You know those trends that look ridiculously good on street style bloggers and models but absolutely ridiculous on us pleebs? That’s exactly how I felt about the robe trend. Yes, it looks amazing on Bella Hadid because she’s a 5’10 goddess, but I’m going to look like a crazy cat lady wearing her pajamas in public. When my personal shopper, a.k.a my mom, picked up this robe from Goodwill for me, I thought, “Not happening. Nope.” I was wrong. Very wrong.
This vintage robe from Goodwill could easily pass for the popular floral kimonos found at asos or Forever 21, but it was under $5. It is perfect for spring whether you want to dress it up over a little black dress like this one or over your favorite pair of cutoffs. I chose to pair this vintage robe over my favorite black tank, distressed Goodwill jeans, and these AMAZE Prada heels I snagged from Nordstrom Rack for $92! It made me feel a little sexy, a little sassy, and oh so stylish (the TRIFECTA)!! And did I mention robes are one size fits all?!
If you plan on venturing to your local Goodwill to find the perfect vintage robe for spring, look for a robe with a fun pattern. Steer clear of the “wrap” style robes. This style is not going to give you the straight edge kimono that you want. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t find the perfect robe on the first trip. Visit a couple of different Goodwill locations, and you will definitely find the hottest spring trend at a fraction of the cost! Tag me in your finds on Instagram (@goldwilldigger)!
