Are you ready for this new look? Be prepared to get yourselves hanging out at the edge of your seat: the kimono has officially arrived!

Silky smooth with sleek lines and beautiful embroidered accents, this killer red kimono is not just meant to be kept in the house. Last fall, my friends and I went to A Current Affair, where vintage vendors from coast to coast pimped out the hottest merch. While it was a cold rainy day, nothing could make me happier than to splurge my cash on new clothes. Given that I literally lived for statement pieces, my eyes went weak at the sight of a red silk embroidered kimono. Long and straight with sleek angular cuts, it was destined to belong to me.

Although kimonos aren’t zero degrees Celsius-friendly, I ain’t ever letting that thing collect some dust.

See how much potential you can have with this?! Throw on some layers, grab your favorite jeans and channel your inner Mary-Kate Olsen.

DISCLAIMER: I bought my vintage DARE tee from Shop Exile, but you can get a similar shirt on Etsy. The clothes that don’t have hyperlinks are either vintage, out of stock or discontinued pieces. And with Starbucks, I am not sponsored by them.

Dreamer. Seeker. Achiever. Is there any other word that can't describe me? Born in Jakarta, raised in Singapore and educated in Los Angeles, I was bound to trot around the globe one #ootd at a time. While fashion has been a top interest, I also enjoy pop culture, beauty and traveling. Whether it be a fashion show, DIY-ing the latest catwalk-inspired accessory or going to a music festival, there is nothing that I can ever miss out in life. Hence, #LivinLaVariNaDah is born from the desire to not ever FOMO again!
