Way back when, I helped Susie (of Style Bubble fame) find a bright and colorful vintage kimono. She posted a picture of herself in it on her blog and I posted that picture here, and was pleased as punch that she loved it!
I am even MORE pleased to know that she really does wear it as part of her ongoing wardrobe, and continues to do so. I found this gorgeous picture of that same Shrimpton Couture vintage kimono as part of a feature story on her and her style!
Doesn't she look fantastic?
She can put prints together with the ease of a master painter, that girl can. Susie is a serious print pro!
She is one of my favorite girls to watch style -wise. She is entirely original and mixes high with low, new with old, and established designer with the latest you-have-not-even-heard-of-yet upcoming, young designers.
AND if you do take the moment to jump to the first time I posted the picture of this kimono on Susie you get the bonus of having two styling examples on how to wear a vintage kimono.
Makes for a triple does of happiness for my beautiful client post today!
PS the picture is from a new blog discovery - Tales of Endearment, run by Natalie Joos. You should go peek. The full story that this picture appeared in has lots more of Susie and her style too - jump here.
