It's time. I need to burn my used and abused frumpy fleece robe and jump into the world of sophisticated vintage loungewear. That's right, no more herbal tea bags, it's eggnog and champagne cocktail time.
The question is, can I find a replacement that meets all the requirements? Lightweight yet warm, not too precious or bulky, calf length, tie waist, comes with a dog.
Etsy's overwhelmingly amazing selection of vintage robes is where to start. Beautiful kimono robes, terry cloth poolside robes, silky playboy mansion robes, quilted grandma robes...the offerings are endless. You really must get specific in the search field to arrive at a more manageable list of results. A few of my top picks so far.
If you find yourself down the same rabbit hole of loungewear on Etsy, you may very well run into the red robe and green pajamas I have listed. Both are 1960s, mint condition, and lightweight, which would be perfect for an overly crowded, overly heated holiday on the top bunk in grandma's house after too much eggnog.
