There is quite a bit of circumstantial evidence that this dress may, in fact, be a nightgown. Exhibit A: It was purchased at Soma Intimates a store that, as the name implies, primarily sells intimates. Exhibit B: It was hanging on a rack next to snowflake pajama pants. Exhibit C: The fabric is exactly the same as in the pair of Winnie the Pooh pajamas I had in 1977 (sans, of course, pictures of Kanga and Pooh).
In spite of the mounting evidence that this dress was not intended for the office, I am wearing it because it was the first thing I saw this morning and it is absurdly comfortable. Although I find baby-doll/empire waist dresses unflattering on me, the use of industrial strength control top tights helps keep everything in check. I should have put on an accessory or two, but I was running late.
