Out of the several kimonos I’ve amassed, this one is my favorite. It’s so vintage feeling, from the faded background color to the pattern. I got it in Tel Aviv in November, at this super cool store called Plazmalab. I love how the store describes itself as a “collection of dreamers”. Check it out if you go! I picked up a bunch of gems from there, all very unique pieces.
I like wearing a kimono as a layering piece as outerwear. Here, though, it was the top itself. I felt like Mrs Roper from Three’s Company🤣. I wore it over this fine mesh, pearl detailed collar that I bought at a high end consignment shop where I live. It’s called Mint, I’ve mentioned it before. I bought it thinking it’d be so perfect under a black blazer. It’s such pretty detailing underneath any open top. Glamorous loungewear is so 60’s. It is indeed nice to have something comfortable and chic to wear while entertaining. I wouldn’t waste this on myself alone, but I have to be in loose clothing when I have guests, or I get sweaty and irritated. One of my fave winter looks was this kimono over black leather pants and a black turtleneck, with beat up motorcycle boots. For summer I’ll use it as a jacket on a cool night. Huge kimono sleeves make me feel like a samurai 🥋. Now I’ll just have to get a Honzu sword, like Uma in Kill Bill. Not that I’d have a clue what to do with it😏.
