Next I ordered the grey and white striped robes seen in the picture from Aerie. Normally I don't shop at Aerie, but they were having a huge blowout sale and I had a coupon/points from shopping at AE awhile back. Then, I had the robes monogrammed by a local embroidery shop.

To keep it all together I used a 12x12 scrapbook paper page protector, cut it in half and slid the letter and paint samples in.
