rainy days, red kimonos

I've feel like I’ve been on a perpetual search for a vintage kimono since the dawn of time but I am so picky that I've managed to pass up (and sometimes later regret) many a contender.  When I spotted the little red and white print in a miscellaneous rack at a local vintage store I was immediately drawn to it - and once I realized it was a Kimono I was smitten!

I wore it for the first time as a dress of sorts to "the Brits" gig earlier this week and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Of course, it was nighttime and a little chilly out so I decided to take some photos inside for a change...

I just recently did an outfit post wearing a cotton red kimono. I wanted to just bust out my K jacket collection (I have a bunch) and wear it non-traditionally, anyhoo....we look quite different, but I flatter myself to think you and I were inspired by the same idea.

Great little blog you got, by the way, in case you didn't know it.

Have a great weekend.
