KIMONO LOVE






Kimono collection ///
Spell Designs Sugar Fox tassel kimono
Winter Kate Devi bed jacket (2013)
Zara Home cotton kimono
Winter Kate Himalaya kimono
Winter Kate Jasmine kimono with Frankie feather print

Seriously, I do have a big crush on kimonos. Obviously, most of my pieces are from Nicole Richie's Winter Kate line. I love their wearable cut and the delicate and high quality silk they are made of. The pink one by Spell Designs is also a killer and a quality buy too. Same goes for the cotton kimono from Zara Home that I actually only wear at home. Bought it after I spotted it in Barca and it really does have the boho vibe that I love.

FOXY LADY!










Wearing ///
Spell Designs Cowgirl Tassel jacket
Object Indian cotton inspired blouse
All Saints Ashby skinnies (2013)
Anthropologie hat, customized with Liberty Hera print scarf (view post about the DIY here)
Sam Edelman Pretty boots (2013)
Topshop Folksy bag
The 2 Bandits and Navajo jewelry

Here I am back with an indoor outfit post that I quite like a lot! I took this shots just before we went to our weekly grocery shopping and this outfit composition happened spontaneously. I quite love it a lot as it really does have the Jimi Hendrix vibe. Jimi owned a similar leather jacket and the hat is very Hendrix too. Same goes for the little Topshop purse that is so Woodstock!

THE RE-WEARER

Never change a working system!
When it comes to my fave combos, this might be true. As much as I love changing a look with different hats, boots or bags, I love re-wearing my fave combos. These I wore in spring this year and I really can see me wearing these combos again just as they are. Round sunnies and hats are definitely on the agenda for autumn!

NEW IN: WINTER KATE DRESSES

New in ///
Winter Kate Camilla dress
Winter Kate Emma dress

Aren't these two real beauties?!

Well, last week was really tough for me - not only my peacock feather hat was damaged (read about my DIY fix here - I love the new version!), but also my Adini Indian cotton dress (worn here for Robert Plant concert in Dresden) showed more and more rips and now it's unwearable. It is hand painted (the black flowers painted on the pink block print) and the paint is so heavy that the fine gauze material showed rips, holes and stains that could't be fixed.

A week ago, I ordered a pink blouse I showed you in my last outfit post (here) and it was sold to me as vintage - but it actually was a modern piece. I got a reasonable refund from the seller - and actually, after the gauze dress wasn't repairable, I'm happy about my modern blouse.

I do love the softness of Indian cotton, but due to hand painted details and bibs the soft gauze often can't stand these heavy details. The blouse and the Winter Kate dresses are for sure not block printed by hand, but the fabrics are soft too and seem to last much longer. Also, I do love the print and the whole vintage inspired design of the Winter Kate frocks. Same goes for my blouse.

As much as I love buying the original pieces - for a regular wear these modern ones are the better choice for me. I'll definitely will enjoy both dresses. Love the pink and blue shades of them so much and Winter Kate never lets me down. Due to the fact the brand not longer exists, they actually are vintage, aren't they?! ;)))

PRINTS ALL OVER














Wearing ///
Winter Kate Jasmine kimono with Frankie feather print
Object Indian block print inspired tunic top
Mother The Lantern jeans with block print
Acne Alma boots
Antik Batik bag
Topshop feather hat

My love for prints is well known to my regular blog readers, so this #sharingstyle with the theme prints was tough. I don't have a particular fave print (expect liberty prints and the Celia Birtwell mystic Daisies print shown here), so I thought it is clever to wear prints all over!

The feather printed kimono is really an amazing piece that I love to wear. Same goes for Indian block prints. The blouse isn't an original, but very well made and also the pants feature a blog print inspired design. Pinks for autumn instead of wearing dark colors? - Yes please!
