1930s Lounging Robe in peach by What Katie Did.
If you’ve seen period dramas the likes of Allied, Peaky Blinders, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, Ratched, Downton Abbey, Hollywood and Lovecraft Country and thought it would be fun to be able to wear vintage style lingerie and boudoir pieces like the characters on screen – well, you might want to go check out UK brand What Katie Did. Because you were probably looking at their work, and you absolutely can saunter around dressed like a screen siren from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
This 1930s style lounging robe is so handy for throwing over my underpinnings while I put the finishing touches on hair and makeup. It’s incredibly luxurious and lightweight, with glamorous butterfly sleeves in a slinky peach satin that matches a range of What Katie Did undergarments including their CC09 reproduction 1940s range, french knickers, suspender belts, bras and shapewear. To my eye, the colour is more of a beautiful pearl than peach, which I prefer. It is unlined and a little sheer, but not as sheer as it appears in these images (which were taken while I was lighting and set dressing a different shoot, apologies for the crushed state of it!).
Wearing this robe as I move through the house in the morning making tea, brushing out my hair at the vanity, preparing to head out into the world (when we can … ) makes me feel confident and comfortable in myself. Elegant underpinnings and boudoir wear is a nice ritual in self care, and I’m so glad I treated myself to a small collection of What Katie Did reproduction pieces. I absolutely recommend treating yourself to some fun and glamorous What Katie Did goodies to help you feel every inch as fabulous as your favourite fictional style icon from Pennyworth, American Horror Story, Agent Carter, Call The Midwife … honestly the list just goes on.
