Vintage dressing gowns form the backbone of my collection. There is nothing so glamorous and relaxing as having these to swan about in after work.

Pieces from the late 1930s through to the mid 1970s all have a home with me. Satins, silks, velvets, cottons and yes, even pretty polyester have their placeĀ in my wardrobe. You’ve seen my latest green velveteen find, so today is another great op shop discovery that is perfect for warm spring afternoons. Like good lingerie, good robes or dressing gowns, can transform the everyday into something very special. The feeling of slipping into something floaty or frilly, soft and feathered or long and silky after a hard day is simply transcendent. This is where that wonderful feeling of “feeling sexy” comes from; from inside. When you treat yourself like someone special, just for you and no one else, it springs from within and your mood lifts to meet it.

  1. Hello Candice!
    As always (but it’s never mentioned enough): you look dazzling! Your hair has grown; and I’ve been gone for some time.. well, not truly “gone”; but more: “summertime, work, sress, cycling” way of life. Now I’m here – and this place (this blog) looks amazing.
    I must ask:
    On the last photo, you’re standing next to a table, and there’s an imabe behind you (or is it a picture?). I absolutely adore it – caould you tell me what is is?
    Thank you!
