Remember that scene in Clueless when our beloved Cher Horowitz said “It may sound silly, but sometimes I have more fun vegging out than when I’m partying. Maybe it’s because my party clothes are so binding….” and then proceeded to lounge around in her pajamas watching TV with her stepbrother/future love interest/father’s legal assistant (weirdness)? I don’t think there is a single quote in history that I can personally relate to more than that one.
That’s why, after a week of being stuffed into corsets and suffocating torture devices disguised as dresses, I was so enthused about the prospect of the Creative Time Slumber Party at the Ace Hotel, celebrating the launch of limited edition pajamas designed by Will Cotton. The dress code was “boudoirs and bachelor pads” and party guests got into the spirit with aplomb, showing up in everything from silk negligees to cozy cotton flannel pjs. The lobby of the Ace tends to remind me of a college library, and seeing all the guests, including Kyle DeWoody, Matt Kliegman, Brian Wolk, Claude Morais, Olivier Zahm, Cecilia Dean, and Anne Christensen, milling about made me feel like I was really at a sleepover, albeit an especially chic one.
I opted for a canary yellow silk and lace lingerie-inspired Dior dress that did the trick perfectly. All my favorite pictures from the night below taken by Joey D’Arco.

I love love love the pleating on this Dior dress. The lace is exquisite too.
