Dressing gown

Mar 23, 2009


Last week Henrik surprised me with this dressing gown that has been on my wish list for a while. To me it’s just the perfect dressing gown and I wear it almost all the time. I didn’t think I would ever find such a perfect dressing gown that wasn’t vintage.

Anyway, it came with two 10% off discount codes, and since I’m not planning on buying anything else from the site, Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers, I thought I’d give out the codes here on the blog. Just leave a comment on this post saying you want one, and I’ll randomly select two people who get the codes, around noon CET this Friday, March 27.

I saw Gunilla Pontén on the bus the other day. She’s a designer, my favourite 50s and 60s fashion model, and an all around glamourous person. She looked amazing in a black sequined beret, her signature dark bob and plum lipstick and a beautiful coat.

She was (and is I’d say) a bit of a fashion rebel and one of her designs became famous after she wore it to some kind of royal occasion in the 50s where it was thought to be inappropriate (it became a stamp a while ago).

I was too starstruck to say anything on the bus but it inspired me to post some scans from this issue of Veckorevyn, which contains an article about Gunilla’s clothes and home, and it’s my favourite article in all my vintage magazines.
