This kimono has been a part of my life for a very loooong time.
I love the design on the trim and lapel and the price, Kshs. 50 ($0.5) definitely contributed to my decision on whether I was taking it home or not.
At the time, I liked the idea of chopping it and making a different outfit out of the beautiful fabric. So, as I thought of the design of the outfit I’d make, I kept wearing it at home (and randomly to my local supermarket) as it was.
The more people saw it and complimented me on it (read: tried to steal it), the more I was convinced to leave it as it is. Anyway, I recently challenged myself to wear it outdoors and this was the result!
