Eight Things That Prove True Luxury Happens in Private
Indulge in your independence via everyday luxuries, including limited-edition M.M.LaFleur x Petite Plume sleepwear.
Escaping to a silent retreat upstate. Digging into your second bowl of pasta while swaddled in cashmere on the couch. Blasting ABBA throughout your apartment. What do these activities have in common? They embody true luxury better than any designer handbag or fast car ever could, because they’re just for you—not for the sake of impressing other people.
In our opinion, elevating your alone time is the ultimate luxury. After all, time to yourself can be hard to come by and is absolutely instrumental in maintaining your mental health. It helps to strengthen your sense of self, serving as a reminder that you deserve to participate in an enjoyable endeavor of your choice.
So next time you’re looking to treat yourself, we encourage you to go it solo. Need some inspiration? Here are eight things that will remind you that true luxury happens in private.

1. Beautiful pajamas
A night in calls for luxurious clothing. And in our opinion, nothing says I’ve made it like gorgeous pajamas. You feel at ease but look elegant. No one is there to see you, but you still dressed up. Fabulous.
To get you started on your sophisticated sleepwear journey, we just launched a limited-edition sleepwear collection with luxury pajama brand Petite Plume. Each piece features our beloved Sahara print and is made from 100% pima cotton jersey, which drapes beautifully and softens with each washing. The collection includes a classic pajama set, a long sleeve short set, a subtly sexy nightshirt, a cozy robe, and a matching eye mask. Bonne nuit!
4. A finely tuned skincare routine.
Of course, healthy skin looks good, but it feels even better—which only you can appreciate. Once you know what works for you and what doesn’t, your skincare routine transforms from a dreaded obligation into a relaxing self-care ritual. Before you know it, you’ll look forward to this built-in alone time. If you sleep with an eye mask, be sure to select one that’s made from natural, breathable fibers like this buttery pima cotton one.
8. A great book.
Reading is an inherently solitary activity, and you’re far more likely to immerse yourself in the story when you’re alone in a quiet, comfortable space. For next-level coziness, try this chunky cardigan or this luxe robe. Need a new book rec? See what the world’s most interesting people are reading.
