While New York is responsible for opening my eyes to new heights of luxury and high-end goodies beyond my wildest dreams, I credit my mother with exposing me to the importance of luxury on a daily basis. She’s the one that introduced me to the spa. She, along with my Chanel No.5-devoted grandmother were my pillar of all things beauty (with a trusty Bobbi Brown Beauty book by my side). She encouraged beauty rituals and cosmetics galore, the way a southern woman educated in the arts of beauty ought to.
So, it’s not strange that when I was a younger girl, she bought me a set of silk sheets. AND THEY WERE GLORIOUS. I was a teenager. I was certainly not sharing the bed with anyone. But it was the sheer decadence that me–all by lonesome–could take a bath, shave my legs, and slip into the softest, silkiest, most satiny sheets I’d ever felt, that left an impression. I learned at an early age the importance of luxury.
These 100% luxury silk pillowcases feature a classic European style envelope closure and French-seamed edges. The lightweight, breathable, and durable fabric helps maintain moisture and replenish radiance in hair and facial skin.
And while you’re making someone feel good this year for Valentine’s day, keep up the trend. Five percent of every purchase is donated to a non-profit organization that empowers young women. The RESTore Silk charity of choice for 2014 is Girls, Inc., an organization to inspire girls through programs and experiences that help them navigate gender, economic, and social barriers.
