turning Japanese: the kimono

(kimono - topshop...black leggings - topshop...black cami - new look... boots - new look)

i've had my eye on a kimono for ages now, but just haven't been able to find the right one. however, when i was shopping in westfields at the weekend i found the perfect one in the topshop sale - at the BARGAIN price of just £16! can't go wrong!

i'd been a bit picky with kimonos as i had a specific idea of what i wanted in my mind, i do this a lot and it normally leads to me being let down as i seem to make things that don't exist - leading to me being moody. oops. i wanted one that was somewhat oversized, and had huge slouchy sleeves, and all the ones i'd found had either been too short or a weird design. this badboy was just perfect though. i love the bright design, as it will enhance my black wardrobe effortlessly. it's great for just chucking on over leggings or shorts, and would be perfect for festivals etc (not that i'm going to any...wah).

another piece of this outfit that i adore is my boots. these are the dupes from new look,  and trust me were very very hard to track down! i rang everywhere in london, all sold out...and my local branches were as well. but, in a twist of fate,  i randomly decided to try milton keynes branch again, and lo and behold...they had one pair left in my size! hurrayyy for having huge feet! they were a bargain at just £26.99 with my student discount, and i just loveee them! i know they're a bit clumpy etc but they go with everything, and will be excellent in the winter with big tights and dresses or jeans :) love building my winter wardrobe!

so im pretty chuffed with my bargains! :) hope you like them too :) xo
