KIMONO LOVE – LIVING SILK

I’m loving everything long line at the moment – I think this maybe because I’m still yet to recover from the over indulgence that was Christmas and Easter.

I love how they can elongate the body and skim (or hide) the thighs.

As a vertically challenged gal a long line kimono, jacket or duster can be difficult to wear.They can tend to overwhelm me and sometimes finish too close to the ground for my liking.

The perfect long line kimono or jacket is one that isn’t too bulky and finishes at the knee or just below and is fitted around my arms.

So imagine my delight when Living Silk sent me this stunning Black Lace Kimono – it definitely ticked all the boxes.

  • Black √
  • Fitted √
  • Lace √
  • Length √
  • Its Beautiful √

I love well made quality clothes and this kimono definitely falls into this category. And it has been just been reduced to $79.00 another √. Now if black isn’t your colour (I have meet very few women who don’t love black but…) it also comes in Silver and Amethyst both also reduced to $79.00.

Now another reason why I love this kimono (if I need anymore) is that I have quite an eclectic style and I love to mix it up and this kimono is perfect to mix it up.

I’m very much guided by feelings – I may have a kick arse outfit picked out to wear the night before but if I get up in the morning and I’m not feeling it I will completely disregard that kick arse outfit for something completely different.

What I love about this kimono is that it caters for these mood swings from my boho tendencies and to that classic more put together style.

I’ve styled this lace kimono below to cater for both of my mood swings and I honestly can’t decide which one I love more. Let’s just see what side of the bed I wake up on tomorrow as to what one I wear.

Which outfit do you love the best – the all black Classic look or the distressed jeans Boho look?

L~ F
  • I love all black looks so sleek

  • For the everyday I love the boho distressed jeans look.

    Longline kimonos are a favourite look of mine! This black lace one is stunning!!

  • Both are great – I can see the all black being for night time shenanigans, while the other to me is more or a day outfit. How gorgeous is that kimono? Love that it’s quite fitted 🙂

    • Yes that is what I loved about it – its like a tailored kimono, if that is such a thing. But its such a flattering shape. And I must wear it to get up to some shenanigans 😜

  • I’m that girl who doesn’t love black – but I do have quite a few black pieces in my wardrobe. To make the cut, they have to be FABULOUS and I think this piece would tick all my boxes too! Love it dressed up and dressed down on your xx

    • This piece is definitely fabulous so makes the cut but the amethyst is quite stunning this may suit your love of colour. But for me I have to stop myself buying too much black

  • I love all of the colours, but I think the black is the most versatile. It works dressed up or down. I love the all black look on you. Stunning!

    • I always love an all black look – I think it can take you anywhere. This kimono really is versatile and perfect for our warm autumn weather

  • I love both outfits! The kimono looks beautiful and it’s not often you see one that’s such a lovely fitted cut.

    • That’s what I love about it – so often kimonos are over sized and I feel like I’m drowning in them. This one has just the right amount fit and flow

  • As I said on IG those black pants are the bees knees – but who can go past the kimono with our favourite jeans? NOT ME…and you’re wearing my favourite leopard booties too. Don’t think I told you they had sold out in my size when I tried to get them. Still gutted.
    You look as gorgeous as ever xxx

    • I knew the booties would sell out – they are just too gorgeous. Thankfully they came out when it was my birthday so I knew exactly what to ask for. Are you feeling back to normal after you little excursion yesterday

      • Much better today thanks darling, although I’m banned from driving for 24 hours because of the anaesthetic…ordering clothes online is so much fun though! 😉 😉 xx
