleepwear spectrum of childish frumpiness (winnie the pooh* or assorted other cutesy childish characters, combined with soft fabrics (an actual plus!) and either boring pale colours or lurid pink).
There are combinations of the two, and there are some which don't have any of the above trangressions of taste and style (ie, plain and boring, yet comfortable). But nothing which satisfies my comfort needs nor my style requirements for lounging around all day/sleeping at night. I don't understand why there are NO pyjamas which don't suck so much ass. It is seriously a choice between hideous and hideous.
I've been looking for about 10 years I guess (!) and still no luck. I want sushi pyjamas goddammit!!
*I HATE winnie the pooh!! PASSIONATELY!! I also don't care for snoopy, or generic teddy bears, ducks, sheep, lame messages on the shirt ('Getting my beauty sleep!' etc). Nor do I like David And goliath brand, or, sadly paul frank, possibly the closest provider of what i'm looking for.
In a perfect world I would be able to find the perfect japanese character pyjamas (ie, cinnamoroll, San X) or just cool/unusual printed pjs, in my size (alas, japanese ones would likely be xxxsmall). I'd love some with cowboys on them, maybe anchors/sailor motifs, sushi as I said, fruits?? Anything not lame, basically.
Ahem. Glad I got that off my chest!!
