Dressing-gowns

I have always wanted one.

I like to get up in the morning and take it easy. I like to lounge around, have breakfast and seat on the sofa, while listening to the news and messing around on the computer.

Now, I don’t know you but, as soon as it starts being a little chilly, I need to wear something over my pyjamas. I have always been fascinated by those films where the men (I know, man, not woman, a little weird!) wear fantastic tartan, woollen, elegant, chic, warm (enough?), dressing-gowns! I do think a person should always look nice and tidy, even at home and even in their PJs, in fact, more so in those situations! One already isn’t at his/her best, hair all over the place, no make up, etc. etc. Which means one must try at least with the clothes. And anyway, I reckon a gorgeous dressing gown, would make you feel very chic and beautiful…

I have wanted one all my adult life, but, I haven’t got one yet!!!! That’s because it’s terribly hard to find something half decent. And I actually want a well cut dressing gown and it must be made in a very good fabric. I am not making compromises on this one! (well, I suppose a rarely do when it comes to clothes…).

I have found a site, where it says they actually make it by hand and, for what I can see, the gown looks nice. Here it is:

I love the colour too. They have others, but this is the one I prefer. I haven’t ordered it yet though…I have doubts…you can’t see the shape of it properly, nor the length, or the fabric for that matter! It costs quite a bit and, most important thing is, you can’t return it.

If anybody knows of where else I could look, please let me know. I am considering having made by a local dress maker too.

“All dark” look

I was watching an episode of my current series of choice (I do tend to stick to one and see it through to the end of it), when, as often happens, I got distracted by clothes….

She was wearing an all dark look. The outfit not being special, it was a simple jacket, a shirt, trousers and ballerinas. But that’s not the point. The point was the contrast between the all dark clothes and her blond hair! That looked magnificent!! So, in order to make it work, you need to be blond really…ah ah ah! Perhaps grey hair would make a pass too here.

Here is my proposal:

Some might find it too simple, I simply find it very chic.

All from Massimo Dutti, apart from the shoes.
