"A Warm, Tailored Robe"

"For the morning you need a warm, tailored robe, slim in cut and ankle-length. I think this length is best because short robes expose the unattractive sight of a rumpled nightie or pajama bottoms--or bare white legs--protruding underneath."

--Anne Fogarty, Wife Dressing: The Fine Art of Being a Well-Dressed Wife

Very inspiring.
Umm, maybe too much so. My Number's Man is forever on my case about my dowdy red plaid floor lenght robe I might just walk outside in from time to time. *hangs head in shame*
Maybe I need to go shopping this weekend. :)
I'm sure your robe(s) are perfection, you crafty mama!

Hello Anna! I read your posts every day, and am always so happy to see the newest words and pictures. You are truly inspiring. Thank you for your virtuous spirit that shines through.

And I would like to invite you to enter a drawing, if I'm not overstepping my bounds. =) My mom is having a lovely apron give-away at ladyfarmerparables dot blogspot dot com. She would love the visit!

That sounds like a really interesting book; I've never even heard of it before.
