It’s time for Wardrobe Wednesday. We all know florals are a rage this season. Well in Miranda Presley's sarcastic tone (reference to Devil wears Prada) "Floral for summer, ground breaking! ". True floral and summer are synonyms. We have seen floral pants, skirts, rompers. I thought I will add my personal quirky twist to floral trend "A Kimono inspired summer dress" from Qvendo.com.
I am wearing :
Kimono inspired floral dress - courtesy Qvendo.com
Pumps - Marks and Spencer
Rings - Stilettos Diary Shop
Chain - pepperfry.com (got it during 50% sale for a very good bargain)
Bag - from Thailand (gift from Dad - messenger bag converted into a clutch)
Trench - Coldust collexns
On my nails - Maybelline colorama nail paints - "Laranja citrico" and "Amarelo"
I love William Shakespeare's poetry. We have incorporated Shakespeare's famous sonnet "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?". Kimono and summer create a beautiful poetic image. Hope you liked the poetic description of Kimono.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st.
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
Firstly I would like to apologise to Qvendo team for publishing this post late. I was extremely held up with personal work. Thank you so much Qvendo team for understanding. A great team to work with. Not only are your products, service great but also it feels like I am collaborating with family.
There are many ways to rock the kimono trend which seems to be picking up in the fashion circuit. You can restyle the dress into jacket and wear it over skinny jeans, dress and bell bottoms to add Japanese twist to the outfit.
Experiment with nail colors. Yellow and purple is an amazing color combination. Nail paint are like your accessories, it defines the outfit sometimes or adds the edgy contrast required.
Accessorize in a right way. Few statement rings, chain should do the trick. If you feel kimono is overwhelming when compared to your style sense just add a summer trench and sunglasses. It transforms into a beautiful everyday outfit. From party wear to everyday outfit you can recreate and restyle kimono to suit your needs.
Hope you liked the poetic kimono twist to summer. I shall wait for all your comments. I shall announce the winner of the giveaway tomorrow on the same post.
P.S. I have been suffering from mild conjunctivitis hence I am not allowed to wear eye makeup.
