I am a sucker for lovely robes, and am in need of another one (or two!). The trick is that I wear them regularly, so I always look for ones that aren't in perfect condition/are well-worn. I prefer an all silk robe with sleeves (puffed or long) and a sash. A front zipper is a major plus; my favorite robe I own is a zip-front silk floral print Saybury gown from the 30's. Quilted or lace details are always wonderful. As I said, I'm particularly interested in gowns that have been lovingly worn. Thanks so much, and I'm happy to post pics of my favorite robe if that helps!
