There's something super sexy about a robe - and I'm not talking about that fleecy number your mum bought you from Target (although man, do I love mine). For as long as I can remember, I've wanted a vintage silk robe; a diaphanous Twenties number with an Oriental print. I can't remember how the coveting started, but I probably watched a period drama where a grimily glamorous flapper louched around with a glass of bathtub gin while her lover cleaned his gun, and got the idea that being a lush in a kimono looked quite fun. I still think I missed my calling as a Jazz Age hussy, which is why I got a thrill when I spotted this beauty on Pretty Little World Vintage's Instagram.
My loungewear repertoire usually consists of stretchy pants and oversized t-shirts, but no more - I think I'd better channel my inner minx, make the purchase and rouge my knees, don't you? Obviously it's going to make me look JUST as chic as Louise Brooks.
UPDATE: I bought it! Knees, watch out.
