Do you ever have those moments in your closet when you think you have nothing to wear?  Of course this is a rhetorical question because when you are a Decades shopper, you have built up a wardrobe of staples and eccentricities; flashy ensembles and clothes to wear in an audience with the Pope; 11th hour black tie gowns and chic day looks.  We keep you dressed 24-7.  With runways filled with 1920s influences as well as Downton Abbey references, I love the idea of just throwing on a 1920s robe when you just don't know what to wear.  This apricot burnout velvet robe with scallop cuffs on the sleeve and satin trim, it the perfect answer when you just can't make a decision.  It will work over a tank and jeans or shorts and a shell.  Throw it over a drop waist dress for a more retro look.  Entertain at home with the robe and a slip for the perfect pajama party look.  As a garment that is nearly 100 years old, there are some stresses in the fabric, but that can be expected when you are wearing history and going to be history in the making, too.

Peach burn out velvet robe, c. 1920s.  One size SOLD
