Snuggle Up In A Nice Warm Robe

This lovely lady has the right idea, a nice warm robe in red for Christmas:

These robes would have made nice gifts back in 1950, from Family Circle Magazine:

The next four pictures are from an I. Magnin catalog. There isn't a date, but I'm guessing maybe late 60's or early 70's?. The first gorgeous robe was priced at $180! Wow. "White rayon gabardine yoked and scrolled with rayon velvet. Designed by Rizkallah for Malcolm Starr International". Fancy:
I actually received a red velour robe very similar to the one below back in the mid 70's. I loved it. I also got a red and white candy-cane-striped flannel nightgown and some red furry slippers to go with it. I was all set! The one below, by "Bill Tice for Royal" $60:

"Snuggle her into a deep pile robe of Orlon acrylic/cotton lined with nylon. In Orange Sherbet. From Kamore". This one would have only set you back $50:

These matching quilted robes and gowns for mothers and their daughters were much less expensive, running only from nine to 23 dollars, from Loungees:

I decided this white-as-snow chenille zip-up robe I found earlier this month at a thrift store would be just perfect for my (I'm-only-dreaming-of-a-White) Christmas morning tomorrow. And it didn't cost me anywhere near as much as any of those!

Cozy comfort...perfect, with the addition of a little Christmas tree:

Please sleep tight and have a Silent Night on this Christmas Eve!

I've always loved chenille robes but have never had one. Maybe Santa will bring me one. Merry Christmas!

A new robe is still one of the best gifts of all! My husband used to give me one every year until I had to tell him I had more than I could ever wear out! Have a very Merry Christmas, Heidi and Lori! Love, Twyla

nice robe heidi - john used to get me robes all the time and then i had too many and now i don't really have one. i like your white one - it is more of a 'lounger' - which is what a retired lady on the farm needs. have a great christmas eve - i bet your house looks great!

That robe looks so wonderfully cozy, and that cute pin is the perfect Christmas accessory for it! You've just gotta' love a good cozy robe!

Best wishes for a wonderful Christmas!


PS: I'm in love with that tree in the background! Soooo pretty!

Imagine paying the equivalent of at least $500 in today's money for a bathrobe. I am aware that I. Magnin is one of those stores where the typical shopper doesn't bother to ask the price.

Merry Christmas!
