Help me find a dressing gown - losing the will to live!
Not the most exciting purchase I know! I own a fluffy cosy lovely M&S dressing gown, perfect for our cold house. But I'm getting married soon, so was looking for a much lighter dressing gown that will do double duty as a pre-putting-on-dress wrap, plus I can take on my honeymoon. I therefore am looking for the following:
Sits just above the knee Not see-through, but not fluffy/bulky/overly warm With normal length sleeves, possibly 3/4 length but not kimono Not grey in colour! Cotton or other natural fibre
I'm actually thinking something like this dress (I love all Icebreaker stuff) which I may end up getting; but my H2B thinks merino will be too warm for our honeymoon, which is tropical.
I've looked in various stores locally as well as M&S, JL's, notonthehighstreet.com, Gap etc and coming up blank.
Dressing gown, Honeymoon??? I'm guessing I took and didn't wear one ancient night shirt. But DH and I had spent 2 years sharing a single bead in his bed sit and at my parents and a double air mattress in my student digs that night wear didn't really figure in our relationship.
