Faux Fur Robe

This looks like a gorgeous faux fur robe, but the site has two versions of it in the photos. It is a small difference that could make a big difference if you ordered it expecting the more faux fur looking one and got the less fur looking robe instead.

This is the version of faux fur I like. It doesn’t look like something from a well manicured pet. This is just a bit scruffy looking.

 

I Bought a New Housecoat

Most sites seem to call them robes. I’ve always called them housecoats. I’ve been looking for about a week for just what I wanted – full length, big size, long sleeves, no tie in front, and a nice comfortable, warm, wearable sort of fabric. I found this on Amazon tonight. I had to send it to my Mom in Florida (for the winter) because they don’t ship to Canada. But, it should get there before she is driving back. Sadly, shopping online means you have to guessimate and hope for the best. However, shopping store by store is a lot more time consuming and less likely to turn up results (unless you’re not at all picky). I’m not especially picky but, in this case, I did know just what I wanted. I wasn’t thinking white, but I can adapt that much.

Full Length Red Robe

I found this on Amazon, only a small size. I looked for it online and found more of them on Bath & Robes. Still not the size I was looking for, being bigger so I don’t have any part of it tight fitting no matter what I end up doing while wearing it. I want something soft, comfortable, red and without a tie up in front. This was the best I found. I will just keep looking. But… isn’t it nice!

Collecting Vintage Cats Eye Spectacles

I don’t collect them, other than those I have bought to wear over the years. But, I’m sure somewhere there are spectacle collectors, especially for vintage cat’s eye glasses. They are fairly unique and decorative looking.

I noticed these today. I was actually looking for glasses to help with reading the computer screen. Not for glare. Reading glasses won’t do either. I tried a few generic glasses at the pharmacy, they are made for people with positive strength vision. I don’t remember my exact numbers, but they are in the negative, meaning I am near sighted/ short sighted. Reading glasses don’t help. My current glasses don’t help much either. I read the computer screen with my head tipped way back so I can use the bifocals to read the screen. Not helpful and my neck gets stiff. Probably good exercise for my chin and neck. But, frustrating.

Vintage Faux Fur Long Coat Made in Canada

Even the buttons look like trilliums. It’s a size 2X. Selling for less than $100 (counting the shipping) from a shop on Etsy.

But, I really don’t need another coat. Plus, 2X probably wouldn’t fit, a bit too tight. What a treasure for someone else to find though.

This is a top quality, thick, cosy and warm faux mink coat, jet black. The coat fastens with 5 pretty floral buttons, and each wide sleeve has a half belt a couple inches from the end, decorated with a smaller matching button. The coat is lined with glossy black satin and is in pristine condition.

Pierced for Frameless Eyeglasses

It is a good idea. An option for people who don’t want to wear contact lenses on their eyeball but don’t like the frames of eyeglasses on their face either. Still, I feel squicked at the idea of having my face (other than ear lobes) pierced. So, as good as it could be for some people… I won’t be trading in my eyeglasses, with frames.
