I thought this duster was so cool when I saw it at the flea market ($4!). But then I hesisiated on it for... Wow, it has to be a few months now. Rather unheard of for Team Wear. I was afraid it might look like a crazy cat lady bathrobe at work.

But I gave it a go today, and I really, really loved it. Felt very cool swishing around my legs and billowing out when I walked fast.

Welcome home from the holding zone, cardigan!

    Nope, no crazy cat lady bathrobe here. Just awesomeness. So cool. 

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Im with Florence! Awesome, cool, stylish.. I LOVE IT!

  • MsMary replied 5 years ago

    This is fantastic.  I swear, Rae, you are getting more gorgeous by the minute!

  • Vicki replied 5 years ago

    Dust off that crazy cat lady in robe notion, Rae. You look awesome!

    Cats may be grabbing at you to play with the "longer length" IYKWIM, however, you look refined and elegant in this piece.

    Love it!

    YLF Rae!  That drapey cardigan does feel like a super woman in a good way!  Did I tell you how much I LOVE your handbag and how it goes with everything?  :)

  • peacechick replied 5 years ago

    You're making me miss the rust-colored duster I purged a few months back because you look so cool in yours!

  • Adelfa replied 5 years ago

    Thirty years ago I knew a woman who was a total computer nerd. Then she decided to become stylish, and she wore a duster. She looked amazing. Later--true story--she founded the Urban Decay line.

    Just to say, I think dusters are really sophisticated and you look awesome.

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    Wow, your gorgeous style constantly floors me. You look amazing!

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    Love the soft color and the drape of the cardi over the simple black underlayer. 
    Gotta love an outfit that moves when you do!

  • carambola replied 5 years ago

    Wow, I love this. I bet it looked phenomenal in motion.

  • Marley replied 5 years ago

    So, are you saying there's something wrong with crazy-cat-lady-bathrobe?  :-)
    (You look great!)

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Thanks, ladies - a relief to know it does not feel like a superhero cape but look like jammies. 

    I have been hideously sick all night and have to stay home today, so I am really sad about that, but YLF can always make me smile.

    My kind of sweater. Love it!

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    Very cool! Deborah has somehing similar, a  duster waistcoat, posted it not long ago!

  • Jude replied 5 years ago

    This is amazing! I'm in love with the whole look here (including the hair!), and seriously envious about your thrifting abilities...
    Sorry that you're sick, though :-( Feel better soon!

  • LACeleste replied 5 years ago

    Swoosh!  So cool.  Sorry you are sick today Rae.  

  • Sharon replied 5 years ago

    Another vote for cool. There's something a bit badass about a long topper flaring out slightly behind you as you walk. Much more Matrix than crazy cat lady.

  • Astrid replied 5 years ago

    Yes, very cool!

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    You look great - elegant but relaxed! (In other words, you look how I always think I'll look in long drapey cardigans, despite continuing evidence that they look totally cat-lady on me in reality.)

  • Paulette replied 5 years ago

    I like it very much.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Move love.  The duster adds a fresh playfulness to the all black.

  • gryffin replied 5 years ago

    Rae - Love this.  Slender column of black with elegant, flowy duster/cardi plus the fab bag.  You look graceful and refined - no PJ lady in sight!!  Hope you feel better!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Thanks, everyone! The pants are actually navy. :-)
