Item to Remix: Navy blue and orange boho inspired kimono. The fun thing about this piece is that I got it for 5 whole doll hairs on clearance at Rue 21! SCORE!
I originally styled this kimono with cut off denim shorts, a navy ribbed tank top and orange pointy toe pumps. I chose to accessorize with "Simply Me" statement earrings.
For another totally different styling option I wore this stretchy, navy blue pencil skirt as a tube dress and layered the kimono (knotted at the waist, over the top. Cognac colored flat knee boots, gold hoop earrings and a statement necklace in burnt orange rounded the look out.
In this look, I wanted to create a kind of faux-wrap dress. The kimono was layered over the same skirt/dress and cinched in (pulling the right side over the left) and belted with a cognac colored obi belt. I bloused the top out in the back a little bit to help with the "wrap" dress illusion. Color block wedges in cognac and sand tied the look together.
So, there you have it! I will be the first to admit that I do not make the most practical wardrobe choices. However, I am definitely committed to getting my money's worth out of them. I love having the opportunity to create a variety of looks using the same pieces. People always say to me that they have never seen me wear the same outfit twice. Well, this is why!
