Personal Shopper: Robes for Stacy

Says Stacy: "So I have now built a beautiful bathroom in the basement of my house, unfortunately I don't really want my neighbors to happen to see me in my Vicky's therefore I would like to request your assistance, as a longtime follower of Outblush I know you will help me find an awesome Kimono style robe to prance around in . . . as for the price, I would like something around $50, Thanks a million! Stacy in her Skivvies! "

Marian here. It's nice to know that you can always move on to curtains if the robe request doesn't quite work out for you, but I'll still take a whack at it!

If the kimono style is what you're looking for, my first suggestion would be to go to the source. The less formal equivalent of a kimono is the cotton 1) yukata, and the pretty pink one shown here (on sale for $50) can be shipped anywhere in the world from Japan. If you're feeling a little more daring, a genuine 2) vintage montsuki kimono of black silk can be yours too, for only $28. (Yup, originally male garb.)

If you were secretly hoping for something a little less authentic and a little more shiny, not to worry. Grab yourself a 3) knee-length reversible patterned robe like this one ($35). We went with green, but there are a ton of colors to choose from. This lace-trimmed 4) long satin shawl collar robe is also available in most of a rainbow, and depending on what your favorite color is, you could get yourself a bargain: while the basic price is $32, select shades are on sale for $25 and for $20. The list winds up with the 5) Natori animal sculpture robe ($39). If you end up deciding that you'd like your new robe to be a little bit cuddly, rather than slippery, it's a plush textured option.

Keep in touch, Stacy - and tell your nosy neighbors to read Outblush!
