Are you robe ready?
Do you love lounging around in a cosy, cosy robe or are you a robe-out-of-site-type-of-girl?
Do you love a long, snuggly fit or a slide in silky style?
I think the robe, like many of our other fashion staples, is just that and certainly there is one for all occasions. The need-comfort robe, the a-little-sexy robe or the cover-up robe, for starters. Then there is the lazy-not-getting-dressed robe, which let’s be truthful, are absolutely imperative on some days.
I like a snuggly fit and mine to be a longer length; the idea is to be the comfortable and warm go-to after a delicious bath.
A robe in my mind is just as important as the party dress, even more so, because we wear them every day and for much longer. Yet oftentimes we don’t consider investing in a “wardrobe of robes” because we think they aren’t necessary. The same goes for pretty lingerie.
I have always had a “thing” about being caught out in bad sleepwear.
I am not entirely sure where that notion comes from but it is one of those to be locked in the mind forever along with the must-wear-good-underwear-at-all-times philosophy. Somewhere in my hazy recollections it may have been words of wisdom according to my mother.
The short (or long of it) is I am in the mood and in the market for a new robe(s).
I am throwing my threadbare and unattractive numbers away and smartening up. I might not Jean Harlow myself totally with the full on feather fit but a little silk and chenille to bundle up will do the trick. xv
