Kimono's are one of the prettiest article's of clothing one can own. I remember when I saw my first kimono on a museum trip when I was younger. It was red with gold cherry blossoms, it was magnificent. It also prompted me to add Japan to my travel list so I can get one of my very own. Here is it some time later, and I have not been to Japan (yet), but I did find a kimono that was swoon worthy sans a 16 hour flight.
Modamix has been a brand that I admire. I met the wonderful ladies of Moda last year at Curvy Con. Since then there has not been a collection they drop that I do not own a piece of. From their late Spring collection, they had this beautiful printed kimono called Daphne. It's scuba (my favorite), and has a tie belt that can cinch in your waist to have you nice and snatched.
Once I had the kimono, I was thinking about what would be the best thing to pair it with. My first choice was a pair of jeans, but I wanted to switch it up and pull out my scuba pencil skirt. If you are a fan of a pencil skirt, then definitely give this scuba version a try from Eloquii. I love the way scuba holds you in, but it still has enough stretch to move with you. A good flirty shoe brings the entire look together, and these platform sandals called the Peppa from Vince Camuto were perfect. Suede shoes are a weakness of mine, and the turquoise color brought out the colors in the kimono. The platform makes them easy to walk in, due to the one inch platform. I picked these up on sale, and they have not let me down. All that was left was my trusty white clutch, and I'm ready for some cocktails. Muah!!
