Pursuit of Fashion and Vintage Wear

B__L0228I’m embracing these fall tones for as long as possible. The reds, yellows, tans, blacks, an oranges just look so beautiful together. To me, this kimono is perfectly colored for fall. I recently inherited some vintage clothing from my grandmother and was fortunate to have found this gorgeous kimono. Kimonos are very much in right now, so I figured I could get some great use out of it.

This is one of my favorite pieces in my closet, and its even more special because it belonged to my grandmother. I love knowing that there is history hidden within this garment that goes way beyond my lifespan. (That’s the history nerd speaking there.)

This kind of layering is unique, and can create a really elevated look. I chose to make the kimono a little dressier by pairing it with a simple black strapless dress, a brown belt, and wedges. It also can be very casually outfitted, perhaps with shorts, a white tank, and some flats. Kimonos are pretty versatile pieces to work with. Definitely a must have item for this season. B__L0323All photography done by Catherine Coons
