So, I went shopping…
I’d been eyeing this fabulous silk kimono for a few months, tried it on about half a dozen times, and told myself time after time that I have nothing to wear with it, and the colours are a bit challenging to say the least (read: not blue, red or pink). And yet I kept going back to the shop, try it on, talk some sense to myself (to no avail) etc etc…
And then I just bought it.
Yes, a black silk kimono. A bit over my budget, too. OK, a lot over my budget, whatever… It was a birthday present, from me to myself. And I will wear it forever. With everything.
OK, maybe not with everything, but a lot.
What on earth am I going to wear with this kimono??? More to the point, when and where am I going to wear it???
I consider myself a rational shopper, almost to the point of being boring (Hello, have you seen my collection of striped t-shirts?!?)
But I think there is something my very rational and functional wardrobe lacks: something absolutely fabulous, luxurious and frivolous. I need more fabulousness and fun in my life! And yes, I know you can’t buy that. But a fab silk kimono is a good start in the right direction, nevertheless.
Why? How should I know! I’m just trying to justify a totally absurd purchase to myself, and that sounded smart. You know, as if it makes sense. Sort of…
And you know what? I love this silk kimono. It feels fabulous on my skin…

So, any ideas? What should I wear this kimono with?
