Mon Bleu!

Vintage Silk Chiffon Robe Refined and lady-like, a silk dressing gown is required for any serious vintage lingerie collection. Dollface dames of the 1930s applied various paints and potions while seated at their vanities in preparation for a glamorous evening out. The proper attire was required for said activity and this fine crepe de chine version is an exquisite example from that era; hand-stitched diamond smocking at the bodice and cuff are the star attractions. Delicate embroidered flowers at the scalloped neckline, a gentle scarf-rolled hem, silk covered buttons and the most beautifulest bias draping round out the deets. I'm quite enamoured, a worthy addition to the vintage wardrobe, yes? ($45)
