I've been drawn to the idea of a kimono robe for YEARS but never got round to actioning the idea. When I was little, my Grandpa brought my sister and I (possibly even my brother too - the poor chap) back silky kimono dressing gowns from one of his trips. Mine was pink with a huge rose embroidered on it. I felt pretty darn glamorous in it I won't lie.
I love the idea of wearing a robe like this over un-fancy, comfortable nightwear. A love worn white t-shirt from some club you once belonged to many moons ago or a marathon your boyfriend ran one time, with and cotton shorts, for example ( I say for example - that's a pretty darn accurate description of my night time attire right there). There's something very Carrie Bradshaw about mixing a bit of vintage-esque glamour with the everyday, and I find it incredibly cheering.
I'm saving this little treasure for when I move back to my London flat post-finals and am looking forward to taking it away for a weekend in France. My boyfriend's family will think I think I'm Greta Garbo, but I don't much care. :)
