Gotta love eBay and gotta love it when the people you buy from get it right. I’ve had a few issues in the past with buying clothes, but since this year it’s all about kaftans and kimonos, I have managed to find amazing kimonos without a hassle.
First up is this stunningly gorgeous Peace Angel kimono for $44.89, dripping in pink roses and fringing. It’s light, sheer and oh so amazing. I’m not sure if I’ll even wear it as I’d worry every second about hitching it. My pants are also new from Millers for $15.
Next up is this china blue kimono with white fringing. It’s from a label called White Mark couture collection and came in for $37.95.
Keeping with the blue theme, I found this gorgeous floral kimono for $35. It has white pom poms and is a light cotton fabric. Excuse the wrinkles, it’s not been worn yet.
Onto green. I bought this amazing minty floral kimono for $41.17. With matching mint fringing it’s from a label called Urban Mist. It’s on the larger size which is good.
This deep mint and red floral kimono came in at $10.58. It’s on the smaller size and the fringing was a little off sided, but I managed to fix it. Not all kimonos need to do up or meet in the middle in front of you, so having it hanging more to the sides is okay.
These next two just came last week. I saw these capes on eBay and thought, oh, gotta have them. So I got them! The pink and blue in the first one caught my attention, as they do, and I loved the pattern of it. They both came in at $69.22 each. Made of rayon and easy to wash.
Loving the red and green and plan on wearing this one over xmas. Loving the longer length and dreamcatcher pattern.
Anyone would be hard up to find kimonos/capes like these anywhere in store for less than what I generally paid. In fact, while many stores in my local centre are now selling kimonos over summer, they aren’t always cheap, or nice. Many are colours I don’t like, fabrics that would not work, or shapes and prices I’m not interested in. In fact, kimonos like these are rare in stores in my state.
Will you be wearing your kimonos this summer? And if you aren’t having summer, will you be wearing them over your warmer clothes for winter so they pull double duty?
I absolutely love the minty floral kimono that you bought! I’ve been wanting to expand my wardrobe and add pieces that can work in both summer and fall. I think investing kimonos will help me with my wardrobe expansion. Thanks for the ideas on what to look for!
Loving those kimono with pom poms. Thanks for sharing those pictures. Should fill my closet with those outfits. Keep them coming!
It’s interesting how you make the Kimonos look casual! I loved it! Now, I’ll never look at Kimono the same way again!
