wearable blankets

Embrace your evening at home – wrap yourself in warmth, softness, and comfort.

We are spending almost every evening at home and winter is coming. An ASE subscriber tells me that as the days get short and the temperature drops, one of her evening pleasures is to get out of her athleisure workwear and slip into a plush caftan.  Another friend came to water aerobics this morning (the air temp  was 37 degrees, but the water was warm) dressed in a Comfy Teddy Bear Fleece with a hood.  Maybe we all can use one wooly, soft, cozy, fleecy clothing item this winter.  It is the ‘comfort food equivalent’ for your wardrobe.  These might make great gifts.
