So for several weeks I had been eyeing this 1940's/50's lounge robe (Tag says: Evelyn Pearson lounging apparel) at my favorite thrift haunt. It's gorgeous light blue/green was fabric peeking out from the rack filled with 1970's polyester maxi dresses. I felt like vintage loungewear was something that had been missing in my wardrobe. I wear a lot of vintage clothing, but when it was time to relax all I had to put on were sweatpants. I finally couldn't take it any longer and brought this baby home with me. The fabric is in perfect condition. It is only missing it's button and original belt, but that doesn't bother me too much. I feel so glamorous in it. It's a little bit ridiculous that one could feel so fancy in a robe.
I pulled out my best journal that I received from my father in law. It is in a beautiful tapestry fabric case and it just seemed to pair perfectly with this robe. I must confess, my sister is more the writer in our family, but I can pretend I have writing talent, right? Yes. So a few days ago I made Sean take a some photos so that the beauty of this piece can truly be appreciated :)
Since I have come down with what the doctor called the "creepy crud" (basically that means that I am sick enough to write a note that says I can miss work, but not an illness that they can prescribe me anything for), I thought I would leave you with the type of thing I would LIKE to wear when I am sick, because right now I am definitely in my rattiest sweatpants drinking gallons of juice and hot chocolate.
Would you ever consider wearing vintage loungewear? Or is it too fussy for you?
Stay well my friends!
2 Corinthians 10:17
But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.
