Do your vacay dreams involve the galaxy? Take a tip from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and wave your towel! May 25 is Towel Day - celebrating Douglas Adams' wacky travel guide. (It's super fun pool reading!)
Don't want to carry a towel? Need hands free for shopping! We've got the perfect attire - a vintage lounge dress or robe made from . . . drumroll. . . towels! Towel dresses were a huge trend in the sixties and seventies - one I think we should bring back.
Gals stitched cute bath robes, jackets and lounge dresses from avocado, harvest gold, pink, towels to stay cute cool and cozy (while simultaneously drying off!) all summer! There's even a pattern for that, Simplicity Jiffy 6351
But you know who is such a diy klutz, I decided to surf etsy and ebay for pre made vintage models. And score! Here are a few faves - instagram with me, I'll post a pic of the one I choose!
