The Asian Part of Wasian


I've had this kimono sitting around for a while...trying to find the perfect way to style it. My aunt gave it to me about a year ago (from her Buddhist temple. The best way to find the best kimonos.) and ever since then I've tried it on so many times, and to no avail. It's a lot longer than the more trendy kimonos that we've been seeing recently, more like traditional kimonos in the length and style. However, what I really like about this one is that while the sleeves are loose, they're not as big as a really traditional kimono, so that makes this a little easier to style for the every day.

As you can probably see from my recent looks, I'm really into layered necklaces and simple v-necks. I definitely utilized that here, with one of my absolute favorite necklace combinations and my trusty Target V-Neck. I actually self-distressed these jeans too, so if you want to know how I did that I'd be happy to do a tutorial. I kind of wish they came out better, but maybe I'll distress another pair now that I (somewhat) know what I'm doing. 

For a quick last note, on my lips is Lancome's Crushed Rose, which I talked about in my 5 Fall Favorites! It's such a pretty flush of color that looks really natural.
