“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!”
Blogging definitely inspires me. We are influential beings. When I first saw some of my fellow bloggers featuring vintage Kimono morning robes or dressing gowns, I knew this is a look I would wear.
My second purchase in NYC was this elegant Kimono with florals on a black background. It’s not vintage but I love the style. Made in USA.
I remember my mother having one that she wore when lounging around the house or at the beach. It even had a similar print.
I wore it to MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) and blended right in with the art.
I wore it to Chelsea Market in Manhattan (the place where Nabisco created OREO cookies in 1912–BTW Oreos are vegan).
Sitting on the loading dock of the old Nabisco Factory.
Next we took a walk on the High Line. Jean introduced us to this unusual park (former railroad) in Manhattan. I get most of my fashion inspiration from my daughter Jean, I copied her by starting a fashion blog. I miss reading her posts because she doesn’t post as often since she opened her eco boutique in Seattle.
This Kimono is like a duster, lightweight and will make a great beach coverup and perfect for lounging at home and entertaining guests.
We walked over to Macy’s–world’s largest store–and I had more fun on the old-fashioned escalators than shopping.
Is this a trend you’ve bought or would wear?
What have you bought that was inspired by a blogger?
