Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie Review and Giveaway


I don't generally go in for super fancy sleep duds, and have a few sets of PJs that I adore. But when the Plum Pretty Sugar Loungerie folks asked if I'd like to do a review and giveaway, I just couldn't resist their adorable cuts and gorgeous prints.

I was sent the Tunic Dress in Darling Jardin Blue to review.*


As you can see, this cotton tunic has a deep notch neckline, an empire-waist drawstring, and a high thigh hemline. It's too short for me to consider wearing on its own, but would make a darling nightgown on a more petite gal. The cotton is thin and does wrinkle fairly easily, but it's also marvelously lightweight and breathable, so perfect for anyone who tends to overheat at night. I was sent a size medium and it fits closely but well. (I generally take a size 8/medium in mall store dresses.)

You can bet I'll find a way to make this tunic work as streetwear. That print is so lovely, I just can't relegate it to the bedroom forever!

I've got a second Tunic Dress in Darling Jardin Blue to give away to one lucky Already Pretty reader! Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Be a U.S. resident.

  2. Visit the Plum Pretty Sugar Website and make sure the Tunic Dress in Darling Jardin Blue will fit ya!

  3. Leave a comment on this post telling us which color you'd pick if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.

  4. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, September 19, 2011. I'll draw a winner at random the following day. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

So cute! I think I'd order it in a Large, one size up - just for comfort in snuggle-sleeping :D

Thanks, Sal!

Super cute! I think I'd order a Large so I could layer it with other things-like thermals so I could wear it year-round.
Thanks!

I like it in the blue. Medium should fit but I'd probably also go with large (one size up) for comfort sleeping. I liked their silk robes as well. Cute sleepwear!

Andrea said...

Wow, super cute!! I would pick the same one they sent you [I loves me some blue!] in a size small. I will be crossing EVERYTHING as I would love to have one of these!

Thanks Sal!

What a great cut! I would order in a Large, and I love the blue but if I had a choice I would go with Pink Love Poppy and wear it over skinny jeans with my best knee-high boots and a lacy cami underneath. Thank you, Sal!

A medium would be perfect for me! I've been stalking this company for years on FB and Twitter. I only have gotten a headband so far, though- but I want one of everything on the site, not even kidding. Beckoning Creatures may be my favorite print, but I wouldn't swear to it...

iwonderandiwander said...

If we're talking color, I'd go with the Jardin Bleu. Size-wise I think medium would be best. I've heard a lot about their sleepwear, so I would be excited to win and get to try it out myself. Thanks for another fun giveaway!

That's way too cute not to wear out. That le jardin blue pattern is adorable.

I'm about your size and would throw it on with leggings and sandals for the perfect brunch outfit. :-)

My favorite color is definitely the Darling Jardin Blue.

KL.Kielman said...

Well, I love the blue that you were sent and I have a cute pair of distressed skinnies that I'd love to wear it with. I think it'd look cute with leggings and a long belted cardigan.

If I had to pick...I could do a ton with the tunic that's labeled "Beckoning creatures." Oh the possibilities :) I have a vest that would go with it perfectly.

I'd definitely order a large for layering. Hooray!

Lilac w/Ribbons in medium! I like the idea of layering it over skinny jeans!

I have been sick all summer, and spent the last three months in pjs, so a nice blue tunic would perk up my life nicely. There is less of me than there used to be, but I would still get the large.

Being the creature of habit that I am I'd go with the blue in a medium. BUT I really also like the white....choices, choices....

Definitely a large, and definitely the Jardin Blue. I love the bold color. On me the paler colors with that big print would look a bit old fashioned.

Medium for me, too! I would choose the Pink Love Poppy, but would love the Blue Jardin... either one. And I love Megan's idea of wearing it over skinny jeans and boots with a lacy cami underneath, plus I'd throw an open cropped jacket or cashmere cardi over the top! By far the cutest loungewear I've seen—this tunic would put everything else in my drawer to shame!

Dorothy said...

I love the Jardein Bleu in medium! I wear house dresses all the time and would love to add this to my collection!

I love the Midnight in a Paris Garden!

The lavender and the blue are my favorites, but I think the blue is best.

Sleepwear that can double as street clothes are my favorite, especially when they're pretty, too.

I'm curious about the fit across the shoulders. Most wovens (button-ups, jackets, etc.) are too tight across my back shoulders and too loose across my chest. For most brands, my chest takes a XS/S and my back takes a M.
