Rogue Robe


Whilst browsing Etsy for the perfect piece of embroidered salmon (see previous post), I came across this adorable little bird, and just knew he'd sit prettily upon my bouffant. The postman's face when I opened the door to him looking like this was priceless....I'm hoping it was silent admiration not apprehension that came over him. Mine may not be as impressive as Natasha Poly's creation, but she had Dior's budget and creative talent on her side, plus mine is way more practical!
Anyway, the point of this post is not the little guy in my hair, but my new (old) robe. I've been looking for an embroidered silk or satin house robe/kimono type thing for a while now. Me being me, I wanted a mega authentic, heavily embroidered, tasselled, turn-of-the-century one, but those are both hard to find and way more expensive than later examples.

^Pretty huh? In the end I found a reasonably priced 1940's robe, with just enough embroidery to keep me happy (for now). The shoes I'm wearing are a fairly recent purchase, again in the ever elusive shade of salmon I crave. The website described them as orange, but they really are a vibrant pinky peach colour, like a neon flesh tone. Lovely!
p.s. I didn't actually leave the house in this 'outfit', rather I just elegantly lounged around the house. Although....I am tempted to wear the robe outside, it'd be difficult to make it not look like I'm in my pyjamas though. Hmmm

good evening dudes. I'm actually into shoes and I have been searching as far as something that singular brand. The prices as regards the velcros are about 240 bucks on every site. But finally I base this site selling them for the benefit of half price. I exceptionally love those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will definetly purchase these. what is your opinion?

Stunning, absolument! I don't suppose you'd consider putting together a brief tutorial for the bouffant, would you? Ah, well.
Never hurts to ask :)
