My favorite Holiday wear

In my house, Christmas and Victoria's Secret go hand in hand.  For the past 3 years my husband has gotten me pajamas from Victoria's Secret and I adore them.  They're my absolute favorite presents, soft and warm and cozy, plus they usually come with Slippers. I would be very sad if he skipped a year of this tradition.

I don't know what it is about Victoria's Secret at Christmas time for me, but I just adore every thing about them in the winter time.  You'd think that's odd since even in their fashion show they're almost naked.  But for me, Victoria's Secret is all things warm, cozy and decadent.  I know they're not all that expensive, but they're definitely higher priced than Forever 21 and WetSeal. Their pajamas and sweats are so well made and soft that they feel, at least to me, far more expensive than they are.

For the longest time I was obsessed with the PINK line, but now that I've turned 25 (and am a mother) I feel that I'm a bit to old for the line.  I don't feel that way for everyone else, but because where I live it's mostly 13 yr olds traipsing  about in their PINK sweats and boots, I do feel a bit silly waiting to pick my son up from school in a PINK hoodie.  But I've recently noticed that they have a VS line of sweats in Velour and Fleece and in Terry cloth and that makes me very happy.  I've already fallen in love with a few of their hoodies and pants online.  I can't wait to pick up a few pairs to essentially live in.  Okay now that I'm working I'm certain it will eventually be more than a few pairs.  Still though lounge wear is always necessary.

There is one Victoria's Secret item that I covet that I will most likely never be able to get.  The pink Santa Hat with the rhinestones. I've wanted one for years, but unfortunately they came out at a time when I wasn't working, and my parents refused to buy me one, and now that I am working they are no longer for sale.  So I will always covet it, and be slightly jealous of those that managed to snag one when they were for sale.
