Janet's Wish List: Evenings In or Out

By Janet Bennett

Sleep snob that I am, I'm dreaming of spending my nights on 100 percent Egyptian 500-thread count crisp cotton sheets (spare me anything on sateen, puhleeze) from the likes of luxe linen manufacturer Matouk. A set (meaning duvet cover, shams and sheets in king) of Lulu DK Matouk Paradiso in ocean blue or honeydew green would set me back at least a grand at Abrielle in Foxhall Square or Emissary, but hey, aren't I spending at least a third of my life asleep? As long as I'm hallucinating, perfect percale sheets from Bellino at Bloomie's, Yves Delorme, or Anichini at Kellogg Collection would also offer me sweet sleep. Just for lounging around by the fire, though, wrapping up in Kumi Kookoon's silk-filled throw blanket ($625) in lush indigo from Abrielle would be my indulgence of choice.

When I do choose to leave my cozy next for an evening out, I'm wishing my fairy fashionable godmother would dress me in a slinky midnight blue Lanvin shift with a ruffled front ($1355) at Saks Fifth Avenue and to take the chill off, a Loro Piana cashmere cape with sable collar ($8,300 from Neiman Marcus). Bentleys are far too bourgeois for getting around town. Hipper and not to mention faster, I'm hoping to hop on DWR's Electrobike Pi ($8,000) -- in Ferrari red, of course.
