For me, fashion blogging is a brilliant excuse to dress up. I can push myself to wear the craziest combinations from my wardrobe, all in the name of fashion. And just sometimes, I find something a little out there, that actually, I really like. This is one of those times.
The kimono was a Primark bargain from late Summer; worn a few times with black jeans and promptly forgotten about by Autumn. But after reading (and writing) about the winter florals trend, I thought I’d try it myself – and I knew this kimono was the piece to try it with.
Clearly I hadn’t quite let go of that Sixties festival vibe, as I grabbed an old floppy hat (Primark, £2) and crossed my fingers that I’d look more like Marianne Faithfull than Marc Bolan (sorry Mum).
But hey, this pretty plain black dress needed a bit of jazzing up. And, of course, my lovely over the knee boots needed another outing.
