When I sold my family house 3 years ago, I purged the majority of my belongings, the most difficult of which was a library, filled with books (yes real hard and soft cover books) that I had collected over many years. Since the head to toe bookshelves that engulfed that room was a major influence on why I purchased that house, the elimination of its contents was a knotty task for me. Given the nomadic life on which I was unknowingly about to embark, the dissolution of that weighty collection was probably a good thing. I kept less than 10, each a particular tome of sustenance for my psyche. The most important for me: Honey and Salt by Carl Sandburg. In its namesake verse, Sandburg uses the visual similarity and actual dichotomy of these two elements to expound on the intellect and emotion existing in a truly meaningful relationship.
Here is why these extraordinary lyrics surfaced when I saw this Tea Cozy sleepshirt layered under the Cocoon wrap robe at the Skin showroom in NYC. The juxtaposition of the 100% light Pima cotton gauze nightshirt with the plush poly Pima lined bathrobe, although completely different in substance, seemed perfectly matched. Available in XS – XL, these styles, when nested together, are a cozy sanctuary for any woman craving rest. A highly articulate assemblage of eloquent fabrics and sophisticated form, the Skin brand continues its signature creation of poetic loungewear.
