Crimson Kimono

This week's 'special' of my #inkstyling_3ways is a vintage kimono brought to me by my friend Zuki, who is almost my own personal stylist, because she is my voice of reason when it comes to purchases and simply has a great taste.


A young woman stepping forward against the wall. She is smiling, wearing a burgundy kimono with a geometric pattern, tied with a wide brown belt and layered with a velvet burgundy pencil skirt. She is wearing pointed burgundy leather court shoes.

The first look I was inspired by last week, i.e. turning a jacket into a dresses. I paired the kimono with a velvet skirt and tied it with a wide belt. Belts are awesome at turning various items of clothing into something a bit different and according to Vogue Feb issue - wide belts are in.

Second look was with my favourite turtle neck from Uniqlo and the same skirt (American Apparel). Bag, shoes and necklace are #oldceline the big hoop earrings are from Hardware Vintage in Topshop (it's an awesome spot for both cheap and a bit more expensive designer costume jewellery pieces).


Small hoops top to bottom: Maria Tash and Maria Black. Rings left to right: Joomi Lim, Shaun Leane and Rachel Entwistle.

The final look was with corduroy tampered trousers from & Other Stories, turtle neck (I told you I love it) from Uniqlo, bag Chanel, shoes #oldceline. The quill earrings and necklace are by Shaun Leane.


Jewellery layers need a separate paragraph. From left to right: bracelet Shaun Leane, rings: Rachel Entwistle, Kasun, Shaun Leane. Rings on the other hand are both Shaun Leane. When it comes to jewellery I don't really have any rules. The more the better.
