Lady kimono11:00 AM
The girl obsessed with kimonos. That's my new name. When oriental motifs started being trend again, you can't even imagine how happy I was. I don't know, Asian culture has always fascinated me, and I'm a real freak when talking about their fabrics, awesome patterns, typical clothing and so on.
When I discovered Aupie, a new fashion online store, and saw this loose blouse full of flowers, which actually looks like a kimono, I couldn't help and ordered it. No matter how much I had to wait until it arrived... I just couldn't wait to wear it and show you a nice, remastered and trendy way to wear a kimono!
The blouse is made from chiffon, and it's lined so it's pretty warm (I can wear it on winter, yay!). The seams are strong, the size just perfect as it's my usual (M, always M) and the color is as bright and playful as it looks on the pictures. I think it's a really versatile piece: you can wear it with jeans and your favorite flats to go to class, or with a dress like I did, for a more formal outfit on this terrace for a snack. Garments you can use on lots of combinations and in different outfits are those I'm always looking for. They key is to be able to wear it a lot, but achieve totally different looks.
You know I always want to introduce you new brands and stores, online or offline. Style doesn't have to be expensive, and it's always about mixing clothes and pieces on a right way. I think Aupie reaches that, and has a nice collection of inexpensive and chic clothing, also with a great quality. I would never accept sponsoring a brand or store whose products I didn't like, and of course which I thought you wouldn't like as well.
So... Have you ever worn a kimono? Did you know about this new fashion online store? Would you buy something from there? Do you have any versatile garment on your wardrobe?
