SMC: Dress, Kimono & Wedges

kimono and dress

I went nuts buying kimonos for layers…

I need to put them to more use…

Initially, my thoughts were to tie colors carefully…but now I think a solid dress of any agreeable color could be a good-enough canvas for the flashy-ness of the kimono.

I do tend to prefer them belted…as they tend to go off-shoulder quick otherwise…I hate adjusting my clothes in public…I’d rather they stay put 🙂

Black Lace from Express

This one seems to be one of the easier ones to wear…

Idea: all black…any complimentary solid…black/white combos…black/tan combos

Longer Floral from Express

The first…fun to wear…but busy.

Black with pinks, blues and white…it’s busy.

Idea: solids so as not to complete with the pattern

maybe a black/white combo…I’d have to be in the mood

Shorter Floral from Express

Easy to throw on…with all black.

It’s busy, but not as busy as one with more colors…

Idea: solids…maybe black/white combos…

Longer Palm Print from Express

Tags off…but still unworn…

I’ve never worn this one out…I always find a reason to take it off and go another route…

Idea: solids…maybe black/ivory combos or black/pink combos…

but again…it is SO busy…

I love it in the picutre…but so far, my efforts have been failures!

Long Floral from NYCO

Dramatic at 5’2″ ;o)

This one is long and has fringe…it reminds me of Wendy Beauchamp from Witches of East End [herehereherehereherehere – disparities between television and modesty are easily remedied 🙂 ]…liked the show…and the books for the most part.

Idea: solids…it’s just too much to have any other color competing…

my typical garish baubles would be too much too…black only…

And this…Infant’s

She’ll share!  Clearly white top & black jeans for this one 🙂

Time for trial & error and keep a list of ideas!

Uniqueness and interest via layering…
