Black Kimono

Hello, welcome and thanks for visiting The Cooking Wardrobe. Hope you've had a great weekend. Another Sunday and this is what I put together for church.

Every shopaholic would tell you how they happened upon a tiny little corner store, went in out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised.  This is the story of how I got this black kimono.  In fact I was so happy with my find, I didn't even check the name of the store. Ooops, but never mind, I am pretty sure I will check it out again.  Of course I know where it is, I do remember how to get there, trust me :-).

Linking up to Visible Monday.

    1. Thanks Glenda. Well, there isn't a tag on it that tells what sort of material it is made of. It feels like cotton on the inside and silk on the outside. Crepe de chine maybe?

  11. Wow! Don't think I've seen such a beautiful kimono style top in ... well, ever! You really do need to go back and see what other treasures you can find! Beautiful the way you've styled it, especially with the evocative skirt print and leaf necklace. Wonderful, and lucky! But styled with skill ... no luck there, just talent!
