KIMONO REMIX









I have previously styled this kimono in a look-book here and in a dressy look here. However for today I went for a more casual take on this item. I opted for my blue maxi skirt since I wanted to match the volume of the kimono as a top with the volume of the skirt. I then cinched in my waist with this belt which I wore backwards. Finally I opted for my collar necklace for a statement.

I rarely wear my braids down but this time I did and could not help playing with them. For those wondering I do my own  braids since its quite expensive over here. While it may be time consuming, I am quite free at the moment so I'd rather not spend the money. It took me about 10 hours to complete this hair and I used about three packs of expression braiding hair.

Kimono: Cotton On // Skirt: Gift // Necklace: Pull & Bear // Sandals: Workshop // Belt: Stradivarius // Bag: Street Market

  6. I love the brightness of the skirt, it looks great with the kimono. Good job with your hair, I also do mine and it's much simpler (and cheaper) since you can't blame anyone if anything goes wrong, it does take a while though :/
