A kimono saved my life today. My mother - whom is a less than prompt texter - scooped me up for lunch at Petunia's Silver Jalapeño today unannounced and the gray crop and denim shorts I had on were less than striking. I needed a quick fix. That is when I reached for a kimono by Needle & Thread that had been hanging in my closet for years. I may have worn it twice, but it never really did anything special for me. However, after the recent rise of popularity of this particular type of item I thought it might be a good idea. Turns out, it was. The resturant was chilly, I was comfortable. My outfit prior was drab and boring, the kimono added a little flare (which I try never to leave home without). I added a little extra sparkle with some statement necklaces of my own design and - BAM - instant outfit.
The moral of this superhero story - I recommend you go buy a kimono.
Here are some more cool pictures of lovely ladies rocking out the kimono look that I find to be just right -
After my adventure with my new friend kimono today, I did some online shopping and found some great places to snag a few more. Check them out below -
