OK I know I love to be rude about the Toast catalogue - but ooooooh my djellaba has arrived!

And I love it! Soooo big and warm and soft and long and all-encompassing - loads of space for my pg bump too. It is total sofa-snuggling winter perfection. It is a bit pricey but I'm getting it for my birthday

Admittedly I look like some kind of medieval monk/hobbit hybrid and perhaps style and beauty isn't quite the place I should be with this but... there isn't an "ugly but snuggly" topic...

It does look as if it would be comfortable, but obi wan kenobi was what sprung to mind...

May the force of cosiness be with you...

brokenspacebar Wed 07-Oct-09 13:53:39

lol at the force of cosiness, I think we need an "ugly but snugly" topic too.

BecauseImWorthIt Wed 07-Oct-09 14:05:21

Ooh - that looks cosy!

I have a full length, fleecy dressing gown that my sister in law gave me. It's lovely. Except for the huge Winnie the Pooh applique on the front!

This looks much more 'grown up'.

yes very jedi

I had a pukka one from Marrakech but misguidedly generously gave it to a friend as a present

SausageRocket Wed 07-Oct-09 14:22:21

what the heck is that ?

LadyoftheBathtub Wed 07-Oct-09 14:28:39

Are you tempted sausage?

LadyoftheBathtub Wed 07-Oct-09 14:30:40

MrsB, but was your real one lined with brushed flannel?

MrsBadger Wed 07-Oct-09 15:03:43

no, it was one layer of heavy brushed cotton

like a pyjama dress


still, at least he appreciated it - he still wears it as a dressing gown and that was nearly ten years ago

LadyoftheBathtub Wed 07-Oct-09 15:11:46

Well at least you're a lovely generous friend.

Unlike me <guards djellaba jealously>

Oh. dear. lord.

LadyoftheBathtub Wed 07-Oct-09 16:29:12

Oh what hully. Spit it out!

Tortington Wed 07-Oct-09 16:29:40

jesus shit! how much is the stuff in there?

if i wanted my grannies housecoat - i'd ask her

and she;s dead

LadyoftheBathtub Wed 07-Oct-09 16:31:38

I know. This is why I've never bought one for myself. But actually I've spent more than that on stuff I don't end up wearing much, like dresses for weddings. I'll wear this every day.

hullygully Wed 07-Oct-09 16:32:21

You can make your own for a fraction of the price. Get a very large candlewick bedspread. Sew it together. Stand in it. Er, that's it.

LadyoftheBathtub Wed 07-Oct-09 16:33:57

Hmm but I would like the monster from the pale blue candlewick swamp, instead of... er... Yoda.

I've ordered 3 pairs of their gorgeous tights and have charcoal, teal and just waiting for the navy but out of stock. They really are the toastiest, cosiest, best quality woolly tights I have ever owned (should be at the price too shock!)

BloodRedTulips Wed 07-Oct-09 16:46:13

dear god please tell me someone double tapped the 9 key shock

Hullygully Wed 07-Oct-09 16:47:54
